Virtual Guitarist AMBER 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 AMBER into
external plugins or outboard gear if you need more advanced tweaking options.
The Delay effect in Virtual Guitarist AMBER offers five different, guitar-optimized stereo delay presets from 32nd to 4th note resolution, as well as a mix control (left knob).
From Slapback echoes (32 setting) to rhythmic duplication using the longer resolutions - subtle delays adds width and ambience to Virtual Guitarist AMBER without adding too much wash to the mix.
Adds a guitar-optimized Chorus effect. As you turn the knob, the chorus will go from a subtle slow flanging to a fast, deep, almost twelve-string effect. Try the Chorus particularly for adding a bit of detuning and depth. Be careful not to overdo it – there’s just a fine line between a nicely animated guitar rhythmand a sticky mush of 80s kitsch.
Virtual Guitarist AMBER’s reverb is a quick way to add the atmosphere of a large recording room in a professional studio, particularly suited for the percussive character and rich harmonics of an acoustic steel string guitar.
The Volume knob adjusts the master output volume of Virtual Guitarist AMBER. Levels inside Virtual Guitarist AMBER are usually auto-adjusted, so you will never have to level-compensate for Doubling or adding Shimmer, but you may want to use this control to adjust the gain of Virtual Guitarist AMBER before sending it into subsequent audio processors or effect devices.
