NAMM 2009Cakewalk releases Craig Anderton's Electronic Guitars Expansion Pack for Rapture and Rapture LE

Cakewalk

Cakewalk has announced Craig Anderton's Electronic Guitars Expansion Pack, for Rapture and Rapture LE. Using Rapture's advanced engine and unique processing options, Craig has turned the sound of the electric guitar inside-out to create "stunning" synthetic sounds that retain the guitar's organic qualities.

As displayed in his 'Minimoog Tribute Expansion Pack,' Craig's programming style combines musicality and innovation and takes full advantage of Rapture's advanced synthesis capabilities. In the new Electronic Guitars Expansion Pack, he leverages LFOs, StepGenerators, FX, and creative use of modulators to do everything from layering to patch morphing to providing alternate bass sounds within the same patch. Craig has even created evocative one-finger chord patches that change from major to minor with mod wheel use.

Craig Anderton's Electronic Guitars uses sounds from PRS, Gibson, Peavey, and Fender guitars, as well as Roland's VG-8 guitar synth, to create unique textures that sound like nothing you've heard before, according to Cakewalk. "It's almost impossible to believe that all these sounds came from guitars," notes Cakewalk Project Manager Brian Desmond. "Craig has used Rapture to turn what should be familiar sounds into incredibly lush pads, massive basses, and synth sounds unlike any existing synthesizer. His unique '1-Finger Chord Progressions' and '1-Finger Rhythms' form complete riffs that can drive a song all by themselves. Craig has somehow managed to take the familiar and turn it into a unique, ground-breaking sonic experience."

According to Anderton, "I saw no reason to try and imitate traditional guitar sounds," although he concedes that there are some identifiable guitar sounds, such as a dazzling rock feedback lead. "The guitar can generate a huge variety of tones, which combined with Rapture's extreme signal processing and step sequencing options, produce a warm, organic electronic tonality that's possible only by using real strings as the sound source. Most people won't recognize that these are guitar sounds—but the soul of the guitar is at the heart of all of them."

Pricing & Availability

Craig Anderton's Electronic Guitars Expansion Pack is available to registered Rapture, Rapture LE, SONAR 7 & 8, and SONAR V-Studio 700 customers for $49 via download here. In addition to the programs and waveforms, the package includes 10 free audio loops crafted from these sounds, and a video detailing the story behind the programs.
