Default Re-Guitaring in Pro Tools!

Dear Pro Tools Users,

We are very excited to unleash Blue Cat's Re-Guitar, our new guitar tone modeling plug-in capable of emulating an infinite number of guitars out of a single instrument.

Re-Guitar can simulate many kinds of guitar tones (electric or acoustic), regardless of the solid body guitar model used for recording: you can change the pickups, dig the body or emulate an acoustic guitar, all inside the box, without modifying the original instrument.



"Re-guitaring" can be used to enhance or completely modify the guitar tone while playing your own instrument, or to virtually switch guitars after recording - just like we already do with guitar amp simulations and "re-amping".

The plug-in is included as a built-in plug-in inside Blue Cat's Axiom 1.2, our multi effects processor for guitar and bass that was just updated. It is also available separately as an independent plug-in, alone or within the Axe Pack guitar software bundle.

A special introduction offer is available for Re-Guitar, Axiom and the Axe Pack bundle until April 5th (details below). For more details about this new plug-in, demo versions and videos can be found on www.bluecataudio.com.

Blue Cat's Re-Guitar Main Features:
- Guitar tone modeler, with electric pickups, acoustic guitars and hollow body emulations.
- Built-in single coil pickups: single hot, vintage, modern, active, tele, neck+mid, bridge+mid, P90, P90J.
- Built-in humbucker pickups: vintage, classic, ricky, modern, rails, bright, wide, wide(jazz), jazz box.
- Built-in piezo & acoustic guitars: solid body piezo, acoustic sim pedals, modern & dreadnought, jumbo, mini jumbo, 000, small.
- Create your own electric pickups or acoustic guitar emulations with the custom electric and custom acoustic models.
- Adjust hollow body thickness and amount.
- Adjust simulations brightness and gain.
- Built-in virtual volume and tone pots.
- No latency.

System requirements:
- Intel Mac running Mac OS 10.7 or newer.
- PC running Windows Vista or newer.

Check out our "Re-Guitaring" videos here

Introduction Pricing until April 5th:
- Blue Cat's Axiom: 159 USD/EUR (instead of 199)

Thanks BC for putting this out as I'd been following it on your site.

For those that have Axiom it's a free update. What's even better is you'll get an email (if you're on the list) for a severely discounted standalone version of ReGuitar - meaning you can use ReGuitar without having to run it inside Axiom.

This is very interesting. What does one need to do to ensure the best success at morphing one tone into another? Or does the software flatten out whatever tone it is given and then the proper eq curve is applied afterwards?

So we just download the latest version of Axiom and it'll be in there?

It'll be interesting to hear the official story, for what I can see the plug ask you to select with broad strokes the input device then gives you the tools to fine tune the results by ear, compared to what Revalver had (making you play chords so the plugin could create a "profile" of your guitar) this is a much better system.

There is a very simple calibration process to get you started, and it is then recommended to fine tune by ear - because you are the only one who knows the result that you expect from it

Yes, it's under the "Built-in FX" category and there are a couple of "Re-Guitaring" preset examples in Axiom.

We have indeed tried a couple of things for calibration and found out that the stupid simple way was the easiest to use and the one that gave the best results.

You would think at first that an exact calibration with complete measurement of the input guitar would work better, but it did not seem to be the case for us.

Understood, thank you!
