"Guitar" is a Live library made by Detunized's lead sound designer Stephan Marche. The Live Pack contains the sounds of a stock acoustic guitar that was fitted with 3 steel and 3 nylon strings.
Each of the 6 strings was recorded chromatically in two passes - thumb and plectrum. The sounds were captured with a contact and a condenser microphone into dual-mono files. These files are phase-aligned and thus the sound of the two microphones can be blended seamlessly by a dedicated macro control that comes pre-mapped in each rack.
Besides the main sounds a variety of more than 50 side noises like string scrapes and squeaks were recorded. With these additional sounds a nice amount of realism can be dialed in to the instruments.
"Guitar" contains 2 guitars and 3 bass presets plus a drum machine that is built around the side-noises and body hits. Additionally some interesting adaptions from the original sounds are included. These adaptions extend the library with flexible pad and soundscape generators.
"Guitar" Live Pack is available as download at the Detunized webstore for 9.00 Euro.
