Auto Stroke Detection
With LPC LE's Auto Stroke Detection feature, LPC LE automatically detects the current beat position and identify proper stroke direction (down or up). There are several stroke detection modes and control the stroke direction can be controlled manually.
Double-tacking is a technique that is frequently used in recording guitar tracks. It gives the guitar track wide-spread stereo images and thickness. With LPC LE, double-tracking effect can be reproduced just by loading the double-tracked patch. No identical samples are played simultaneously in both channels.
Realtime Legato Slide
Realtime Legato Slide feature using 'real' legato samples is available in single note, 5th-dyad chord (power chord). Realtime Legato Slide feature reproduces real expressions of the human finger's legato slide that can not be reproduced with slide emulation by changing the pitch of the sample.
.kpe file (for Native Instruments Kore) included
Owners of both Kore 2 and Kontakt 3 can use the .kpe file that comes with the product. It is already double-tracked and the built-in amp simulator of Kore is already inserted to each channel. A 'double-tracked' and 'amp-simulated' guitar sound can be played just by loading the .kpe file.
LPC LE can be purchased as a download product from Prominy's online store for $169.
