YouTube Preview Image

macProVideo.com, an Online Education Site, today introduced a new guitar plugin, Phoenix Pro, that is ‘guaranteed to turn novice guitar players into rockstars’.

In partnership with Phoenix Digital Audio Teknologies of Germany, macProVideo.com’s team of in-house programers have created a revolutionary audio processor that can physically model the sound of top guitar pros like Eddie Van Halen, Jimi Hendrix, or BB King and apply them to any guitar recording, no matter the skill level of the original player.

Phoenix Pro is due for release Spring 2013 (more info in the video above) at around the $129 mark or higher (or perhaps lower).

Midi Guitar Jam (with Native Instruments FM8 and Ableton Live)

via WeakEndProductions:

I recently got Native Instruments FM8 software synth and I’ve been getting some good sounds for Midi Guitar with it. Using Ableton Live 6 I am able to load (and arm for recording) six instances of FM8. That way I can play the synth in a natural guitar-like manner. What I mean is that I can bend one string, sending a pitchbend message for one string (one midi channel) without that message bending the pitch of what’s happening on all the other strings. It seems to work rather well. I thought that it might be of interest to other midi guitarists.
