8DIO Natural Acoustic Series вЂвЂњ a studio collection of high-end deep-sampled acoustic instruments. Steel String Guitar is a deep-sampled (3.000 samples) pristine sounding Dreadnought. We recorded both fingered- and picked playing styles of the guitar, including hundreds of natural fret and release noises. In addition we also created 18 morphed patches which blends the guitar with a variety of other instruments (including Double Bass, Bulbul Tarang, Plucked Grand Piano, Regular Grand Piano, Synths etc).The diversity of the morphed patches widens the sonic range of the guitar, so you make it sound like anything from a modified acoustic bass to a mandolin/luther, from a morphed guitar-piano to a more ethnic sound guitar with resonators.
We also integrated live FX (ex. Delay, Verb, Screamer, Lofi, Convolution) into the patches, so you can trigger live FX on top of the patches by using key-switches. We also integrated a dual convolution reverb containing deep sets of both FX and normal based set of convolutions.
Steel String Strummer is the follow-up to our Steel String Guitar library. Steel String Strummer contains over 4.500 samples spread across 13 different chord types and 13 different rhythm types and utilizing our powerful x-legato technology, which allows you to blend any chord and rhythm at any time giving you an infinite amount of options. Steel String Strummer is a round-robin based strum library, so even if you trigger the same chord/rhythm multiple times вЂвЂњ you will get natural subtle variation.
Steel String Strummer contains all the classic chords (ex. Major, Minor, Maj7, Min7, Dim7, Dom7) used in traditional songwriting, but also contains more elaborate chords (ex. Maj7B5, Min79, Dom7#9, Sus2, Sus4, 11s Alt Bass and Add11Alt2). The rhythm section is equally deep from traditional type of strum rhythms to more genre specific ones (ex. country, fingered arped, muted chugs). In addition we also recorded muted strums of all rhythms, which gives additional options to design new types of rhythms. Steel String Strummer also contains intelligent fret noises and velocity based end chords, which allows you to make a natural ending to a chord progression by playing hard on keyboard.
We also integrated live FX (ex. Delay, Verb, Screamer, Lofi, Convolution) into the patches, so you can trigger live FX on top of the patches by using key-switches. Steel String Guitar comes in both 24 and 16 bit versions and have full purge function (ability to decide which parts of library you want, to conserve RAM).
