NAMM 2019: Blue Cat Audio Re-Guitar – Infinite guitar tones?
Unlimited guitar tones from a single guitar?
Blue Cat Audio has just announced their new Re-Guitar plugin. The aim is to allow guitarists to re-voice their guitar and get infinite guitar tones out of a single instrument.
Blue Cat Audio Re-Guitar
The new Blue Cat Audio Re-Guitar plugin can simulate many kinds of electric or acoustic guitar tones. Which means essentially with one single guitar, you could cover all the guitar tones you desire via software in your DAW of choice.
Blue Cat Audio state that there is no latency and so the playing experience should feel natural and just as you would expect. I have not had the opportunity to try this software out myself yet, but if it can do what it claims then this could be an amazing studio tool.
The interface seems logical enough and you can run it on either Mac or PC in your DAW. You can either enhance or modify existing guitar tone whilst playing or virtually switch guitars after recording!
It is certainly cheaper than buying new pickups or guitars every few days. I’m going to have to check this one out, as I think if it works I would use this a lot myself.
The software includes plenty of pickup choices such as virtual single coils, including single hot, vintage, modern, active, tele, neck+mid, bridge+mid, P90, P90J. Humbuckers include vintage, classic, ricky, modern, rails, bright, wide, wide(jazz), jazz box. Plus you get piezo, acoustic, hollow-bodied and various other useful settings to play with.
You also have a virtual Volume and Tone pot, plus brightness and gain settings too.
The software is available in the following formats Mac-AAX, Mac-AU, Mac-VST, Mac-VST3, Win-AAX, Win-VST, Win-VST3, Win x64-AAX, Win x64-VST, Win x64-VST3.
