First Look: Carbon by UJAM

UJAM was looking to do something different with the new instrument in their virtual guitar line up and Carbon’s inclusion of multi-sampled instrument mode takes the leap from a very well designed phrase and riff player to a even more functioning powerhouse.

The library comes with a huge range of organic and distorted rhythm guitar sounds with no end to processing with easy to use effects controls that take a step away from the standard “amp/cab and pedal” simulation and the Finisher Presets that bring this instrument into the hybrid realm.

Finisher Presets


UJAM has marketed Carbon as a “storytelling super weapon” and checking out the instrument for the first time, This might have been the developer’s way to reach more media composers with the instrument. Don’t me wrong here, the “Finisher Presets” do take this metal 8-string guitar sample set and turn it into a hybrid instrument, but 8 out of 10 of the patches I checked out very much deliver a metal guitar instrument sound more so than what I might call a scoring tool.

Player Instrument provides phrases and riffs

Instrument mode allows for multi-sampled articulation switching (Legato, Shorts to Sustains) as well as quick access to common rhythmic playback (1/4, 1/8, 1/16 as well as “Shreds”)

As a metal guitar instrument, Carbon will be a real help to getting those chunky powerful rhythms and has some great programming to allow customizing playback patterns and riffs to create your own phrases.
