MODWHEEL releases "Biscuit Tin Guitar" for Kontakt

MODWHEEL

MODWHEEL has released Biscuit Tin Guitar for Kontakt.

The sampled instrument is a one off original, hand crafted by Steve Roche. Steve has been making tin guitars and other odd instruments for many years for use in his soundtrack work with Plan 9 and with the various bands he performs with.

This particular example is a 4-string fretless with open G banjo tuning (D G B D). For sampling purposes the range of the instrument has been extended down to the E below the D of its natural range.

The instrument is fitted with a pickup and was recorded both acoustically as well as through a vintage fender twin reverb amp.

As an acoustic instrument the biscuit tin guitar has a unique sound that is caught somewhere between a dobro and a banjo. The electric version can sit between clean and a tin can being dragged behind a car, depending on your taste.

Features:

  • 35 Kontakt patches, both acoustic and electric, with finger and plectrum performance. Keyswitches operate the different note options i.e. Long, Short, Mute, Semitone Slide Up, Tone Hammer Off.
  • Dynamic keyswitching to aid performance with several velocity layers and at least 3 round robins. An FX panel on each patch gives the ability to adjust the sound to further suit your requirements.
  • Acoustic and electric biscuit tin guitar, finger and plectrum articulations, FX, kits and rhythms (BPM'd) & song patterns.
  • 24-bit 96 kHz multisamples (2873 samples).
  • 1.4 GB Core Library (657 MB via lossless compression).

The instrument has also been used for its percussive possibilities and there are several percussion kits and BPM'd rhythm patches. In addition there are a number of patches that play arpeggios and song patterns from a single key.

Price: $49. There is an introduction price of $29. Requires Kontakt 5.3.0 or higher.
