Applied Acoustics Systems has released Strum Electric GS-1 (Mac/Win; $229), a guitar track production plug-in that includes a collection of classic single coil- and humbucker-fitted guitars, a two-channel amplifier with spring reverb, a speaker cabinet, and effects all featured in a ready-made preset library.

Strum Electric GS-1 also includes a voicing module that automatically voices chords played on the keyboard just as a guitar player would on the fretboard. The plug-in's strumming keys trigger techniques such as down- and up-strokes, slides and bends, hammer-ons and pull-offs, palm muting, muffled strings, and arpeggios. In addition, it comes with a MIDI loops library, which provides rhythmic figures, strumming patterns, and chord progressions in various musical styles.

The Strum Electric GS-1 plug-in works as a standalone application, as well as in host sequencers supporting VST, AU, and RTAS plug-in formats. To learn more, please visit
