Plugin Boutique has launched a Show and Reveal on the Silk virtual guitar for Kontakt. Producer Joshua Casper demonstrates this smooth and elegant instrument from Virtual Guitarist.
Virtual Guitarist SILK is a concert guitar accompaniment virtuoso. From delicate, strings-only singer-/songwriter arrangements to vivid dance and pop ornaments, SILK enables a wide range of styles in your production’s sonic colour palette.
Elevate and decorate your songs with more than 60 Styles, and 670 Phrases, multiple microphone positions, and custom effects. Virtual Guitarist recorded SILK with a precious, mint condition German concert guitar built by a renowned instrument maker master in 1967.
The custom in-phase recording and editing techniques along with a customised channel strip provide access to sophisticated microphone set-ups and full control over play position and sound character.
Silk is available from Plugin Boutique for $149 USD.
In another video, Joshua takes a look at the intriguing Deconstructed Piano Kontakt instrument by Cinematique Instruments.
Even if the word „Piano“ is included in the Deconstructed Piano, this instrument isn’t quite like anything you would expect as a piano.
Explore a familiar sound of a piano in a complete new way. Play textures, strikes, hits and sustained sounds including screws. The variations of this piano are exhausted to the limit.
Deconstructed Piano is 89 EUR.
Lastly, Klevgrand Produktion’s Jussi vocal synthesizer gets taken for a spin.
Jussi emulates male voice vowels in a unique way. Thanks to a set of powerful parameters you can make Jussi sing anything from soft and airy choir-like vowels to hard and angry shouting.
Formants are controlled by playing with different velocity, which makes it fun and easy to play using a MIDI keyboard.
Jussi for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) is available from Plugin Boutique for 22 EUR.
