What Is Virtual Guitarist AMBER?

“Virtual Guitarist AMBER” is a software instrument doubling as a professional guitarist in a music studio, with you being in the producer’s chair.

Virtual Guitarist vs A Real Guitarist

If we denied the huge differences between a software plugin and a real guitarist, you wouldn’t trust us. If you have all the money, time and patience in the world plus a recording studio and a professional guitarist available, we would always recommend: Go for it!

But for most people, most of the time, that’s not the case:

  • Maybe you have no access to a (professional) guitarist.
  • Maybe you want to just work out ideas totally by yourself.
  • Maybe you’re a guitarist but want to quickly lay down a track without the hassle of setting up.
  • Maybe you want to use MIDI-controlled guitar tracks as source material for electronic manipulation.

In these and many other scenarios, “Virtual Guitarist AMBER” is a great alternative to the real thing.

What is “AMBER” about?

Virtual Guitarist AMBER focuses on strummed chords on a premium acoustic steel string guitar, a rhythmic staple in any kind of modern music. It offers you a wide range of playing styles (Phrases combined into Styles) and sound characters from full-bodied and warm to brilliant and shiny.

There’s a wide range of functions of an acoustic steel string guitar in a song. Two extreme examples:

  • In folk or songwriter music, the guitar is often the foundation of the arrangement – with everything built around it. In this case, you’d prefer a warm, full sound and a straight playing style.
  • In pop music, acoustic steel string is often used as a form of “harmonic percussion” or as a HiHat or Tambourine supplement”. This adds instant live-feel to arrangements. Here, the metallic strumming itself is as or even more important than the harmonic portion of the sound.

Virtual Guitarist AMBER lets you do all this and much more in no time, with minimal effort.

It combines the virtues of a professional guitar, a custom premium quality acoustic guitar, perfectly tuned, with fresh steel strings, recorded with a professional microphone and a pickup at the same time, plus the most important sound shaping tools as used in recording studios, to design the guitar sound exactly as you need it in various contexts.

Why so few controls?

Ujam are all musicians and they know that the time for learning a user interface is better spent making music. Therefore, the user interface of Virtual Guitarist AMBER is designed for maximum ease of use and minimum distraction.

It is also fail-proof in that no matter how you set up the controls of Virtual Guitarist AMBER, the result will never be musically or technically wrong – without sacrificing any creative freedom. You can trust in the fact that tracks produced with Virtual Guitarist AMBER are realistic, professionally produced guitar tracks.

Start Playing!

The top half of the Virtual Guitarist AMBER window is dedicated to the guitarist’s performance – in other words: what is played. Here, you’ll find two musical core aspects you can control: Phrasing and Notes.

The Interactive Keyboard is split between a Phrase Range (left) and a Chord Range (right). The basic principle is simple:

  • When you press keys from C4* upwards, Virtual Guitarist AMBER will start playing a phrase with the chord determined by the notes you play. When you release the key(s), playback will stop.
  • MIDI notes below C4 don’t represent musical keys but switches varying the phrasing of your player in real-time. This is a powerful way of making your performance interesting and dynamic.
  • By turning up the Modulation Wheel, you can morph from normal to shorter to dead notes – another powerful way of varying phrases.

If you know these things and can switch presets, you know all you need to start producing with Virtual Guitarist AMBER.

*C4 is one octave above middle C. The MIDI note number is 72. Some DAWs refer to it as C5.

MIDI Learn

Using MIDI Learn, you can assign Virtual Guitarist AMBER controls to controls on your hardware keyboard that send MIDI controller data. To assign a control, you usually right-click or ctrl-click a control in Virtual Guitarist AMBER to open the MIDI Learn context menu of your DAW.

