Replika Sound has announced the release of RSG05 Chorus Guitar, a guitar instrument library for Native Instruments Kontakt.
The instrument was made by combining two steel string guitars. It is designed to provide a resonant wide stereo sound or a shimmering mono tone.
No synthetic Chorus or Stereo-Width Effects are used; it is all naturally achieved. It comes in both Picked and Finger-played versions.
RSG05 Chorus Guitar features
- 8,230 Samples.
- True random-robin note selection (5 for the most used articulations).
