Blue Cat Audio has announced Blue Cat's Re-Guitar, a new guitar tone modeling plug-in capable of emulating an infinite number of guitar tones out of a single instrument.
Re-Guitar can simulate many kinds of guitar tones (electric or acoustic), regardless of the guitar model used for recording. It includes a pickup simulator that emulates many models of renowned electric guitar pickups and lets you create you own. The plug-in also includes a selection of acoustic guitar simulations, and you can craft your own too.
It is also possible to emulate hollow body guitars and adjust the desired thickness of the body. In addition to brightness and gain adjustments, the plug-in provides virtual tone and volume pots to tweak the tone in details.
"Re-guitaring" can be used to enhance or completely modify the guitar tone while playing your own instrument, or to virtually switch guitars after recording - just like we already do with guitar amp simulations.
Blue Cat's Re-Guitar will be demoed at the Winter NAMM Show this week on booth #16300, and the release is expected around Q2 2019.
The plug-in will be included as a free update inside Blue Cat's Axiom, the company's multi effects processor for guitar and bass, and will also be available for purchase separately as an independent plug-in. Axiom is available for purchase with 25% off until the end of the NAMM show.
