A glorious ESP 8 String baritone guitar

The second release in The Choco•Matic Series features again the sound of a one-of-a-kind wonder: a custom shop ESP 8-string baritone guitar made for Gianluca Ferro. Two of the most powerful and balanced active EMG pickups were paired with boutique amps, effects and custom re-amping to achieve a thunderous guitar tone, tailored to cut its way through busy mixes in any genre: cinematic, orchestral and modern rock music in particular.

Playfulness

Gianluca Ferro is an accomplished guitar player and an ESP endorser. Having played in numerous international metal acts, knows quite a bit about the tone and attitude required to achieve perfectly tight and soulful tracks.

The Choco•Matic Engine

This is not your common "play a phrase at a time" engine

We built this engine making use of our expertise as sample library producers since 2003 and our needs as users of such phrase-based instruments.

Triggering and arranging up to 4 parts at a time

HOW TRIGGERING WORKS

The scheme above exemplifies our system for triggering.

Sync-Legato.png

Triggering can happen either in Temp or Latch modes.

Playback Timing sets the moment when changes are actually triggered ("immediately" up to "next Bar").

Sync/Legato tells the engine the way you want to concatenate the different Phrases (see below for details).

Sync/Legato - a unique feature

We have always wondered why triggering a phrase and then another cannot simply make the first phrase flow effortlessly into the second one, rather than re-triggering the whole thing from the start in a rather un-musical way and vastly limiting the expressive possibilities offered by such phrases.

So, we took care of it.

Not only, this same logic applies also to the switching of Tonal Centers (harmonic contexts), allowing you to create custom harmonic progressions and/or riffs starting from the same Phrases, thus achieving almost endless creative possibilities for each release in The Choco•Matic Series.

A v. 2.0 exclusive of the engine is the ability to anticipate or delay each single part by the desired amount in musical time.
