PLCK breaks the mold of traditional pluck libraries by incorporating crucial 'pre-pluck' information for a lively sound. Round-robin sustain samples and release triggers were derived from impulsive phrases, capturing the anticipation between notes. Hand-tuning preserves natural intonation, resulting in a warmer, more nuanced tone. Recorded at a soft dynamic, PLCK offers versatile instruments for various musical contexts.

About PLCK

PLCK is not your typical pluck library. Most efforts behind existing pluck libraries involve recording samples in complete isolation. The issue with this is that it completely omits all the crucial "pre-pluck" information necessary for a lively pluck sample; that slight, anticipatory "brush" of your finger. To combat this, all of the round-robin sustain samples were derived from procured, impulsive phrases.

We went a step further and sourced our round-robin release triggers from performances developed specifically for successive note writing; capturing the information "in-between" the notes.

In addition to these techniques, we also made it a point to non-destructively hand-tune the individual samples by ear. This results in a warmer, more natural temperament with harmonies and doublings while retaining that particular note's intonation evolution.

Lastly, we opted to record the plucks at a comfortably-soft dynamic, which we felt produced the most interesting and useful tone for this release. The end result is a collection of instruments that you can essentially "guitar-chestrate" with for a variety of musical contexts both simple and intricate.
