Vir2 Instruments has announced the release of Fractured: Prepared Acoustic Guitar, an innovative new collection of instruments featuring creative and esoteric samples of various acoustic guitars.

Vir2 Instruments Fractured: Prepared Acoustic Guitar

With 2.3GB of compressed samples and more than one hundred new instruments, Fractured contains a massive collection of fresh sounds that all inherit the organic goodness of the acoustic guitar but stretch out into never-before covered territory.

Drum kits were made with mallets, fingernail scrapes, metal scrapes, cardboard scrapes and pouring rice over the guitar. Long evolving pads were built from acoustic guitar samples, blurring the line between electronic and acoustic. Playable and dynamic rhythmic loops, multitimbral arpeggiated creations, huge cinematic impacts, gritty electronic drums, gnarly and etherial melodic instruments… Fractured is a treasure trove of groundbreaking new material.

Fractured is powered by the industry-leading Kontakt engine. It is compatible with VST, AudioUnit, and RTAS (Pro Tools 7 & 8) plug-in formats allowing it to work seamlessly within any major sequencer, in addition to standalone use.

Fractured is available to purchase for $149.95 USD.
