Westwood Instruments Lost Guitar

You’ll discover a huge variety of different tones and moods that can be combined and manipulated to create almost limitless possibilities.

Created using a baritone electric guitar and a whole list of unusual ideas, this is our largest release in the Lost series, with the widest range of ideas. From sheet music to songwriting, get ready to discover your new favorite guitar sounds.

With the tool’s endless range of capabilities, we’ve created over 300 snapshot presets to get you where you need to go quickly. Designed so that you can find a simple starting point that you can follow in your direction, or choose from one of the more complex and interesting combinations that you may not have thought of.

NOTES

From the simple to the mangled, these are all sustained guitar sounds. Some sound like a guitar and others are pushed to the point of being unrecognizable.

MOVEMENTS

Random scatterings of single notes. Not recorded to a tempo, these are meandering and off-the-cuff. Sometimes delicate, sometimes unpredictable. Always interesting.

TEXTURES

Infinitely looping landscapes that feel like a synth. Some are soft and blurry. Some are misshapen and confused. Some are dark and hostile.

RHYTHMS

Organically rhythmic loops. Plenty of real and human variations in timing. Beat syncable to any tempo, the further away from 120BPM you get the more interesting things get.

More than just a guitar library

The original sessions were all played on a Reverend Descent baritone guitar. These raw recordings were then taken and given the Westwood treatment you’ve come to love; cassette, reel-to-reel, boutique pedals, and hardware samplers.

Most of what you’ll hear and experience sounds like a guitar, but this is not a virtual instrument that is attempting to replicate a guitar. Think about it more like a vast range of incredible sounds made from a guitar.

Rhythmical underscore

The MEMORIES engine creates an arpeggiated underscore. Load any of the 112 sounds and transform them into a distant haze or a more upfront accompaniment. More interesting than a delay, more sophisticated than an arpeggiator.
