MG Steel String Harmonics

A small body Cort acoustic guitar with rich sounding harmonics...

The story

I bought this beautiful Cort acoustic guitar for my son’s birthday, after visiting London’s Denmark Street. This is a small body guitar with lots of character, and I particularly noticed the harmonics sounded very rich and full. So I sampled all the harmonics, and here it is as my first contribution to this amazing Pianobook community!

The MG Steel String Harmonics instrument is sampled with three round robins and three velocity layers, ensuring a very responsive, human feel. You can also adjust the attack time and hold notes to create a nice pad effect. I have also created a unique pan effect (when the Pan FX switch is activated) which changes the pan position of each note played by a random amount – to create an etherial effect, as heard in places in the demo track.

I hope you enjoy the instrument and find it useful.

  • So Rich

    This a definite must-have. It has a such a unique, but undeniably "guitar" harmonic sound that fills a track well. The GUI thing is bit annoying, there are two .nki's, and I think one of them you can find the file for, the other not..? But that's not a big deal, free amazing sound. This is good.
