Soundiron has announced the release of Axe Machina, a virtual electric guitar library that is designed for unleashing pure metal destruction. It's built for the full version of Kontakt 6.2.2 or higher.
For this library Craig Peters sampled his custom Kiesel Aries multi-scaled 7 string guitar, tuned to A Standard. This instrument features 24 frets, a swamp ash body, birdseye maple neck, Guitarmory Polaris pickups with D'Addario XL 10-64 gauge strings. The swamp ash body has a unique style and flavor, along with a robust natural tone and resonance.
This library includes sampled single note and power chord sustains with palm mute variations. You'll also find an assortment of SFX, like pinch harmonics, mutes, pick scrapes with slow, med and long, fret noise, chokes, rakes, and slides. Dial in your dream tone by sending our pure D.I. signal through your favorite amp simulator plugins, or use our custom reamped tone, crafted with Neural DSP software. Our flexible GUI gives you access to real-time articulation selection and performance features, key-switch and mapping options, arpeggiator, auto-strummer, sequencer, and full FX rack, all packed into an intuitive and customizable user interface.
Intro Price: $79 until September 27th, 2022, at soundiron.com (Reg. $99).
