Hans Zimmer Guitars - Volume 1 from Spectrasonics and distributed by Ilio is a library of guitar samples from the private sample library of Oscar and Grammy award winning composer Hans Zimmer. The guitar textures are detailed and expressive with patches containing up to twelve-way velocity switching, allowing for such nuances as dynamically-controllable string slides, pops and harmonics.
The guitars represented in this collection range from a wide variety of pristine acoustics, vintage Telecasters, to a rare Paul Reed Smith collector's edition "Dragon" guitar. Three acoustic guitars are sampled without vibrato, in multiple dynamics and include a beautiful nylon string, six-string Folk steel string and the unique Parker "Fly" Electro-Acoustic guitar.
The library also includes guitar grooves presented in every key signature and with multiple tempos. Also featured are major and minor acoustic guitar strum samples. These articulations are available in steel and nylon string versions, with both up and down strokes.
This library has been compiled to work with Roland hardware samplers.
