Virtual Guitarist AMBER requires MIDI note input for playing and recording musical performances, and optionally Pitchbend, Modulation and Sustain Pedal data for added realtime variation. If you have a MIDI controller (keyboard), this will be the easiest and most straightforward MIDI input method and it’s most fun as this way you control your guitarist in realtime. Of course you can also control Virtual Guitarist AMBER by using MIDI step sequencers or by entering MIDI notes manually into MIDI tracks.
For getting to know Virtual Guitarist AMBER and for testing purposes, you can also use the Interactive Keyboard in the top half of the Virtual Guitarist AMBER window. This works best with the Latch function enabled.
