In this guitar software, the guitar player has been transformed into a step-sequencer system that allows control over playing styles, chord progressions and song structures. Guitarist can also be played live.Users can choose from factory chords or create their own on the fingerboard. The Action section allows users to tweak the sequence in real time and apply time-stretch, looper or other effects.
On 16 steps, users can determine if a chord is triggered, which strings are played and if the strum goes up- or downward. The playing style (normal, dead, damped) can be determined and the strum speed can be made slower or a double strum cam be triggered. Slides,bends, vibratos and portamentos can be made and strings can be stopped at any time. Users can create chord progresions from the factory chords or self-made chords. Each step of the
chord sequencer can be repeated up to 16 times. Two amps are provided, as well as a direct out mode for a user's amp software.
Guitarist is available in September and comes as stand-alone and VST/AU plug-in for Mac and PC.
