LABS: Lap Steel
A free virtual lap steel guitar plugin from Spitfire Audio.
Producing inspiring sounds for composers, LABS plugins are created with sonic pioneers such as Hans Zimmer, and the world’s finest musicians and studios. LABS is a series of free software instruments that are presented by Spitfire Audio, and available in an easy-to-use, dedicated plug-in. The user interface is clutter-free and focused, and features simplified controls, sliders for expression and dynamics, and a knob that can be easily customised to the user’s personal workflow.
Performed and recorded by composer and producer Harpal Mudhar, these inspiring textures and plucks have been created using a vintage lap steel guitar run through beautiful delays and reverbs, taking the instrument beyond its traditional country and bluegrass leanings. With a sound fit for the widescreen, Lap Steel can be used alongside organic and electronic elements as an interesting alternative to the guitar.
