Modwheel has introduced a new Kontakt Instrument designed for “anyone who wants to explore the outer realms of where an electric guitar can take you”.

Roundwound contains a collection of 64 patches of textural, cinematic guitar performed by young New Zealand guitar aficionado Hugo Butler, as well as Mdodwheel’s Steve Roche.

The concept started with long, single-note individualistic performances layered upon each other with the mod wheel sweeping you through those layers, giving the user endless shaping possibilities. Of course, as happens at MODWHEEL, this was just the start and after weeks of sonic explorations in the Stella Maris chapel ROUNDWOUND took on a life of its own. Before long Steve became inspired and joined the fray and some fantastic textural guitar duets became an integral part of the library.

All 64 patches that make up the library have three separate mic positions (close, mid and far) with each mic having separate controls including pitching up or down an octave, giving even more sound manipulation possibilities. Each patch features Scatter Box, MODWHEEL’S own sync’d IRs as well as a step mod allowing for a huge range of rhythmic options.

Roundwound for the full version of Kontakt 6.7.1 or higher is on sale for the intro price of $69 USD for a limited time (regular $99 USD).
