ABOUT THE MIDI GUITAR SERIES

The recipient of multiple major awards, these newly created EastWest MIDI Guitar Instruments from producers Doug Rogers and Nick Phoenix, differ from other EastWest virtual instruments, which are optimised for keyboards. They have been specially programmed to take advantage of the complex and unique waveforms produced by a guitar’s vibrating strings. These five titles cover a wide range of musical styles and instrument families.

The EastWest production team, working closely with Fishman's software developers, optimised the instruments for guitar players. Pitch bends, whammy bar, dynamics, etc. all function as expected, and in fact provide a much more organic experience than using the instruments with a keyboard and mod wheel.

The tracking and latency is superb as you can see in the product videos EastWest produced. Even the sampled guitars are useful, you no longer have to take multiple guitars, acoustic guitars, etc. on the road, but still have access to a vast array of guitar sounds that can be switched with the TriplePlay FC-1 Floor Controller.

The other volumes offer sounds that allow you to produce any kind of music you desire, the collection offers every genre imaginable, even inspirational soundscapes and percussion.

 

The guitar has entered the 21st century with a palette of sounds that are the best available!

Press Quotes

"These sounds work with standard playing styles, responding dynamically, and producing an end result that - for guitarists - will have a much more natural feel than if they'd played it in on a keyboard." - MusicTech Magazine

"It’s great to see one of the bigger sample library developers taking the needs of MIDI Guitar players seriously. The five volumes of the EastWest MIDI Guitar Series integrate well with the impressive Fishman TriplePlay pickup." - Sound on Sound
