The original Virtual Guitarist was a best-selling virtual instrument series developed by Wizoo and distributed by Steinberg from 2002. The core people behind Wizoo, now in UJAM, also originated Virtual Guitarist CARBON – your new virtual instrument.
Since 2013 UJAM has revived the success of the temporarily discontinued Virtual Guitarist series with a bunch of popular VGs (as we call them): Virtual Guitarist IRON, AMBER, SPARKLE, and SILK.
While all Virtual Guitarists so far had been modeled after real-world musician/instrument combinations, Virtual Guitarist CARBON is a departure into new territory – it is a guitarist that doesn’t exist, although the sounds it creates are extremely popular across a wide range of music genres from Cinematic to Electronic to Games to Heavy Metal.
Virtual Guitarist CARBON combines a forward-thinking heavy metal guitarist with an electronic music freak and sound designer. It creates hardcore guitar sounds that can sound traditional, but where it really shines are creatively altered and mangled new power tracks – often unnatural, sometimes even unplayable.
What it shares with all other members of the family is UJAMs signature ease of use, fail-proof interface and a lack of redundant, confusing controls in favor of instant gratification.
You and Us
Virtual Guitarist SPARKLE was built by musicians for musicians. We at UJAM are a pretty diverse bunch – from DJ to guitarist to weekend producer to Oscarawarded Hollywood composer. We build every product for ourselves, and, like you, we’re all users of Virtual Guitarist SPARKLE too. That means that before we even start developing, a lot of thought and discussion goes into finding out what you, the user, will expect from the product, what problem it solves, which controls we can remove to make the product more inviting and simpler, which hurdles we can move out of the way between you and a perfect track. Virtual Guitarist SPARKLE is optimized for one clear, powerful purpose: To produce great-sounding guitar tracks without distracting you from the complex endeavor that producing a song is. We hope that Virtual Guitarist SPARKLE transpires that philosophy in everything you do with it.
Naturally, we’re always open to new ideas and critique, and you are always encouraged and welcome to talk to us:
