Bolder Sounds releases "Guitarron" for Kontakt

Bolder Sounds has released Guitarron for Kontakt, which they say is the first sample library dedicated to this instrument.

The Guitarron is a 6 stringed fretless bass instrument that is commonly played in octaves in traditional Mariachi music. It has also been employed on recordings by rock-pop artists as Jackson Browne (Linda Paloma), Linda Ronstadt (Canciones de mi Padre) and the Eagles (Hotel California). It is the instrument that inspired Ernie Ball to create the Acoustic Bass guitar in 1972.


  • Samples recorded with a microphone and a contact pickup, each sound source type has 3 x Round Robin and 3 velocity layers. Harmonic samples are also recorded for both mic. and contact pickup.
  • Extensive KSP scripting featuring, amongst others:
  • Independent EQ and Volume control of each sample source.
  • An Octave Button with Timing and Randomization control for easy Mariachi style Octave voicing.
  • A sophisticated Auto-Slide page giving the user extensive control of KSP generated slides.
  • A Key Switch Page where you can freely assign which key will trigger the various Key Switches.
  • 7 different effects - each with its own Preset menus, so you can save and recall all the various parameters.
  • 20 example Kontakt instruments (.nki) that demonstrate sound sculpting flexibility and much more.

Price: There is an introductory price of $44.95 (25% off) until September 1, 2014.
