Applied Acoustics announce Strum Acoustic GS-1

Strum Acoustic GS-1 is an acoustic guitar software synthesizer based on the latest AAS physical modeling technology. Strum provides an impressive collection of steel and nylon acoustic guitars and includes elaborate voicing and strumming modules for the realistic reproduction of a guitarist’s playing techniques. Chords played on the keyboard are automatically voiced for the guitar while strumming and picking actions are reproduced by an auto-strum function, special strumming keys, or MIDI loops. EQ, multi- effect, and reverb modules complete the package.

“Strum is the keyboardist’s perfect solution for creating great sounding acoustic guitar tracks,” said Marc-Pierre Verge, CEO of AAS, “Our physical modeling approach not only allows one to find the just-right sound but also to easily and efficiently reproduce on a keyboard, a wide range of left and right hand playing techniques of guitar players.”

Pricing and Availability
Strum Acoustic GS-1 will be available before the end of the first quarter of 2008 at a suggested retail price of US$229. Strum Acoustics GS-1 runs on both Mac OS X and Windows as a standalone application as well as in host sequencers supporting the VST, Audio Units, and RTAS plug-in formats.
