Project 16 Sherwood Guitar

Some time ago I was fortunate enough to work with Project 16's great bass samples on a Kontakt instrument. He mentioned to me that he had sampled his Sherwood guitar, but I was taking a break at the time with some shoulder problems so I never worked with these samples. I've also wanted to do more guitars with the script and shell that Mickaël Ménager has allowed me to use. His scripting of great effects works really well with electric band instruments like guitar, bass and electric piano.

So I decided to see what I remembered about making instruments and here is the result. The guitar is fully sampled (though I stretched the notes on the ends) and has 5 velocity layers. I made a few errors that I hope I've ironed out. It's been a while since I've worked with this many samples and this rather complex (for me) shell. If you find any problems please yell and I'll try to get them fixed.

  1. I need a guitar so bad I am a recovering addict and I already play but no guitar and to stay clean I need to do what I love and that's make music so please let me know what's up my name is Chad Budinger

    1. I wish you all the luck in the world on your recovery. I create and give away digital instruments only not real ones, so I'm afraid there isn't much I can do. You might try a church or someplace like that and see if they might help you find a guitar. All the best.
