Musesamples is developping the new flagship, the "Evocación", a new classical guitar library (actually the Authentic Guitar 4) completely from the ground up. All patches have been created chromatically, important patches contain up to 5 velocities, and most of them have a (Random) Round Robin (3 layers). It will be offered as Kontakt Instrument.
With an abundance of classical guitar techniques it will be possible to translate your musical imagination into a music track in whatever musical style suited for the nylon stringed guitar: classical, jazzy, bossa nova, flamenco, singer songwriting and let's not forget the wide range of needs for scoring. "Evocación" offers many tone coloring possibilties to make your mock-up more believable. Let's not forget to mention the special Performance patch for easy lively output of your tracks while composing.
In this Kontakt version you are able to see which articulation and specific patch are active on the main page! As you can see there is a switch for playing one voice vs. more voices, plus a RR-knob that can be switched on or off. But don't worry: all patches have presets built in for convenient composing.
Expected release: we strive for End of May 2022. Use the Keep me posted form herebelow to stay informed.
We invite you to enjoy the soundtracks in the meantime.
Tone colors & articulations
"Evocación" offers many patches: tone colors are a substantial part of a classical guitar in real life and consequently with this virtual version.
The most important ones are constructed in three different positions on the neck of the guitar. Playing with or without the use of nails, with or without vibrato, espressivo, strumming, vertical vibrato, slides, rasgueado, pizzicato and even more, it is all at your disposal
Liveliness of your tracks
Thanks to the high amount of velocity layers combined with Round Robin scripting you will always enjoy the result of your mock-up.
With the possibilties of Sound Manipulation (see the Sound tab) you have some nice tools under the hood of Evocaión to make it even more lively.
A few basic 'guitar artifacts' like squeaks and right hand damping sound have been implemented in "Evocación.
Customized chord construction
No instant gratification with pre-recorded chords and chord patterns.
"Evocación" offers the 1 string strum patch. With this patch you are capable of making any possible chord on your guitar. Tempo of the attack, timing and fine tuning for up and down strokes is at your disposal this way.
It is very easy to give also the upstroke a different sound, also the number of strings to be hit is just at your own choice.
Short note durations
Translating your artistic goals into a virtual version should be free of any hassle when it comes down to the 'shorts' that often are not fully of the desired length.
The precise duration of notes is 100% your individual choice here: no pre-cooked shorts in "Evocación".
Espressive note connection & slurs
In "Evocación" it is possible to connect two notes in an expressive manner at your choice. With two available ways of connecting you can make a line from a start note to whatever other note in whatever patch: espressivo, harmonics and so on.
You can even implement guitar slurs playing in your tracks!
