Sample Logic ( has introduced Cinematic Guitars 2, a suite of over 1,200 instruments and multis. It hosts a collection of 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 is divided into three main categories: Atmospheres, Instrumentals and Percussives. Each contains a variety of unique sounds.

CG2 requires Kontakt 5 Player 5.0.3 or higher and, on the Mac platform, Mac OS X 10.6 or later. It has a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of US$399.99.
