This is the classic palm muted electric guitar sound combined with a semi-open layer to create a very realistic rhythm guitar.
This is the sort of guitar you can hear on many hit list pop songs but also on vintage reggae tracks and in African music.
It was also widely used in pop music from the 1980s. On most of the presets you alternate between the two layers through CC-1 but you also have the option to alternate through velocity on a few presets.
The raw sound was recorded through a classic rock guitar amp with clean settings.
Also, many of the presets make use of internal amp simulators and effects within Kontakt.
Kontakt 5 presets: 22
Kontakt 6 presets: 5
GUI controllers: ADSR, LP Filter, EQ, Reverb, Delay, Chorus, Flanger,
Pseudo Stereo, Volume and Pan.
The intention with creating this instrument was to offer the classic palm muted electric guitar sound, but the final product offers much more: Riff it, play solo lines and create ambient textures with ease. Please note that the open layer is only semi-open so the notes have a shorter decay than a regular, fingerpicked electric guitar sound.
For Kontakt 5.8.1
Only users with Kontakt 6 can access the 5 Kontakt 6 presets. Please note that these presets make use of some internal effects within Kontakt 6 that cannot be controlled by the GUI.
