Get Silk — PIB/SilkVG
I’ve been a fan of Virtual Guitarist for a while. I got to check out Amber a while back so when I got the chance to check out Silk, the Nylon Guitar VSTi, I jumped at the opportunity.
While the main GUI remains relatively the same throughout the series, there is the new Bass section where you can control the bass note of each chord.
If you are looking for classic nylon guitar finger picking for your projects this is the best option on the market at the moment… with 60 styles and 670 style phrases there is almost certainly something in there perfect for you.
