Orange Tree Samples has released a new version of Evolution Acoustic Guitar - Steel Strings, a sample library for Kontakt. This updated version has a completely new interface and a rewritten scripting engine.
Evolution Acoustic Guitar - Steel Strings enables keyboardists to easily and quickly create authentic sounding electric guitar parts without the need to hand edit MIDI.
New features include:
- Pick position modeling. This feature realistically reproduces the timbral differences of a string plucked in different areas.
- External presets. All the effects, mapping, and performance settings can now be stored in external preset files. That means that you don't have to reload the entire library to audition different presets. It also means that the presets can be easily shared with other Evolution users.
- Reduced memory footprint. Using dynamic sample purging, the Evolution guitar engine only loads the articulations you're currently using to reduce memory usage and speed up loading time.
Price: $179. There is currently a re-introductory price of $139 until June 30th, 2012.
Evolution Acoustic Guitar Steel Strings requires the full retail version of Kontakt 4 / 5.
