Evolution Rock Standard reproduces the sound of an electric guitar that holds a central role in the history of rock music. These guitars have continued in popularity through the decades, featuring in many landmark recordings and performances. The level of craftsmanship involved in the production of these electric guitars is audible though their sonic depth and rich, singing sustain. Its dual humbucker pickups provide bold mid frequencies, supplying ample presence for crunchy and high-gain tones as well as generous warmth for clean tones. The Evolution Rock Standard sample library captures the instrument with multiple dynamics, round-robin variations, all the articulations required to create production-ready rock guitar rhythm and lead tracks.
In developing Evolution Rock Standard, Orange Tree Samples teamed up with Rosewood Recording Company. Guy Randle, the owner and recording engineer at Rosewood Recording Company, incorporates analog audio equipment to sculpt and emphasize desirable tonal qualities of the guitar. For the sampling session, he brought guitarist Michael Dowdle. Michael Dowdle's session guitar work includes recording for artists such as Marie Osmond, The Osmond Brothers, John Schneider, David Archuleta, and The Jets as well performing on numerous movie and TV scores. He has also played on stage with artists like Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys, The Coasters, Sam Cardon, and others.
