Blendstrument Paranormal Guitars overview

Welcome to a new installment of our Blendstrument Series: Paranormal Guitars.

Blendstrument Paranormal Guitars is a distinctive Cinematic Pulse Design Tool, designed to create those unique blockbuster pulses we all need, but with a twist. The library contains our highly advanced randomization feature – allowing you to create an infinite amount of combinations and can never produce the same instrument twice. The library was created by Academy Award, TEC and G.A.N.G Award Winning Composer, Troels Folmann and a team of the best sound designers in the industry.

Blendstrument Paranormal Guitars contains in itself samples from 11-stringed instruments; a Martin, a 12- String Guitar, a Dobro, a Mandolin, a Ukulele, a Schecter, a Telecaster, a Les Paul, a Stratocaster, a Bass and a Silent guitar. Each instrument contains several amounts of loops that can be combined with an infinite amount of different textures. It is built around the creative world which only the Blendstrument´s algorithms can do it. We also added our newest Chaos FX 3.3 and a brand new Panorama architecture that allows individual tuning and panning of each sample layer.

Blendstrument Paranormal Guitar is an eternal box of sonic chocolate. You never know what you are gonna get. But we pledge whatever you create will eternally be yours and yours only. The Pods have been distributed so that Pod 1 contains all the acoustic instruments and Pod 2 the electric ones, that way you will be able to create unique blends from both worlds. The library is literally capable of producing an eternal amount of new cinematic pulses and create something unique every time you use it. It only takes one click to create another world.

Total Randomization & FX

It only takes one click to create another world. The BLENDSTRUMENT is designed around the ability to randomize everything and create completely new sounds and instrument that no mortal soul has ever heard. This includes the ability to RANDOMIZE everything, including samples, sample parameters, global effects, anything that could possible be randomized. All it takes is a single click and you have created an entire, never heard before, universe of sounds. Click!

Pulse Architecture

The BLENDSTRUMENT is designed to be a rhythmic, pulsing instrument that adapts to your DAW Host-Tempo. We designed in such a way that you can PULSE between two different pods, which each contains a fully loaded Blendstrument. The PULSE architecture allows you control all crucial elements in the pulsing, including MIX, PAN and SPEED of the PULSE. If that is not enough – try combining it with our advanced GATE function too.

Textural Convolutions

Textural Convolutions is a new way of using convolution to create textural delays. The idea is to use non-conventional convolution impulses to augment the existing sound. So when the instrument delays – you will not just get a normal delay of the instrument, but also get the delay and texture of the convolution. This concept is called Textural Convolutions and we hand-crafted over 300 new impulses for the Blendstrument. The Textural Convolutions can also be randomized.

Reversed Blendstrument

We also created the entire Blendstrument in REVERSE. Every single sample now plays backwards – creating an entirely new take on the Blendstrument. This is great for creating more underscore type of beds and works fantastic with regular Blendstrument too. A great trick is to load two instances of Blendstrument. One regular and one reversed. Assign them to same midi-channel and active one POD in each. You now have both forward and reversed at the same time.

Chaos Effects 3.3

The Blendstrument contains a massive global FX section and RANDOMIZATION system, but we also added our latest 3.3 FX Chaos Engine on top. This feature is recommended for power-users that want to shape their Blendstrumentation even further, including Filter, Step-Based Filter, EQ, Bit-Crusher, Distortion, Dual Stereo-Delay and two additional convolution systems on top of our custom Textural Convolutions. The library also offers a large selection of Front-Face Effects, including Phaser, Gate, Delayed, Textural Convolutions (Form) and ability to randomize them all with one click.


One of the most unique features of the Blendstrument is the fact that each sample comes in 5 completely different variations. You can control each of these variations independently, so essentially have 5 variations of the same sample behave, pan and pitch completely on their own. We call this feature PANORAMA. The PANORAMA creates highly advanced poly-rhythmic and poly-panoramic (new word!) feel to the Blendstrument. All just one click away.
