VSL Vienna Instruments: Concert Guitar
Guitar Virtual Instrument
The Vienna Concert Guitar is the only one of its kind.
This hand-made instrument was specially constructed with an arched back put together from several pieces of wood.
Its balanced, homogeneous sound allows it to stand its ground as a solo instrument as well as in accompaniment.
Due to its polyphonic nature, the concert guitar presented a special challenge. Specifically, chords only sounded authentic when the chords themselves were sampled!
After a three-year production cycle for the orchestral sample libraries, the Vienna Symphonic Library team felt ready to take up this challenge, capturing all of the concert guitar’s versatility and its many playing techniques.
The samples were "tamed" and made reproducible with the help of Vienna Symphonic Library's unique Vienna Instruments algorithms.
The Vienna Concert Guitar became a reality through a combination of individual prerequisites: The project’s godfather, Thomas Meitz, in the framework of his concert guitar diploma, spent 1 1/2 years on developing the Library’s structure.
Due to his practical background as a recording engineer and chief editing engineer of the Vienna Symphonic Library, he was able to realize his concept optimally and without compromise.
