NUSofting launches SMPlugins
Marimka and Acidome, two plug-ins previously available from NUSofting, are now available from SMPlugins.
SMPlugins also introduces version 2.0 of virtual synthesizer Acidome, which now features waveform morphing, and a third plug-in is in the works.
Open Guitar is an acoustic guitar emulation, designed for accurate emulation of the beautiful sound of arpeggiated guitar chords in the first position of the fretboard (hence the “open” strings sound).
Open Guitar can just do strums and arpeggios of an acoustic guitar, but it is customizable with the Soundbox with EQ controls. Notes range is from D1 to C4. Open Guitar sound synthesis is created using single note samples and DSP filters. So it’s not a loop player, it’s a true instrument which can play any sequence you want. MIDI files are included as example of accurate guitar sequencing. The “hammer on” and “pull off” techniques are possible.
Open Guitar will be available as a VST instrument for Windows PC for $35 USD.
