I'm very excited by this, but one question: the strummer page looks different than it used to be in earlier Ample guitar instruments (where, wholly apart from automated patterns, you could assign chords to keys to play with the left hand and manually play patterns or individual strings with the right). Is that still possible with this new version?

Thanks for the updates!

I think I will skip the Vintage Cherry. The Les Paul can get me into the same territory.
If only it was an SG Special... P90 pickups would have been nice for a change.

Nice, thanks for the updates! I love the Gibson SG models. Should work great in combo with TC and SH.

Edit: just grabbed the model, can't wait to download and try it out.

Hi, Amplesound writes concerning vintage cherry "Enhance grainy of attack". Can somebody tell me what that means? Please. What does this do and where is the knob? For me all the virtual electric guitars still got too much machine gun. Please add an adjustible pick noise! Like you did with the release noise. Or did I missed something? Kind regards

It's not clearly explained, but having used it a couple of times, I believe it corresponds to pick attack sounds? Mainly, by how much, and the variation. The knobs are on the guitar body.

If it sounds too "machinegun" for you, you might want to adjust your MIDI velocities and timing between strummed notes.

Thanks for the immediate explanation! Mentioning the machine gun effect refers to guitar solos and I wonder why a stronger attack noise/scratch/prepick isnt much asked for over the years. The only library that has this great feature is archtop (kontakt lib) and it works really cool.

The Grainy knob changes the attack gain. the range is 1.0 - 3.0, 1.0 is default attack gain, 3.0 is 3x attack gain.

Random Grainy knob gives a humanization to attack gain. the range is 0 - 2.0, 0 is no humanization.
The final attack gain = Grainy +- Random

If you set Grainy to 2, Random to 1, the final attack gain = 1x to 3x

This is my setting as well. I find it a good balance.

Sustain, Hammer On & Pull Off, Legato Slide, Slide in & out, Palm Mute, Pop, Natural Harmonic, Pinch Harmonic 8 articulations, Legato at random length & pitch & poly.
So i assume Pinch Harmonic 8 articulations is right ?. can you tell please how this articulation are choose ?. I have AME and there is a switch, so i can choose 2 pinch modes. how does it work ob AGVC ?. can this pinch mode work with a keyswitch ?. the example songs sound really very good. i like such solos as in 1. song

Bought this today and it sounds great combined with Amplitube! Rendered this today featuring the VC with the first two guitar sounds featured in the track.

The pinch harmonic or Pop could be triggered with velocity 127.

The button in below image switches Pinch or Pop
