Cinematique Instruments Bowed Guitars
As the name suggests, Bowed Guitars is a collection of acoustic guitar and acoustic bass instruments played exclusively with a bow.
By playing these instruments this way, you´ll get a special and unique string sound, the company says: intimate and intensive with slight organic scraping. The bass is available as an amped or a clean version. CI used a Martin acoustic guitar and a Harley Benton acoustic bass.
For each instrument, Cinematique Instruments recorded every note in a short, long and tremolo variation in at least 2 Round Robin variations. The long and short notes are key switched in one patch (not in the amped bass version), in which you can control either the dynamic or the attack by using the modwheel. You also get scriptings for each instrument providing a lot of variations such as length of release, amp simulation, reverb amount etc.

- Bowed Ac Guit long MW KEY (both short and long notes)
