Bela D Media has released a new Kontakt sample library – Lyrical Distortion, a Custom 22 PRS electric guitar, recorded through a Mesa Boogie amplifier and programmed in Kontakt 1.5.3 to be easily played from any MIDI controller or sequencer. For Lyrical Distortion they sampled four variations of every note for every articulation, utilizing random cycling for authentic swift repetitive lines.
In addition, every patch features multiple release triggers (again utilizing random cycling) for an air of realism. The patches include single note picking, single note hammer-ons, performed power-chords (I and V) and more. Also, all patches are available as performed palm-mutes as well as non-muted. The range of possibilities with Lyrical Distortion is like that of no other sampled guitar library currently available.
One key feature of Lyrical Distortion is that they have recorded two identical, but yet independent sets of samples (Guitar 1 and Guitar 2). The user can track right and left guitars, double track a guitar lead and so on.
