Ample Sound has released Ample Guitar Hollow (AGH), a new virtual instrument plug-in for Mac OS X and Windows in AU, AAX, RTAS and VST plug-in formats.
Modeled on a Gibson ES 335 hollow body guitar with neck pick-up with fingerstyle, it sounds warm and soft, comfortable with Jazz Fusion and Blues.
AGH has a 3.26 GB sample library which records each single fret. Dry samples and no dynamic processing are applied.
There are 9 articulations including Palm Mute, Dead Note, Natural Harmonic, Artificial Harmonic, Hammer On & Pull Off, Legato Slide, Slide in & out.
The Legato articulations can be used to achieve legato notes of any duration, pitch and polyphony both on Normal and Strummer mode.
Differences from other Ample Electric Guitars
Ample Sound redesigned sample structure. Taking Sustain group as an example, velocity layers and cycles have been greatly improved for samples from 5 to 15 frets, altogether from 469 to 742 samples. Articulation samples are also improved from single cycle to double cycle. Improved sample structure is more appropriate to playing style of electric guitar, giving more humanization.
Price: $119. An introductory price of $89 is available until November 24th, 2016.
All demos are available for download as projects for different DAWs (e.g. Cubase, Logic, Pro Tools, Live or MIDI).
