Zero-G Impromptu Electric Guitars is a cinematic Kontakt 6 instrument featuring 21 patches and over 8GB of samples. IEG is dedicated to the creation of complex guitar-based, ever-evolving soundscapes.

Please note: You need the full version of Kontakt 6.5.2 in order to run IEG. It will only work in the Kontakt Player in demo mode.

Three exceptional guitars (including an electric Baritone) were sampled in great detail at 48kHz/24bit, using condenser and ribbon microphones and processed through a large number of guitar pedals.

The centrepiece of IEG is the Impromptu Engine; a system that utilises loops of improvised, un-synced snippets combined with a granular synthesizer.

We recorded improvised performances in three different intensity layers that you are able to crossfade between using the central knob which is mapped to the mod-wheel by default.

Playing a note with the mod-wheel completely down will trigger a sparse improvised loop on that pitch; start moving the mod-
wheel up to gradually crossfade to the medium and finally, to the dense layer.

Other than the intensity, the layers were also sampled playing the instrument in different ways: the sparse layer was recorded playing the guitar with fingers, the medium layer was recorded using a soft, smooth, wooden pick while the dense layer was recorded using a thick, hard plastic pick.

The Baritone Extras folder contains three instruments obtained processing the baritone electric guitar through a series of guitar pedals. For these instruments, an SFX section is available. These effects can be triggered using the red keys in latch mode.

The Pads folder contains five instruments dedicated to creating guitar-based soundscapes. A multi-shape LFO is included to create movement and variation in the sound, its intensity can be controlled by the MOTION knob,

Turning the knobs left or right adds the corresponding shape to the LFO amplitude modulation, thus creating complex shapes.
The rectangle waveform has pulse width (PW) control. The LFO is synchronised to the host and its frequency can be changed (FREQ).

A number of extra instruments are included:
The folder Reverse Sync contains 4 and 8 bars, tempo-synced reversed samples that can be used as risers and transitions in your music.

The folder Strat Extras contains single Harmonics plucks and a Strat Plucks Multi-Pick instrument. The Multi-Pick patch is velocity-sensitive and hitting the key with different velocities will trigger samples plucked in different ways.

The folder Telechords contains a number of chordal patches recorded using a Telecaster Thinline. The two-note chords are samples containing only the root note and the minor or major third, one octave apart, which is an especially useful voicing for ambient music. Major chords are mapped on the purple keys, minor chords are mapped on the green keys. Hitting the key softly will produce a rolled chord.

A right to use the enclosed sounds is granted to the original end-user of the product (Licensee) and is NOT transferable. 3. The Licensee may modify the sounds. and MAY USE THE SOUNDS FOR COMMERCIAL PURPOSES WITHIN MUSICAL COMPOSITIONS, subject to section 7 below. 4. This license expressly forbids resale, relicensing, or other distribution of these sound samples, either as they exist on the enclosed discs, or any modification thereof. You cannot assign, lease, lend, rent, upload or download to or from any database or server, or transfer any or all of the sound samples to another user, or use them in any competitive product. 5. Licensor will not be responsible if the sound samples do not fit the particular purpose of the Licensee. The sound samples are licensed 'as is' without warranties of any kind. Neither the Licensor, or any distributor of Licensor's products, can be held responsible for any direct, indirect, or consequential loss arising from the use of any sound samples licensed from Zero-G Limited in whatever form. 6. The Licensee may use these sound samples for Foley and sound FX in TV or movie soundtracks, video game soundtracks, gaming machines, or toys, but Licensee may not re-distribute the sounds as sounds, multi-sounds, samples, multi-samples, programs or patches – meaning the Licensee cannot re-sell them as part of a sound sample library of any kind thereby effectively competing against Zero-G. Note also that use of the sound samples in isolation in video game soundtracks, gaming machines, or toys where they appear in isolation or as sound effects as part of a music game or remixing game is not permitted without first obtaining a separate written License (subject to availability) from Licensor. 7. Use of the sound samples in 'library music' (also known as 'music libraries' or 'production music'), which is intended for commercial exploitation by relicensing to multiple third parties, is permitted PROVIDED that the samples are used within a musical context and are not presented isolated or 'solo-ed'. The sound samples must be used 'in combination' within musical compositions. For such usage, any rhythm loop samples (which Zero-G regards as being musical clips in themselves) must also be combined with other types of samples or sounds to effectively form a new composition, rather than simply being looped in isolation."
