Orange Tree Samples recently released a new electric guitar sample library for Kontakt 2/3 called CoreGuitar: Strawberry. CoreGuitar: Strawberry was designed with ease of use and playability in mind. Using Kontakt's powerful scripting engine, CoreGuitar: Strawberry intelligently interprets the input from your MIDI controller (or sequenced MIDI data) in order to produce realistic guitar tracks.
CoreGuitar: Strawberry has many features which, Orange Tree Samples says, set it apart from other electric guitar sample libraries. Many never-before sampled nuances have been captured, allowing CoreGuitar: Strawberry to attain "new heights in realism". While these details are subtle, they all contribute to the perceived realism of the library. Also, when adding distortion to CoreGuitar: Strawberry, these details are greatly magnified.
The library was sampled directly from the output of the guitar, with no post-processing, meaning you can apply your own guitar effects and amplifier or cabinet modeling. The articulations sampled range from plain sustains and various degrees of palm-muting to strikes, squeals, and artificial harmonics.
The library features:
- 1.57 GB of 24-bit samples.
- 2x intelligent round-robin sample cycling for both downstroke and upstroke articulations.
- Variable pre-pick noises
- Whammy bar effects.
- String resonation.
- Dynamic vibrato.
- Custom slides.
- Intelligent legato.
- Alternate tunings.
CoreGuitar: Strawberry is currently available for $119.95 (normally $129.95) as a direct download via the Orange Tree Samples web site.
