The story

Fender Jaguar into Eventide Blackhole and Valhalla DSP Supermassive plugins.

April 19th 2019, Scientist captured the first ever image of a black hole.
April 20th, Eventide released their blackhole plugin for dirt cheap.

I am a guitar player by trade and it always finds it ways into my scores and music and as a lover of ambient music, the Blackhole plugin by Eventide and the newly released Supermassive by Valhalla DSP are staples in my guitar sound and tick every box. Gorgeous swells and pulses with deep modulation and vast reverb tails.

The low notes (D2 and below) stick the root note as played whereas E2 and up add harmonies for extra layers.

This is my first sample instrument I wanted to make, go easy and I hope you enjoy!

  • Awesome for Ambient Guitar

    As I've said before i love these guitar patches for layering with real guitar and i think this one is extremely useful. I think it would be great for the parts in ambient guitar music where they support the melody with complex chords that volume fade in so you don't hear the attack of the strum. This sounds exactly like that and since its a piano instrument you can create chords and progressions that would be very difficult or impossible on an actual guitar and have the ability for it not to be baked in and move around midi notes. It would be cool to have a GUI but im not complaining

  • Cosmic guitar for starseekers

    Sometimes, you press the keys and there is an absence of experience. You lift your fingers off the keys, then press them down harder, leaning forward to hear what might, if anything, occur. As your digits whiten and your ears strain, a most evocative emerging sound unfolds and then reality dissolves and the cosmic oneness presents itself. This is the nexus where tones meet transcendental intensity, this is more than an instrument just as Pianobook is more than a sample library. A life enhancing creative tool.

  • Really lovely spacey pad

    If you're looking for a spacey pad for the next planetarium show you have to score, look no further. This instrument was made for you. i was left wishing that it looped so that the sound would sustain, but it's still pretty useful and cool the way it is.

  • Swelly guitar pad

    This instrument has a very slow attack and a lovely full pad tone with a stronger bass end than I'd expected from a guitar-based instrument.

  • Amazing ambience included

    While it barely sounds like a guitar, this super extra ambient pad is very nicely done. While it offers no options to mess with the sound, the one and only single patch can sound either very spacey in the lows, and as you go up in pitch you might start noticing that the stretched samples offer a bowed-like texture that can be very interesting in times. I recommend you give it a try yourself and judge if it's the right sound for your next music track!
