Vir2 Fractured: Prepared Acoustic Guitar
Fractured features 2.3GB of compressed samples and one hundred new instruments with variations and effects.
Each patch is designed to feature "the organic goodness of the acoustic guitar, but stretches its timbre in new directions to create previously unheard musical effects." Drum kits were made with mallets, fingernail scrapes, metal scrapes, cardboard scrapes and pouring rice over the guitar.
Long evolving pads were built from acoustic guitar samples designed to blur the line between electronic and acoustic. Fractured also features playable and dynamic rhythmic loops and patterns, multitimbral arpeggiated creations, cinematic impacts, gritty electronic drums, gnarly and etherial melodic instruments, and more.
Fractured features a variety of controls which are custom-designed for each of its 104 instruments, for example Quantization, Effects, Envelope controls, to name a few. The instruments are subdivided into five major category folders:
- Chromatic Kits
- Drum Kits
- Pads & SFX
- Tempo Synced
Fractured ships with the free Kontakt Player 5.
