For Lyrical Distortion, we sampled four variations of every note for every articulation, utilizing random cycling for authentic swift repetitive lines. In addition, we also recorded the articulations twice, to allow independent control of two guitars for double tracking.
The patches include single note picking, single note up picking, single note hammer-on’s, single note pull offs, performed power-chords (I and V), performed up power-chords (I and V) and more. Also, all patches are available as performed palm-mutes as well as non-muted.
NOTE: This product does NOT include, nor is it compatible with the Kontakt Player software.
It has been reported that it will work in the Kontakt 4 Player in Kontakt 4 Demo Mode for 15 minutes. However, we do NOT support the Kontakt 4 Player, only the full Kontakt sampler.
