Sample Logic has introduced Cinematic Guitars 2, a suite of over 1,200 instruments and multis. It hosts a collection of unprecedented interface controls providing over 40 sections of onscreen effects and parameters.
The main foundation of the interface is built upon Sample Logic’s “multi-core effect sequencer” first introduced in the original Cinematic Guitars. Now, in CG2, this interface has been brought to a new level with the ability to control effects by assigning tempo-synced step sequencers and LFO’s to any instrument parameter and the option to sequence the bypass feature of each effect in realtime.
In addition, all loop-based instruments can be controlled, effected, and manipulated at the transient slice level directly from the waveform view. CG2 also employs the new 4-band SSL EQ with multi-core sequencer functionality.
Cinematic Guitars 2 requires Kontakt 5 Player (version 5.0.3 or higher) or the retail version of Kontakt 5.0.3 or higher. It costs US$399.99 and can be pre-ordered at www.samplelogic.com/products/cinematicguitars2 .
