In Session Audio has announced the release of two sound Expansions for its Guitar Swell, a virtual instrument sample library for Kontakt and the Free Kontakt Player designed to easily create soundtrack-worthy ambient guitar performances with an emotional quality.

Since the launch of Guitar Swell “ambient guitar” and the effects that help create the sound have continued to develop in cool and exciting ways. We wanted to capture that sound, as well as expand Guitar Swell’s palette of guitars. To that end, we’ve developed two new Expansion packs.

Expansion 1 introduces four new instrument options: Fender Fretless Jazz Bass, Rickenbacker Lap Steel, Gretsch Jet Baritone, and Fender Telecaster.

For Expansion 2, In Session Audio sampled guitars through some of the most desirable pedals used by ambient artists: Microcosm Hologram, Pladask Elektrisk Fabrikat, EarthQuaker Devices Afterneath, Walrus Audio Slötvå, and Fairfield Circuitry Shallow Water.

The update also includes a dozen new snapshot patches (each with unique chord progressions built-in), hand-crafted “backwards guitar” sample sets, ambient noise sample sets of the ocean, rain and cassette tapes and samples from a MXR Sub Machine octave/fuzz pedal.

In celebration of the Expansion packs, Guitar Swell (including the Expansions) is on sale for $99.97 USD until June 26th, 2022 (regular $199.97 USD).
