Hi all -

I have some stuff that I'd love to put into the hat for punk rock stuff that other than vocal and guitars, is all products sold on East West. However... I'd need to replace the guitars with something from East West to be able to qualify.

Can someone point me to some cool guitar libraries. Maybe something that has a typical Ramones, Green Day, etc guitar sound. I can also whip up some cool hard rock kind of thing too if we have some good guitars out there.

Let me know.

-Tom

Man, I gotta tell ya…QL ’56 Strat through an amp sim like “Amplitube” or NI “Guitar Rig” is the real deal. ’56 Strat is totally clean (no distortion) and bright (for flexible cutoff freq adjustment). I have shredded more DFD sectors with this library than just about all my others. (Nick says I give him too much credit, but DON”T LISTEN TO HIM! He just made the library so he doesn’t know what he’s talking about. :D ) Seriously, If you have an amp sim, this will give you everything you need, if not, an amp sim is a good purchase anyway…very useful. Giga 2 format…just convert it into Kontakt (if that is what you use).
If you do this, here are a few tips:
1). Since the library is recorded very bright, turn down the cutoff filter to taste.
2). Adjust the ADSR envelopes so that the release time is at or near zero (this way the tube kicks in nicely)
Or just email me and I’ll send you some tips…

Interesting question. I've been looking for a guitar library for punk and alternative myself. Brian could you post some samples of typical punk/alternative phrases played with the Stratocaster library? The demo on the soundonline page isn't all that conclusive.

There are some pretty mean guitar loops on Adrenaline -

Actually Brian I took your advice. Most of 56 Strat is in Colossus and it has a filter assigned to the mod-wheel. It's amazing with guitar rig!!

Yes, I use both Amplitube and Guitar Rig. They're ridiculously good.

You wouldn't purchase/use a midi (keyboard based) controlled guitar lib just to qualify for a comp would you??

Freeamp3 and Flying haggis could be good for you. I've used both with the 59s in colossus and they sound nice enough.

If you're using Pro Tools, Eleven is the way to go for Amp Sims. Smokes everything else out there... I mean, c'mon... They named it after a joke in Spinal Tap, for crying out loud! Ya know it's gotta be the bee's knees!!:D

the anderson strat with the american punk preset in gearbox gold is cool too.
ministry of rock could work well too The round robin programing yields very realistic results.
