RIFFENDIUM SERIES is a themed sample library collection for modern producers and composers.
It includes loops of real, modeled, synthesized and designed instruments, resulting in an original palette of inspiring sounds for creators of electronic and organic music.
Our first release in this series is a collection of electric guitar loops which spans from clean ballads strumming and arpeggios techniques to raging grunge rock guitar riffs.
and includes RIFFENDIUM REV and REV DI
Now includes Riffendium REV and REV DI, which use the same samples pool of Riffendium, but have the ability to reverse the loop slices.
It means that in one package you get, not one, not two, not even three, but four Kontakt instruments!
We also added a new pitch control to Riffendium and Riffendium DI, so now the double track can be pitched to create interesting sounds like faux 12 strings guitars or pitch shifting pedal effects.
- Improved CPU usage
Our first instalment of this new series includes 2 instruments: RIFFENDIUM and RIFFENDIUM DI bundled in a single package. RIFFENDIUM’s samples pool is made of recordings taken from the amplifier’s output and offers ready made guitar sounds, for a fast workflow. RIFFENDIUM DI offers samples taken from the guitar output signal, allowing you to use your favourite Amp Simulator and guitar chain, to fit your music 100%.
Generate unique custom loops by using RIFFENDIUM’s articulations sequencer. Since the articulations come from a real performance, the result will always sound like a real guitarist playing a new guitar part
44 Guitar Performances
Start from one of the 44 original recordings, then edit, re-arrange the slices, randomise, save new guitar parts. This first release includes useful guitar loops that will fit in many styles of music, from rock to film scoring.
From Guitars to Infinity.
Riffendium’s engine makes it incredibly easy to create a guitar sound that fits your song, but it also allows you to build out-wordly sounds that you won’t believe they originated from a guitar performance.
No more stale one-key loops. These loops are alive!
Stale loops will hardly fit your music chords and will result as a robotic repetition of the same thing over and over. RIFFENDIUM’s loops will follow your chords as they were recorded in most major and minor shapes (and more than just that). RIFFENDIUM’s loops use Round Robins, therefore at every cycle the loop will sound slightly different, like a real guitar performance.
Pedals, Speakers and Effects
RIFFENDIUM provides the straight Amp Output signal and different Cabinets simulations for more tweak-ability. You can also bypass RIFFENDIUM speaker simulations and use your favourite Cabinet impulse responses. Also, 4 distortion, 4 modulation effects plus master delay and reverb are available for more sound tweaking.
Instant Double Track
At the touch of a button, a double track guitar will appear on the right side of the stereo spectrum, with its own Effect Pedals chain and volume. This is not just a simple stereoizer effect. It’s a complete set of new samples that sound different as they should. A real double track.
We would not be Audiofier if we did not add some craziness to our instruments. A Step Volume and Step Filter fx will add movement and excitement to your guitar lines.
A different approach to stuttering with assignable or random repetitions for each articulation slice, with echo effect or pitch detuning. Fun from another world!
You can filter the original loop performances by category: clean, crunch or distorted tones; straight, syncopated or riffy parts; including chords, power chords or single notes. Easy!
A staple in our instruments, with taylor-made impulses that will enhance and/or mutate the sound turning into something totally different. Is this still a guitar?

Just WOW! This sounds AMAZING!
To start with, it features a wide array of some nice riffs that are well recorded, presented both amped and dry, and perfectly chopped. The amps sound great, but you can re-amp in your own amp software if you like. Using the randomizer to generate new riffs is the standout feature for me -- it's almost like having a guitarist just jamming variations on a riff. But as it's random, the results are not always the typical type of lick a real player might come up with--which can be very inspiring. The editing process is fairly easy and allows you to get pretty detailed with the slices as well. Its a very well thought out program with an easy GUI.
As a guitarist, using this in my production flow almost for guitar tracks almost feels like cheating. Because the results sound great without me doing much. As a producer, it's a fabulous tool for filling in the gaps and getting great sounding results quickly.
