Songwriting Guitar overview

Ever thought about making a song like Coldplay, Oasis or Tracy Chapman? Look no further. Songwriting Guitar VST is a sample tool made for songwriters, composers and producers that needs instant- and authentic guitar strums and licks. We analyzed a variety of top 40 rock- and pop songs and identified the most common major and minor chord progressions.

Songwriting Guitar VST contains all the essential chords needed to sketch down or build an entire song. The library contains three different types of guitars (acoustic, electric clean and electric distorted) played in the four most common rhythms used for song writing.  All you have to do is to hold down a single key (ex. C) and the tool will play the songwriting chord related to the key. The library fully follows the tempo of your host sequencer and also has a variety of FX (ex. delay, lofi, distortion, flanger, phaser, cabinet) build in that can be triggered instantly from your keyboard.

The three guitars used in the recordings were: Epiphone Custom, Fender Strat TexMex, ESP LTD Deluxe, which were processed through a 1962 Drawmer pre-amp.

Songwriting Made Easy

Songwriting Guitar contains both chords and licks for fundamental songwriting. Whether you want Acoustic Guitar, Electric (Clean) Guitar or Electric (Distorted) Guitar – its right there. Everything is fully BPM tempo-syncronized, so the beautiful guitars will adapt to your host tempo. We recorded major and minor based chords in all 12 keys, so you can get rolling right away. The idea is to create an inspiration scratchpad for fast writing and get you going on your next hit without any hassle.

Easy Controls

Songwriting Guitar is all about ease and playability. We created a super flexible and easy-to-use interface. We even added an animated smiley face to the user-interface, so you can always see what emotional direction you are going in. You can choose between three different guitars – either isolate or mix them together. We also added 4-Band EQ, Custom Gate Function, Filter with Cut-Off and Resonation Control, Pitch Graphics (yes – we sampled guitars in all 12 keys). Dynamics, Attack, Release and Tempo Sync feature.

Easy Effects

Songwriting Guitar also contains a massive amount of real-time effects that can be triggered via key-switches. This allows you to literally turn on and off the effects in real-time and use them on top of the textural auras. We included Bit-Crusher/LOFI, Rotator, Delay, Reverb, Screamer, Distortion, Phase, Flanger and Cabinet – and a large set of custom convolution reverbs that brings an entire new world to the textures. We recommend using the real-time effects in sync with the texture, so you apply the real-time effects in time with your composition.
