Native Instruments Releases SESSION GUITARIST — PICKED NYLON in Collaboration with Drumasonic
Native Instruments today released SESSION GUITARIST — PICKED NYLON, the latest addition to their range of KONTAKT-based instruments, created in collaboration with Drumasonic.
PICKED NYLON perfectly complements the other acoustic releases in the SESSION GUITARIST collection. The instrument delivers the unmistakably pure, warm sound of a nylon-stringed guitar, allowing producers and media composers to create a completely authentic tone for traditional genres like flamenco, bossa nova, jazz, and classical.
The sounds of PICKED NYLON were recorded in a carefully controlled studio environment, from a one-of-a-kind instrument built by master guitar-maker Lisa Weinzierl. Now the rich textures and timbres of this truly exceptional guitar are painstakingly captured and made accessible to all in a single KONTAKT instrument. The guitar was carefully tested amongst a range of contenders, and selected due to its superior level of balance and versatility.
