8Dio Emotional Guitars The Collection [KONTAKT]

A couple of years ago, we wondered how we could make a library that could encapsulate the most important human emotions, those that drive us to act the way we do, what makes us human. After some research, we discovered the Plutchik Wheel, which would summarize human emotions in a wheel, relating them by proximity and similarities.

After narrowing down the project, we decided to make this library only with guitars, to try and make the musician recording these emotions CREATE them with his hands, craft every single note with his art and not merely sound design. This is how Emotional Guitars was born – from the hands and inspiration of one musician (with a lot of guitars), to your fingertips. We loved working on this project, and we are sure it will become an army knife of reaching quick results for you.

With thousands of emotional Rhythms, Pads, and 32 Multi-Sampled Guitars organized into 32 different articulations (Emotions) that closely follow the Plutchik’s Wheel, it has never been easier to score scenes with this much of an emotional impact. Whether you need just a simple underscore or a more complex score that weaves in and out between dozens of different emotional textures, Emotional Guitars has you covered.

Emotional Guitars: Bundle includes the Emotional Guitars Multi-Sampled, Emotional Guitars Pads, and Emotional Guitars Rhythms, which feature multi-sampled guitars, over 1300 custom pads, and 32 multi-sampled guitars all designed with a single guitar. It truly has never been this easy to score with such emotion and such accuracy. Any situation, any time.

Psychologist Robert Plutchik theorized that there are eight primary emotions: joy, trust, fear, surprise, sadness, anticipation, anger, and disgust. Plutchik’s wheel illustrates eight primary emotions and 24 complimentary emotions. This tool not only demonstrates the emotions that relate to one another, but also show you the emotions that are polar opposites.

Variety is the key to taste! Thanks to our unique and flexible engine, a combination of any of the emotions is possible, so you can reach that perfect tone. Combine Love with Sadness to get a new taste, or maybe Terror and Serenity could be what you’re looking for. Any set of emotions can be stacked and manipulated in infinite ways. With rhythms, pads, and multi-samples, you can add that missing element to your composition, no matter what it is!

We have organized Emotional Guitars so that you have everything in front of you. There are no scroll bars to go through the emotions. Instead, everything is organized alphabetically in two patches, allowing you to quickly change between emotions. One patch assorted from A-F and another from G-Z. Quickly access any emotion and control its unique identity with the range of front-facing effects, including attack, release, speed, pitch envelope, glide, and offset.
