Sample Logic announces Cinematic Guitars 2

Sample Logic has announced Cinematic Guitars 2, a new collection of over 1200 instruments and multis for Kontakt Player and Kontakt.

In creating a sequel to CG, the designers at Sample Logic went all the way back to the fundamentals of the recording process, where they re-conceived and invented new ways of creating and capturing unique sounds derived entirely from real guitars, a big part of which came from the destruction and mutilation of real guitars during the recording process. From guitars being chained up, drilled, shattered, sledge hammered, and set on fire to the elegance and pristine air of bowed and prepared guitars, all off which were carefully manipulated and morphed to craft a library that they say sounds like no other.

Interface Controls
CG2 hosts a collection of interface controls providing over 40 unique sections of onscreen effects and parameters. The main foundation of the interface is built upon Sample Logic's "multi-core effect sequencer", first introduced in the original Cinematic Guitars. Now, in CG2, this interface has been brought to a new level with the ability to control effects by assigning tempo-synced step sequencers and LFOs to any instrument parameter and the option to sequence the bypass feature of each effect in realtime. In addition, all loop-based instruments can be controlled, effected, and manipulated at the transient slice level directly from the waveform view. CG2 also employs the new 4-band SSL EQ with multi-core sequencer functionality.

How It's Organized
Cinematic Guitars 2 is divided into 3 main categories: Atmospheres, Instrumentals and Percussives. Each contains a variety of unique sounds such as: explosive impacts, industrial kits, tempo-synced melodic & rhythmic loops, arpeggiated instruments, atmospheres, leads, pads, synths, transitions, stingers, and a collection of deeply sampled traditional guitar instruments. If you are familiar with any of Sample Logic's previous products, then you will feel right at home with how this library is categorized.

Triggers
CG2 introduces a new feature called "Triggers". TRGs provide 48 unique effect chains that can be triggered from any one or combination of six on-screen key pads and by key-switches on the keyboard map. This allows for total on-the-fly performance control and the ability to drastically effect the sound of any instrument instantly and non-destructively. With the touch of a pad or key, trigger effects can be instantly activated or bypassed. TRGs can also be triggered via the "Arppegigater" and can also be used with loop-based instruments on a transient slice basis.

Multi Script Macros
One of the biggest features introduced in CG2 is the powerful "Multi Script Macros" feature. Every Multi in CG2 contains up to 6 Macro knobs that can be assigned to control any combination of interface parameters. Multi script macros are completely customizable and can be easily created and saved as custom multi macros, simply add or subtract them by using the plus and minus buttons on the multi interface. By design, any combination of instrument interface parameters can be assigned to a single macro. Whether performing live or automating a multi in a DAW, these Macros are the perfect production solution.

  • Atmospheric/Ambient Soundscapes and Stinger Construction Kits.
