Electric Guitar perfect for Movie and Trailer Composers
DISTORT 2 is an electric guitar sample library, recorded and played by engineer Plamen Penchev, perfect for movie and trailer composers on a tight deadline. Strezov Sampling knows that composers usually do not have time to fool around with knobs and buttons, this is why Distort 2 only requires you to load it up and you can immediately start playing.
The library is straight-forward, having two "zones" - one with palm mutes, the other one with sustains. You can play riffs with both of your hands and achieve great realistic results within only few minutes. Featuring three different mic positions, as well as seperated clean samples DISTORT 2 is in every way supperior to its predecessor DISTORT 1. However we decided to include DISTORT 1, because combining both of them gives you even more options in terms of sound.
- Doubletracked guitar (L or R), recorded separately with three mic positions (dynamic mic, ribbon mic and hall), up and down picking.
- Close mics - Peluso R14 (ribbon), Shure SM58 (dynamic)
- Hall mics Stereo pair Gefell SMS2000.
- Two round robin on sustains, four round robins on mutes.
- Open chords (Power chords), open single tones, mute chords, mute single tones
- Completely clean samples without processing included

"I love the approach of the Strezov Sampling team - they not only try to preserve the rawness of the live recording, but make inspiring and experimental products like the Aleatoric Modular Series or the Rhodope Ethnic Bulgarian Choir! I highly recommend their sample libraries!"

"Being a lifelong fan of the Eastern European music tradition, I am so grateful to Strezov Sampling for making parts of that rich vocabulary available as sampling libraries and instrument designs. They are made with the 'working composer' in mind, and have a unique, direct sound character."

"Storm Choir 2 and Thunder 2 played such an important role in my most recent fantasy RPG project. It's been difficult for me to find a choir library that's not only huge-sounding, but also well-programmed, and Storm Choir 2 really fits the bill. It's become my go-to library when I need a power choir!"
Pacific Rim, Gotham, Sherlock Holmes, Crysis 2
"The Strezov Sampling Team has definitely filled a gap in the sampling world! What really blew me away was Storm Choir II which easily has become my go to choir sample library when it comes to epic choral arrangements ... and it never get's replaced!"
