Sonuscore has announced the release of the sixth entry in its Origins series of Kontakt instrument libraries: Muted Guitar & Harmonics.
Two electric guitars – played and processed totally differently – immediately carry you to a modern world of sound. Opening the whole spectrum: From delicate designed to rich and cinematic patches, it serves the sonority and flexibility, which made the guitar one of the most formative instruments of our time.
For this very special Origins, Sonuscore collaborated with the famous composer Mats Lundgren (Just Cause 2, Mad Max [Videogame], Generation Zero) from Pole Position Production. Mats recorded the guitars and processed them with his extraordinary precision.
“Electric Guitar Muted” features the sounds of a 2006 Fender American Deluxe Stratocaster with Samarium-cobalt pickups.
The muted guitar provides a very calm, but rich sound. It gives an incredible warm intonation overall when used as the base of a harmonic structure. With the Multi-Arpeggio-Designer [MAD] you can give the instrument a characteristic, modern, sometimes futuristic feel. Paired with the Harmonics, you achieve a very balanced and wide sound, right on the modern pulse of time.
“Electric Guitar Harmonics” brings the sounds of a 2003 Gibson SG with Seymour Duncan Phat Cat pickups.
With its shimmering, floating sound, the Harmonics are a great addition to the Palm Mutes. Create lively ambient pads or run impressive modern-sounding arpeggios with it: The possibilities are endless and usually just one preset away.
The amplifier used is a handwired Marshall 1974X 18w class A.
Muted Guitar & Harmonics is available at the intro price of 49 EUR until May 23rd. The regular price is 69 EUR.
