SMPlugins releases Open Guitar
SMPlugins has released Open Guitar, a virtual guitar instrument plug-in for Windows PC.
Open Guitar is a VSTi 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 features
- Sound synthesis created using single note samples and DSP filters (it’s not a loop player, it’s a true instrument which can play any sequence you want, notes range is from D1 to C4).
- Strums and arpeggios of an acoustic guitar, customizable with the Soundbox with EQ controls (Steel, Strat, Twelve Strings, Sitar Guitar, Nylon Flamenco).
- “Hammer on” and “pull off” techniques are possible. MIDI files are included as an example of accurate guitar sequencing.
Open Guitar is available as a VST instrument for Windows PC and costs $39 USD. A demo version of Open Guitar can be downloaded from the product page.
