Ilya Efimov Sound Production (IESP) has announced the release of a new Kontakt-based software instrument - Ilya Efimov Nylon Guitar.
The sound of this library is described as "rich and sensual, transparent and incredibly expressive". IESP achieved "fantastic realism" by using 14 dynamic colors for each note. You can use all frets for each string. The selection of the strings and positions can be both automatic and manual. The control over any parameter is available though Graphic User Interface and your sequencer. You can easily use any of 14 articulations, selecting a particular articulation that you need. Legato and glissando are implemented in the library. Using those features you can reach a higher level of realism. The library contains a great number of FX, such as side noises that will appear during the time one plays the guitar up to percussion effects.
