Every pop and rock album needs a ballad and Guitar Ballads 2 is packed with guitar-based inspiration upon which you can build your next chart-friendly mid- to slow-tempo ballad track. With a strong emphasis on acoustic and both clean and overdriven electric guitar parts, the library also contains all the necessary drum and bass elements, along with the occasional keyboard or string parts, required to build a complete musical arrangement in double-quick time.
Classic Rock and Pop Ballads with a Modern Touch
Guitar Ballads 2 features 11 huge construction kits. With 7.5 GB of samples spread across over 1600 loops, each construction kit features multiple song sections including intros, outros, verse, chorus and ‘alternative’ sections that can form a bridge, pre-chorus or middle 8 within your arrangement. In turn, each song-section features multiple guitar parts and both pre-mixed and individual drum loops so you can add variations within your song-section and fully customize your drum mix.
For all song parts, individual instrument tracks are available allowing the song to be mixed to your personal vision and ideal integration of your own additional tracks. The drums offer separate tracks for bass drum in/out, snare top/bottom, hi-hat, cymbals, overheads, room, tom, shaker and tambourine as well as a professionally completed mix for fast use.
Besides the central acoustic and electric guitars being used, Guitar Ballads 2 also contains recordings of electric bass guitars, organs, strings as well as electric and acoustic pianos. All sounds have been carefully optimized sonically using high quality studio tools and supplemented by effects to create a matching atmosphere.
