VST instrument includes electric, acoustic sounds By Dave Nagel
Steinberg and Wizoo have released a new VST instrument--Virtual Guitarist. The instrument, playable through MIDI, is designed to produce "authentic" guitar tracks spanning the gamut of genres, from country to metal, according to Steinberg.

Virtual Guitarist includes two VST instruments--electric and acoustic. It has more than 27 virtual players, offering variations on sounds and phrasing, and includes a wide range of sounds, such as Spanish, steel, resonator, clean Strat, wah, power chords and ultra metal. Other features include:

  • Variable playing (shuffle/groove, dynamic, timing, syncopated rhythms, long chords, etc.);
  • Intelligent fret noise for more authentic guitar sound;
  • Flexible real-time variation (sound, phrasing) with keyboard, mod wheel, aftertouch and velocity;
  • Follows the tempo of a song;
  • Available for all Cubase, Nuendo and VST-compatible hosts.

Virtual Guitarist comes on three CDs and is available for Macintosh and Windows systems. It sells for about $225. For more information, visit
