Virtual Guitarist AMBER is a software instrument doubling as a professional acoustic guitarist in a music studio, with you being in the producer chair.
Virtual Guitarist AMBER focuses on strummed chords on a premium acoustic steel string guitar, a rhythmic staple in any kind of modern music. It offers you a wide range of playing styles (Phrases combined into Styles) and sound characters from full-bodied and warm to brilliant and shiny.
There’s a wide range of functions of an acoustic steel string guitar in a song. Two extreme examples:
- In folk or songwriter music, the guitar is often the foundation of the arrangement – with everything built around it. In this case, you’d prefer a warm, full sound and a straight playing style.
- In pop music, acoustic steel string is often used as a form of “harmonic percussion” or as a HiHat or Tambourine supplement”. This adds instant live-feel to arrangements. Here, the metallic strumming itself is as or even more important than the harmonic portion of the sound. In such a case, you will want a thin guitar sound because it is not carrying the chords, or may even interfere with chord instruments. You’ll pick a brilliant shine and use more complex phrases.
Virtual Guitarist AMBER lets you do all this and much more in no time, with minimal effort. It combines the virtues of a professional guitar, a custom premium- quality acoustic guitar, perfectly tuned, with fresh steel strings, recorded with a professional microphone and a pickup at the same time, plus the most important sound shaping tools as used in recording studios, to design the guitar sound exactly as you need it in various contexts.
