Virtual Guitarist CARBON

Carbon_MONITOR

The toughest element

CARBON is decidedly dramatic and cinematic. It is the sound of hellfire inside an Icelandic volcano and, also the sensitive instrumentation aboard a lonely space station orbiting the moons of Jupiter. It is heavy and in-your-face when pushed over the edge but also light-and-delicate when dialed down. Inject an instant, controlled blast of raw power or introduce a slowly evolving momentum to build up and carry a scene.

If you’re looking for powerful, modern and futuristic sounds that retain their raw organic character in any musical realm, there is a new answer now—CARBON.

This Guitar is Different

It’s the kind of raw pulsing sound that underlies the fiery music accompanying epic sword battles, or the cold dystopian soundscapes as the camera pans across inhospitable ice worlds. It’s a wild and heavily distorted sound, yet that rawness is somehow precise, controlled and sometimes even synth-like at the same time.

This quality is extremely hard to create even with real hardware. Guitar, performance, amps, processors—all these elements have to interact perfectly to maintain integrity and quality throughout the signal chain. CARBON is all this by design.

Under the Surface

We started by recording a custom, modern 8-string guitar and meticulously modeling its behaviors. We integrated it into a whole new engine that controls and transforms the raw substance in subtle and extreme ways. We envisioned and coded new processing techniques and novel signal paths to evolve these elemental sounds to their most extreme, futuristic forms.

Our Ultra Amp and Future Distortion algorithms leave no call for insane overdrive unanswered.

Our innovative Layerer feature, a virtual soundstage with up to four guitarists, lets you control bigness and width from a tame mono riff to the earth-shaking quadro Wall Of Doom.

And last but not least, we created the Finisher—a spider’s web of over 20 complex effect algorithms that work together by the command of one single knob.
