Electria is the third in a series of unique engines producing sounds based on classic electric guitars and amps, using our 4-voice Recoil playback engine. We sampled a range of classic guitars matched to a set of classic amplifiers.
The guitars we used were: – Standard Telecaster – Les Paul Custom – Rickenbacker 360 – Mosrite Ventures (with retro-fitted dual-humbuckers) – Danelectro DC59 – Rickenbacker 330/12
The Amps: – Fender Twin – Marshall Jump – Marshall Plex – Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier – Vox AC30 – Orange Custom 50 – Roland Jazz Chorus
We sampled single notes, muted notes, major and minor chords for each guitar amp combination – resulting in 50 unique sample sets all focused on use in our 4-voice playback engine.
Note: This IS NOT a guitar library – there are lots of articulations and approaches not included here – this is a sound design and sculpting tool, that uses classic guitar/amp combos as its source material.
Electria’s powerful 4-voice dual-channel engine offers you the sculpting and creative power to use 8 different sounds in your final playback: Select any combination of voices (including repeating the same voice but with modified settings for phase shifting and beating effects), each voice then passes through the standard channel, each with their own envelope, tremolo and vibrato modules. In parallel the voices pass through our unique physical modelling style exciter and resonator engines, where you can define exciter patterns and speed, attack, release and length as well as define a re-pitching sequence. Each voice channel has independent volume, pitch and sample-start offset controls.
EFFECTS Each of the ..ia products has 4 independent effect slots where you can assign up to 4 effects. Each effect slot offers you 20 different effects to choose from.
SENDS Finally each of the ..ia products also has 4 send levels – which send to one of the 4 send effect slots. Each slot offers 6 different send effects. All the ..ia instruments have overall volume, pan and limiter controls, as well as an intelligent randomiser to produce new an interesting drone-style sounds quickly and easily.
Electria comes with 50 Snapshots to get you started.
