Acousticsamples releases SunBird!

Acousticsamples has just released its newest product, Sunbird based on a 1962 Gibson Hummingbird acoustic guitar.

The Hummingbird guitar was created in 1960 by Gibson and was the first square-shouldered dreadnought. It was designed to be extremely versatile so that it can cover many music genres and have a deep tone without being too powerful, which is perfect to accompany a voice.

Special attention has been paid to making this a very realistic instrument, the way it sounds just like the real instrument and the way you are able to reproduce authentic playing styles. There are basically 4 modes (that you can choose using keyswitches, G5 to C6), the solo mode that allows to play melodies, the chord mode that helps playing strums or picking very easily, the patterns mode that does all of the strumming or picking for you and the MIDI mode that allows you to use your preferred midi guitar controler.

It is able to transpose and/or pitch a WAV or AIFF audio file with extremely accurate results and minimal artifacts making it possible to process professional recordings with transparent results. A life saver for audio engineers and broadcast technicians !

But “TS” is much more than a simple time shifting tool. the application can transform an audio signal at extreme settings making it into a totally new sound! Simply drag a WAV or AIFF file into “TS” and stretch it down by 100%. That will give you a quick idea of how powerful it is. Now use the formant, transient, sinus or noise sliders to sculpt your sound and create totally original audio textures. Sound designers, DJ’s and musicians will be amazed by the unlimited possibilities offered by “TS” to create totally new sounds. From a basic drum loop to pianos, voices or any other audio signal, “TS” can make something totally wild and original out of it…
