Solved – Is Kontakt meant to be used only with the keyboard? | NI Community Forum
Yet again another library which has had an instant impact, being used from the go on 3 different advertising compositions. The ability to achieve quick results has made it another staple in my sample library. A usable, but powerful guitar plugin. This is my go-to guitar plugin as of now.
Evolution® Guitar Bundle
Thu Nov 10, 6: Vancouver Mon Oct 24, 6: I have Orange Tree’s electric guitar, now called “Evolution” and really like it. I initially got it when it was still Strawberry and was frustrated by it and just let it sit there unused for the most part. Now, it feels more playable. My main quibble is getting it to easily do convincing slides. I wish they had just made some slide samples in the vein of Ministry of Rock, which I also have. The MOR approach is different But the downside is you have to construct your solos much the same as you do with key switching string articulations on some orchestral libs.
So I still use that if I need even just one or two notes that have that real rock attitude. But for legato playing MOR sucks! OTOH, Evolution excels at combining picked and legato notes in an authentic and automatic way.
You can adjust the legato speed by choosing a note division at which they are triggered. I think I usually end up using the eighth note setting as I find there’s too much legato at the 16th note setting. It’s very controllable with key switching and their unique performance layers approach but honestly, I’ve been a bit stymied with all of that. I just want to play the sucker and have it sound good fast, which it can certainly do.
But I’m sure that given your predilections in the controller domain, you may really get into it. Myself, I just set it up so that I don’t have to do much other than play it while using the pitch and mod wheels.
I usually go in and change the vibrato setting too so it’s faster and less wide than their default. It sounds pretty good to me and probably with key-switching you could change the vibrato speed during play via their performance layers.
Another thing I really like is how you can set the pitch bend to only bend the lowest note when playing two notes at a time. Man, that goes a long way towards making sound real. And certain patches have the occasional random pinch pick sound in there which also helps. I use Evolution with guitar rig and get some pretty nice tones there. The first time I got the upgrade i wrote a quick tune that was bass, drums, organ and guitar in a Jeff Beck kind of jam and played it for a guitar playing friend.
He is a great player and owns 8 guitars. He thought it was real. In fact, everyone I play if for thinks it’s real. It’s a simpler creature than Evolution but it sounds great. Now for this lib, they DID actually sample some really big-ass slides although you have to use those as a separate instrument but I’m fine with that since those are the kind of thing you might only throw in in few spots in a song.
You can also do smaller slides with the main instrument by holding down the sustain pedal. For me, Cherry was a no brainer from the start. Logic 9.
