    E-guitar playing effects from the keyboard

    The interface lets me introduce nuances into my synth-generated guitar tracks otherwise not achievable from a keyboard. It seems most effective for funk-style or other syncopated playing styles. For straight-out open strumming, it takes more tweaking of parameters than I would like to achieve similar realism, but it still beats just trying to mimic it on a keyboard. My only real criticism is that if you're unfamiliar with fretboard fingering (as I am), finding the right combination of keys to correspond to the chord you want is not always intuitive if going for bar chords or chords high up the fretboard. But it is worth the extra "hunting around" on the keyboard to achieve the results. Also, the interface makes havoc for music-notation software or MIDI file transfers unless the receiving DAW also has the GS-1 plug-in. Nevertheless, good job, AAS!
