Vir2 Instruments Releases Electri6ity Virtual Guitar Plug-In For Mac & PC
Vir2 Instruments has released Electri6ity, an electric guitar virtual instrument for Mac OS X and Windows. Vir2, who spent more than three years of development, claims that Electri6ity contains “the most advanced, detailed, and versatile collection of electric guitars ever made in a virtual instrument.”
Electri6ity contains eight of the most famous and distinguished guitar tones from the history of the instrument. More than 24,000 24-bit samples were taken of each guitar. Three pickup options (front, rear, and mixed) are available on every guitar. An impressive amount of samples allow you to play every articulation on every fret of every string for an absolutely authentic guitar sound. Downstrokes, upstrokes, seamless velocity layers, ghost notes, mutes, harmonics, hammer-ons, pulloffs, slides, releases, and FX…the sky is the limit with Electri6ity.
Electri6ity also utilizes advanced scripting, including the Articulation Morphing Technology (A.M.T.) and Velocity Morphing Technology (V.M.T.), allowing for the seamless morphing from dead mute to sustain or from soft to loud. Advanced string and fretboard positioning is performed by artificial intelligence which adapts to your playing. Play fluid lines in real time using the legato engine, play chords using the chord detection engine which understands almost two thousand different chords, easily double-track, do unison bends, strum, pick, trill, tremolo pick, slide…all of this is built into the Electri6ity engine and full editing control is given over each of these parameters.
Use Electri6ity’s built-in multieffects (phaser, flanger, chorus, reverb, and delay), Screamer module, and amp simulation (British, Classic, Clean, Jazz, Metal, Modern, and Rock) to make the sound come alive, or use your own guitar amps or simulators to multiply the possibilities.
Vir2 Instruments’ Electri6ity costs $399.95 and can be powered by Native’s Kontakt engine, or as a standalone plug-in in the VST, AudioUnit, and RTAS (Pro Tools 7 and 8) flavors. More information on Vir2 Instruments Electri6ity.
