Finally, high-quality console EQ, two compressors, tape emulation, reverb, delay, and tape delay allow for a complete, release-ready guitar sound entirely within the instrument.
ELECTRIC SUNBURST captures the sound of a classic guitar chosen for its rich, warm, and versatile sound. A pristine signal path was kept throughout, including high-end cables, vintage tube preamps, and high-resolution converters, to ensure that every nuance of this legendary instrument was accurately captured. As the bridge and neck pickup signals were recorded separately, you can take full control of the mix balance. What’s more, a condenser microphone was mounted above the strings to capture fine sonic details and add punch and realism to the performance.
Choose from 154 patterns, covering a wide range of realistic riffs, arpeggios, strummed intervals, and chords. The patterns are conveniently grouped into 31 well-coordinated song presets suitable for everything from contemporary pop to electro. The autochord mode and convenient voicing presets allow anybody to perform or program convincing electric guitar parts, no matter their musical background.
The library provides individual signals of the bridge and neck pickup, plus a microphone. Thousands of loops, single notes, and noises were sampled over a wide range of fret positions, and played both with plectrum and fingers in open, muted, and flageolet articulations. This provides unprecedented flexibility, realism, and tonal variety. Tuning, timing, and humanization settings make for genuine live-sounding performances over many musical styles.
