Recently I’ve become mildly obsessed with sounds that are somewhat chaotic yet beautiful at the same time. I wanted to try and recreate this feeling in my own music and decided since I’ve never created a sampler instrument before, it was about time I had a go at it.
The samples were made using my Fender Telecaster I’ve had since I was 14. Moving in minor thirds from C3 to C6, I recorded 12 takes on each note playing tremolo at random and inconsistent speeds. I recorded this directly into my audio interface, adding some in the box processing.
For me the instrument sounds best with a few tweaks to the envelope and a splash of reverb. I’ve made two versions of the instrument, one normal and one with the samples duplicated and panned to create a wider stereo image.
I had a lot of fun making this and I hope it can be useful for someone.
Leave a review to let others know what you thought of the instrument!
Lovely chaotic guitar movement
I particularly like the wide version. Add some washy reverb and EQ and it's quite useful, especially when layered with pads.
Good sound for adding some movement, particularly nice in the lower registers. I recommend a high pass to get rid of some of the rumble
