Guitar Sampling Reinvented
In addition to impeccable sound quality, Wavelet Audio focused on sample editing in exquisite detail — every sample was cut and edited by hand. They recorded every single string, a whole fretboard; from open string to 24th fret. This is the most thorough and comprehensively recorded 8-string guitar ever sampled. As musicians, they found great inspiration in working on unique and massive guitar tone. As engineers, they did tons of work preparing the instrument to get this spectacular result.
