Virtual Guitar Feedback...Possible???

How to do this, that and the other. Share, learn, teach. How did X do that? How can I sound like Y?

Using something like Music Labs or VIR2 or some other virtual guitar PLUS something like Guitar Rig, Amplitube, etc., is it possible to create guitar feedback?

Knowing what I know about feedback, my gut tells me no. But thought I'd ask in case somebody knows a trick I might not be aware of.

Thanks

Thanks but all of this seems to require a real guitar. I am using a virtual guitar so there is no physical guitar to stick near an amp or whatever. Is there something that will work with a virtual guitar and a virtual amp and no external speakers of any kind?

AcouFiend feedback simulation plug-in from Blue Cat works with VST -no real guitar/amp/cables/speaker required.

I second AcouFiend. I haven't actually run a real guitar through it yet, but it worked really well on guitar samples. Results depend on the particular amp sim and the settings on it, but overall I think it's great.

Takes a bit to get used to the controls, but once you figure out what they are, it works like a charm and sounds really good. Best part is that you don't have to do it live - you can automate the parameters after you've laid down a track.

Thanks. I will definitely look into it.

Ca 1985 Boss had a pedal doing fake feedback. So why not.

Also listen to some Jan Hammer shredding his keytar. He uses all kinds of synths. It's pure in his playing, not the synth or whatever.

Later came the feedback killer pedal :hihi:

If all else fails you could get a small guitar cabinet just to use for that purpose but it requires that and an electric guitar. I have seen producers do that when they have to track a guitar in another room than their cabinet is.
