Acoustic, Semi Acoustic and Electric Guitars (Five Guitars in one single software):

GuitarTempus Virtual Guitar VST: Acoustic, Semi Acoustic and Electric Guitars Plugin: 1.- Nylon String Acoustic Guitar: The classical guitar (also known as concert guitar, classical acoustic, nylon-string guitar, or Spanish guitar) is the member of the guitar family used in classical music. 2.- Steel String Acoustic Guitar: The steel-string acoustic guitar is a modern form of guitar that descends from the nylon-strung classical guitar, but is strung with steel strings for a brighter, louder sound. Like the classical guitar, it is often referred to simply as an acoustic guitar. 3.- Twelve String Acoustic Guitar: The twelve-string guitar is a steel-string guitar with twelve strings in six courses, which produces a richer, more ringing tone than a standard six-string guitar. Typically, the strings of the lower four courses are tuned in octaves, with those of the upper two courses tuned in unisons.  4.- Semi Acoustic (Hollow Body) Electric Guitar: A semi-acoustic guitar or hollow-body electric is a type of electric guitar that originates from the 1930s. It has both a sound box and one or more electric pickups. This is not the same as an acoustic-electric guitar, which is an acoustic guitar with the addition of pickups or other means of amplification, added by either the manufacturer or the player. 5.- Electric Guitar: An electric guitar is a fretted stringed instrument with a neck and body that uses a pickup to convert the vibration of its strings into electrical signals. The vibration occurs when a guitarist strums, plucks, fingerpicks, or taps the strings. It is sensed by a pickup, most commonly by a magnetic pickup that uses the principle of direct electromagnetic induction. The signal generated by an electric guitar is too weak to drive a loudspeaker, so it is plugged into a guitar amplifier before being sent to a loudspeaker, which makes a sound loud enough to hear.

GuitarTempus does not require prior knowledge of guitar, just take advantage of your keyboard skills. Just play and record from your keyboard, pad controller or by programming MIDI notes in a digital audio workstation or sequencer.
