So on audiomidi com there is a crazy sale for 20 bucks for this thing right now. I am a guitar player. To add to it I hate products that replace a real person.
with all of that said let me tell you this thing KICKS ASS it sounds amazing. and works really well. its kinda a thing that I hate and love about it jsut the MIDI that comes with it is pretty cool.
now some of the presets are not bad some are great and some are crap. one thing is this is kind of hard to figure out at first. after about 20 minuets I had this thing down though. as far as the sound of effects on em its pretty okay the reverbs and stuff are okay but i like the stuff i already have much better.
I think what really kicks ass is when you set this baby to one of the DI presets and tweak it then load up a amp sim you get such a good sound. and at times yes it sounds like a real guitar.
I notice that the strumming is amazing up down fast slow a weird combo of em it does em just fine. Also the choking on the strings and palm mutes sound great. I also thing the vibrato and hammer on parts are pretty good to.
Overall I say it sounds great works great and actually does what it says it does.
the only things i really find is that its hard to get it right when you first get it. and the effects that it comes with are not the best but still pretty decent.
okay the morning after i wrote the review i noticed something.
To be honest the only thing I can say is I get this bug that I'm sure will be fixed soon where in reaper when I switch it to strum and then press play I get a crash every time that is the only reason it does not get a higher score overall it turned it from something that i think would be like a 9.5 to about a 7.5. the sound and tonal quality is soo good though that i think a 7 is just unfair for one bug. but it can not give it a 10 because with that bug I am left with part of the product unavailable to me
okay so I got a great quick response from support and they gave me a hotfix to fix the problem and now everything works. just adding great customer service
