Tips & Tricks:
Hold Shift when adjusting parameters for extra precision
For all the Acoustics Folder Unfold patches, first press the little bypass button on the bottom of each effect if you want to add distortion or saturation. This was a decision to make sure the acoustic sources do not get processed unless desired so
Automate the Sample Start on the acoustics unfold patches throughout your composition for more variation and movement
Do not forget to install the Snapshorts, a great way to get some examples what the Designer Patch is capable of
Press the right mouseclick on any knob or slider to add your own desired CC
Almost all patches have a Modwheel function assigned so always make sure you wiggle it before playing/recording to ensure the volume and/or dynamics crossfade amount/automation is as desired
The Pluck Elements Patch is meant for sound-design purposes and to quickly get ideas down and experiment with effects and the arpeggiator. All short articulations have fewer round robins in this patch than in all the individual patches of these instruments
This Sample Library is definitely not aimed to become your new bread and butter guitar library, rather at evoking new ideas and experimentation with new acoustic sounds and adding different and organic acoustic raw, and sometimes gritty textures and accompanying rhythmical short pluck instruments to your project

Some of the Sound-Design Patches can be very heavy on CPU.
Most patches are recorded and sampled in whole tone, only a few are chromatically sampled.
Please watch all walkthroughs thoroughly to see if the raw character of this library is for you
The scratchy pitchy Indie Violin patches are added for sound-design purposes, and to experiment with in the Designer Patch to layer in and to add crazy wild sounds, not meant to use in your next John Williams masterpiece!
I'm an indie developer, and this should be considered a niche library for textural colours.

Great variety in Sound Design patches and processed Perc Hits
Unfolding patches slightly premixed for quicker results
All Demo's have a limiter and EQ on the Master bus and some Compression and on some demo's I have used Seventh Heaven to add more reverb.
