NAMM 2019 Blue Cat Re-Guitar Plugin - infinite number of guitar tones out of a single instrument!

Unread post by Saul » Thu Jan 24, 2019 12:11 am

I came across this very interesting looking piece of software today called 'Re-Guitar' by Blue Cat Audio.

Here's the description:
Welcome to the world of "Re-Guitaring": enjoy an infinite number of guitar tones out of a single instrument!

With Re-Guitar, you can emulate many kinds of guitar tones (electric or acoustic), regardless of the guitar model used for recording: keep playing your own guitar and get all the sounds that you like, and more!

The built-in pickup simulator lets you emulate many types of electric guitar pickups without the need to modify your favorite instrument: choose from a selection of popular guitar pickups or create your own.

You can also dig and expand the body "in the box" to craft your own hollow body guitar tone thanks to the body simulator.

The plug-in includes a selection of acoustic guitar simulations, and you can craft your own too.

In addition to the brightness and gain adjustements, the virtual tone and volume pots let you tweak the tone in details. They can even be automated to follow the performance.

If you do not play guitar but are producing music with recorded guitars, you will enjoy "re-guitaring" too: you can now "fix it in the mix" and virtually switch guitars after recording!

This plug-in has not been released yet - it is expected to be available around Q2 201
Looks like the sort of software I would be interested in. Wonder what everyone else thinks?

I guess if you are already committed to digital sound reproduction this would be OK. Somehow I can't believe it's any kind of substitute for wood and wire.
It would take up way less space than a whole bunch of guitars but where's the fun in that?

Are they trying to tell us one guitar is enough? :hand: :naughty:
Blasphemy :lol:
Remember seeing review of a pedal doing similar job and good few called it an expensive eq. Looks like this software is eq and modulation. Still would like to try it but seriously one guitar? Hope my better half never sees this :pray:

Well personally I would never just have ONE guitar but I would definitely like to give the software a try.

Have not been impressed with any guitar modelling yet especially when talking about acoustic modelling. No one seems to be able to crack it properly.
