Sub51 has announced the release of its new sample library Beyond Guitar, featuring a range of hauntingly beautiful pads, inspirational loops and one-shot samples sounding far-removed from their 6-string origins.

Various proprietary sound design techniques were used to transform the raw sounds from various guitars into something completely new and un- guitar-like, blending the characteristics of synthesis with the organic texture of real instruments. The large library of loops provide rhythmic backdrops and melodic sequences that would fit into a number of modern musical genres from ambient to hip hop.

Beyond Guitar’s generous selection of one-shot samples cover a lot of tonal ground and can be used to create custom rhythm loops or ‘ear-candy’ punctuations. In total there are 33 Tempo syncʼd loops, 76 one-shot Click, Scrapes and Pops, 56 one-shot Effects, 33 Loop Slices, 20 editable Pads and 33 unearthly ambient Spaced one-shots. Further additions include the loops supplied in Apple Loops format and MIDI files for the loop sliced instruments.

The sample library is available for the full version of Kontakt 6.5.3 or higher and Logic Pro X’s Sampler, priced £19.95 GBP. It is on sale for £14.96 GBP until June 2nd, 2021.
