Achromic is a guitar library focussed on aggressive rhythm guitars for metal or hardcore productions. 

It specifically targets key issues often found in guitar libraries such as weak pick-attack and overly-complicated playing engines. 

Achromic is the answer for when you just need rhythm guitars fast and sounding great.Available as a standalone library for the NEAT Player, or as a Kontakt Library.

PLEASE NOTE: Achromic outputs a DI signal. You will need a guitar amp plugin (or use Kontakt's in-built one).


Non-Repeating Round Robin:

The playback engine uses a non-repeating algorithm to split 2 samples either side in a round-robin fashion. This results in a realistic sound and removes the "machine-gun" effect.

No Weak Picking: 

In addition to regular sampling, I went in and recorded individual atonal pick attacks to layer on top of the original notes. No more weak picking!

Simple Writing: 

No keyswitches. Use low-velocity for palm mutes and high velocity for sustains. Additional articulations are mapped to the coloured FX keys (like Pick Scrapes or Dead Notes).

Fret Noise and Release Samples: 

Additional noise samples were individually recorded and have a random chance to trigger on release.

Force Downpick:

For riffs that need to slam extra hard, the Force Downpick switch mutes the up-stroke articulations. This can be automated using any DAW's inbuilt automation.

Direct Signal Only: 

Achromic outputs a raw signal (DI), you'll need to provide your own sweet-sounding amps or simulations to really make the sound your own.
