News Vir2 Instruments Electri6ity

Vir2 Instruments has announced that, after more than three years of development, Electri6ity has been released.

Electri6ity is a Kontakt Player-based virtual instrument containing what Vir2 describes as “an advanced, detailed, and versatile collection of electric guitars.” It contains eight famous aguitar tones from the history of the instrument: the Strat, Tele, P90, Les Paul, Rickenbacker, Danelectro Lipstick, ES335, and L4.

According to Vir2, more than 24,000 24-bit samples were taken of each guitar. Three pickup options (front, rear, and mixed) are available on every guitar. The large amount of samples is designed to allow you to play every articulation on every fret of every string for an authentic guitar sound. Downstrokes, upstrokes, seamless velocity layers, ghost notes, mutes, flageoletts, hammer-ons, pulloffs, slides, releases, and FX…

The company also says Electri6ity also utilizes advanced scripting, including the Articulation Morphing Technology (A.M.T.) and Velocity Morphing Technology (V.M.T.) allowing for the morphing from dead mute to sustain or from soft to loud. Advanced string and fretboard positioning is performed by artificial intelligence which is designed to adapt to your playing.

All samples in Electri6ity are recorded as a direct input from the guitar. You can use Electri6ity’s built-in multi-effects (phaser, flanger, chorus, reverb, and delay), Screamer module, and amp simulation (British, Classic, Clean, Jazz, Metal, Modern, and Rock), or use your own guitar amps or simulators for more possibilities.

Pricing & Availability
Electri6ity has an MSRP of $399.95. It is powered by the Kontakt engine and so is available for Windows and Mac OS X and is compatible with VST, Audio Unit and RTAS (Pro Tools 7 & 8) plug-in formats, allowing it to work within major sequencers, in addition to standalone use.
