Emotional Guitars: Rhythms overview

A couple of years ago, we wondered how we could make a library that could encapsulate the most important human emotions, those that drive us to act the way we do, what makes us human. After some research, we discovered the Plutchik Wheel, which would summarize human emotions in a wheel, relating them by proximity and similarities.

We decided we could use this information to create a library that could help you create pieces aimed to make listeners feel such emotions, however, we wanted to offer more… so we decided to have these emotions in MultiSample form, in Pads and in Rhythmic loops, that way, you would be able to choose exactly HOW to drive your listeners towards an emotional level.

After narrowing down the project, we decided to make this library only with guitars, to try and make the musician recording these emotions CREATE them with his hands, craft every single note with his art and not merely sound design. This is how Emotional Guitars was born – from the hands and inspiration of one musician (with a lot of guitars), to your fingertips. We loved working on this project, and we are sure it will become an army knife of reaching quick results for you.

With thousands of emotional rhythms organized into 32 different articulations (Emotions) that closely follow the Plutchik’s Wheel, it has never been easier to score scenes with this much of an emotional impact. Whether you need just a simple underscore or a more complex score that weaves in and out between dozens of different emotional textures, Emotional Guitars has you covered.

Emotional Guitars: Multi-Samples is the 3rd volume, including ‘Emotional Guitars Multi-Sampled’ and ‘Emotional Guitars Pads‘ which feature both multi-sampled guitars, and custom pads all designed with a single guitar. It truly has never been this easy to score with such emotion and such accuracy. Any situation, any time.

What is the Plutchik's Wheel?

Psychologist Robert Plutchik theorized that there are eight primary emotions joy, trust, fear, surprise, sadness, anticipation, anger, and disgust. The Plutchik’s wheel illustrates eight primary emotions and 24 complimentary emotions. This tool not only demonstrates the emotions that relate to one another but also show you the emotions that are polar opposites. This is invaluable information for composers. Using this tool helps bring clarity to emotions, which can sometimes feel mysterious and overwhelming.

The Rhythmic way

For those of you composers of pulsing and rhythmic pieces, we have created rhythmic loops that will add that special touch to your pieces. Every rhythm was created from the very scratch using an arsenal of guitars, every rhythm will synchronize with your song’s tempo and every rhythm will highlight the beauty of human emotions.

Unique Customization Possibilities

With our well-known CHAOS FX module, along with the 100% customizable XY Pads, you can suit yourself and make any sound you want with this beautiful library. The possibilities of colorizing the provided sounds are limitless, feel free to dive in and create your own sounds using our interpretations of emotions as a base – make your own concepts of what joy, serenity, and admiration can mean, extend the reach of the library and make the emotions yours!

Infinite Combinations

Variety is key to the taste! Thanks to our unique and flexible engine, a combination of any of the emotions is possible so as to reach that perfect tone you’re looking for – combine Love with Sadness and get a new taste, maybe Terror and Serenity could be what you’re looking for. Any set of emotions can be stacked and later manipulated in infinite ways so as to achieve the color you’re looking for.

Core Emotions.

There is an extensive range of emotions that we, as humans, can feel, and as Composer/Sound Designers, it is our job to be able to sonically capture these emotions accurately. We have closely followed the Plutchik’s Wheel to not only capture the core eight emotions (Ecstasy, Admiration, Terror, Amazement, Grief, Loathing, Rage, and Vigilance), but all 32 subcategories of emotions, so whatever your composing needs are, you can be certain Emotional guitars has the perfect sound for you.

Everything at your hand

We have organized Emotional Guitars so that you have everything in front of you. No scroll bars to go through each of the emotions, but everything is arranged alphabetically in two patches, allowing you to change between emotions quickly. One patch assorted from A-F and another from G-Z. Quickly access any emotion and control its unique identity with the range of front-facing effects, including attack, release, speed, pitch envelope, glide, and offset.
