Steinberg Virtual Guitar

Tough but true: Just a fortunate few can afford to keep a pro guitarist on a retainer to answer a late-night call to lay down a sweet 12-string track to spice up a ballad or a slamming metal groove for an ad soundtrack. But everyone else can fall back on Virtual Guitarist 2. The perfect rhythm guitarist, it plays both acoustic and electric guitar, offering the right riff for almost every style of music. Steinberg's virtual guitarist can play in any key, master even the most challenging chords, automatically play in time with your song’s tempo, and even sync up to the drum’s groove, if you wish.

Features:
Utterly authentic-sounding guitar parts, tracked by professional studio guitarists

A vast array of styles ranging from silky arpeggios to fat-and-juicy electric guitars riffs

Warm, transparent and assertive tone

Easy handling and outstanding playability

Integrated GrooveMatch technology adapts guitar parts to other MIDI grooves

Different amp models and numerous stomp box FX (also employable as an external effect rack)

Cross-platform (Mac/PC); supports all standard plug-in formats (VST, DXi, AU, Rewire) and standalone mode

New Features
Virtual Guitarist 2 offers all the content of Virtual Guitarist and Virtual Guitarist Electric Edition, plus 32 brand-new styles. The new Part Editor lets you create entirely new guitar licks, riffs and grooves at will. The enhanced version also ships with a battery of new stomp box effects, amp models and workflow refinements.

More styles & sounds
32 brand-new styles recorded by world-class guitarists, plus 56 styles originally featured in Virtual Guitarist and Electric Edition. A 6.8 GB archive of high-end recordings covers just about every musical style.

New Part Editor
The new Part Editor lets you revise and revamp every phrase rendered by Virtual Guitarist 2. And every slice can be moved, deleted, muted and transposed at will.

GrooveMatch technology
Courtesy of the new GrooveMatch technology, you can modify Virtual Guitarist parts to match existing MIDI grooves. Incoming MIDI data are analyzed and the part’s slices are automatically adapted.
New stomp box effects

The new virtual stomp box FX turn Virtual Guitarist 2 into a nifty effects rack for crafting professional-class sounds. The FX arsenal holds all the classic guitar effects - wah-wah, compressor, fuzz, tremolo, chorus, flanger, phaser, reverb and delay. Guitar-centric EQs are also available.

Amp, speaker & microphone type
For added sound-shaping power, Virtual Guitarist 2 now offers three different types of amps and four speaker models, as well as two microphones and two mic positioning options.

MIDI Learn
All crucial editing knobs are now endowed with a practical MIDI learn function. In a matter of seconds, you can assign every sound parameter of Virtual Guitarist 2 to your external MIDI controller.

Enhanced compatibility
Supporting for all standard plug-in formats such as VST, DXi, AU and Rewire, Virtual Guitarist 2 now readily integrates into every professional host application. The standalone version now also supports multiple outputs.

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
