Wavesfactory releases StrumGTR (Electric) for Kontakt and EXS24
31st March 2012

Wavesfactory has released StrumGTR (Electric) for Kontakt and EXS24, which features real strummed major and minor chords of an electric guitar (upstroke and down-stroke) recorded by direct input.

StrumGTR (Electric) has been sampled to represent the way real guitarists play. The company believes that when a guitarist strums softer, he doesn't strum all the strings, only the first ones depending if he upstrokes or down-strokes, that's why this instrument sounds so real to their ears.

Apart from the chords, they also sampled fret noises, open strings and mutes. All with 5 velocity layers and 4 round robin (repetitions). MIDI files are included with predefined patterns to help understand the way it works, the user can use these patterns to build their own.


Price: €9.95. Full versions required EXS24 and Kontakt 3.5 or higher are required.
