Sub51 releases “EBow Elements” for NI Kontakt and Komplete Kontrol


Sub51 has released EBow Elements for NI Kontakt and Komplete Kontrol.

The eBow is a handheld 'electronic bow' used to create long sustained notes on the guitar. It works by amplifying the signal from the string and then feeding back the energy via a drive coil. It is a monophonic device as it only activates one string at a time and notes tend to build up with a ramped attack rather than sounding percussive as with a picked guitar. With electric guitars, the tonality changes as the eBow is moved between the pickups as it interacts with their magnetic fields making for a very complex (and sometimes unpredictable) timbre.

EBow Elements is formatted for Kontakt 5.8.1 and all the samples in this instrument were created by using an EBow to achieve as consistent tonality as possible, which allows for the creation of chordal pads (something an eBow performance can't do in real life without overdubs) as well as solo lead lines.

EBow Elements is structured into 3 separate categories Clean, Effects Rack and FX instruments and where possible, each folder contains a tempo-synced one-shot and looped version of each instrument.

To enhance user experience, amp simulation, envelope attack and envelope release have been included with each EBow instrument, which can be either on or off. Instruments included in the "Effects_Rack" category give the option to select from a choice of 11 different cabinet types.

For users of NI's Komplete Kontrol there is also the option to load and control EBow Elements via the clearly defined pre-mapped files which also include instrument tagging information... For blind or partially sighted users, Accessibility Mode will enhance navigation of EBow Elements.

The full version of NI's Kontakt 5.8.1 (not Kontakt player) required:

  • 21 Kontakt Instruments.
  • 173 WAV Files.
  • 21 Komplete Kontrol Files.
  • Total File Size 1.32GB.

Price: £13.50 at www.sub51.co.uk/products
