Soft background noises created from an electric guitar....

The story

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!

  • Great swells

    Great tone, but definitely limited playability with the long release time. Very nice to put through pedals and amps.

  • Useful Guitar Swells

    I'm a guitarist with a fancy sustaining pedal but I've found myself reaching for this to save time. Quite a variety of frequencies on the GUI for getting that Daniel Lanois type of sound.

  • It does the job well: ideal for long background tones

    This is certainly not the most playable library around Pianobook, but I use it often for long, sustained pedal notes. There is constant movement in the samples so it doesn't get boring and gives some spice to the overall sound.

  • Very useful for background fill

    I enjoyed this and even had some fun running this trough some pedals to make it suite my project more!! Thanks so much for the upload!! I am looking forward to more
