Ample Sound releases "Ample Metal Eclipse" Virtual Electric Guitar

Ample Sound

Ample Sound has announced the release of Ample Metal Eclipse (AME), which is modeled on ESP Eclipse I. It is the first instrument of the Ample Metal series.

AME has a 3.5 GB sample library which records each single fret. It features 8 articulations including Sustain, Palm Mute, Artificial Harmonic, Hammer On & Pull Off, Legato Slide, Slide in & out. The Legato articulations can be used to achieve legato notes of any duration, pitch and polyphony.

Differences from other Ample Guitars:

  • Most widely used tuning (C G C F A D) in contemporary heavy music. Regular tuning can also be achieved by tuning up low C String.
  • Strummer system specifically designed for heavy music. All chord presets and strum patterns have been remade for the context.
  • Cycle+: When toggled on, sample cycles can reach up to 24 (default is 8), which significantly enhances repetitive notes in heavy music. No more bland and robotic 'machine gun effect'.
  • Automatic switch between Sustain, Palm Mute and Artificial Harmonic by velocity layers. No keyswitch is needed.
  • Automatic stroke noise applied to solo mode, making metal riffs more realistic.

Price: $119. An introductory price of $99 is available until October 12th, 2015.

All demos are available for download as projects for different DAWs (e.g. Cubase, Logic, Pro Tools, Sonar, Live or MIDI).
