My Guitar Sample Libraries
As a guitarist I love to create sample libraries of the guitar in its different forms; sampling beautiful instruments and designing intuitive playing systems. Here below are my MG Instruments range of guitar-based sample libraries for Kontakt to date, some free and some for purchase.
MG Soft Acoustic Guitar
Releasing via Spitfire Audio in December 2023, MG Soft Acoustic Guitar brings the beautiful pure tone of a high end Martin J-40 steel string guitar to Kontakt. Featuring a chord strumming engine and a fully customisable sequencer with MIDI drag and drop, it's easy to produce authentic guitar parts with minimal knowledge of guitar theory.
MG Soft Nylon Guitar
Released via Spitfire Audio and Pianobook in March 2021, Soft Nylon Guitar is a vintage small-bodied nylon string guitar, with emphasis on a soft and delicate playing style, to give a beautiful intimate sound. Released to great acclaim, this is known as the 'felt piano' of the guitar VST world. Available for the free Kontakt Player.
MG Sweet Uke (free!)
A beautiful high-end ukulele sampled to capture its sweetness, warmth and consistent clear tone. Great for intimate fingerpicked playing styles. Available for free download via the Pianobook website (full version of Kontakt 5+ required).
MG Shimmers (free!)
An acoustic guitar tremolo library. From tranquil pads to rising tension, MG Shimmers sounds great on its own or to breathe life into other instruments. Available for free download via the Pianobook website (full version of Kontakt 5+ required).
MG Steel String Harmonics (free!)
The harmonics of a small steel-string guitar, sampled with ample round robins and velocity layers for a rich etherial feel. Increase the Attack Time to turn into a beautiful ambient pad. Available for free download via the Pianobook website (full version of Kontakt 5+ required).
