Forgotten Guitar

An organic-sounding guitar-like sound created in Vital

The story

Not so long ago, I learnt a technic to design organic-sounding patches in my favorite synth: Vital.
So a few days ago, I loaded said synth and gave it a try. I wasn’t expecting to end up with such a cool result,
so much so that I decided to make an instrument out of it, for those who don’t have Vital (which is totally free, by the way).
Here is what I came up with!
Although this instrument doesn’t really sound like a guitar, I just found the name sounded cool, so I decided to stick with it.

I would still recommend using the vital preset if you can because it somehow sounds fuller than the sampled version
(to my ear at least) but that’s not a option for you, you still have both!

I also managed to create an impulse response of the reverb from Vital, so if you want to use it in a convolution plugin,
simply use the reverb.wav file.

  • Forgotten something..

    Ok, I was expecting it to sound a bit more like a guitar... but your description is spot on. The mid-low range actually does have a bit more guitar-like sound, but I actually really like the whole sound once I got a feel for the character. The GUI is gorgeous! The sound is a bit forceful, I can imagine it being great for EDM, but I am trying to use it to double for melody or paired with melodic percussion.

  • Nice vibes instrument

    The combination of visual elements in the GUI and the sound, which is very similar to a guitar when reverb is applied, is somehow effective. Very playable instrument.

  • Nice organic sound

    I can imagine the roundwound strings in the lower octaves. Usable sound in many styles.

  • Awesome synth pluck

    After I set the included reverb settings at max and realised it sounded like an amazing EDM pluck synth. It's not the most unique sound in the world, and it doesn't really sound like a guitar, but it resembles it in a way that might give you a fresh look at something. The sampling is great, and it plays great as well! Not sure why the first knob is not aligned with the others, kinda triggers my OCD... It's alright though... I'll take it.
