DISTORT 2 is an electric guitar sample library, recorded and played by engineer Plamen Penchev, perfect for film and trailer composers on a tight deadline.
The main goal for this library has been to give the user flexibility and freedom while playing. We know that composers usually do not have time to fool around with knobs and buttons, this is why Distort 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.
