Orange Tree Samples has released Evolution Infinity, a retro 80s electric guitar sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt and Kontakt Player.
All articulations were sampled with a generous length of sustain and then the applicable samples were seamlessly looped using phase-coherent loop points.
As you can imagine, for a guitar that specializes in showstopper lead guitar solos, we were sure to sample everything from pinch harmonics and tapping to pick slides and other performance effects. We also recorded the legato articulations with four round-robin for realistic variation when playing fast trills.
Evolution Infinity is outfitted with our Evolution guitar engine which provides you with a wealth of appointments: an innovative strumming pattern editor, automatic chord detection, and a robust effects engine. The library includes many factory presets for ready-to-use classic 80s rhythm and lead electric guitar tones that fit right into the mix.
Evolution Infinity features
- Built-in effects engine for instantly-usable electric guitar tones.
- Adjustable pick position using our proprietary physical modeling technology.
- Powerful mapping system that lets you set how you want to trigger articulations, using conditions such as velocity ranges, MIDI CCs, latching and non-latching keyswitches, and more.
- Multitracking up to quadruple tracking.
- 5.79 GB (compressed to 3.5 GB using the lossless NCW audio format) of 24-bit samples.
- Articulations such as sustains, palm mutes, mutes, natural harmonics, squeals, and tapping, plus special effects like string slaps, chugs, pick scrapes, and more.
- MIDI articulations for instant octaves, grace notes, buzz trills, whole-step slides, whole-step hammer-ons, and slides (velocity-based and tempo-synced).
- Legato samples for slides, hammer-ons, and pull-offs.
- The articulations have 3 dynamics, 2 pick directions (when applicable), and 2x round-robin–except for the legatos, which have 4x round-robin.
Evolution Infinity for Kontakt Player is available for the intro price of $139 USD until December 1st, 2017 (regular $179 USD).
