Virtual guitar plug-in with realistic performance ability.
Guitarist is a complete electric guitar solution for Mac and PC. Absolutely convincing guitar riffs, combined with amps, Wah pedals and effects. The actual guitar player has been transformed into a step sequencer system that allows control about playing styles, chord progressions and song structures. Guitarist can also be played live, with just two fingers you can combine chords and patterns easily. You can choose from factory chords or just create your own chords on the fingerboard. The Action Section allows you to tweak the sequence in real-time and apply time-stretch, looper or other crazy effects. Guitar players, keyboarders, producers, Guitarist is the new solution when guitar tracks are needed.
On 16 steps you can determine if a chord is triggered, which strings are played and if the strum goes up- or downward. The playing style (normal, dead, damped) can be determined and the strum speed can be made slower or a double strum can be triggered. Slides, bends, vibratos and portamento can be made and strings can be stopped at any time.
On 16 steps you can create chord-progressions from the factory chords or self-made user chords. Each step of the chord sequencer can be repeated up to 16 times. That way you can create long lasting compositions and change chords also earlier or later.
One of the coolest Guitarist feature is the animation sequencer. Each finger can be moved up or downward by 3 semitones. You can use it for little melodies and alternating chords and it brings immediate beauty and life to your riff.
On 16 steps you can combine the 24 available patterns to create songs or complex riffs. Each step of the pattern sequencer can be repeated for up to 16 times, that allows long pattern progressions and pattern changes also at uneven times.
Here you get some real-time action to tweak the pattern with just pressing a button! Quickly apply a Looper, Time-stretcher, slow the sequencer down or force dead- or damped notes!
Two wonderful sounding amp models are available as well as a direct out mode for your favorite amp-emulator-software.
Two effect-units with 10 Effect altogether provide the colors you are looking for. Additionally there is a multimode Wah Pedal that provides a classical Wah, talk Wah and volume pedal/tremolo mode.
Each finger on the fret board shows its note name which makes it easy to identify, alternate and create chords. 24 chords can be saved on the "Chord Board" to be called with the Sequencer or with your keyboard.
Here the sequencer is triggered and the 24 User chords and Patterns are called for playback and editing.
