Azuma's review

Steinberg Virtual Guitarist
The program works on any platform either Windows XP, Windows Seven or MAC OS , so compatibility issues isn't present

The manual included with the program is great , Steinberg as usual made a great book explaining the main functions and how this certain vst works.

The general configuration and setup is simple , no problems occurred , no error found , everything went great.

The typical functions are easy to spot trough a certain guitar interface which has a lot of options to choose from.


The software works good in this configuration , everything is well settled without any type of misunderstandings.

The gear and software are very stable and works very good.

I'm getting very good performances in emulating a real electric or acoustic guitar that sounds as similar as a real one.

I've been using Virtual Guitarist from Steinberg for about one year.


What I like most about Steinberg Virtual Guitarist is that you can practically emulate a real guitar, this is one of the vest vst out there that can replicate the sound , the strum , the resonance of a real guitar , and besides that you can also get a very powerful sense of humanization , you can build certain rhythms effects , different textures , smacks , legato and stoccatto notes , also some great trills with different amount of velocity and duration.

What I also like about this certain product is that it is build around real samples of real guitar, so that way you avoid some automatic robotic sounds which you would get from a lot of guitar vst.

Precision and quality of the sound is very good , but I still think there's more to improve , that way I will rate it 9/10.

I've tried several models of guitar vst , this is one the most powerful alongside real guitar from Music Lab

Mad Max's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Very old, very functional!"

Steinberg Virtual Guitarist
A quarter of an hour to install (with updates and it rolls)!
Acceptance of the plug in Cubase after opening it!

Booklet provided with full explanation of many "virtual guitar" included in the many variations that complement the interface and some commands, automated midi!

Manual not really that useful to have touched the plugs; just used for well into his head what guitar does what with what types of guitars!


While the guitars are few, but there at just the right amount to make up with riffs that give the rhythm that have research, without taking the head to find the ones that ring!

The very few orders of two panels present in the interface of the plug itself, provide the desired game, simply by turning the knobs!

Types of agreements with display (Majeur/mineur/7ème/diminué ...)!
Latch mode (release or holding a note / chord while listening to / changes made)!
Long chords (in addition to simply an expression pedal / sustain)!

Fill (to the grooves of the plug detection)

Doubling (in a control panel (dubbing tracks or guitars in attendance))!
Stereo Width (depth from stereo)!

Effects of complete sections (for a game closer)!
Complete automation of controls (including the panel global settings)!

Panel 2 (depending on the settings made in his personal config or not to change anything if it suits your style)!

References agreements included in the manual, and all agreements that VG may propose as worn!


A plug that I still love despite his many years of references, which, to sue Steinberg pave the way for the better when the virtual does not have to guitarists brought the fingers!

If it all over again, I rachèterais!

Sébu.son's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Steinberg Virtual Guitarist
Installation is no problem, Because it's a bit long to give 1.6 gigabytes, but worth it ...
For those who use VST instruments in Sonar, for example, there is the very latest version of directiXer this address: Previous versions do not work with Virtual Guitarist!
I have not seen a manual install, but once the software is so intuitive that there was no point ...


Better to have a max of RAM to run the machine, and a processor worthy of 2000 (see 2002!), Drops the atari riri is not for you this thing the !
I do not work with the natural environment of VG, know Cubase, but thanks DirectiXer, no problem in Sonar, so I guess if j'tais Steinberg quip!
EVERYTHING is super stable, no problem ... Wait, I'll tell you about the sound reproduction, just ...


I use it recently and I still can not ... It is monstrous! A chord in your squenceur twelve o'clock, put VG loop on top, and you'll hear the guitar parts more bluffing ever heard, both rhythmically harmonic, and the sound is monstrous!
You can add effects once the groove built such a rverb, and you really feel the scratch just to make his power in the pice of cot!
All sounds are jous live, it's real guitar midi driver, there's nothing to program three times, the software in the genre, unbeatable! This stuff is a gn operator of riffs and grooves, get out your old file, for example south of Lou Reed's "Walk on the wild side" and fun to replay the guitar by VG: it's as if you c'tait, only better!
Conclusion: you can not not like this software, and yet I dtest Steinberg, I always plant with Cubase, but It! C the top ...

Bopa's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Steinberg Virtual Guitarist
No problem with installation on Windows 2000.
The installation is logically long as each CD is full of good sounds.
The configuration of each guitar is very simple: do not waste time reading the record back and forth before they get out a sound: Everything is clearly explained ... Except perhaps the use of channel 16 is left out altogether (some lines on the manual while the use, in the words deSteinberg seems promising).
If anyone has an info ...


Coupled with Cubase 5 VST 32, Virtual Guitarist is perfectly stable ...
I use a KA7 Athlon 100 with 133 chipset VIA - about 900 MB of RAM, all operated by a sblast Live SPDIF.
No blocking.

Since December 2004: works very well also on a Pentium 4 2.66 Ghz.


Produces relatively expensive but very nice to use, good rhythm, beautiful acoustic guitars, easy to use: just what I expected.
