The Sound Of The eBow

The Sound Of The eBow


Soniccouture have released eBow Guitar which they tell us is the first sampled re-creation of the unique sound of the eBow. The eBow ( Energy bow) is a small, hand-held device that 'bows' the strings of a guitar using an electromagnetic field, producing a unique guitar sound, with a very slow attack and infinite sustain.
Soniccouture tell us that two guitars were painstakingly sampled, an acoustic and an electric. Both were sampled with the high and low power ebow setting, with vibrato and without vibrato. Several note off samples were recorded for every note, to make the instrument's response as detailed and lifelike as possible. The level of the note-off sounds can be mixed to taste by the user. The acoustic was recorded in full stereo to give a natural, spacious image.
