Virtual Guitarist SILK features three guitar-typical on-board effects. They provide for a greater sonic palette and allow you to create presets that sound perfect “out of the box” – because often you need that little reverb or delay for a particular sound.
The onboard effects are not meant to replace dedicated plug-in or outboard effect processors, and we encourage you to route Virtual Guitarist SILK into external plugins or outboard gear if you need more advanced tweaking options.
The Delay effect in Virtual Guitarist SILK offers five different, guitar-optimized stereo delay presets from 32 nd to 4th note resolution, as well as a mix control (left knob).
From Slapback echoes (32th setting) to rhythmic duplication using the longer resolutions – subtle delay adds width and ambience to Virtual Guitarist SILK without adding too much wash to the mix.
Adds the ambience of a studio recording room to the guitar sound. If you’re not using external effects, you should always consider dialing in a little reverb to avoid the guitar sounding dry and artificial.
When turned left, this control softens the attack transient of the guitar signal and accentuates the sustained portion. When turned right, it makes the attack transient more pronounced.
The Volume knob adjusts the master output volume of Virtual Guitarist SILK. Levels inside Virtual Guitarist SILK are usually auto-adjusted, so you will never have to level-compensate for Doubling or adding ANIMATE, but you may want to use this control to adjust the gain of Virtual Guitarist SILK before sending it into subsequent audio processors or effect devices.
