Sample Logic has announced that Cinematic Guitars, its new Kontakt Player-powered sample library geared for film, TV, game, and electronic composers, is now shipping.
Cinematic Guitars is a powerful collection of morphed guitar instruments harnessed in an adaptable "core effects sequencer" engine powered by the Native Instruments Kontakt Player. Derived entirely from true electric and acoustic guitar recordings by guitar guru Steve Ouimette (known for his work on the Guitar Hero franchise) this library is not a traditional guitar sample library, rather, it is an extensive collection of atmospheres, instrumentals, and percussives unlike any ever heard before. Taking it one step further, Cinematic Guitars gives users the power to create and manipulate custom instruments using the first ever "core effects sequencer" designed by Sample Logic and built into the Kontakt engine.
This library is all encompassing, exploring infinite timbres and emotions through its collection of over 1000 instruments and multis, starting with bizarre, dark, euphoric, spiritual, electronic sounds and going far beyond.

Cinematic Guitars has an MSRP of $399.99 and is shipping now for Windows and Mac OS X (Intel) in Stand-alone and VST, Audio Units and RTAS instrument plug-in formats. There is native 64-bit support for stand-alone and plug-in versions on both Mac OS X and Windows.
