Virtual Guitarist 2
Steinburg Media Technologies this week presented the new version of its Virtual Guitarist software product, Virtual Guitarist 2. The software offers 6.8GB of editable riffs, parts, and licks in 88 musical styles. The computer-base insturment creates both electric and acoustic guitar parts, with an expanded audio library, and a range of virtual stomp box effects modelled to recreate tube saturation, wah, flanger, distortion, and other effects. The new amp modelling section recreates the sound of both modern and vintage guitar amps, as well as microphone type and positioning. Virtual Guitarist 2 for Mac OS X is due in February 2006 (pricing was unavailable). Steinburg also announced that intends to update its Nuendo and Cubase software for the Intel Macs.
