Audiolounge Claudio Cervino "Fret Affair"


With “Fret Affair” we pay tribute to the glory L.A. guitar session days from the 80’s,when “clean-silky” rack tones

were on the first page of every production book.

Weather it was “Toto” or a dozens of David Foster hit-songs,this specific sound wasthe epitome of the popular Westcoast music

during that era. "Fret Affair" allows keyboard players to jump into the souls and hands of legendary studio musicians

like Michael L, Dann H, Michael T - just to name a few.

"Fret Affair" allows you to access the iconic world of first-class rack guitar tones. Perfectly mixed and balanced and ready to play.

Whether you’re using it as "swells", "arpeggios" or any other guitar-like parts in your production,

the sound will integrate seamlessly even without using any additional processing or EQ.

Audiolounge teamed up with Italian session guitarist Claudio Cervino, who's taste and experience with sounds, instruments

and equipment is unparalleled.

Thank you for your interest in our products and we hope to enchant you with the sounds of “Fret Affair”.
