This is my first contribution to the Pianobook community.
I have developed what I hope will be a useful template for others to use and develop further. At the moment it consists of four microphone groups, each capable of four round robins.
If it is found to be useful then I can develop the template to include a range of microphone groups and round robins ranging from the current template down to the basic 1 group 1 round robin.
The included example is a full 5 octave recording of my Ibanez guitar through a volume pedal into my DAW. These are then run through a variety of delays and reverbs to create evolving textures that change with each note. The round robin functionality is included so that each note is slightly different from the others.
There is no note off functionality as of yet as the instrument is designed to sit in the background and create atmospheres and environments for your composition to sit in. The next step will be to include the note off groups and script for pianos and a purge samples function for each microphone group.
I hope that it helps you develop your samples further. I will be posting a tutorial on YouTube.
All the best!

My absolute go to for ambient guitars and it’s easily my most used Pianobook instrument. The GUI is fantastic and has a tonne of controls. It’s mind blowing that it’s free. Just make sure the Kontakt mod wheel is fully up on the UI keyboard once loaded.
Really amazing. Thanks !
Just remember to wind-up the mod-wheel to the immediate left of the virtual keyboard in Kontakt (click on the spanner icon to see this) in order to get some volume.
This instrument is lovely for ambient swells, pads and some Cocteau-esque atmospherics.
This is a must have. It’s simple in function but complex in tone. The richness is out of this world, you could sit for hours with a chord on loop. The crisp upper registers make the highs sing in a way that’s just delightful, you really hear the guitar here. While the mids/lows are more “pad” like they still have that analog fullness and warmth. Can’t say enough good things about this piece of wizardry.
