    Affordable, Kontakt-compatible electric guitar VST?

    Sign in to disable this ad
    I'm looking for a decent electric guitar VSTi that fits the following two criteria:

    1. It needs to be Kontakt compatible.
    2. It has to cost less than $75. ($50 is even better!)

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks!

    Watch for IK Multimedia deals (Amplitube), they'll ocassionally offer a steep discount on the basic $149 package which includes quite a bit.

    Sometimes audiodeluxe.com has deals not on the manufacturer's site (nothing right now though):

    That's an amp simulator, right?

    I'm looking for a guitar VST, by which I mean a virtual electric guitar that can be played with a MIDI keyboard.

    I don't currently own an actual electric guitar, so I have to try and simulate one with a MIDI controller.

    Yeah sorry didn't follow. Since I play guitar I've never needed/thought to use a guitar VSTi so I've not been any help. Free bump.

    I play guitar too, and I would rather use a real guitar, but I don't currently own one, and I'm currently on a shoestring budget.

    Thanks for the bump!

    I have the full version of Kontakt.

    I see so few options out there in this price range that I doubt you could find all the different styles you're naming.

    Feel free to prove me wrong though!

    I'm just trying to get a better handle on what you're after. There are so many different guitar libraries available because there are so many different guitar categories: electric (clean, distorted, metal, cinematic, ambient, 7-string, baritone), acoustic (6-string steel, 6-string nylon, 12-string, hybrid), ethnic (oud, dombra, bouzouki, etc.), acoustic bass guitar, simple GUIs, GUIs with sequencing/arps, articulations, chording/strumming, loops/phrases/one-shots. You just missed some nice sales from Dream Audio Tools (Indie Fingers), Heavyocity (GP03/05 Scoring Guitars1/2), Realitone (Finger Pick), Audio Imperia (Trailer Guitars), Sampleism (Guitar Scaped, Epic Guitar) and Kontakt Hub (Offensive Guitar, Fingerpicked Guitars). AudioPluginDeals usually has some previous bundles/libraries on sale in their Store section. PluginBoutique has an upgrade offer for the AAS Strum2 plugin ($49) from the Strum Sessions library (previously on sale for $10). SONiVOX often has its guitar plugins (Bright Electric Guitar, Classic Bass, and Tatlor Acoustic Guitar) go on sale for $10-or-under.

    Back to Kontakt: I just purchased this one from Zero-G and haven't even downloaded it yet:
    Inspiring Guitars.
    It looks like it can cover a number of bases, but it's loop-based and I'm not sure how easy the interface can slice a loop into single sounds/tones. The price is not bad.

    6/5: I had some time to play with this and it's a lot like a BigFish Audio KLI instrument. It's loop based, but the loops can be changed and/or pitched with key switches, edited, sliced, etc. The slices can be played, rearranged, reversed, randomized, etc., again with key switches.
    Also: (1) Digital Audio Tools has a free Indie Fingers sampler available, so you can see if their products fit your need and, (2), AAS StrumGS-2 (VST) has a demo.

    Also: I should have mentioned that I definitely didn't pay more than $50-75 for anything listed below unless it was part of a bundle, and then it was probably not more than $100 for a bundle.

    What's you primary need? Where do you want to start?

    If you need, besides what's in Komplete Ultimate 11, here's a number of Kontakt libraries I can personally comment on for you:
