Direct STRATO is our recreation of one of the most often emulated electric guitar shapes, which is a double-cutaway electric guitar designed in 1954. This model includes three single coil pickups controlled by a 5-way selector switch, 1 volume and 2 tone controls. Positions 1, 3, and 5 connect the bridge, middle, and neck pickups respectively. Positions 2 and 4 create the quaky tone by combining the middle with the bridge and neck pickups. The volume control is shared by all pickups. The neck and middle pickups have a tone control but the bridge pickup has no tone control. Our Virtual Instrument provides all 5 pickup positions. Volume and Tone controls for all the pickup positions. It is a versatile guitar, suitable for most styles of music, including country, rock, blues, pop, folk, soul, rhythm and blues, jazz, funk, punk, and heavy metal.
BrightBACKER is our recreation of a solid mahogany bodied electric guitar, with a carved top cap made of maple that provides a warm tone with ample sustain. This model includes two bright humbucking pickups controlled by a 3-way selector switch, 2 volume, 2 tone controls. These humbucker pickups produce a tone that preserves the high frequencies while retaining the thickness of conventional humbucking pickup. Our Virtual Instrument provides all 3 pickup positions. Its sound is suitable for many genres, including rock, country, pop, soul, rhythm and blues, blues, jazz, reggae, punk, and heavy metal.
Direct WIDERANGE is our recreation of another well known guitar, which features a maple neck, a contoured body and a big headstock. This model includes two Wide Range humbuckers controlled by a 3-way selector switch, 2 volume and 2 tone controls. Our Virtual Instrument provides all 3 pickup positions. Volume and Tone controls for all the pickup positions. Compared to regular humbucking pickups, the wide range pickups give a brighter and clearer tone more similar to a single coil pickup. Its sound is suitable for many styles, such as country, blues,rock, pop, folk, rhythm and blues, jazz…

THE HEART OF THE GUITAR LIBRARY
Because we wanted to capture most of the instrument’s authentic feel, we had to virtually sample all the techniques and articulations used by the guitar players. In addition, we also captured other elements such as fret buzzing, release notes, pick attacks, squeaks and some noises produced when an electric guitar is being played. Thanks to our detailed, and smart scripts, you’ll find all the available options arranged in a very intuitive, and elegant user interface. One of our innovative features is the FX-morph system, which combines the tones of regular articulations with harmonic sustained notes and feedback notes, specially recorded for this particular application. This new level of expression, unseen in other virtual instruments of the kind, allows the player to virtually replicate the tone changes produced by the guitarists when they change the pick angle and position, or the feedback effects achieved when the player gets close to the amplifier. One of the features that most influences the tone of an electric guitar, is the type of pickups they have installed, and the layout of the electrical circuit attached to them. In the process of capturing the sounds produced by such a complex instrument as an electric guitar, one of our must desired features was the possibility of choosing any of the available pickup combinations each particular guitar offers. Wiring the pickups directly to a mixing console, does not produce the same sound as passing the signal through the entire electrical circuit. So, in order to capture the authentic sound of the pickups, we decided to relay on a combination of sampling, and modeling. Analyzing the sonic characteristics of the different pickups and associated
circuits, allowed us to obtain a spectrum snapshot of each pickup or pickup combination. By means of state of the art filtering methods, we can bring to you, all the tonal changes and possible pickup combinations. We even captured the guitar’s wood resonance, since we believe it also contributes to the authentic tone of the instrument. The development process and tweaking, required more than three years of hard work, and we believe that all our passion and attention to detail, resulted in a very expressive instrument, of great playability and realism.
