Two electric guitars – played and processed totally differently – immediately carry you to a modern world of sound. Opening the whole spectrum: From delicate designed to rich and cinematic patches, it serves the sonority and flexibility, which made the guitar one of the most formative instruments of our time.
For this very special Origins, Sonuscore collaborated with the famous composer Mats Lundgren (Just Cause 2, Mad Max [Videogame], Generation Zero) from Pole Position Production. Mats recorded the guitars and processed them with his extraordinary precision.
Origins Vol 6 is powered by Mats’ incredible experience in working with electronic sounds and merged by our successful MAD engine. For this duo, the Multi-Arpeggio-Designer (MAD) gives a wonderful performance when playing chords, melodies or progressions on your keyboard.
For instance, play bold, grounded and open sequences for the Muted Guitar, and give it the magic touch with upper harmonics in a different rhythm. Let both instruments playfully mingle and use a wide variety of effects to customize the sound from sparkling percussive timbres to floating pads and more.
With a focus on user-friendliness, MUTED GUITAR & HARMONICS gives you everything you need to create a rich and modern sound. Dig deeper and tweak the instrument to your heart’s content.

“I have used sampling of original instruments and other sound sources as a core method for my own compositional process for many years, so I was really happy to be invited to create an instrument for Sonuscore’s Origins. I decided that I wanted to combine the esoteric, dreamy quality of the guitar harmonics with the more direct sound of the muted guitar. The combination makes for both good and fresh sounding arpeggios and Origins Vol. 6 is already an often-used addition to my personal sound palette.” – Mats Lundgren

The muted guitar provides a very calm, but rich sound. It gives an incredible warm intonation overall when used as the base of a harmonic structure. With the Multi-Arpeggio-Designer [MAD] you can give the instrument a characteristic, modern, sometimes futuristic feel. Paired with the Harmonics, you achieve a very balanced and wide sound, right on the modern pulse of time.
