Electri6ity is an "epic electric guitar" virtual instrument containing "the most advanced, detailed, and versatile collection of electric guitars ever made in a virtual instrument".

Electri6ity contains eight of the most famous and distinguished guitar tones from the history of the instrument: the Strat, Tele, P90, Les Paul, Rickenbacker, Danelectro Lipstick, ES335, and L4. More than 24,000 24-bit samples were taken of each guitar. Three pickup options (front, rear, and mixed) are available on every guitar. This allows you to play every articulation on every fret of every string for an authentic guitar sound. Downstrokes, upstrokes, seamless velocity layers, ghost notes, mutes, flageoletts, hammer-ons, pulloffs, slides, releases, and FX.

Electri6ity also utilizes advanced scripting, including Articulation Morphing Technology (A.M.T.) and Velocity Morphing Technology (V.M.T.) allowing for the seamless morphing from dead mute to sustain or from soft to loud. Advanced string and fretboard positioning is performed by artificial intelligence which adapts to your playing. Play fluid lines in real time using the legato engine, play chords using the chord detection engine which understands almost 2000 different chords, easily double-track, do unison bends, strum, pick, trill, tremolo pick, slide... all of this is built into the Electri6ity engine and full editing control is given over each of these parameters.

All samples in Electri6ity are recorded clean - a direct input from the guitar. Use Electri6ity's built-in multi-effects (phaser, flanger, chorus, reverb, and delay), Screamer module, and amp simulation (British, Classic, Clean, Jazz, Metal, Modern, and Rock) to make the sound come alive, or use your own guitar amps or simulators to multiply the possibilities.

Electri6ity is powered by the Kontakt engine so it is compatible with VST, Audio Unit, and RTAS (Pro Tools 7 & 8) plug-in formats on Windows and Mac OS x allowing it to work seamlessly within any major sequencer, in addition to standalone use.

This Library, or Virtual Instrument, sounds completely realistic. It actually better than using a real guitar because of editing possibilities and it is much more quiet than using a real guitar.

There are amp and effects built in, but DI is also an option. I use this for a second guitar track and re-amp it when playing live, and nobody has ever suspected that it wasn't a real guitar.

Because of all of the "AI" involved and the incredible detailed scripting built into it, it is very much ready to use right out of the box.

I can not recommend this instrument highly enough.

Well, where to start. I've had this product for a couple of months now, and have barely scratched the surface of what it is capable of, but what I have achieved sounds amazing.

The collection of iconic/classic guitars have been sampled very well, in every articulation possible. Add to this the scripting that lets you play from fully damped to full sustain smoothly (using either velocity or mod wheel), the collection of varied and realistic release noises, etc. and you have a very capable product.

This is before you delve under the hood, where every parameter possible is editable. You want to miss the bottom string on up-strums? There's a setting for that. You want the body to resonate with the strings (very nice on the semi-acoustics)? There's a setting for that. You want to change the tuning? Well, you get the idea.

The only downside is that the learning curve is steep, but that's the price you have to pay for this level of flexibility in the product. The fact that one of the development team contributes and answers questions on the KVR forums helps with this, and he has personally helped me out with a "how do I get it to do this?" type question.

If only they had a version for bass and acoustic guitars, I'd dust of the credit card tomorrow without thinking twice about it...
