Strum GS-2

Strum GS-2 is a plug-in for the production of guitar tracks. It includes a huge collection of acoustic and electric guitars, automatic chord recognition, sophisticated chord voicing, integrated strumming and picking action, MIDI riff library, amplifier and effects.

New from Strum Acoustic/Electric GS-1:

  • Acoustic and electric—The acoustic and electric guitars are included in a single plug-in.
  • Guitar library—A factory library with a huge collection of production-ready acoustic and electric guitars.
  • MIDI loop library—An extensive set of strumming patterns in MIDI loop packs covering different techniques and musical styles.
  • Modeling—A string module, fine pick/finger interaction, integrated coupling at the bridge, and precise body response for a super rich and natural tone.
  • Keyboard mode—The Keyboard mode lets you play lead lines and your own voicings.
  • Loop mode—The Loop mode gives you direct access to elaborate rhythm figures—which you can pick from a large collection of MIDI loops covering many musical styles—to supplement your chord progressions.
  • Strumming engine—Strumming engine for expressive and natural strumming.
  • Compressor and equalizer—These are perfect to add punch and definition to your sound, letting you cut through any dense mix or stage.

  • Limiter—The output limiter protects your ears and monitors during experimentation with the synth's parameters while providing a maximum of distortion-free dynamics.

  • Streamlined interface that divides Strum GS-2 into three panels: Play presents shortcuts to the performance and effect parameters including bypass switches for quick edits; Edit lets you tweak and create your sound; while FX supplies equalizer, compressor, multi-effect, and reverb processors for a final sheen.

  • Bank and program manager—Strum GS-2's manager allows simple and efficient organization, backup, and sharing of your sounds.

  • Strum GS-2 runs in native 64-bit on Mac OS X and Windows making it compatible with the latest sequencers.

Strum GS-2
Reviewed By krofork

Absolutely gorgeous sound for Unobtanium guitar with Mithril strings, played by Cyborg from Alpha-Centauri. It has strings, it can be strummed, amplified but it does not sound like something you hear on stage, or near campfire.

Background for my opinion: I'm not a guitar player - only keys. My main music interests: electronic/edm/experimental/hybrid.

I tried to choose my first guitar VI to buy. Of course I wanted to find "most of the most" guitar: realistic, simple and powerful...and inexpensive :) I trialed couple of them: MusicLab, Amplesound...Absolute fantastic edge of technology, but all of them seemed to me like sample archive with several knobs - you can build a music with it, but it is not VI for playing with keys. Okay, okay - it is not rocket science - I got some results with keyboard, but just did not like workflow. Then, I tried AAS Strum GS-2: "Oh, that is not guitar...and this is guitar..and..woah! i'm playing guitar!". One, two... and I just got music sketch and experiment with a result. Tons of sound presets and built-in rhythmic patterns, but you can just strum with keyboard. Or tweak sound in a way you never thought it was tweakable. "Do I really need 100% authentic super guitar sound?"

Pros: Playable fantastic strumming engine, Playground for guitar sound experiments, Built in patterns and FX, Quite realistic as electric rhythm guitar (and fast).

Cons: Not so easy, fast and plausible as acoustic guitar or lead guitar, No scratches/squeaks/slaps.

Forget about cons if you can consider this VI not as guitar, but "guitar-like synth", or "sketching/experimental instrument"
