WELCOME TO ILYA EFIMOV LP ELECTRIC GUITAR LIBRARY !
Ilya Efimov Sound Production now presents ‘LP Electric Guitar’; a detailed emulation of the legendary Les Paul guitar. We have invested much effort into re-creating the nuances of this guitar to make it sound as real as possible. Due to a great number of velocity layers you will be able to achieve a wide dynamic range and an extensive palette of guitar colors. The sound of each pickup was recorded separately, so you are able to control the direct signal from the pickups independently. This allows complete sculpting of the sound to your taste. Put the library through dedicated amp modeling software to really hear it come alive.
We believe that music created with the help of our library will exceed your expectations and will help you to reach the highest musical standards. Enjoy !
Glissando articulation on a guitar is played quite often not only like an effect but first of all as melody ornaments. We have recorded all possible versions for each string starting from each fret within an octave range up and down the fretboard and in different tempo. You do not have to switch among glissando versions. The algorithm will do it for you when you wish.
Any key on a piano keyboard corresponds to a certain musical note. For each note there exists just one key. But the guitar very often allows to take one and the same note on different strings. At this the timbre of notes played on different strings and at different positions will vary. In the majority of guitar samples libraries the user can not choose a string for playing notes. This impoverishes him considerably and hides the richness of the timbre. In the present Library you can use not just the first four frets but all the rest of frets. In this way you will not lose 80% of the instrument`s music colors.
To make you task easier we have created a complex script. The string selection and Playing Positions proceeds automatically according to guitar fingering. But quite often the user has to choose this and that string manually or to determine the left hand playing position.
You can choose a string by using special "string" keys. If the note you need is not available on the string you selected this note will be played on another string automatically within playing position. Holding the string selection key you can play one-voice melody line on one string.
You can at any time set the playing position to a desired fret with the “Set position to fret n” keys. If a note cannot be found in the playing position range the algorithm will look for this note on another string within the playing position range. If the note can still not be found within this range the algorithm will look for it on adjacent frets and the playing position will be shifted. The playing position is crucial for the automatic string selection.
If you play chords there a several algorithms helping you to minimize the use of the select string or set playing position functions.
The complex string selection algorithm allow you to play with keyboard and hear a real guitar.
