Versatile archtop electric guitar, suited for both clean and amped playing

Archtop: Hollowbody Electric Guitar is Impact Soundworks´ next-generation virtual instrument sampling a customised Sadowsky Jim Hall model with dual pickups.

This library is ideal for many genres, from jazz, funk, and R&B, to ambient, rock, pop, and beyond. With stunning realism and detail, you can write or perform virtually any rhythm or lead part you can imagine!

The gorgeous warm tone of Archtop can be processed with internal or external amps, cabs, and FX, or left totally clean; with tons of subtle detail and two pickups, it excels at clean playing.

Archtop also includes an advanced, but highly intuitive scripted interface. Articulations can be switched on/off and completely remapped to taste. A virtual fretboard provides visual feedback, and extensive engine controls are available for deep customization.

If you´re looking for a versatile, flexible, and affordable guitar instrument, Archtop is an excellent choice! Compared to other libraries, it´s highly intuitive and easy to play, providing a great sound out-of-the-box with no tweaking needed. No keyswitches or MIDI CCs are required either!

NOTE: Already own Shreddage II? Archtop has a lot to offer! While Shreddage is all about heavy, thick tones, rock, and double-tracking, Archtop specialises in more clean and dynamic playing.

Press Reviews

Computer Music Performance Award"The big sound of the hollowbody electric is at its best taking centre stage. Archtop captures this perfectly and is the sort of sampled guitar you could happily ´feature´ in a track rather than hide in the mix. It´s beautifully presented, and its pristine DI sound serves as a fantastic foundation for a huge range of tones. [...] A fabulous-sounding guitar captured to near-perfection with articulations and noises for supreme realism of performance." - Computer Music (Rating 9/10)


"It is clear that a huge amount of effort has gone into Archtop´s scripting, resulting in a very customisable instrument. Soundwise, Archtop is impressive too. Not only does it sound very real (thanks in part to its use of eight round-robin variations per articulation), but it also has a lovely mellow tone which still retains enough presence to cut through in a mix." - Sound on Sound
