The eBow (energy bow), is a small, hand-held device that "bows" the strings of a guitar using an electromagnetic field. It produces a unique guitar sound, with a very slow attack and infinite sustain. The guitarist holds the eBow over the string, near the pickup or hole, so that the string sits in a small notch on the underside of the eBow. The eBow's magnets then cause the string to vibrate until it feeds back on itself at its own resonant frequency. This feedback loop is similar to amplifier feedback, but it's much more controllable. The player can vary the loudness of the sound by moving closer or farther away from the string, as with amplifier feedback. The eBow is switchable from low-power mode to high-power mode, which gives a strong, harmonically rich sound. The eBow has been used at one time or another by many top guitarists and acts: Radiohead, Tom Petty, Dave Gilmour, Sigur Ros, NIN, Coldplay, Smashing Pumpkins, The Cure, REM, U2 and more.

To create our eBow library, two guitars, an acoustic and an electric, were painstakingly sampled, with high- and low-power eBow settings, with vibrato and without. Several note-off samples were recorded for every note, to make the instrument's response as detailed and lifelike as possible. The level of the note-off sounds can be mixed to taste by the user. The acoustic was recorded in full stereo to give a natural, spacious image. The electric was recorded mono DI for use with amp simulators or for re-amping.

ModWheel Biscuit Tin Guitar KONTAKT ModWheel Biscuit Tin Guitar KONTAKT
The instrument that MODWHEEL has sampled for their Biscuit Tin Guitar library is a one off, hand crafted by Steve Roche. Steve has been making tin guitars and other odd instruments for many years for use in his soundtrack work with Plan 9 and live with the bands he performs with.

This particular instrument is a 4 string fretless with open G Banjo tuning (D G B D). For sampling purposes the range of the instrument has been extended down to the E below the D of its natural range.

The instrument is fitted with a pickup and was recorded both acoustically as well as through a vintage Fender Twin Reverb amp.

As an acoustic instrument the Biscuit Tin Guitar has a wonderfully unique sound that is caught somewhere between a Dobro and a Banjo. The electric version can sit anywhere between clean and a tin can being dragged behind a car, depending on your taste.

What You Get

There is also dynamic keyswitching to aid performance with several velocity layers and at least 3 round robins. An FX panel on each patch gives the ability to adjust the sound to further suit your requirements.

The instrument has also been used for its percussive possibilities and there are several percussion kits and BPM'd rhythm patches.

In addition there are a number of patches that play arpeggios and song patterns from a single key.
