ON THE FLY MOD WHEEL
Move your sounds...
You can select forward or reversed versions of any sound at will by using the Mod Wheel. Simply change the position of the Mod Wheel before playing a note to change direction. Combine this with the Playback Offset control to create on-the-fly loops and textural movment.
WHEN THE SAMPLE STARTS
Many of the sounds in this library are long. You can change the starting point of each sound by tweaking the Playback Offset control. This is especially useful for tailoring reverse hits to your music.
The “Random” switch adds small pitch and timing variations to add subtle difference each time you hit the same key. Dynamic filters also make quieter notes warmer.
Dark Guitar is the second of a series of libraries has been designed to provide an expansive range of dark and suspenseful textures whilst providing controls to allow the composer to easily invent unique sounds.
This virtual instrument features 6 instruments each completely different. Some are melodic in nature while others a purely textural.
LFO VOLUME MODULATION
Each instrument has a multi-LFO based volume modulator so you can add everything from subtle vibrato to full-on volume gating.
Shape the tone of each sound each sound with two 4 - Pole Adaptive Resonant filters - one High Pass, one Low Pass.
Glide your sounds in or turn long ones into short ones with the full ADSR volume shaping envelope controls.
Expand the sonic vocabulary of RSSD02 Dark Guitar with the pitch changing functions. Up to +/- 1 Octave with fine control of +/- 50 cents.
To play the detail between notes or not....
We sampled all the intervallic leaps up to an octave throughout the instruments range, both upwards and downwards. When you play two notes using Adaptive Legato it instantly analyses the interval you play and applies the appropriate transtional sample between the notes. The result is a smooth and realistic legato performance.
Not limited to specific strumming patterns or rhythms - you play in what you like. When One of the Chord Switches is engaged two sections of the keyboard open up - one for down strums one for up strums.
You can choose from Bar chords, Open Chords and Power Chords
"Free Chord Play" - Simply use the top end of the keyboard to select the type of chord you want then play in the roots notes as you like. This is one of the simplest, most flexible and naturally intiutive ways of playing chords on the market. If you can tap out simple rhythms with your left and right hands then you can easily play chords on our guitars.
We also have a secion of the keyboard for what we call "Dead Strums". These are muted percussive strums. These can be used to punctuate your rhythmic chord playing to funk up your vamps.
"Speed and Emphasis" Easily control strum speed and note emphasis (bringing out high or low notes of each chord) with simple dial controls.

ADAPTIVE LEGATO vs HYBRID LEGATO
Adaptive ? Our system will change the length and volume of the transition samples depending on how quickly you play notes - slow transitions for slow passages, quick for quick!
Your input in all this ? You can control overall transition speed, how much of the "front" part of the next note is taken (how smooth do you want your legato) and overall loudness of the transition intervals.
Our Adaptive True Legato System is Monophonic.
Switch this on for rapid note picking. You adjust the speed - the instrument will randomly allocate a note from the appropriate articulations group to give a human fast picked sound.
There is a dedicated section for controlling multi-LFO based vibrato. This can be continuously adjusted in real-time for natural vibrato. RSSD02 Dark Guitar also responds to pitch wheel movments which can be used for string bends and vibrato.
