ManyGuitar ManyGuitar is a guitar and bass sample based synthesizer with over 1.2 gig of 24 bit samples.

The ManyGuitar sound library includes a wide range of guitars and basses. Each instrument has been extensively multi sampled, often at several velocities and with a mute layer included. In addition to the single note samples, there are some chord sets and also some great new lead guitar styles. Click here for a full listing of the soundsets.

This extensive sound library has then been coupled with a highly efficient sample playback engine with a custom amplifier and speaker cabinet emulator and an FX rack. Click here to read more about the amp, speakers and FX.

So how are ManyGuitar and ManyStation different? Do I need both?

Let's answer the second question first. Yes - you should have both, since they do different things.

ManyGuitar is intended to create guitar and bass sounds. It can load other soundsets and create interesting and compelling sounds, but its forte is guitar sounds. ManyStation on the other hand is a sample based synthesizer which is capable of creating far more complex sounds than ManyGuitar. You can create many of the ManyGuitar sounds in ManyStation, but on the whole, you are likely to find:

On the other hand, ManyStation is great for layering up sounds and wave-sequencing etc. The two products are different, so you really owe it to yourself to own both!!

Its all about the tone

Here are a few audio clips to give you an idea of the sort of sounds you can expect from ManyGuitar. These were all made using ManyGuitar: there has been no external processing (except a touch of compression/limiting).

ManyGuitar soundsets

In designing ManyGuitar the focus has been on detailed and highly playable sounds - this is the same for all Manytone instruments. Some of the soundsets include over 70 multi-samples for stunning levels of detail, with special layers (such as slides, string noise and guitar palm mutes).

ManyGuitar will also load soundsets in both Wusik wusikSND and Dash Signature dashSND format. This means that as well as the libraries that are already available for WusikStation from Wusik and EVE from Dash Signature, all of the existing ManyStation soundsets (including all the add-ons for ManyStation such as Ultimate Bass Kit) can be loaded into ManyGuitar to take advantage of the amplifier/cabinet treatments as well as the well stocked FX rack. Of course, the ManyGuitar soundsets can be loaded into ManyStation.

As well as the soundsets, there are many patches produced by professional sound designers, including Tim Conrardy, ToTc productions, Greg Schlaepfer, rsmus7, Manytone, and others.
