A beautifully recorded, one-of-a-kind guitar.
The Vienna Symphonic Library Horizon Series Vienna Concert Guitar features a handmade instrument, specially constructed with an arched back put together from several pieces of wood. Its balanced, homogeneous sound allows it to stand its ground as a solo instrument as well as in accompaniment.
The Concert Guitar was especially challenging for Vienna Symphonic Library because due to its polyphonic nature, the concert guitar chords only sounded authentic when the chords themselves were sampled!
After a 3-year production cycle for the orchestral sample libraries, the Vienna Symphonic Library team was ready to capture all of the concert guitar's versatility and its many playing techniques. The samples were "tamed" and made reproducible with the help of the Vienna Symphonic Library's unique Performance Tool. The project's godfather, Thomas Meitz, spent 1-1/2 years developing the Library's structure. Due to his practical background as a recording engineer and chief editing engineer of VSL, he was able to realize his concept without compromise.
