All libraries consist of 18 mono and 18 stereo instruments. The main instruments have a twelve-way or higher key switching mode and/or a three-way velocity switching. The first dynamic is a softly played note, the second a normal note and the third one a note played near the bridge (hard). Additional you may add a vibrato to every instrument with the modwheel. The natural ranges of the guitar recorded start with C2 or E2 and end with B5 or C5. The libraries start on E1 and end on E6. This is useful for compositions which need a bass guitar or extremely high harmonics. There is no reverb added to the samples, the guitars sound clean. If necessary, please add the NFX1 reverb via DSP Station, preset “NFX1 reverb/multi (stereo) "chamber1" with an “effect” of 55%!
Playing a guitar on the keys of a keyboard is not comparable to playing the guitar proper. Find out the right balance between playability and authenticy and you will be able to use the samples of Jovaluna in the most natural and musical manner.
