Riot Audio has releasesd BOWED GUITAR CLOUDS, which they describe as a simple but powerful Kontakt virtual instrument for cinematic morphing pad sounds. BOWED GUITAR CLOUDS, centred on recordings of bowed guitars, is the follow-up to the Bowed Glass Clouds.
BOWED GUITAR CLOUDS is built on Riot Audio’s proprietary CLOUDS engine which contains an individually adjustable three-octave spread and two main layers (A & B) with two sublayers each. It uses Kontakt’s AET Filter technology and equal power crossfading to morph between these different layers. There is a resulting total of 12 layers that can be morphed, blended and automated to create a wide variety of complex, evolving textures.
A spokesperson told us, "BOWED GUITAR CLOUDS allows the user to create rich, organic evolving pad sounds for film scores, trailers, ambient and electronic music. Its sonic palette ranges from scratchy, sitar-like drones via quivering pads to heavily saturated, growling free-bowing notes. This makes BOWED GUITAR CLOUDS suitable for a variety of moods and genres – from dreamy electro pop to sci-fi trailer music and horror film scores."
