AGT is recorded on the Taylor 714 acoustic guitar, with 3892 dry samples and a total size of 5.00GB. Original samples have been recorded as 24-bit 44.1kHz stereo. Natural sustain and resonating sounds of the guitar are unadulterated. No looping samples.
The samples are categorized in two banks: Strum and Pick (AGM has Strum and Finger).
As with other Ample Guitar instruments, AGT features the following functionalities and techniques: Hammer On & Pull Off, Legato Slide up & down, Slide in Below & Slide out Downwards, Palm Mute, Natural Harmonic, Popping 9 guitar techniques, Legato at random length, pitch & poly. All techniques can be played in Legato mode, even when strumming.
By using real strumming samples with customized chord, rhythm and tempo, AGT Strummer combines the advantages of both sample-based and simulation strumming techniques with following features:
- Chord detection system supporting inversions - Optimized for keyboard players, every inversion of every chord is mapped to a different guitar position;
- 14 Strum notes + 28 playing modes for each chord;
- Strumming Legato with any techniques;
- Mute Depth;
- 4 humanization settings.
AGT follows rigorous logic to trigger fingering sounds automatically, and mix them into the resulting sounds. AGT simulates the resonating method of a physical acoustic guitar, by extracting the resonating signal out from a normal guitar sample, and then plays it back when users are playing AGT.
AGT provides 2 Stereo and 2 Mono sound modes natively, which simulates different retrieval of the sounds collected from the recording microphones. The microphone volumes and sound width are adjustable under lossless quality.
