Nylon Rustique is an emotional legato nylon guitar library for Kontakt.
We wanted to produce an instrument that would suit delicate, emotional lines for slower/moderate-tempo contexts; all housed in a keyswitchless patch.
To achieve this, we captured three legato types – each activated by velocity. The primary range plays the plucked natural legato performances, the high velocity range triggers the slides with no pluck samples (up to a whole-step for these) and the lower velocities activate the slides with pluck articulation – the speed of which can be controlled by the modwheel.
We’ve also included a sustains patch with three different velocities, a harmonics patch, tremolo (three crossfadeable dynamics), fret slides, guitar percussion and Auras (designed pads sourced from the guitar recordings).
We’ve included tuned and untuned versions of the patches. The untuned variations fully retain the natural temperament of the performances across the range of the instrument.
