Hoard Fingerstyle

Hoard Fingerstyle is a warm, intimate fingerstyle acoustic guitar.

Between the brush of the finger and rounded pluck, so much personality and vibe is imparted when playing the guitar with your fingers instead of a pick.

So once again, we brought in our favorite guitarist, Jason Hoard to provide performances focused on the softer side of things.

Along with Hoard Fingerstyle, other products in the range include Hoard Mandolin and Hoard Picked Acoustic.

Please note: FULL retail version of Kontakt 6.8.0 or later is required. Not for Kontakt Player.

Hoard Fingerstyle - Warm, Intimate Fingerstyle Acoustic Guitar for Kontakt

Our “Sustains Hammer Pull” instrument incorporates new scripting that allows you to play legato hammer-ons and pull-offs within a polyphonic sustains patch.

It’s a dream to play and we constantly get lost improvising with it.

We’ve also included sustain pedal support that allows you to play successive notes without polyphony build-up while retaining it’s legato capabilities.

The Master Legato patch incorporates multiple legato articulations: Natural legato, slide to pluck (with CC slide speed control), hammer-on/pull-off, and slide without plucking – all seamlessly switchable via velocity control.

We also recorded tempo-synced, 1/4 & 1/8th note loops at five tempos: 80, 100, 120, 140 & 160; great for creating fingerstyle patterns, rhythmic beds and strums.

For added versatility, we’ve thoughtfully included tuned and doubler versions of the patches to cater to your double-tracking requirements.

Master Legato Main: This is the main legato patch which contains three different legato types; each individually activated by velocity.

Velocities 41-90 is the primary range which uses the natural plucked legato articulation – your bread and butter.

Velocities 91-127 activates the hammer-on/pull-off articulation (up to a major 2nd).

Velocities 1-40 is your slide into pluck articulation, which is exactly that; a string slide to the target note which is then plucked (from a minor 3rd up to an octave).

You can control the speed of the slide with the modwheel. Up to a major 2nd, this legato velocity activates the slide no pluck articulation.

Sustains Hammer Pull: Polyphonic sustains patch that allows you to seamlessly incorporate legato hammer-ons & pull-offs.

If the next note that you play/legato-overlap is a half/whole-step up or down, it’ll trigger the respective legato samples.

If you need to turn off the legato momentarily, the C1 key deactivates legato whenever held.

The sustain pedal now allows you to play successive notes without polyphony build-up while retaining it’s legato capabilities.

We’ve also included a Sustains Only patch without any legato.

KS Loops: These are tempo-synced successive single-note loops.

The default pattern is a plucked quarter-note (keyswitch default is C1) while C#1 switches to an eighth-note performance recorded at the same tempo.

Tuned & Doubler Patches: These variations have been hand-tuned to suit specific situations as needed.

The doubler patches are designed to serve as the secondary guitar for your left/right-channel double-tracking requirements.
