[Musikmesse] Rob Papen RG
At Musikmesse, Rob Papen has announced RG, a brand new groove plug-in that is designed to be far more than just a "virtual Rhythm Guitar player".
According to Rob papen, by using the RG onboard sequencer it is possible to create classic Rhythm Guitar grooves, but beyond that you can use the synthesizer features and effects to make guitar grooves. To play the grooves RG is using a keyboard layout of "major chords" and "minor chords", each with two sequence patterns (A or B) option. Hit a single note in the major keyboard range or minor keyboard range and the groove plays.
The sound sets are clean sampled guitars, which gives you freedom and flexibility when using the synthesizer features and effects of RG.
Guitar types included:
- The classic Fender Stratocaster electric guitar.
- A 8th note groove type Steel String acoustic guitar.
- A 16th note groove type Steel String acoustic guitar.
The synthesizer parts of RG include a classic analog modelled synthesizer filter, LFO, envelopes and modulation section. The effect section can be built up by using up to 3 effects at a time. Included are MIDI time-based delays, chorus and also speaker simulators, phaser, flanger and more.
RG is expected to be released Spring 2008. Pricing and formats have not been announced but we assume Windows and Mac OS X VST and AU.
