For one and a half years of continuous creation of Cabal 8, we have implemented many features that allow you to use the guitar flexibly as never before. Our instrument is convenient for writing extremely detailed MIDI parts, as well as for quick sketches in real time. Cabal 8 enables you to create powerful and natural eight-string guitar parts that imitate actual guitar playing! Our guitar is suitable for work in various styles. Don’t limit yourself with only hard music genres.
Cabal 8 includes Clean DI guitar and two libraries from Cabal 8: Elements series (Hi-Gain & Crunch):
- The Clean DI is a dry guitar signal; carefully edited and ready for processing. Run it through your plugins to get the original and powerful sound.
- Two libraries from Cabal 8: Elements (Hi-Gain & Crunch) — fully released, distorted and crunch guitars to start the process quickly and easily right from scratch. It is Ksay Mentor’s ready-to-use signature sounds with his effect chains. These samples allow you to get the desired result without using third-party tools or plugins.
In addition to impeccable sound quality, we focused on sample editing in exquisite detail — every sample was cut and edited by hand. We recorded every single string, a whole fretboard; from open string to 24th fret. This is the most thoroughly and comprehensive recorded 8-string guitar ever sampled. As musicians, we found great inspiration in working on unique and massive guitar tone. As engineers, we did tons of work preparing the instrument to get this spectacular result.
Cabal 8 has an easy-to-use intuitive and highly advanced engine that essentially gives you the flexibility to control the instrument in real-time. Our engine gives you more realistic performances than ever and emulates how a real guitarist plays a part. By creating Cabal 8 we take every step to meet our users needs.
Possibility to disable certain strings from the instrument. CABAL 8 will automatically reallocate the load to the remaining strings, if possible.
Possibility to tune each of the strings. That allows you to customize the instrument to any desired guitar tuning.
Keyswitch Mode, in which you can flexibly adjust the string selection for each note using velocity.
The unique algorithm of portamento slide. You can control all aspects of portamento: speed, starting and ending positions, what noises will be present
Possibility of detailed equalization. We can equalize the whole instrument, or even a specific articulation of a separately selected string.
Possibility to configure articulations routing map, sending them to certain buses.
Cabal 8: Cinematic — we took an 8-string electric guitar, plugged it through multiple effects chains and re-recorded its lush sound. Then we used post-recording effects and manipulation to bring out the atmospheric cinematic character. An ideal tool to add atmospheric and evocative music beds to any style of music.
Cabal 8: Crunch is the first chapter in Cabal 8: Elements series. There is no need to spend time on guitar processing — no need to use any third-party tools. Just drag & drop the instrument into Kontakt to get powerful crunch sound of 8-string guitar. This guitar is a part of original Cabal 8.
Cabal 8: Hi-Gain — fully released, ready-to-use, distorted guitar to start the process quickly and easily right from scratch. These samples allow you to get the desired result without using third-party tools or plugins. High Gain is a part of original Cabal 8.
