  1. Would love to hear some blues made with this synth. It`s easy to imitate the sound of distorted guitar… It sounds great though

  2. Argh! Really frustrating – so close in the tone, but still with annoying telltales.
    The attacks are too keyboard-y.

    Wonder if a Toontracks/EZdrummer solution would work: sample a bunch of attacks and play a different one each hit…

  3. Very appealing, as I could really use a better e-guitar emulator for those times when I am willing to “cheat” and make use of the great aroma. The tonal variety perks my ears up.
    However, the specs are too thin. Will it run on a Mac? Is that $#@! Kontakt Player consistent within the plug or will it time out as it does with so many other libraries? What kind of copy-protection do they employ? Such omissions make me skeptical and wary.
    As for the comment about the attacks being too revealing as keyboard-based, sheesh, if you are willing to use “fake” guitar for the sake of your piece, that’s a call to use it well more than a deal-breaker.
    I’ll have to see more. Anything that uses Kontakt Player comes with a burdensome demand to buy the full version. I have a sampler and am not willing to drop $400 for another I don’t need. I hate having to pass on things that are Kontakt-only, but they’re not the only game in town. I personally find NI clunky to deal with as a company and their libraries seem narrow when compared with things like Alchemy. They’d need a wider range of sound programmers and a less maddening registration process to win me back. Still, this presents as a capable plug, so I won’t dismiss it reflexively.
