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.

    As a fellow Vital user myself, I thank you for making and sharing this sound, it is wonderful and sounds amazing. Keep up the work!

  • 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 organic sound

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

  • Fun not Forgotten

    This is a curious little instrument but the overall sound is nice. It's a little out of tune I found but this is easily sorted in the GUI (I tuned it up 0.1 st). I've used it on parts that would suit a guitar as it has that characteristic but with a tone all of its own.

  • Not really guitar like, but still awesome

    Really nice sound, very playable, and expressive because it was sampled at multiple velocities. It's a little unclear why someone would use a sample of of this sound when the the vital preset was included and vital is free. However, I suppose that PB isn't really a place to share Vital presets, and encountering one here as a sample might encourage some folks to try Vital who were otherwise unaware of it. I appreciate that this sound was sampled dry and gives users the option to add reverb. It might have been more interesting to add a filter to the sound within Decent Sampler or even ADSR controls, but this is still a very nice instrument just as it is.
