This is a sample library project we’ve been wanting to complete for some time and I believe we have something really special here for you! This instrument has a distinct and unique voice. Now that it is available as a virtual instrument I have no doubt that it’s musical effectiveness can be greatly expanded beyond of solely creating a groovy 60s vibe. 3 independent sample sources were recorded – neck and bridge pickup samples as well as microphone samples. I had this guitar rewired so I could use a stereo jack and record the neck and bridge pickups simultaneously. The mic samples really make this sample library unique. They give this instrument a very animated top end with the result being a bit of a acoustic-electric hybrid, giving us a closer emulation of a real sitar. This sampling process coupled with creative and flexible KSP scripting by Bo Clausen will give you many creative opportunities.
– 3 velocity layers for all the sustain samples.
– Independent Volume and Tone/EQ control of each sample source – bridge and neck pickups as wel las mic samples
– A very advanced scripted Pitch Bend and Vibrato control.
– Detailed Articulation control to emulate slurs (hammer-ons and pull-offs)
– Sampled Slides – both ascending and descending in half, whole and one and a half steps.
– Detailed KSP scripted control of Fretting Position on the neck of the guitar, including an Auto Fret Selection feature.
– A Key Switch Page where you can freely assign which key will trigger the various Key Switches.
– 9 different effects – each with its own Preset menus, so you can save and recall all the various parameters.
– And much more!
