Sound Magic has announced availability of Electric Guitar J, its latest hybrid modelling virtual instrument. It features a 1962 Fender Jaguar guitar and is available for Mac (AU 32-/64-bit, VST 32-/64-bit) and Windows (VST 32-/64-bit). Here's the details in their own words...
Electric Guitar J features Fender's famous Jaguar guitar that gains its reputation by innovative, versatile and great-sounding. One critical advantage that Jaguar has is its maximum versatile sound. Jaguar can sound decent in any music genres/styles. While other guitars often sound really good at one specific music style, but cannot keep the same level performance in other genres.
Deeply sampled over 16GB uncompressed contents, over 6,700 samples, with multi velocity layers and round robin samples, Electric Guitar J aims at precisely reproducing the versatile electric guitar sound of Jaguar. To achieve the best possible sound, we are not only choosing a 1962 Jaguar guitar which is considered to be the original jaguar sound, but also make sure it is in perfect condition by checking every part of it (bridge and so on). It took our team several months to prepare the sample recording.
Electric Guitar J covers rhythm and lead guitar playing -- which includes Sound Magic's powerful and easy to use, chord strumming functionality. The strumming system automates divide chords into special groups and users can use keyswitch them or articulation to quickly select them on the fly. What's more, we also sampled as much as techniques available on this guitar, including Mute, Staccato, Sustain, Vibrato, Slides, Bend, Falls, Scrapes,Screams, Hammer On, Pull Off and noises.
Collaborate with Hotone; now we can offer the full version of VStomp effect system on Electric Guitar J. VStomp is based on Hotone's proprietary CDCM system, VStomp delivers organic, studio-grade sound quality and the exact character of legendary amplifiers. Unlike mainstream modeling methods based on the characteristics of a certain "state" of the circuitry, which just "comes close" to the modeled sound, VStomp employs a complex system based on dynamic feature modeling. In this matrix, every single circuit component is alive and performs like its original.
VStomp has over 26 amps and 20 cabs waiting for you to use. The famous brands in VStomp including Marshell, Fender, Ampeg, Carvin, Mesa, Peavey, Roland, Orange and many more. Also it has multi effect/FX which could enables users to fudge a whole FX chain to get the unique sound.
