Soul Surplus - Smythe Nylon Guitar Pack (Sample Pack)

Soul Surplus - Smythe Nylon Guitar Pack (Sample Pack)

"When recording the nylon sample pack, I was really focused on texture and tone. The way nylon strings sit in a track is something special: they naturally have a rounded high end and a punchy midrange. The tone is very mellow, but cuts through very nicely.  Using the Warm Audio tube equalizer helped me accentuate this in a beautifully warm way.   Many of the pieces I played have a more complex and jazzy chord progression, but a soulful pulse behind it.  It's very easy to "plug and play" but can be chopped as well.  As a guitarist and producer, I really wanted producers to have access to a timbre and texture that they may not have before.  I hope to have accomplished that with this new sample pack!"
