Amp simulators and Effects
SC Electric Guitar 2 has built-in guitar amplifier simulators and effects with more than 100 inspiring presets. You can make your own guitar sound so it suits the music genre you’re working with by using them. You can also turn off them and use your favorite amplifier simulator for further tonal variations.
The SPI automatically selects a proper string / fret position depending on the situation. You can also change the string manually by key switches. The Fretboard Monitor visualizes the current fret position / playing technique you are playing
All the pick-up positions can be reproduced
We modified the Stratocaster® so we can record the three direct signals from the neck, middle, and bridge pick-up simultaneously via separate output jacks. Each sound of the pick-up microphones was perfectly sampled and all the five pick-up positions can be reproduced.
SC Electric Guitar 2 reproduces even the switching noise of the pickup selector!
Real sampled chords
The extensive number of the ‘real’ chord samples makes your guitar tracks very convincing. (2-string dyad chords, octave, major, minor, 7th, m7, maj7, add9, sus4, 9th, #9th, m9, maj9, dim7, aug, open / low chords, etc.) SC Electric Guitar 2 includes the huge number of ‘real’ recorded (in other words, ‘pre-recorded’ or ‘pre-played’) chord samples. You can instantly access the various types of guitar chords. Prominy’s guitar libraries are the only ones that include such a huge number of the real chord samples.
Real-sounding emulated chords
Though SC Electric Guitar 2 already includes a huge number of real chord samples, more chords (and more chord shape variations per each chord) are available with the emulated chords. Our unique recording and programming make it possible for you to get a realistic chord sound that is close to a real sampled chord sound, even if you are playing emulated chords.
User Chord Editor enables you to build your own chord shapes and make any chords you like. Each string is fully customizable and you can configure how the string is played using the User Chord Editor. (For example, normal sustain or mute or picking noise, always play open string regardless the fret position, strum the string or not, root string, etc.)
Realtime Legato Slide / Realtime Hammer-on & Pull-off
With SC2’s Realtime Legato Slide feature using ‘real’ legato samples, you are able to get perfectly real expressions of the human finger’s legato slide that cannot be reproduced with a slide emulation by changing pitch. Hammer-on & Pull-off samples are real recorded samples as well. Realtime Legato Slide is available with all the instruments including chord instruments except FX instruments.Realtime Hammer-on&Pull-off is available with single note instruments.
‘Cricket’ is a guitar playing technique that Metal / Rock guitarists frequently use on solos. By hitting the whammy bar, the tremolo unit vibrates very fast and it produces a very cool ‘crying’ sound like a cricket (insect)
In actual guitar performance, you get feedback sound when a heavily distorted tone is played in front of (or a certain position from) the amplifier. SC2 reproduces the feedback sound. The pitch and fade time of feedback can be changed
Customizable Strum Key
As well as the User Chord Editor, you can configure how each string is played when you hit the Strum Keys and the Normal Key.
Arpeggio Key is a dedicated key for each string. When a chord instrument is selected, each note of the chord is automatically assigned to the Arpeggio Key for the string so you can play arpeggio with the keys.
*This is not a so-called ‘Arpeggiator’. This is a feature that enables you to play a certain note (string) of the chord individually.
Auto Stroke Detection
With the SPI’s Auto Stroke Detection feature, SPI automatically detects the current beat position and identify proper stroke direction (down or up). There are several stroke detection modes and you can also control stroke direction manually.
‘Double-Tracking’ is a technique that is frequently used in recording guitar tracks. It gives the guitar track a nice, wide-spread stereo images and thickness. With SC Electric Guitar 2 SPI, you can reproduce it very easily just by loading the Double Track multi. No identical samples are played simultaneously in both channels.
Intelligent Instrument Key Switch with chord recognition
You can instantly select an instrument (articulation) using the Instrument Select Key Switches. All the instruments can be assigned to any key switches and you can create your own key switch mapping. The key switches have a chord recognition feature that enables you to select a chord instrument by not only hitting a key that the chord is assigned, but also by hitting the chord notes in the key switch range. In other words, you don’t need to memorize the key switches for the chord instruments. Just hold the chord notes in the key switch range, and you are ready to play the chord.
Low note samples included
SC Electric Guitar 2 includes the lower note samples (low C – low D#) and is suitable for a wide range of musical genres.
Direct signals from the guitar
You can make your own guitar sound so it suits the music genre you’re working with by using the built-in amp simulator or your own favorite amplifier simulator.
