Vir2 Instruments has announced Electri6ity, an "epic electric guitar" virtual instrument containing "the most advanced, detailed, and versatile collection of electric guitars ever made in a virtual instrument".
Electri6ity contains eight of the most famous and distinguished guitar tones from the history of the instrument: the Strat, Tele, P90, Les Paul, Rickenbacker, Danelectro Lipstick, ES335, and L4. More than 24,000 24-bit samples were taken of each guitar. Three pickup options (front, rear, and mixed) are available on every guitar. This allows 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.
Electri6ity also utilizes advanced scripting, including Articulation Morphing Technology (A.M.T.) and Velocity Morphing Technology (V.M.T.) allowing for the seamless morphing from dead mute to sustain or from soft to loud. Advanced string and fretboard positioning is performed by artificial intelligence which adapts to your playing. Play fluid lines in real time using the legato engine, play chords using the chord detection engine which understands almost 2000 different chords, easily double-track, do unison bends, strum, pick, trill, tremolo pick, slide... all of this is built into the Electri6ity engine and full editing control is given over each of these parameters.
All samples in Electri6ity are recorded clean - a direct input from the guitar. 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) to make the sound come alive, or use your own guitar amps or simulators to multiply the possibilities.
Electri6ity is powered by the Kontakt engine so it is compatible with VST, Audio Unit, and RTAS (Pro Tools 7 & 8) plug-in formats on Windows and Mac OS x allowing it to work seamlessly within any major sequencer, in addition to standalone use.
MSRP is $399.95 and it will be shipping Spring 2010.