Native Instruments KONTROL integration

Virtual Guitarist AMBER is fully NKS-compatible for superior integration with Native Instruments KONTROL technology. This means that when using MASCHINE or any of the KONTROL-S keyboards, Virtual Guitarist AMBER will offer added functionality:

  • Native Map: You can edit Virtual Guitarist AMBER’s parameters using the controller knobs.
  • Light Guide: On KONTROL-S keyboards, LEDs with color codes guide you to the Common and Style ranges as well as the Chord range.
  • You can browse Virtual Guitarist AMBER presets in the Native Browser, including categories.

Define Your Unique Sound With The Effects Section & Performance Controls!

Find Your Guitar Sound

Let’s look at the bottom half of the Virtual Guitarist AMBER window. Here you set up your guitar, its sound, character and effects.

  • Set your player to LATCH and keep playing while you tweak controls
  • First, play with the TONE rotary switch. Notice how it changes the character of the guitar sound and compare your impression with the knob labels

Interactive Keyboard

The interactive keyboard is both a display of received MIDI notes and an actually functional on-screen keyboard. The left side of the keyboard doesn’t make any sound by itself. Here, you control the performance of the guitarist by switching between 34 different phrases. 11 of these phrases are set by the style, the rest are always available.

Common Phrases

The lower left of the MIDI keyboard (C#1 – B2) is reserved for a collection of so-called “Common Phrases”. These phrases are “hard-wired” and won’t change with the STYLE selection. Common Phrases complement the Style Phrases by phrasings that are more generic and applicable to multiple contexts.

Style Phrases

Keys in this area select phrases of the currently selected Style. Phrases in the Style Range start with the lowest density/intensity on C3 and get more agitated as you move towards Bb3.

Chord Range

Keys in the Chord range function almost like a regular musical keyboard: You start and stop the guitarist’s performance and you determine the chords played. It’s like playing keyboard, except that instead of playing notes you select the chord the guitarist will perform as a phrase.

Performance Controls

Performance controls let you adjust the musical performance of Virtual Guitarist AMBER to your song’s feel and tempo.

  • Latch – When Latch is activated, once you press a key in the Chord range, Virtual Guitarist AMBER will keep playing until you press the Stop key. When Latch is off, Virtual Guitarist AMBER only plays as long as you hold at least one key in the Chord range.
  • Speed – The Speed switch lets you halve (0.5x) or double (2x) Virtual Guitarist AMBER’s tempo relative to the song tempo.
  • Swing – This function, often also called “Shuffle”, delays the off-beats. Virtual Guitarist AMBER will automatically switch the Swing resolution to 8th or 16th note depending on the selected Style.

FEEL – You can tweak the feel of your guitarist’s performance either towards relaxed or rushed using this control:

  • As you move the slider to the left, the player will play off-beats slightly earlier, leading to a rushed or driving feel
  • In the opposite direction, off-beats will be slightly delayed, creating a laidback or relaxed feel

GUITAR Section

This area is where you tweak the sound of your guitar. Virtual Guitarist AMBER offers a large range of sounds from warm, soft and round to brilliant and sparkling.

  • Position – The POSITION knob emulates moving the strumming hand between neck and bridge. The center position represents the recording position – the hand strumming over the soundhole – and is therefore neutral.
  • Tone – This 5-way switch lets you change the tone of the guitar sound basically from “a lot of low end” to “a lot of high end”.
  • Source – The source material of Virtual Guitarist AMBER has been recorded with both a microphone and a pickup mounted on the guitar. The SOURCE selector lets you choose between four different selections of those two signals: Mic, Pickup, Mix and Split L/R
  • Shimmer – The SHIMMER knob adds silvery high-end to the signal, making the guitar shimmer or sparkle even more.

Guitar Modes

The three knobs underneath the POSITION control allow you to add typical Fret Noise, to re-tune or to duplicate the guitar

Playing With The Built-In Effects

Ujam strongly encourage you to use your go-to audio processing tools when perfecting your guitar tracks. However, in order to save you time and create a more interesting range of instantly accessible presets, Ujam have included the three most important effects right on board: delay, chorus and reverb.
