In Session Audio Guitar Swell KONTAKT Update ONLYTHE AMBIENT GUITAR SOUND YOU KNOW & LOVE
Guitar Swell is a virtual instrument sample library designed to easily create soundtrack-worthy ambient guitar performances with an emotional quality.
Freely play melodies, parts and chords. Or, strum custom and auto-generated chords from single keys to build simple-to-play “no wrong note” progressions.
Make evocative and haunting transitions by pitch bending strings – independently and/or simultaneously – to create chord changes that morph together, uninterrupted.
Elevate the sound with a wide variety of patches, all of which layer the guitar with other natural instruments, analog synths or additional guitars.
Further the atmospherics by swelling the guitar’s signal through the virtual volume pedal and into an amp, reverb, delay and slew of other effects.
With its ten guitars, one-of-a-kind interface and feature set, Guitar Swell drives to expand what’s possible with an ambient guitar sound.
Why is it called GUITAR SWELL?
SWELL refers to a technique in which a guitarist uses a pedal (or knob) to bring the volume up after striking the strings.
Doing this, combined with delay and reverb effects can create a “pad” sound.
ABOUT THE UPDATE – MARCH 2022
– This update fixes a user interface issue where instrument menu arrows would not work. Clicking a menu arrow would display the entire menu instead of loading the next or previous instrument.
– This issue arose due to a change Native Instruments made with how graphics are handled in versions of Kontakt 6.3 and higher.
– It also fixes the “Auto Pick” Random “Order” setting. Previously, selecting “Random” produced no effect.
