Secret Agent Guitar

39.00 USD

A guitar with personality and character. Most people sample the nicest guitar they can get their hands on, but we went for the most interesting. This is over 10000 samples of a Defil Tarantella electric guitar made in Poland in 1972, which is a lot like those cheesy old Japanese and Italian electrics of the 1960s, but even weirder. We sampled it as a 6-string, as a 12-string, in Nashville tuning, and both electrically and acoustically. This is basically the ultimate quirky indie guitar, and a terrible guitar for death metal unless you're making death metal ironically.

Key features:

  • Three articulations: pluck, hammer-on and harmonic
  • Plucks sampled with 3 velocity layers
  • All articulations sampled with 4 round robins in regular tuning, 3 round robins in Nashville tuning
  • Feedback, string brushing noise, percussive noise and release noise sounds
  • Every string sampled on every fret
  • Low E string also sampled tuned down to Eb and D
  • Three vibrato types: string-bending, violin-style and tailpiece
  • Muting control for the spy movie twang
  • Over 10000 samples, 3.76 GB extracted

There were also basses made by Defil during that era - the solidbody Lotos, the hollow Rytm, and the Mambo, which has a body and pickups very similar to this guitar. Looking for a Mambo to sample which did not have a broken or warped neck proved difficult, so a Rytm became Secret Agent Bass.

Requires Plogue Sforzando version 1.933 or newer, which can be downloaded for free from Plogue's website. All the samples are also included as unlocked WAV files, so you can also use them as one-shot samples etc. if desired.
