Ueberschall has announced the release of Twelve String Electric, a new Elastik Player soundbank offering the sounds of a 12-string electric guitar.
There is something magical about the sound of the 12-string electric guitar. Its natural harmonics produce a rich, bright, sound that is immediately recognizable and hugely evocative. This library captures that sound to perfection with a substantial collection of multi-part performances that are ideal for building your next summer hit around.
With approximately 5GB of data spread across nearly 700 loops and phrases, Twelve String Guitar makes it incredibly easy to build a complete 12-string performance. The loops are organized into 80, 100 and 120 bpm groups and, within each group, multiple phrase sets are provided with both dry and FX versions of all phrases. Each phrase set itself consists of three musical sections that could, for example, be used as verse, chorus and outro. The main parts are all 16 bars in length.
For each musical section, two different guitar parts are included. A mono part plays the main line while a left/right (dry) or stereo (FX) part doubles the theme. These options provide a super-wide stereo image but also ensure 100% mono compatibility. In the FX versions, we have added top-quality reverb and delay processing to create a fabulous ambience, making these loops ready to use. The dry versions allow you to apply your own choice of effects to suit your mix.
The electric 12-string guitar brings an instant late-60s vibe to any pop tune and this library can deliver that characterful jangle with ease. However, with its laid back feel, and beautifully performed strummed and arpeggiated chord parts, Twelve String Electric is also a perfect library for modern pop. If you need some of that 12-string magic to inspire your next song writing session, this library is an ideal choice.
The Electric 12-String Guitar is available for purchase for 99 EUR.
