Latin Jazz Guitar is an electric guitar loop library designed to evoke the fire and passion that comes from Bossa, Samba and other styles of Latin music.
Mellow fingerstyle progressions, uptempo strummed rhythms, thumbed octave melodies and picked lead lines provide a wide range of compositional choices.
So whether it’s music for cocktails, dance, the pursuit or a moonlit walk on the beach, Latin Jazz Guitar is your companion.
"Beyond creating cool parts and capturing inspired playing, we set out to present the recordings in a layout that is simple to use and provides a variety of options.
For the quintessential fat jazz guitar sound all parts were recorded with an Eastman AR810ce 17” Spruce-top hollowbody guitar (pictured on the cover) direct to a Chandler Germanium pre amp. This signal was then sent through a dual amp and microphone sound setup.
We also made an un-amplified clean/direct version of the library if you prefer to customize the sound with your own amp simulator plug-ins.
In this library, the first guitar plays the chords and the the second guitar plays the melodies and lines. This lets you mix and match the two “players” in a great variety of ways - or provides even more possibilities if you prefer a single player sound."
