Image-Line has announced the release of two new sound libraries for the FLEX virtual instrument in FL Studio 20.8.

Based on the Axe Forge and Bass Mace sample libraries for Directwave, Essential Guitars & Essential Bass Guitars feature multi-sampled electric and acoustic guitars and bass guitars by sound designer Saif Sameer.

The sounds have been enhanced with added details, processing and FLEX specific features. Physical modelling was used to add round robin variations to repeated notes for greater realism. Additionally, nuances such as fret noises, scratches, slides and string buzz have been provided by power-user and artist Johannes aka Umziky. The presets include various pick up, cabinet and guitar pedal effect simulations at a low CPU impact.

Both packs are available to download under the FREE tab in the FLEX library browser. FL Studio 20.8 or higher is required.
