8DIO releases "Guitar Steel String Strummer" for Kontakt

8DIO has released the Guitar Steel String Strummer for the full version of Kontakt 4.2+.

Steel String Strummer contains over 4,500 samples spread across 13 different chord types and 13 different rhythm types utilizing 8DIO's powerful x-legato technology, allowing the blending of any chord and rhythm at any time and giving an infinite amount of options. Steel String Strummer is a round-robin based strum library, so even if the user triggers the same chord/rhythm multiple times they still get natural subtle variation.

Steel String Strummer contains all the classic chords (e.g. Major, Minor, Maj7, Min7, Dim7, Dom7) used in traditional song-writing, but also contains more elaborate chords (e.g. Maj7B5, Min79, Dom7#9, Sus2, Sus4, 11s Alt Bass and Add11Alt2).

The rhythm section is equally deep from traditional type of strum rhythms to more genre specific ones (e.g. country, fingered arped, muted chugs). In addition they also recorded muted strums of all rhythms, which gives additional options to design new types of rhythms.

Steel String Strummer also contains intelligent fret noises and velocity based end chords, which allows making a natural ending to a chord progression by playing hard on keyboard.

8DIO has also integrated live FX (e.g. Delay, Verb, Screamer, Lofi, Convolution) into the patches, so you can trigger live FX on top of the patches by using key-switches. Steel String Guitar comes in both 24 and 16-bit versions and has a full purge function (ability to decide which parts of library you want, to conserve RAM).
