Pianoteq is an award-winning virtual instrument which you can install on your computer (PC/Mac). It is available for Windows, macOS, and Linux, and will even run on some ARM-based boards such as the Raspberry Pi. It can be used both in standalone mode and as an instrument plug-in in VST, AAX, and AudioUnits hosts.
The nylon Classical Concert Guitar for Pianoteq introduces a new exciting category of physically modelled instruments, with emulated gestures and natural instrument noises for breathtaking realism. The instrument UI is designed so that you do not have to be a guitarist to use it. Various tweaked presets are offered, ranging from a 12-string acoustic guitar to a Greek bouzouki or even an electric guitar. You really need to hear it to believe it!
Virtual Bouzouki is a Greek bouzouki sample library that, with its realistic sound and its many functions, aims to "spread the Greek spirit around the world". Virtual Bouzouki is a Kontakt Player instrument based on advanced script programming and offers different playing styles and techniques.
Another realistic feature is the way Virtual Bouzouki handles the plectrum stroke. A bouzouki-player chooses to play every other down and up. The Virtual Bouzouki is programmed to play only down when the user plays slow notes, but in fast playing it plays every other down and up. That way it avoids the 'machine-gun' sounding effect. Of course you can trigger 'plectrum down' if you want that feeling.
You can find isolated guitar loops out there on the internet, but it can be difficult to make a random clip fit into your pre-existing song. By contrast, virtual software instruments use libraries of sampled guitar notes, playable with your MIDI keyboard within any DAW.
To help you find the guitar sounds that are right for your next hit, we compiled a list of the best free guitar VST plugins that you can download and start using in your productions today. The following software covers a wide variety of guitars: electric, acoustic, classical, lap steel, 12-strings, and non-Western stringed instruments like the Chinese moon guitar (yueqin) or the Greek bouzouki.

The first entry in our Plectra Series of picked, plucked and strummed stringed instruments! This exquisite instrument for KONTAKT 4 is a joy to play right out of the box. Featuring all important articulations, intelligent string switching, true legato playing, multiple mics and advanced scripting, this is the most deeply-sampled bouzouki library yet. A perfect tool for film, TV and game composers, as well as rock and pop producers looking to add a new unique tone to their tracks.
Designed, recorded and produced by Dimitris Plagiannis, our first entry into the Plectra Series of virtual instruments is a classic instrument of Greek music. Reminiscent of the European mandolin but with a deeper, richer tone, the bouzouki has its roots as one of the oldest musical instruments. No sample libraries existed that truly captured this beautiful instrument in great depth and detail, until now!
Our 8-string acoustic bouzouki has been thoroughly sampled and produced with all the love and care you would expect from a next-generation virtual instrument. Extensive, custom scripting by Dimitris has been created to simulate real playing as accurately as possible. From dynamic changes to up and down strokes, string selection, note speed, legato slides, hammer-ons, pull-offs and more, every facet of bouzouki performance has been painstakingly recreated.
Ive said before that as a guitarist i would never play a melody on a virtual guitar, theres something about the articulation of playing an actual guitar that i don't think can really be captured for sampling to a piano midi device. It just ends up sounding like a piano string instrument like a dulcimer or zither in my opinion. Sometimes i even have to break up a guitar melody i record piece by piece and then join up the different tracks in my DAW, but this still sounds way better than a sampled solo guitar in my opinion. So the regular guitars didn't do it for me but the Pad is really nice. Its not one of the more interesting pads on Pianobook with a bunch of stuff going on but maybe thats exactly what you need. It's extremely warm, rounded and intimate. Im actually using it in a track right now and subtly layering a more interesting pad on-top of it. It also has some slight pulsing which is awesome.
This is equipment that's defined the sound of some of the biggest hits in popular music, from classic rock to modern electronic music. You will not find effects of this quality included in any other virtual instrument on the market today.
Nowadays, you can easily access the mandolin as a plugin, a virtual instrument that provides the authentic and organic sound of a real one. So essentially, we have a wallet full of high-quality recorded sounds, which we can use anytime in any context.
The sound was established by the indiginus owner, Tracy Collins. The Mountain Dulcimer and Delta Blues Acoustic Slide Guitar are just a couple of the virtual stringed instruments that Tracy has a lot of expertise sampling and scripting. 2b1af7f3a8
