About Cabal 8 by Wavelet Audio

For one and a half years of continuous creation of Cabal 8, we have implemented many features that allow you to use the guitar flexibly as never before. Our instrument is convenient for writing extremely detailed MIDI parts, as well as for quick sketches in real time. Cabal 8 enables you to create powerful and natural eight-string guitar parts that imitate actual guitar playing! Our guitar is suitable for work in various styles. Don’t limit yourself with only hard music genres.

Cabal 8 includes Clean DI guitar and two libraries from Cabal 8: Elements series (Hi-Gain & Crunch):

The Clean DI is a dry guitar signal; carefully edited and ready for processing. Run it through your plugins to get the original and powerful sound.
Two libraries from Cabal 8: Elements (Hi-Gain & Crunch) — fully released, distorted and crunch guitars to start the process quickly and easily right from scratch. It is Ksay Mentor’s ready-to-use signature sounds with his effect chains. These samples allow you to get the desired result without using third-party tools or plugins.

In addition to impeccable sound quality, we focused on sample editing in exquisite detail — every sample was cut and edited by hand. We recorded every single string, a whole fretboard; from open string to 24th fret. This is the most thoroughly and comprehensive recorded 8-string guitar ever sampled. As musicians, we found great inspiration in working on unique and massive guitar tone. As engineers, we did tons of work preparing the instrument to get this spectacular result.

Cabal 8 has an easy-to-use intuitive and highly advanced engine that essentially gives you the flexibility to control the instrument in real-time. Our engine gives you more realistic performances than ever and emulates how a real guitarist plays a part. By creating Cabal 8 we take every step to meet our users needs.
