Solid State Logic has introduced a brand new audio plugin that is designed to give you the quickest route to better guitar production. Guitarstrip provides extensive control over tonal shaping, dynamics and phase correction via 4 carefully tailored processing modules designed to get the best from acoustic, electric and bass guitars.

With Guitarstrip, SSL brings its years of experience to a universe of musicians and producers working in the box. The new plugin complements their renowned Drumstrip and Vocalstrip 2 plugins and enables users to access mix-ready guitar tones faster and with greater efficiency. Aside from providing classic tube amplifier emulations, Guitarstrip also contains SSL’s legendary EQ and dynamics processing, as well as phase correction controls so your signal sounds exactly as it should before hitting ‘record.’

“Guitarstrip is a fantastic solution for both recording and mixing, and a great all-rounder for electric, acoustic and bass guitars,” says Jon Sandman, product manager of plug-ins at SSL. “Guitarists will appreciate the Drive module, which can be used to achieve anything from a clean and subtle tone, to trashy, overdriven distortion.”

In addition to the Drive module, which also contains Boost, Punch, Edge and Shape controls to help sculpt the added harmonics, Guitarstrip also contains three other powerful modules: Phase Correction, which helps identify and resolve common phasing issues; Compressor, which contains five carefully selected compression presets as well as an Auto-Gain feature; and EQ, which has a simplified 3-band channel for tonal shaping among other features.
