Applied Acoustics Systems (AAS) has announced the availability of the updated virtual guitar instrument, Strum GS-2.
Strum GS-2 reproduces the sound of acoustic guitars as well as the playing techniques of a guitar player, which, developers say, makes “producing realistic guitar tracks very straightforward.”
As we mentioned in an earlier story, Strum GS-2 is a major redesign of its predecessor. In addition to the synthesis and strumming engines that have been completely revamped, Strum GS-2 ships with a new streamlined interface, a new equalizer and compressor module, a new multi-effects processor, native 64-bit operation on Mac OS X and Windows, and much more. Strum GS-2 comes with an all-new factory library with quite a few nylon and steel acoustic guitars of various sizes, both in natural and production-ready configurations.
Pricing and Availability. Strum GS-2 is available now at an introductory price of $149 (reg $199) through April 30, 2015, via the Ilio webstore. Strum Acoustic GS-1 users who purchased Strum Acoustic GS-1 between February 27, 2015 and March 27, 2015, will receive a free upgrade to Strum GS-2.
