hi guys, i'm really looking for a library with a lot of guitars....with many articulations and good quality...i saw chris hein has a new library coming out soon (right?!) ...can u help me? i think hans zimmer guitars is too old now......bye
I´m not so sure myself which library is best. Hans Zimmers library is old and there are no updated versions to make use of Kontakt´s abilities but some sounds are still quite good.
The Bela Media group buy is very interesting but the guitars are not clean (as far as I know) which would be prefereable to make use use of an amp simulation.
The LPC guitars from Prominy seem to be nice but they are very expensive. I just bought the new guitar library from Pettinhouse which is quite good but doesn´t have too many articulations.
Currently the Chris Hein guitars seem to be the most interesting ones (at least when looking at the demos) as they make use of Kontakt´s scripting and seem to be very playable (but they are not out yet). I´ll definitely be interested In the Real Guitar Electrical Edition as I love musiclab´s concept and interface. Makes guitars extremely playable for keyboarders.
Just my opinion though
Any other comments on guitar lib. from a keyboard-playability point of view ?
I've been using Virtual Guitarist for rythm guitars for a while, but I'm still looking for a decent library for guitar solo mock-up.
I'm a bit afraid of huge libraries full of articulations, because I don't like to spend hours in programming tracks. So any users feed-back from a playability point welcome !
Frome the point of playability "Real Guitar" is hard to beat for acoustic guitars (especially when strumming) though some libraries may have more convincing samples. I personally think that playability has even more impact now that most libraries have an outstanding quality of samples. That´s why RG is my favourite in this regard.
By looking at the videos the new Chris Hein library seems to focus on playability as well using K2´s scripting abilities but I don´t know anyone who has tested the library (it´s not out yet). As far as I can see, all other libraries focus more on quality and number of samples and articulations without any emphasize on a user friendly interface. Correct me if I´m wrong
