Pedal Steel Guitar From Your Keyboard

Soundworks releases Pedal Steel sample library for Kontakt Player      26/06/19

Impact Soundworks has released Pedal Steel, a sample library for KONTAKT PLAYER which they describe as featuring a legendary American electric guitar of the same name. They say that the instrument offers composers and producers access to this distinctive sliding guitar sound without complex automation or multi-tracking needed, even for harmonized parts. Pedal Steel is fully NKS compatible for use with Maschine and Komplete Kontrol hardware. Here's the full story direct from Impact Soundworks...

As pedal steel guitars require significant technique using both arms and legs to perform, library developer Dimitris Plagiannis chose to focus on easy playability in creating the Pedal Steel virtual instrument. Core articulations such as glides and vibrato can be performed automatically as the instrument analyzes the user’s performance in real-time.

The innovative Harmonized Mono feature allows allows musicians to effortlessly add harmonies to a melody part by pressing just a single key. These harmonies intelligently follow the melody in every way without requiring separate MIDI to be sequenced or performed. Multiple harmonies can be triggered just as easily.

Pedal Steel includes a large pool of highly-detailed samples across three channels - DI and two amps - allowing the user to experiment with different tones. The built-in Console modular FX rack and mixer further provides a huge variety of FX (reverbs, cabinets, pedals, amps, EQs) which can be added and used in any order, on any channel.

Pricing and Availability:
Pedal Steel is available now as a digital download for the introductory price of $149 through July 7, 2019 (MSRP: $199).
