Nylon Rustique is an emotional legato nylon guitar library for Kontakt.
We wanted to produce an instrument that would suit delicate, emotional lines for slower/moderate-tempo contexts; all housed in a keyswitchless patch.
Requires full retail version of Kontakt 5.8.1 or higher.
We have captured three legato types – each activated by velocity. The primary range plays the plucked natural legato performances, the high velocity range triggers the slides with no pluck samples (up to a whole-step for these) and the lower velocities activate the slides with pluck articulation – the speed of which can be controlled by the modwheel.
We’ve also included a sustains patch with three different velocities, a harmonics patch, tremolo (three crossfadeable dynamics), fret slides, guitar percussion and Auras (designed pads sourced from the guitar recordings).
We’ve included tuned and untuned versions of the patches. The untuned variations fully retain the natural temperament of the performances across the range of the instrument.
Nylon Master Legato: 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 slide without pluck articulation (this goes up to a major 2nd) – which is designed to be treated like an expressive hammer-on/pull-off.
Velocities 1-40 is your slide into pluck articulation, which is exactly that; a string slide to the target note which is then plucked. You can control the speed of the slide with the modwheel – simple but very handy feature to hone in the desired phrasing.
