The Instrument

On string instruments, players can cause a string to vibrate only in sections by touching it lightly at the appropriate point. This can produce a pure and clear note of a cool, silvery quality. It is called ‘flageolet notes’ or ‘harmonics’.

The ../content

’Guitar Harmonics Essential’ consists - in contrast to its big brother Guitar Harmonics - of just the electric guitar harmonics. We spent a lot of time finding the perfect setup to achieve a warm and realistic sound. In the end we decided to record the guitars tuned in open E with 3 Round Robin variation and particulary several velocity layers – sufficient for our purposes. Besides, the instrument provides a lot of useful scripting tools such as note length control (decay and attack), a tone slider, amp simulation, rotary and delay and reverb amount.
Summing up these tools enable the Guitar Harmonics Essential to produce a wide spread of sounds such as organic reverse guitars, fragile string notes or warm e-piano tones.
