    Exclamation LD2 Sold Out!

    The first round of duplication has been sold out. We expect more stock on Jan. 04, 2006. All orders placed before 5:45 PM EST on 12/29 will ship on 12/30.

    Lyrical Distortion 1 provides the user with unlimited multisampled power at an extremely competitive price point.

    Welcome to Lyrical Distortion 2!



    Produced by Aaron Dirk of Bela D Media, LD2 is an extension of LD1 with a 4 GB sample pool. It can be used independently but for the ultimate experience, it is highly recommend that LD2 run side by side with LD1. LD2 also provides patches that will extend the LD1 pallet.

    Re: LD2 Sold Out!

    Can I ask what the difference is between LD1 and LD2? Is it just a different guitar/amp setup, or different kinds of articulations? Different playing style?

    Also, how would this library compare with something like www.getdistorted.com?

    Thanks!

    Glad to see it went well - I thought you had just contracted for a Hillary Duff/Donnie and Marie retrospective...

    It is the exact same guitar/amp/recording chain as LD1, this just extends the articulations list and programs for use of LD1 and LD2 together. While they will work seperately, I highly suggest getting both.

    A full list of the articulations for both can be found on our site www.beladmedia.com under the products section.

    I don't have that library so I can't say for sure. I *believe* that Alex's library linked there is phrases only and not multisamples. But I can't be sure as I dont' own it.

    Re: LD2 Sold Out!

    Dear Will,

    I can certainly understand why you would like to be made aware of any comparisons between the two products but it is simply not our place to offer said comparison. The basics can be found by cruising both company websites. From there, it is up to you to be the judge. We can speak about our own -

    LD1 is 4 GB of 24 bit samples
    Pick
    Hammer
    Palm
    Powerchord Articulations

    LD2 is 4 GB of 24 bit samples
    Up Pick
    Pull Off
    Up Palm
    Up Powerchord Articulations

    The purpose behind LD2 is to extend the users pallet of articulations and samples. Both can stand proud alone but together, they make for one amazing product.

    Advance programing updates found in Lyrical Distortion Kontakt include -

    Forced Keyswitching

    This function differs from traditional Keyswitching, as the Keyswitch function only applys while the Keyswitch is pressed, after you release the Forced Keyswitch, it returns to the default articulation. There are 4 Forced Keyswitches refered to as PHPP: Pick, Hammer, Palm, and Powerchord. The Forced PHPP Keyswitches also work in combonations, ex: Palm KS + Powerchord KS= Palm Powerchords. Aside from the 4 PHPP Forced Keyswitches, there is also a Forced Lock Keyswitch. This function locks the selected articulation to the default articulation, while it is locked the other Forced Keyswitches are still functinal. Ex: Palm KS + Powerchord KS= Palm Powerchords. Pressing the Forced Lock Keyswitch locks Palm Powerchords as my default articulation, I can now play Palm Powerchords handsfree. While I'm "chugging" along with the Palm Powerchord, I can accent some of the notes with sustained powerchords by pressing Force Keyswitch for Powerchords. Once I release Forced KS for Powerchords, It returns to the locked default Palm Powerchords. The Lock is unlocked by pressing the Palm KS/Powerchord KS combination.

    Legato Keyswitch

    With this function on, all legato notes(MIDI notes that are overlapped) triggers the hammer articulation. If a note is Palm Pick, then the legato note will be Palm Hammer,etc.... This function works great for realtime leads as well as rythum playing.

    Solo Mode Keyswitch

    There are 3 solo modes to select from.
    Solo mode 0: Off
    Solo Mode 1: All notes played are monophonic, including pedal down! This function is supurb for realtime performances. Gone is choppy sounds of repetitive notes in realtime! Now it sounds like a real guitar playing.
    Solo Mode 2: All notes are polyphonic, including pedal down (with the exception to repetitive note playing while the pedal is down - then the notes played are monophonic, just like playing a real guitar!)

    Mod Wheel

    switch between release samples on the lower part of the mod wheel, cross fades from notes to muted strings on the upper mod wheel (from 2112's nkm)
    0 - nothing
    1 - 32 release
    33- 64 finger noise release
    65-127 cross fade from notes to dn/up muted strings

    Random Cycle with no repeat- this elimanates cycle patterns and syncing both guitars associated with Round Robin cycle.

    Staccato Keyswitch

    This function is handy for playing repetitive notes if your fingers aren't up for the task. By pressing this Keyswitch, the next note you play will be the default note and will cover the entire keyboard. This function will remain until the Keyswitch is lifted. Ex: Pressing the Staccato Keyswitch and pressing G1. G1 covers the keyboard. now if I play C2,B1,A1,G1, I will hear G1,G1,G1,G1.

    Trill Keyswitch

    This is how it works: Hold Trill Keyswitch and the first key you press now will be memorized and always retriggered if you release a key (sound best in combination with force hammer). This "base" note will be retriggered as long as you hold the TRILL key.

    Alex's library has phrases as a seperate element. There are multisamples of stac, sus, mute plus note off and various FX. It can be played very easily.
    I own both.

    So much for posted dates.

    The dup house had a machine go down... hence the delay. All orders will ship 1/10/06. Sorry for any inconvenience to those who have been waiting.

    Thank you,
