The latest release comes loaded with customizable patterns and loops designed to kickstart and inspire the songwriting process
Berlin, June 29, 2022 – Native Instruments today released SESSION GUITARIST – ELECTRIC MINT, their latest collaboration with Drumasonic, and the newest installment in their guitar-focused series of KONTAKT-based instruments.
Delivering the versatile flavor of one of the most iconic electric guitar models, ELECTRIC MINT is sampled from an original 1960 solid-body guitar made in the USA. With a focus on songwriting, the new instrument allows users to create their own melodies or explore 222 patterns across 53 song presets covering a wide range of genres, styles, and performance techniques.
Expertly sampled to the highest quality, the instrument features three combinable single-coil pickups for five distinct ways to shape tone, suited to rock, pop, hip hop, jazz, and more. ELECTRIC MINT also features an improved playback engine for ultra-realistic funk patterns, plus a tremolo bar feature for greater pitch expression.
Users can craft licks, grooves, and solos right out of the box, with 71 ready-to-go sound presets ranging from clean and DI to crunchy and high gain, as well as a range of life-like articulations. The instrument builds on previous features in the SESSION GUITARIST collection, with a variety of amps and speaker cabinet emulations, new effects including the SUPERCHARGER-GT compressor, auto-wah ‘Cry Wah’ effect, and convolution reverbs to simulate the sound of amps in different rooms.
ELECTRIC MINT can also be used as a chord library by dragging any of the four-bar chord progressions, patterns, or voicings into a DAW for further editing, or to use the MIDI elsewhere in a session for expansive songwriting capabilities.
