Instrument Ample Guitar M 2 lite

Recommended Posts

I downloaded a virtual instrument Ample Guitar m 2 lite.  There are lots of options and different screens.  Is there any place that can explain what the different options do or do I have to experiment with them all and figure them out myself.

Thanks

The manual is at http://amplesound.net/en/Main_Panel_Manual-AGM.pdf.

A good keyswitch summary is at http://amplesound.net/dl0822/ds/Keyswitches(Helmut)v1.6.zip. it needs a slight update but is still very useful. I have it available on my desk ALL the time.

But I found it best to study the MIDI demos at http://amplesound.net/en/download.asp.

Please note that the free Lite versions have quite a few limitations. They are only meant for you to get a feel for the sounds (which are great) and GUI (which also is good). As a big user (and fanboy) and picky guitar player (nyuk, nyuk, nyuk 😁) , I can tell you I have been able to do everything I've needed to with Ample Sound instruments. I highly recommend them.

Thank you for the links!  After looking I couldn't find them myself.

hello and thanks. Anyway you could post some samples of what you have done with the instrument other than picking? I have used it to strengthen a guitar performance by a client but would like to hear what others have done.

All 3 of the pieces I mention here used Ample Sound for guitar. Two are solo finger-style pieces while the other is a folk/bluegrass ensemble (which uses Ample Sound's banjo as well). I often will play and record a piece live. But I don't have a good tracking space (dogs barking, neighbors doing yardwork,  A/C turning on/off, etc), so I'll use Melodyne to convert my playing to MIDI. It keeps the timing and dynamics but loses fret positions, hammer-on's, pull-off's, slides, vibrato, etc. I use Ample Sound for my MIDI guitar and manually add all those fret positions and articulations back in. It seems to be a good compromise that is working well for me.
