Electric Guitar Agile Septor RN CP 8string
I was composing channel ident for finnish TV channel somewhere around 2010 and I bought this guitar for playing some riffs and noodles to project, but ended doing with more familiar 6 string instead.
Agile Septor RN CP 8 string has good long decay and clean pickups. I recorded guitar straight to old trusty Steinberg MR816x Hi-Z input for cleannest possible sound. This time I only sampled one velocity/intensity but 5 round robin and every single notes! Maybe got too far with this, but why not. Some famous guitarist said once: “People say less is more. How can less be more? More is more!” Intonation is not strongest qualities in this kind of guitar since neck is so short.
I hope this instrument gets more use in sampled domain than me almost never have time to play it.

A guitar that behaves like one
Ableton Live, my DAW of choice (by which, of course, I mean the one I pragmatically ended up using) has several guitars in its instrument rack. I also have guitars in Kontakt. Few of them actually sound like guitars. But the AGASRNCPES (that initialisation is your if you want it, Timo) is not only convincing, it’s inspiring and works as both rhythm and lead. Naturally, it takes some adaptation to learn how to pitch-bend like a guitarist on a MIDI keyboard and on mine at least it’s not easily possible to replicate/imitate slides or ‘zooms’… Nevertheless, if you don’t have a real guitar to hand, you can definitely wring some emotion from this one. Better yet, if you know your way around your plugins you can do something better than merely impersonating a real electric. You might even create something original and fresh.
