IMPROMPTU ELECTRIC GUITARS
Zero-G Impromptu Electric Guitars is an incredible-sounding cinematic Kontakt 6 instrument dedicated to the creation of complex guitar-based, ever-evolving soundscapes. It features 21 patches and over 8GB of samples plus a host of features including the 'Impromptu Engine' to help you instantly generate guitar-based sounds that flow with unique organic movement.
Three exceptional guitars (including an electric Baritone) were sampled in great detail at 48kHz/24bit, using condenser and ribbon microphones and processed through a large number of guitar pedals.
The centrepiece of IEG is the Impromptu Engine; a system that utilises loops of improvised, un-synced snippets combined with a granular synthesizer.
Zero-G recorded improvised performances in three different intensity layers that you are able to crossfade between using the central knob which is mapped to the mod-wheel by default.
Playing a note with the mod-wheel completely down will trigger a sparse improvised loop on that pitch; start moving the mod-wheel up to gradually crossfade to the medium and finally, to the dense layer.
Other than the intensity, the layers were also sampled playing the instrument in different ways: the sparse layer was recorded playing the guitar with fingers, the medium layer was recorded using a soft, smooth, wooden pick while the dense layer was recorded using a thick, hard plastic pick.
