Hi everyone, I was having my morning tea when my spoon fell on my guitar getting stuck between the strings. The guitar was also connected to some granular effect processors mainly Soundtoys and Glitchmachines. I’ve captured and manipulated the sounds to create this instrument. Extra Saturation, Chorus, and Delay are controllable via GUI, and the mod wheel controls the LPF pro 53. I hope you like it. Julian – Made with Kontakt 6.6.0 –

Extremely processed guitar effects
This is a massive library with 26 different patches, and each one of them is completely different from the others. They all feature a very synthetic guitar sound, barely recognizable in many cases, and they come up with 3 extra options for the user to tweak, Distortion, Chorus and Delay, along with a filter bound to the modwheel or CC1, not visible through the GUI.
I find the sounds being very nicely sampled, and they can really give you tons of options. You are going to love them if you are into sci-fi SFX, guaranteed! There are not only SFX patches though, there are some nice musical ones as well. I really like the first (01) and the last (Without Loop). You can even try to layer some of the patches to create even more unique sounds, it's totally up to your patience and to your imagination.
Anything but a Guitar
I think Julian and I have pretty different taste. Every time i play with one his libraries i think its super cool but dont personally find it useful for the music i do. This one i think is cooler than usual. As i say in the title its anything but a guitar. It's a pretty big collection of weird sound effects and instruments. Some i could see being used in electronic music while some wouldn't sound out of place as sound effects in a video game. We dont often get sound effects on pianobook that aren't really meant to be played as instruments so i think this is extra cool. My favorites are some of the unpredictable pulsing rhythms and the water splash sound effect is really awesome. The GUI also offers a few very nice effects.
Spoontaneous Guitar Attack
The processing on this instrument is just enough to still be able to hear a little bit of the organic sound of the guitar. It has an attack that you wouldn't expect from a guitar and it sounds unique! The difference between the two key ranges (zones) is a little sudden, but with some knowledge about Kontakt that can be changed if necessary. But due to both the key ranges being quite different and lack of round robins it's probably best suited as a background element in your tracks.
