CI says: "On string instruments, one can cause a string to vibrate only in sections by touching it lightly at the appropriate point. This produces a pure and clear note of a cool quality. It is called ‘flageolet notes’ or ‘harmonics’."
Guitar Harmonics consists of an assortment of electric and acoustic guitars and basses. CI spent a lot of time finding the perfect setup to achieve a warm and realistic sound. In the end they decided to record the guitars tuned in open E with 3 Round Robin variations and several velocity layers. Besides, each instrument provides a lot of useful scripting tools such as note length control (release and attack), EQ switch, amp simulation, distortion and reverb amount.
These tools enable each instrument to produce a wide spread of sounds such as organic reverse guitars, fragile string notes or warm e-piano tones.
