Vir2 Instruments Apollo Cinematic Guitars [4 DVD] [Kontakt]
Capture the ambient guitar sound design revolution.
From the award-winning creators of Electri6ity, Acou6tics, and MOJO Horns, Vir2 Instruments presents Apollo: Cinematic Guitars, a revolutionary new guitar-based sound design instrument. Created for all genres of music production, Apollo offers five innovative categories packed with features to enhance the creative process, as well as save time and increase productivity. The goal of Apollo is to provide the modern composer with real guitar samples, real strums, and real sounds made straight from the best guitars, the best effects pedals, the best amps, and the best signal flow available. Vir2 worked with some of the industry’s best composers and producers to bring you a comprehensive collection of sounds, giving you exactly what you need for your next composition.
Apollo provides five unprecedented categories which will generate endless opportunities for creativity. These categories are: Ambient Designer, Swells, Pads, Phrase Builder, and Instruments.
The Ambient Designer category delivers an experimental approach to sound design by engineering various tonal and non tonal sounds to create custom guitar-based atmospheres. Sounds include the utilization of various noises and sounds made solely with the guitar. Sounds included are guitar plucks, phrases, violin bow on strings, fingers sliding on strings, white noise, amp buzz, and much more. Each of these sounds can be combined, mixed, and panned to create the perfect atmosphere for compositions across all genres.
The Swells category is a vast collection of sounds giving you the option to trigger strums of both high and low iterations of major and minor chords for each sound. Individual notes were also sampled per sound in order to give the user the ability to create their own voicings.
The Pads category puts sound design into the hands of the user. Apollo features the ability to load and mix two unique sounds, allowing for the creation of thousands of unique guitar based pads.
The Phrase Builder category places common phrase options at the user’s fingertips. These types of simple phrases underscore much of what is used for film and television. Vir2 worked with top television guitarists to create an unparalleled approach for combining these phrases in such a way that a user can effectively build their own performance.
The Instruments category is an asset which allows users to create simple performances on the fly with various instruments. The instruments included are acoustic bass, acoustic guitar, acoustic guitar harmonics, electric guitar harmonics, banjo, bass, electric guitar, mandolin, nylon guitar, and sitar.
