Hey guys! We are happy to introduce our latest effort - 8-string library. We have two product options: Cabal 8 and Cabal 8: Elements.

Cabal 8: Elements is a part of our brand-new Cabal 8 library. It includes fully released Hi-Gain and Crunch guitars to start the process quickly and easily right from scratch. These guitars play our signature sound using already processed signal with our FX chains. These samples are very convenient for fast work allowing you to get the desired result quickly without using third-party tools or plugins. Save your time and immerse into fully inspiration workflow with ready to use instruments.

Cabal 8 Full includes Clean DI guitar and libraries from Cabal 8: Elements. Plus, Cabal 8 ships with full-featured Bulldozer software with our unique presets for a quick start! Our instrument is convenient for writing extremely detailed MIDI parts, as well as for quick sketches in real-time. Cabal 8 enables you to create powerful and natural eight-string guitar parts that imitate actual guitar playing! Our guitar is suitable for work in various styles. Don’t limit yourself with only hard music genres.

Thanks for all the great comments :)

All over this! Hopefully there will be drums and bass vsti as well

IMHO, if you run after two hares, you will catch neither. We decided to give all our attention to the guitar at first.

We would like to keep the thread updated with new info and video demonstrations as regularly as possible to give you an idea of what the library can do. Feel free to ask any questions, I hopefully can explain some details. Still, lots of hard work to go though.


What riffs would you like to hear featuring CABAL 8? :)

Sounds good! I guess if I wanted to ask something it would be what kind of range we could expect? What kind of slide and hamme on/pulloff options we're looking at. Amount of dynamic layers.
Keeping it basic for now!

Riffs I would like to hear featuring your product hmm. Are we talking about something to specifically show the downtuned capabilities or just riffs in general that might be played in more usual tunings?

:)

Maybe something from Fear Factory, like Archetype


Or Linchpin


Keep us updated! I'm highly interested in this one.

  • We sampled a whole guitar - 8 strings and 24 frets. So, the dynamic range starts from E1 (could be pitched in the engine to C1) and ends on E4 (could be pitched to G#4).
  • We have a portamento slide algorithm. And you can set a portamento speed right on the fly using pitch bend. It is very convenient. You do not have to "guess" the distance of one overlapping note from another.
  • We have guitar tappings (works like Hammer-on/pull-off).
We hope we can show how it works soon.

UPD: This guitar is recorded dry. So, it could be used for any genres from Djent and Trailer music to Ambient. Thanks for the music suggestions :)

Alright, sounds very good so far!
Glad to hear it's a whole guitar sample library thing!

Hey guys! We are on the finish line to officially release our latest effort. Today we tried to recreate Meshuggah tone with our upcoming Cabal 8 using Bulldozer by Audio Assault. Also, we repeated exactly the whole guitar part (same strings, frets, articulations).

Actually, you can do absolutely whatever you want with the guitar - from thall and djent to pop and trailer music.

V'got the feeling we are this 15th of July you were talking about.
Aren't we?

The library is 100% ready and works great. But we had to move the release date to the 25th of July. Sorry about that.
