Designed, recorded, and produced by Dimitris Plagiannis, our first entry into the Plectra Series of virtual instruments is a classic instrument of Greek music. Reminiscent of the European mandolin but with a deeper, richer tone, the bouzouki has its roots as one of the oldest musical instruments. No sample libraries existed that truly captured this beautiful instrument in great depth and detail, until now!
Our 8-string acoustic bouzouki has been thoroughly sampled and produced with all the love and care you would expect from a next-generation virtual instrument. Extensive, custom scripting by Dimitris has been created to simulate real playing as accurately as possible. From dynamic changes to up and down strokes, string selection, note speed, legato slides, hammer-ons, pull-offs, and more, every facet of bouzouki performance has been painstakingly recreated.
When it comes to freely downloadable multi-sampled guitars, there are surprisingly few high-quality libraries online. For example, there are dozens of excellent piano sample libraries you can download for free, but that is not the case with guitars.
The download of this library is delivered using the Pulse Downloader app which needs to be installed first. You will also need to sign up for a free Impact Soundworks user account. After signing up and adding Shreddage 3 Stratus FREE to your user account, you will receive the download key for Pulse Downloader.
Peel Guitar is a free guitar sound library for LABS, a free sample player VST plugin. Developed by Spitfire Audio, the LABS sampler plugin has quickly become one of the best virtual instruments for sample playback. The reason for this is that the team at Spitfire Audio keeps releasing high-quality sample libraries for the LABS platform. These are often professional-quality sound libraries that could easily cost $50 or more.
Pettinhouse offers several free guitar sample libraries for Kontakt. Although the full version of Kontakt is required to use the included NKI patches, each library also contains the samples in WAV format. This means that they are compatible with virtually all sampler plugins and digital audio workstations on the market.
A library called FunkyGuitar is pictured above, but you can also grab a free acoustic guitar library, a nice collection of guitar mutes and slaps, and more. The samples can be downloaded directly from the Pettinhouse website without signing up for a user account.
The single largest piece of remaining work relates to playback. The 'primary' Fluid synthesiser will remain the default, as is the case with MuseScore 3 but we will be removing the the 'secondary' Zerberus sampler/synthesiser and replacing it with VST support (Zerberus is incompatible with the GPL3 license, which we needed to switch to in order to support VST3). We are also developing an optional sound library that will not be packaged with MuseScore, which can be downloaded and activated (for free) once the application has been installed. We will create a separate detailed post about this shortly.
