Kontakt Instrument by Wavelet Audio

Ultimate Guitar Solution

Meet Cabal 8 — the new breed of guitar sampling.

The new breed of virtual guitar instruments is here! Bring 8-string power to your music. Cabal 8 features tons of fresh and cutting-edge possibilities detailed below. 

For one and a half years of continuous creation of Cabal 8, Wavelet Audio have implemented many features that allow you to use the guitar flexibly as never before. Their instrument is convenient for writing extremely detailed MIDI parts, as well as for quick sketches in real-time. Cabal 8 enables you to create powerful and natural eight-string guitar parts that imitate actual guitar playing! The guitar is suitable for work in various styles. Don’t limit yourself with only hard music genres.

Cabal 8 includes Clean DI guitar and two libraries from Cabal 8: Elements series (Hi-Gain & Crunch):

  • The Clean DI is a dry guitar signal; carefully edited and ready for processing. Run it through your plugins to get the original and powerful sound.
  • Cabal 8: Elements — fully released, distorted and crunchy guitars to start the process quickly and easily right from scratch. It is Ksay Mentor’s ready-to-use signature sounds with his effect chains. These samples allow you to get the desired result without using third-party tools or plugins.


The unique algorithm of portamento slide. You can control all aspects of portamento: speed, starting and ending positions, what noises will be present.


Possibility to disable certain strings from the instrument. CABAL 8 will automatically reallocate the load to the remaining strings, if possible.

Smart Tuning

Possibility to tune each of the strings. That allows you to customize the instrument to any desired guitar tuning.


Possibility of detailed equalization. You can equalize the whole instrument or even a specific articulation of a separately selected string.

Keyswitch Mode

Keyswitch Mode, in which you can flexibly adjust the string selection for each note using velocity.


Possibility to configure articulations routing map, sending them to certain buses.

Guitar Sampling Reinvented

In addition to impeccable sound quality, Wavelet Audio focused on sample editing in exquisite detail — every sample was cut and edited by hand. They recorded every single string, a whole fretboard; from open string to 24th fret. This is the most thorough and comprehensively recorded 8-string guitar ever sampled. As musicians, they found great inspiration in working on unique and massive guitar tone. As engineers, they did tons of work preparing the instrument to get this spectacular result.

A Guitar Engine for Today's Modern Sound

Cabal 8 has an easy-to-use intuitive and highly advanced engine that essentially gives you the flexibility to control the instrument in real-time.
