ASAT Classic Variations

5 patches recorded with a G&L ASAT Classic Telecaster with an unusual pickup set-up....

The story

A few years ago, my wife and I visited a music store about to definitely close. After looking at every Telecaster in the store, I heard my wife said « this one looks great! ». It was indeed a beautiful instrument, and the microphone set-up was quite unusual (one simple-coil and one double-coil), so I had to hear it in action. It sounded as good as it looked: a warm and beautifully clean tone. Love at first hear!

Moral of the story: always listen to your wife.

I sampled my G&L ASAT Classic into 5 main patches : DI, Clean, Swarm, Swell and Pad. DI and Clean have 3 round robins. Swarm is made with 4 aleatoric recordings of the same note. Swell and Pad are created from the original recordings through various effects and reverbs, and are modwheel sensitive. I designed several additional patches, like the DI and Clean Wide : one round robin in the center, one in left, one in right.

  • Really really great guitar sounds and pads

    This is a knock-out electric guitar library. If you know how to play samples like a guitarist, you can fool a lot of people with this awesome library. The only catch is that the release time is kind of long, so you can't play any short notes. I sure wish there was a release control. Even so, this library is super useful and super great-sounding. Awesome work!

  • Amazing sounded library!!

    Stunned with beautiful vibrations. When you press the keys for long, it will change the tone. This will be one of my favorite pad!!

  • Very well sampled guitars and pads!

    This instrument is VERY well crafted. The samples have no audible white noise at all, and the clean guitars are very dynamic with a nice mellow sound of a guitar that kind of sounds like an e-piano. The more ambient patches are very low in terms of default volume but tha's not a huge problem. I highly recommend running the three ambient patches together along with the either clean or the DI patch, to create an amazing soundscape!

  • I love this guitar

    The sound is great, I like the straightforward patches and the creative ones e.g. Swarm + reverse. I find it to be highly playable and inspiring. I wouldn't complain if there were a few options in the GUI to customize the sound a bit but this library just works!

  • Professional Quality!

    This was one of the first Sample Packs I downloaded on here, and man, what a joy that was! This is an incredibly good and professional collection of Inspiring samples! The pads are clean and bright, the swell is an incredibly easy-to-customize tool, the Swarms are a nice and characterful collection of plucks, and, not to be forgotten, the DI/Clean sounds are just incredibly good guitars! Really knocked it out of the park with this one! If you're curious to see what a beginner composer can quickly cook up with just this and some drums, feel free to check this link:
