Applied Acoustics Systems Strum Electric GS-1
Applied Acoustics Systems has announced the release of Strum Electric GS-1, its new guitar track production plug-in for music producers and composers.
Strum Electric includes a collection of classic single coil- and humbucker-fitted guitars, a two-channel amplifier with spring reverb, a speaker cabinet, and effects all featured in a ready-made preset library. It also includes an elaborate voicing module which automatically voices chords played on the keyboard as a guitar player would on the fretboard, AAS says.
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 is also said to ship with a MIDI loops library which provides rhythmic figures, strumming patterns, and chord progressions in various musical styles.
Pricing and Availability
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 standalone application as well as in host sequencers supporting the VST, Audio Units, and RTAS plug-in formats.
