Audioweisel have been on the sampled instrument scene since 2012, and their Hammered Acoustic Guitar had garnered a slew of positive feedback from the media composer community upon its initial release. They’re back with a major 1.5 update, and Meena Shamaly takes a look at what they have to offer.
H.A.G. comes with a Core library, an FX & Percussion library, and a bundle that combines both. This is the concept as described by the developers:
“Hammered Acoustic Guitar (HAG) is the result of “playing” an Ibanez AE acoustic guitar with drum sticks and brushes. In order to make it punchy and powerful we used two steel strings and tuned them to same pitch. This way we could maintain a slight modulation of the sound, a beat frequency.
But we did not stop after recording single notes. In fact, we have expanded the concept and did additional recording sessions dedicated to percussion and effect sounds. Especially the FX content is heavily processed and offers great material for musical sound design.”
Hammered Acoustic Guitar can be purchased from www.audio-wiesel.com/hammered-acoustic-guitar-3, and is available for:
- 79 Euro/99 USD for the bundle
- 45 Euro/59 USD for the Core library
- 45 Euro/59 USD for the FX & Percussion library
