Ebow Guitar Samples
They are just £1.50 each (or you can buy both together if you like), but I’ve not scrimped on the quality in the slightest! Both sets were recorded as 24-bit wav files, with every note recorded individually on my beautiful Gibson SG using an Ebow.
The notes sustain for a long time (most samples are between 15-20 seconds), and are looped in the sampler so they sustain forever.
I’ve made sure the samples are all different lengths so that if you play a chord, the notes don’t loop at the same point, so the texture keeps changing as long as you hold down the notes.
That’s actually one of the coolest things about these sample sets – you are not limited to one note at a time, like you are when you are actually using an ebow on a guitar – and that changes the whole vibe of the sound.
When the notes are sampled and played on a midi controller, you get this amazing deep, organic pad sound.
The sound is transformed!
You can play chords! Each note moves and evolves in a different way, and I’ve spaced them in stereo in the sampler, making it a really immersive, “living” sound.
Or click on the text link here to buy: Ebow Guitar Fast Attack Edition
This was made by hammering-on the guitar string, so the attack is quick – more agressive.
you can listen to an audio sample here (There is nothing except this exs24 instrument in the audio sample – this is exactly how it sounds “out-of-the-box” so to speak:
Ebow Guitar Long Attack Edition (purchase link)
This set was made by letting the ebow start the string resonating itself – which results is a mellower sound than the previous set – there’s a natural, evolving, fade-in that makes for a fantastic pad sound.
you can listen to an audio sample here (again this is a “naked” recording, nothing but the exs24 instrument in question and no extra fx:
The folder includes an exs file so you can just drop it into your sampler instruments folder and click refresh in the sampler menu and it’s installed.
Just to re-iterate – the examples I’ve recorded here are “naked” – no effects added, this is exactly how they will sound when you load them up. They react especially well to guitar fx though. And reverb..delay…filters..all good
They are priced at the ludicrously low cost of £1.50 each.
If you want both sets in one go, you can buy them together for £3.00 in one go here:
