Echo Sound Works has released a free virtual instrument for Windows and Mac.

Vinyl Guitar is a uniquely sampled guitar that is designed to work well for production of Lofi, Chill, Hip Hop, Trap and Pop music.

To capture the sound, we sampled a guitar twice. Once for the main sampling and a second time to resample it into an actual record player. It was an incredibly tedious process but it was worth it!

Then instrument includes controls for fret noise, string buzz and pick noise. It also includes a reverb and you can shape the attack, release and dynamics of the sound.

Vinyl Guitar is a free download in VST3 and AU plugin formats from the Echo Sound Works website.

You can also grab some additional presets for the plugin from Cool Wav. The String Theory sound pack features a collection of 10 presets.
