Applied Acoustics Systems has revealed that it’ll be launching an electric version of its Strum Acoustic GS-1 plug-in at the 2009 Winter NAMM Show.


Full details are yet to be published, but AAS has confirmed that Strum Electric GS-1 will offer the same strumming and chord detection engines as its acoustic sibling, and will be playable from a MIDI keyboard.

However, the body has been replaced with pickups, and what’s described as a “flexible guitar rig” has also been added to the package. This will enable you to shape your tone, presumably.


Listen to some of Strum Acoustic’s playing techniques

–>Down- and up-strokes, slides and bends, hammer-ons and pull-offs, palm muting, muffled strings, and arpeggios are all part of Strum Acoustic’s playing technique vocabulary. Performing them is simply a matter of using the strumming keys or MIDI loops.

Strum Acoustic’s chord library contains basic and extended chords available in open, movable, or drop voicings. Play the chords you know and Strum Acoustic voices them as a guitarist would.
