A guitarist is a virtual guitar that’s designed to emulate rhythm parts played on an electric guitar. The actual guitar player has been transformed into a step sequencer system with a huge level of customization when it comes to chords or fingering patterns and detailed control over authentic nuance and expression.
- Four Electric Guitars
- More than 2,000 Samples for each Sixstring
- Control over Strum, Chords & Song Structures
- Action Section for real-time Control
- Slides, Vibratos or Portamentos
- Warm Amps and Direct-Out
- 10 Effects plus Wahwah Pedal & Talkmode
- Mute or De-tune individual Strings
Detailed control and vast arrangement options
The Patterns page in the center is actually very easy to use. On 16 steps you can determine if a chord is triggered, which strings are played, and if the strum goes up or downward.
Each string can be played individually at any time, guaranteeing gigantic arpeggios, and nuanced metal riffs are also easily done. The damp- and dead notes make it funky and lively.
The lower lanes are where you can define the chord sequences. Select a root note, choose one of 12 different chord types, each available in three fingering variations, and use the “step-repeat” for longer patterns. You can also create up to 24 user chords (incl. impossible chords) by clicking on the fretboard.
The Human Touch
The “Animations” page lets you program extra movements for each of the mechanical “fingers” on the fretboard. A finger can be moved up or down by one, two, or three semitones per step, to enrich chords with harmonic elements.
The “Action Section” offers the means for immediate intervention. Loop parts with a press of a button, including dead- or damp notes, half tempo works as well.
Four electric models
Three different guitars are built in: Fender’s Stratocaster and Telecaster are included, along with a Duesenberg Starplayer Special. The Starplayer exists in a “Bright” and “Normal” version.
Each of these beautiful six-strings was recorded with 2,000 samples. Extensive sets of fretted notes and open strings have been sampled, each one repeated several times.
The “round robin” function can alternate the playback of different samples. In Random mode, a sample is selected at random from the available pool for the note triggered.
