Virtual Guitar Like Never Before!

You're working on a piece of music that needs a guitar line, and everything is coming together except for one minor problem: it's the middle of the night and there's no guitar player you can turn to. You could try to play it yourself, but your guitar chops aren't really up to it, or you use a virtual instrument. Sweetwater Sales Engineers know that fake guitar sounds playing keyboard-style chords don't fool anyone. That's why you need Vir2's Electri6ity, the guitar software instrument that gives you the musical results you need without forcing you the leave the comfort of your keyboard.

Vir2 Electri6ity Guitar Software Instrument Plug-in at a Glance:
  • Translates your keyboard playing into guitar-appropriate chords and articulations
  • Amazingly advanced algorithms that you can completely ignore
  • Eight iconic guitar types are ready to play
Translates your keyboard playing into guitar-appropriate chords and articulations

Utilizing the incredible power of Native Instruments's Kontakt engine, Electri6ity lets you play your keyboard as you normally would, and intelligently adapts to your playing style. As you play, Electri6ity provides appropriate chord voicings, articulations, and subtle nuances, all with unprecedented realism. You've never played a virtual instrument guitar like this - prepare to be totally blown away!

Amazingly advanced algorithms that you can completely ignore

How does it work? We could tell you that each of Electri6ity's eight awesome guitar models use over 24,000 individual 24-bit samples, how these samples contain separate articulations for each fret of each string, covering downstrokes, upstrokes, ghost notes, mute, harmonics, hammer-ons, pull-offs, slide, seamless velocity layers, and on and on - but that would just get confusing. After all, what good are all of these samples if you have to spend more time programming the instrument than playing it? No, the really cool things about Electri6ity are it's super-intelligent Articulation Morphing Technology and Velocity Morphing Technology. These scripting engines, combined with Electri6ity's instant recognition of 2,000 chord fingerings, adapt to your playing style (with only minimal parameter tweaking) to produce absolutely authentic sounding guitar.

Eight iconic guitar types are ready to play

Vir2 recorded each of Electri6ity's samples directly to give you full control over your tone. That means you get complete access to eight different guitars, including a Strat, a Tele, a P90-based model, a Les Paul, and more, as well as an impressive collection of stompbox effects and killer guitar amps. Plus, you get three pickup positions for each guitar. That means that Electri6ity give you all the control you need to get the guitar sound and performance you want, without having to obsess over nuances. And since Electri6ity is powered by the powerful Native Instruments Kontakt engine, it's compatible with VST, AudioUnit, and RTAS (Pro Tools 7 & 8) plug-in formats, as well as a standalone mode that's great for playing live.

I'll go with the problems 1st. You really should have 8 megs memory, an 88 note keyboard, an outboard fx unit (amplitube ,ect.)a daw and a pretty fast computer. It has trashed fl studio and sampletank when installing. (have backup files ready and install fl studio after electi6ity) . It has the most disgusting vibrato on planet earth (set slow/fade,max 150%, speed and strength zero,to fix) funky release (setting to cc, pick noise to fix) and chucka-chucka startup (change velocity control to cc to fix.) Now, prepare to spend hours being blown away by this thing. The fx aren't really any good but the 8 different guitars are absolutely stunning. Your choice clean or amped samples, an eq section that is out of this world and an amp section that puts an excellent distortion to things. If you are looking for a guitar vst look no furhter. For the first time i can actually hear the uniqueness of the guitars and the way a guitar is SUPPOSED to react with amplitube. It sounds like a whole different machine. Awesome!!!!!!!!

Love it

I've got lots of vital instruments that contain guitar sounds. None have impressed me and have never used a single on on a recording. Electi6ity, however, it quite impressive. I've only had it a short time and have yet to prefect all it's nuances, but I've put down a few lead guitar parts and indistinghushable from the real thing. I'm planning on buying Acoui6ity next.

So believable, it's unbelievable !

I've been playing "fake guitar" since before the Dead Sea even got sick, and this is what I've been waiting for. I'm a keyboardist (duh), but my music has always been built around guitar sounds and I suck at guitar so I always wrote with keyboard sounds and added pseudo guitar to fill things out. With this software, I find myself writing with these ultra-realistic guitar sounds and filling things out with keyboards, which is what my songs were meant to be all along. Even if you haven't been playing fake guitar for 20+ years, this software will change the way you make music.

Excellent Virtual Guitar!

This program really is incredible. Pretty easy to use and sounds great! I play a little guitar, but really rely on this program to lay down guitar tracks. A real guitarist is always better, but not always around.You will not be disappointed. Try it!
