Acoustic and Electric.
The Ebow is a hand-held, battery-powered electronic device for playing the electric guitar, invented by Greg Heet in 1969. Instead of having the strings hit by the fingers or a pick, they are moved by the electromagnetic field created by the device, producing a sound reminiscent of using a bow on the strings.
We sampled sustain and release notes from 2 guitars, acoustic and electric, using an ebow. But with this instrument you can achieve a wide range of sounds because of its built in effects controllable directly from the GUI (rendered in 3D). You can find:
- Convolution (25 custom IRs).
- Release Volume.
- Voices / Detune / Spread.
