audiowiesel Hammered Acoustic Guitar Full Bundle v1.5 KONTAKT
Hammered Acoustic Guitar (HAG) is the result of „playing“ an Ibanez AE acoustic guitar with drum sticks and brushes. In order to make it punchy and powerful we used two steel strings and tuned them to same pitch. This way we could maintain a slight modulation of the sound, a beat frequency.
But we did not stop after recording single notes. In fact, we have expanded the concept and did additional recording sessions dedicated to percussion and effect sounds. Especially the FX content is heavily processed and offers great material for musical sound design. Check out the special features of each package in the tab menu below. Also, you shouldn’t miss to take a closer look at the patch list.
Simply said, you get everything what is included in ‚Core‘ and ‚FX & Percussion‘ and even more. We have created some special patches which make use of both sample contents.
- includes ‚HAG Core‘ & ‚HAG FX & Percussion‘
- bonus patches (bundle multis)
- 2.305 samples
- 2.5 GB Kontakt .ncw format
- 44.1kHz / 24bit / stereo
Many ways to get creative with HAG
- make rhythmic sections (the in-built presets are a great and easy way to start creating your own sound according to ‚your‘ taste)
- play HAG as a solo instrument, choose between the modern (perfectly tuned) and the ‚organic‘ sample set
- use the FX & Percussion section to spice up or even create tracks entirely with it
- use sounds from HAG FX & Percussion for musical sound design:
features like the morphing slider (morphs between clean and distorted percussion), reverb on the modwheel (sampled) or tempo-synced stutter FXs give you the flexibility to sculpture the sound to fit your track.The organic feel of both, the natural and processed content freshens up sterile sounding compositions.
About the v1.5 update
Based on the feedback of HAG users and driven by new ideas and creativity we felt that it was about time to make some improvements to HAG:
– HAG Core was completely re-built from scratch, including new mapping, new features and a complete new script
– drastically reduced RAM footprint in Kontakt by no increasing of CPU usage (Core)
– complete rework of all GUI elements
– ensemble function with up to 4 guitars at the same time, including dedicated mixer section with 4 channel strips
– in-built preset section with 4 additional user preset slots (Core)
all versions of HAG require the full retail version of NI Kontakt v5.1 or higher
