7 Acoustic Guitars / 6-samples / Pure Magic

I love guitars – I’ve always wished I could play guitar but never did. I get jealous of the amazing dynamic range and tonal changes a guitar player can invoke just by playing with a little more fingernail or a stronger strum. So, with this wonderful addition of being able to load our own samples into Omnisphere, a simple but well recorded set of 6 samples for each string on a guitar seemed like a fun project to attempt – and it came out AMAZINGLY NICELY!

This library consists of 7 guitars in 4 different “treatments”. I am presenting these only as Multis – there are some awesome bonus patches included but the HEART and SOUL of this library is focused on these 6 patch Multis. (MegaMagic: Guitars Part 2 will be all about single samples from these guitars that make really awesome andmagical "guitar-like" patches.)

About the Recording Session

The amazing guitar player and my close friend is Erick Hailstone. He brought many wonderful instruments to a studio in North Portland owned and operated by Drew Canulette. We recorded into a Nuendo system running at 24bit 48Khz mostly thru an AKG-414 microphone.

Editing Details

After the recording session, I spent time selecting the best performances, constructing the DRY guitar maps in Logic Pro and finalizing the sample files - this involved tuning and noise reduction inside of iZotope's RX5 application.

Once I had the DRY maps sounding pretty much like they do today, it was time to run them thru my MegaMagic effect chain. In doing this, I also decided to make not ONE but TWO different effect chains. Each of these treatments had a different goal:

  1. DRY version which is……dry. I put a little reverb on them because totally dry sounds totally fake. The Mod wheel can be increased to add even more reverb to the sounds.
  2. Intimate - This is a variation on the MM1 Multis but the filtering is lowered, the filter EG takes out the brightness of the reverb so it’s just a huge warm blanket of lushness in the sound. WARNING!! Play this and whoever is in the room will fall in love with you.
  3. MM1 (MegaMagic Processing Chain #1). This is a lush warm chain of 3 different reverbs fed into a subtle multiprocessor effect for a beautiful lush sound. Using 3 different reverbs allows the reverb to interact and in a way, become better than just 1 by itself. Truly magical! MM1 Effects used to make the Magical Reverb (yes, those are the settings, too!)
  4. MM2 (MegaMagic Processing Chain #2). This is a slightly brighter, a little more distant processed sound that has automated Octave shimmering in the reverb. I actually automated the intensity of the shimmer element so it becomes a fading in/out organic element in the sound. Again, it qualified as truly magical because I kept getting goosepimples when playing the guitars with this processing.

The end results are 27 wonderful Multis that use 6 Samples in 6 discreete patches inside of Omnisphere to make one magical guitar sound. Please watch the patch walkthru video, listen to the demos and without a doubt you will be wanting to add these guitars to your musical toolbox!
