The Ambient Guitar is a massive collection of carefully crafted sounds all derived from several different guitars. The source material is comprised of live guitar with various effects applied in real-time, with minimal post-production processing, and includes drones, phrases, and multi-samples.
Contrary to most guitar libraries, the focus of The Ambient Guitar is the unrecognizable, ambient side of the instrument. Beyond the strums, palm-mutes, plucks, picks, squeals, pinch-harmonics, and lightning fast, finger-bleeding leads typically played on guitars, there lies a dreamy, synth-y, rarely heard realm of droning beauty. Of course, there is plenty of range within this realm. You’ll find sounds from awe-inspiring beauty to fist-clenching rage, from the eerie unknown to somber loneliness, and from pulse-pounding horror to gentle, soothing harmony. Along with the realm of pure ambience, there is a select group of bonus, post-apocalyptic-inspired, minimalist phrases. These phrases are still very ambient in nature and are meant to work perfectly on top of the purely ambient patches.
But what’s that you say? You want to be able to play your own melodies? Hey, this is an ambient library! But then again, we couldn’t help ourselves and decided to multi-sample the bass and guitar, giving you a massive range of standard plucked notes to play any melody you wish. Divided into five major emotional categories (Awe, Horror, Mystery, Rage, Sadness) and with the phrases and multi-samples, this library is unlike any guitar library you’ve heard before

New Front-Faced FX and Chaos FX 3.4
The Ambient Guitar contains two parallel FX systems. The first is our new Front-Faced FX, which allows you to control the most fundamental effects from the front panel (ex. Step Based Filtering, Pitch, Delay, and our new Textural Delay). You can also go deeper with our Chaos FX system, which includes Phase Modulation, EQ, Bit-Crusher, Distortion, Dual Delays, and more!
Textural Convolution Delay
Textural Convolution Delay 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. In addition to the normal delay of the instrument, you also get the delay and texture of the convolution.
The Ambient Guitar comes with a built-in browser environment, so you do not need to load separate files for everything you want to try. With the A/B system, you fade between two different sounds in real-time.
