Virtual Bouzouki is a Greek bouzouki sample library that, with its realistic sound and its many functions, aims to "spread the Greek spirit around the world". Virtual Bouzouki is a Kontakt Player instrument based on advanced script programming and offers different playing styles and techniques.

One of the features which gives you a realistic playing experience is the fact that you can control which way the notes pass and which string is being used by using the modulation wheel.

The Virtual Bouzouki sample library loads all kinds of tremolos which you can change the speed of in real-time with the modulation wheel. The user can also trigger keyswitches to play either Polyphonic or Monophonic. Polyphonic is used when the player doesn't want any hammer on or pull offs. Monophonic uses hammer on and pull off up to a range of a major 3rd.

Another realistic feature is the way Virtual Bouzouki handles the plectrum stroke. A bouzouki-player chooses to play every other down and up. The Virtual Bouzouki is programmed to play only down when the user plays slow notes, but in fast playing it plays every other down and up. That way it avoids the 'machine-gun' sounding effect. Of course you can trigger 'plectrum down' if you want that feeling.

The Virtual Bouzouki includes different effects under the main menu called 'perform'. Here you can choose the hand position of the plectrum and the thickness of the plectrum. There is also eq, reverb, delay, compressor and a help menu for fast explanation of the keyswitch-positions.
