PEDAL STEEL by Impact Soundworks

Tuesday June 25, 2019. 08:35 PM , from Gearslutz

Impact Soundworks is proud to announce the release of PEDAL STEEL, a virtual guitar that captures the true sound of this quintessential American instrument!

Developed by Dimitris Plagiannis, creator of our Django and Turkish Oud libraries, PEDAL STEEL allows you to create expressive performances: sonorous leads, chords, and harmonized melodies using just a single instance.


You don't need to be an expert at playing pedal steel guitars to understand this virtual instrument: Dimitris has introduced a unique and intuitive way to perform melody & harmony parts without multiple tracks or takes.

In "Harmonized Mono" mode, you can play expressive lead parts in the right hand with automatic pitch bends and optional auto-vibrato. Holding harmony keys in the left hand while playing with the right triggers interval harmonies that intelligently follow your playing. With a few minutes of practice, you'll find it incredibly easy to play beautiful harmonized melodies!

If you want to dive in further, our bespoke harmonization editor allows you to define custom intervals and settings for each harmony key, opening up endless musical possibilities.

Pedal Steel also includes our powerful CONSOLE modular mixer & FX rack. Here you can mix between DI and amped signals, plus use up to 30 different FX modules from EQs to custom amps, cabinets, delay, chorus, and much more.
