Rob Papen has announced the release of RG RE, a Rack Extension version of the virtual rhythm guitar groove instrument.
RG is a unique groove plug-in that is far more than just a “Virtual Rhythm Guitar player!”
By using the RG on-board sequencer it is possible to create classic Rhythm Guitar grooves, but beyond that you can use the synthesizer features and effects to make fresh new edgy guitar grooves. To play the grooves RG uses a keyboard layout split into “major chords” and “minor chords”, each with two sequence patterns (A or B). Additionally there are also the Power Chord, Distorted sound and Muted guitar sound banks which both have no major or minor range, but can still sequence A and B.
RG Guitar types included are: – The classic Fender Stratocaster electric guitar (major and minor7 chords) – A 8th note groove type Steel String acoustic guitar (major and minor chords) – A 16th note groove type Steel String acoustic guitar (major and minor chords) – A Power Chord groove type Distorted guitar ( 5ths chords / absense of 3rd) – Muted Low and Muted High groove type guitar (single notes / no chords)
RG RE is available from the Propellerhead Shop for 65 EUR/USD.
