Hoard Mandolin is a versatile and dynamic legato mandolin library designed for Kontakt.
Performed by renowned session player and producer Jason Hoard, our goal was to develop a comprehensive mandolin library capable of delivering virtuosic performances as well as heartfelt simplicity.
The Master Legato Main patch is a true workhorse, suitable for a wide range of musical contexts. The Chicken Peck variant offers the same functionality while incorporating repetition sustains optimized for rapid and successive picking without compromising the inherent legato capabilities.
Both patches seamlessly integrate downstroke and upstroke legato picking techniques.
In addition to the performance sustains, we have included playable repetition patches with split-keyboard options, tremolos, sustained chords, carefully-crafted short chords derived from phrases, and even choked chucks; both playable and tempo-synced live grooves recorded at 90, 120, 150 & 180 BPM.
