Impromptu Electric Guitars – Evolving Cinematic Guitars

Zero-G Impromptu Electric Guitars is a cinematic Kontakt 6 instrument featuring 21 patches and over 8GB of samples. IEG is dedicated to the creation of complex guitar-based, ever-evolving soundscapes.

Three exceptional guitars (including an electric Baritone) were sampled in great detail at 48kHz/24bit, using condenser and ribbon microphones, and processed through a large number of guitar pedals.

The centerpiece of Impromptu Electric Guitars is the Impromptu Engine; a system that utilizes loops of improvised, un-synced snippets combined with a granular synthesizer.

Zero-G recorded improvised performances in three different intensity layers that you are able to crossfade between using the central knob which is mapped to the mod-wheel by default.

Playing a note with the mod-wheel completely down will trigger a sparse improvised loop on that pitch; start moving the mod-
wheel up to gradually crossfade to the medium and finally, to the dense layer.

Other than the intensity, the layers were also sampled playing the instrument in different ways: the sparse layer was recorded playing the guitar with fingers, the medium layer was recorded using a soft, smooth, wooden pick while the dense layer was recorded using a thick, hard plastic pick.

Please note: You need the full version of Kontakt 6.5.2 in order to run IEG. It will only work in the Kontakt Player in demo mode.
