Native Instruments have boosted their Session Guitarist series with a new addition. Electric Mint is available for £89.00.
ELECTRIC MINT captures the distinct flavor of one of the world’s most recognised solid-body electric guitars, sampled from an original vintage 1960’s USA model. Whether you’re spinning silky licks and soulful grooves, tearing it up with a roaring solo, or sitting in the pocket with popping funk lines, ELECTRIC MINT delivers timeless tones to the freshest productions, with patterns and built-in MIDI chord progressions for any style packed into one playable instrument.
From rock ‘n’ roll to soul, funk to R&B, reggae to drill, and everything in between, The ELECTRIC MINT model brought six strings to the heart of popular music. With three combinable pickups unlocking a world of tone control, it soon solidified its place as the go-to tool for some of the most iconic guitarists of the last five decades.
A powerful rig in a compact package. Dial in your tone from the instrument itself, blend in a vintage dynamic microphone signal, and send it through a collection of amps and new speaker cabinet emulations. Browse an extended library of 71 sound presets, from D.I. and clean tones, to crunchy and high gain. Keep it simple or build monstrous effects chains with an expansive collection of studio-grade effects, including the new SUPERCHARGER GT compressor, ‘Cry Wah’ effect to emulate typical Wah-Wah patterns, and convolution reverbs to hear your amp in different rooms.
Kickstart your songwriting process with ease using the new genre tabs in the browser, and click on a song preset for an instant preview of the patterns and effects. Explore a range of four-bar chord progressions for each pattern, and drag the progressions, phrases, and voicings into your DAW to create your own customized parts. ELECTRIC MINT also comes with an improved playback engine for even more realistic funk patterns.
