Strum Electric GS-1 by Applied Audio Systems is a fantastic virtual electric guitar plugin. It's light on CPU and heavy on clarity, quality, and sound. There are no looped samples used, which makes this even easier on resources. AAS is the world's leader in creating physical modeling audio plugins, and Strum Electric does not disappoint. It's clean when it needs to be clean, and it really shines when processed. In performance, Strum is dynamic, powerful, and not hindered by overly complex velocity key-switches. It features up and down strokes, slides, beds, palm-muting, various chord positions, (open, movable, power). I was pleasantly surprised to find a variety of pickups (humbucker and single coil), cabinets, speakers, and effects (chorus, flange, vibrato, tremolo, wah-wah, etc.). What I like most about Strum Electric is how natural and authentic it sounds. The preset library has just about everything I need, and with a little tweaking, just about any tone is possible. It's capable of individual string editing, but I haven't gotten that deep into it to comment. There are also pre-made MIDI loops to mess around with. I usually don't use pre-made loops, but some of these are really inspiring and could easily be sculpted into something original. Sonically, it's wonderful and visually, it's clean and inspiring. I love the GUI. I give Strum Electric GS-1 two thumbs up. I'd give three if I had three!
