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 summarizes the range of human emotion.
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 32 multi-sampled guitars, each representing a single emotion from 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 2nd volume, including ‘Emotional Guitars Rhythms’ and ‘Emotional Guitars Pads.' It truly has never been this easy to score with such emotion and such accuracy. Any situation, any time.

What is Plutchik's Wheel
Psychologist Robert Plutchik theorized that there are eight primary emotions: joy, trust, fear, surprise, sadness, anticipation, anger, and disgust. 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.
We include thirty-two articulations, each one specially crafted to make the listener feel something specific. It took a lot of artistry and expertise not only to perform and record the guitar, but to drive it towards a specific feeling. Each of the multi-sampled emotions will allow you to create lead lines with special colors with a specific emotional response.
Variety is key to the taste! Thanks to our unique and flexible engine, a combination of any of the emotions is possible to create that perfect tone you’re looking for. Combine Love with Sadness and get a new taste, or maybe Terror and Serenity could be what you’re looking for. Any set of emotions can be stacked and manipulated in infinite ways!
