"Out of the Box" Power Chords
I put together this simple power chord library with my favourite settings as I got fed up with having to plug my guitar in every time I needed a single chord. I thought I would make it available to everyone for cheap!
You get an octave of distorted power chords, played by four guitars, two left and two right.
Play below velocity 64 and you will hear only guitars. Play above velocity 65 and you will get bass as well. Further up the keyboard you have separate guitars split left and right. You also get a reversal patch as that is a very common thing to do with guitar chords.
You can adjust the attack, release and reverb settings. I find the tone sits well under most things including orchestra and can be pretty punchy when it needs to be. This is not a library for composing long strings of guitar lines. It is simply for the composer that is in a hurry and needs a well produced, pre-mixed guitar sound that is ready to go.
You will need a full version of Kontakt 5 to make full use of the library.
That said, the sample folder is unlocked so you can use the audio files in your own sampler, or drag and drop into your DAW if you wish. Enjoy!
If you're unsure whether this is right for you, here's a short example of what's included in XCHORD
