I saw it written that you might add other voicings in future, like sitar... I would love to request a banjo sound, or maybe a mandolin or pedal steel guitar? I think any/all of these would be more popular than a sitar...!

Banjo and mandolin would be great indeed.

I'm really after a Maccaferri sound, that'd be awesome!

Yes --- BANJO!!!! And not the ticker toy banjo sound I've heard in other devices. It needs to be a serious professional banjo players sound.

Plus (not that I know much about modelling) I'd assume a banjo sound would be reasonably easy to emulate, based on simple ADSR control to shape how plucked notes resonate etc...

Not sure about sustain, cause banjos have a much shorter one...as for the sound, yes they can emulate that.

That's what I mean - I'm assuming ADSR is reasonably easy to model, so the first step would literally be closing down the sustain and release time and adding a kind of 'resonator' style sound...

I've only just purchased my AT-200 and it's fast becoming one of my most fun recent purchases, but does anyone here who's been a customer for a while know how often Antares add new sounds/do updates? Or should I not hold my breath?!

Maybe adding a sustain mod is not hard after all, since all is managed per string I don't see why not.

I mean, it'd take some trial and error but I have to think it'd be easier to model than, say, a pipe organ or a grand piano :-) And I often see companies who do similar 'modelling' introduce 'gimmick' models like a Sitar, which can be fun, but I'd rather something like a banjo because it'd be (theoretically) just as easy as a sitar, except a lot more usable (speaking personally....maybe Peavey's Indian customers would disagree...!!).

tere have been quite a few software updates.mostly tweeks or minor additions. the last software added some new models to the complete pack but as far as new feature packs go there hasnt been anything new for years which is a shame because im quite sure that folks will buy them at the right price. now they have the atg1 floor pedal it may be the case that we gt some new stuff.heres hoping!

Cool, sounds promising I guess but like I said, I'll believe it when I see it :-)

I just hope antares has something planned, it would be such a shame cause the system is in paper so capable in many ways.

The fact the board has no latency alone is remarkable.

I've been blown away by it so far... Picked one up second hand, with the breakout box and the complete pack of software upgrades for £200. I've already filled it with custom tunings for all my favourite songs. It's probably going to become my go-to guitar for recording quick demos because I can layer/double track several different 'styles' of guitar, all perfectly in tune with each other...

I just added some sound examples on my drive including muting (I have a hex pickup here).

Can you guys please do them as well and compare?

I did them clean, no fx at all. Please normalize your audio so they're more or less the same.

I used a Jazz III pick.

I tried Palm mute with the vintage humbucker, Modern HB and Acoustic. (doesn't matter much)

If you compress them plz do so at 256kbps

Sorry Sacco, did you mean to post this here? Or was it meant for a different thread?

Haha :-) No that's fine, I'm happy to contribute, I just didn't know whether it was for something pertinent to our banjo discussion here or whether you'd made an error in posting in the wrong place! :-)

The Maccaferri Guitar is the N1 guitar used in Gypsy Jazz.
