Based on the latest AAS physical-modeling technology, Strum Electric includes a collection of single-coil and humbucker-fitted guitars, a 2-channel amplifier with spring reverb, a speaker cabinet, and effects in a ready-made preset library. It also includes a voicing module that automatically voices chords played on the keyboard as a guitar player would on the fretboard. Techniques such as down- and up-strokes, slides and bends, hammer-ons and pull-offs, palm muting, muffled strings, and arpeggios are triggered by special strumming keys. Strum Electric also ships with a MIDI loops library that provides rhythmic figures, strumming patterns, and chord progressions in various musical styles.
Strum Electric GS-1 is available now at a retail price of $229. Strum Electric GS-1 runs on both Mac OS X and Windows, as a stand-alone application, as well as in host sequencers supporting VST, Audio Units, and RTAS formats.
