PlastikGuitar is a free VST/AU instrument plugin (ROMpler) for DAWs and other plugin host software running on Windows and macOS.
It is a small guitar instrument based on samples captured by Quartertone from a Yamaha Eterna classical acoustic guitar. During the recording session, he used a CAD E100 microphone.
PlastikGuitar comes with two presets: Finger-Plucked which contains finger-plucked note performances and Harmonics, with string harmonics played at the 4th, 5th, 7th, and 12th frets on each string of the instrument. Both presets have 5 velocity layers per sampled note.
The GUI is intuitive with controls such as tremolo with speed and depth, attack/release envelope, lowpass/highpass filter, gain, pan, and room reverb.
Thanks to its raw form, PlastikGuitar alongside various effects can be used in genres such as EDM, Pop, Hip Hop, Trap, or House for both rhythms and melodies. With harmonics, you can create psychedelic melodies or lush pads. We think there’s a lot of room for creativity.
PlastikGuitar is available in VST/VST3 Windows and VST/VST3/AU macOS. It is compatible with the latest versions, also it is natively compatible with M1 chips.
