Hans Zimmer Guitars vol. 1
For the first time, Oscar & Grammy award winning film composer Hans Zimmer releases sounds from his private sample library created by Bob Daspit. These powerful guitar textures are more detailed & expressive than any other Guitar library, with patches containing up to 12-way velocity switching, allowing for such nuances as dynamically-controllable string slides, pops & harmonics.

The versatility of this collection is unmatched, ranging from a wide variety of pristine acoustics, vintage Telecasters, 32 meg leads, to a rare $11,000 Paul Reed Smithâ„¢ collectors edition "dragon" guitar! This outstanding library also includes Guitar grooves presented in every key signature and multiple tempos.

The current version of Zimmer Guitars vol.1 adds three additional new acoustic guitars -sampled without vibrato, in multiple dynamics: a beautiful new Nylon string, 6 string Folk Steel string & the unique Parker "Fly" Electro-Acoustic guitar. Also featured are major & minor acoustic guitar strum samples. These articulations are available in steel and nylon string versions, with both up and down strokes!

Hans Zimmer's relentless pursuit of the ultimate samples for his private library has fueled his rich sonic approach on his scores for:

Gladiator, Mission Impossible 2, The Lion King, The Rock, Crimson Tide, Broken Arrow, Rain Man, Driving Miss Daisy, Cool Runnings, Black Rain, True Romance, Thelma & Louise, A League of their Own & many others.
