Ambient Guitar Tremors

70's Fender recorded with eBow tremors....

The story

I made this instrument using an old Dan Electro through an early 70’s Fender Princeton. I used an E-bow not for sustain but more as a tremolo effect. I was raking the E-bow back and forth across the strings . I mapped it across the keyboard so that the tempos of the tremors were all random. I like the higher range for an ethereal vibe, but try really low registers for some cool ominous pulses.

  • Interesting sound, but maybe not the most useful

    This guitar sound is well recorded, but it's sound is more akin to a synth with an arpeggiator than a guitar to my ears at least. It's interesting, but I can't see using it a lot in a track. It would quickly grow tiresome. I think it would make a lovely transition FX, though.

  • A simple patch for those who don't have a guitar & FX pedal to hand...

    This library deserves more than a stretched sample. I would like to have that consistent sample playback length across the keyboard as the sound is quite beautiful.

  • Lovely to blend

    The tremolo is very nice and it's easy to blend with other layers to give a little movement. I like the tone as well. GUI photo is nice but it would be great to have some options to sculpt the sound.

  • Nice for giving a mild electro spice

    I like the tremor it gives, and the waves. It has a very unique character so it should stand out when mixed with other libraries.

    Typically classy from Joshua. Great for adding some movement. Worth opening up Kontakt and playing with the settings to suit the track

  • Tremors and Chills!

    I love the character of this instrument. It's simple yet so effective. There are no options for you to manage, but I'm sure you will find many uses for it. I'd love to see an ADSR setting or at least dynamics control with the modwheel, and a custom delay controller would be simply amazing.
