The original Virtual Guitarist series was a best-selling virtual instrument developed by Wizoo and distributed by Steinberg. The last version, Virtual Guitarist 2, was discontinued in 2007. Since then, people have been asking for a Virtual Guitarist 3. In 2013, the core team behind the original Virtual Guitarist gathered again, and launched Virtual Guitarist IRON – specialized on Power Chords – in December 2015.
After SPARKLE, which specializes in chords, octaves and single note riffs, SILK is the fourth instrument of the series, which is not just an evolution of the original, but a whole new generation of Virtual Guitarists. With an all-new concept and technology Virtual Guitarist instruments now offer vastly expanded realism, musical and sonic capabilities with the same ease and speed of use the legacy instruments were so famous for.
