Sonuscore, the developer of high-quality virtual instruments like “The Orchestra”, “Action Strings”, “Action Strikes” and more, released the sixth entry in their Origins series: Muted Guitar & Harmonics.

For this very special Origins, Sonuscore collaborated with the famous composer Mats Lundgren (Just Cause 2, Mad Max [Videogame], Generation Zero) from Pole Position Production. Mats recorded the guitars and processed them with his extraordinary precision.

The instruments

Electric Guitar Muted

2006 Fender Stratocaster American Deluxe Stratocaster with Samarium Cobalt pickups
The muted guitar provides a very calm, but rich sound. It gives an incredible warm intonation overall when used as the base of a harmonic structure. With the Multi-Arpeggio-Designer [MAD] you can give the instrument a characteristic, modern, sometimes futuristic feel. Paired with the Harmonics, you achieve a very balanced and wide sound, right on the modern pulse of time.

Electric Guitar Harmonics

2003 Gibson SG with Seymour Duncan Phat Cat Pickups
With its shimmering, floating sound, the Harmonics are a great addition to the Palm Mutes. Create lively ambient pads or run impressive modern-sounding arpeggios with it: The possibilities are endless and usually just one preset away.

Amp: Handwired Marshall 1974X 18w class A

Muted Guitar & Harmonics is available for the full version of Native Instruments Kontakt v5.8.1 or higher. It comes at a discount price of €49 EUR until May 23rd. The regular price is €69 EUR.
