BOWED GUITAR CLOUDS is a cinematic morphing pad instrument running in Kontakt 5.8 and above. It is based on recordings of bowed hollowbody electric guitar, bowed semi-acoustic bass, bowed acoustic guitar and bowed steel-string ukulele (Braguinha).
BOWED GUITAR CLOUDS makes use of Kontakt's AET Filter technology to seamlessly morph between layers of sound, both tonal and non-tonal. The instrument has a simple GUI allowing for controls for the morphing within each layer (A and B) as well as adjustment of balance between these layers. Other controls include distortion, BP filter, delay and reverb as well as three-band parametric EQ.
BOWED GUITAR CLOUDS is a one-page Kontakt instrument designed for ease of use and immediate results.
Much of the appeal of our CLOUDS engine derives from how it generates movement between different sample sources and groups. It contains two layers, A and B, each of which in turn contains a base sublayer and a target sublayer, i.e. four layers in total.
