Desert Guitar is a loop library designed to create music that evokes images of the American Southwest.

Ominous baritone guitars, twangy electrics and swelling steel are rounded out with acoustics, resonator and mandolins, creating themes that are haunting and powerful.

Desert Guitar is the perfect companion for any composer writing for lonesome highways, gunfighting outlaws, whisky in the saloon, and more.


“With the sounds of Ry Cooder and Ennio Moriconne in our heads, we set out to capture the musical vibe of the desert with our guitars.

The American Southwest is a wide and varied place, resulting in a range of suites with titles like “Tumbleweed Oasis”, “Bottom of the Bottle”, “The Showdown” and “Across the Border”.

Each suite combines three different stringed instruments that can be used individually or played together.

The Kontakt interface has been designed for the “desert guitar sound” by including a dual reverb signal path allowing the guitars to go from a “spring” verb into a studio/room/chamber sound. And of course there’s tremolo!

All acoustic instruments were recorded with Neumann KM 184 and Royer 122 microphones into Chandler Germanium preamps.”
