production Department Picks of the Month – August 11′

This month we wanted to highlight a couple of unique libraries that have been exceptionally recorded and have loads of musical inspiration.  Both of these libraries heavily feature acoustic guitars of various types and perfectly fill a niche of music that is a little off beat but is heard all over the place.  You’ll hear this type of music from top charting records all the way to commercials.  With both libraries being part of the textured series, these sounds are certainly ready to fit in your music with minimal effort or tweaking.

Island Guitars is a brand new library that features a blend of Pop, Reggae, Hawaiian, Calypso, and Soca.  This 4 GB collection (1.6 gb of original 24-bit WAV files) features Ukulele, Slide and Lap Steel, Acoustic, Nylon, Hi String and 12 String, Baritone and Electric Guitars, Resonator and Dobro and a very healthy dose of Percussion (Shakers, Congas, Cajon, Bongos, Djembe, Cowbell, Timbales, Tambourine, Maracas and Brushed Snare).  These sounds are certainly not contained to the island but have broken away to the mainland with sounds that fit the vibe of many current artists such as, Ingrid Michaelson, Bruno Mars, Train, Jack Johnson, Jimmy Buffet, Kenny Chesney, Ziggy Marley, Israel “IZ” Kamakawiwo’ole and the Black Eyed Peas.

Quirky Guitars is another library featuring various types of guitars with a unique vibe and sound that will fit with many popular genres of music.  You’ll find acoustic guitar (recordings include hi-strung, de-tuned, natural, etc.) banjo, mandolin, vintage electric guitars, glockenspiel, bells, music boxes, old synths, and organs that are perfect for weaving in unique rhythms, melodies, and textures into your music.

Both of these libraries contain such a unique and fresh approach for a loop library they are bound to just make you happy listening through them.  If you’re looking for a clean and polished sound but with character that’s a little bit “different”, then definitely check out Quirky Guitars and Island Guitars.
