Virtual Guitarist! Virtual Bassist!

+1 for getting my hope up! :mrgreen:

Take some old workstation, set it up with an old version of Cubase, connect by VST-System-Link to your main Cubase 6 DAW and you got all these nice instruments back to your setup !

:bulb:

Ah yes,Virtual Guitarist was something extraordinary.
I’ve never found another guitar vst instrument so easy to use and powerful.
I 'd love to see an upgraded version…

That too, of course.
But on the plus side for a reissue, please note that Plex is now updated & available again.

Great discussion, I’m new to the forum and it’s an awesome place here. Well, I just bought a new unopened version of virtual guitarist (1). I’m wondering if anyone here knows anything about it and if I’ll be able to use it on a current Mac or pc. Im really new to vst and honestly have never used any… I mainly record audio in PT, but am seriously considering Cubase next…I would also like to know if I could buy a used VG2 or find someone that would sell me VG2…

I would like to thank Jeff Deno from Steinberg support for his quick and helpful answers on this matter.

Regards, Nick.

I am using Virtual Guitarist 1 in Cubase 6.0.0 on Mac OS X 10.6.8 and it runs fine.

You will have to download a installer for Mac OS X here:

ftp://ftp.steinberg.net/Archives/

You can login as guest.

The file name is: Virtual_Guitarist_Installer_OSX.zip

thanks a bunch Haraldsson!!! will do… have a great day.

I have loaded Virtual Guitarist into my Mac OS X 10.6.8 and all seemed good except " Content not found "

I finally figured it out. It’s up and running. Don’t ask me how I got it. I did something and wah-la it was there.

Hi, guys. I have a boxed Virtual Guitarist available if anybody wants one. let me know. thanks.

Bring Virtual Guitarist Electric Edition up to date. That’s the only one I need.

Thanks “harraldsson” for keeping it alive.

Since Cubase 6 is no longer officially supported on XP I’m slowly but surely decorating my new Windows 7 64 bit system. I’m sorry to find it’s tough to install Virtual Guitarist Electric Ed.
The virtual guitarists line are still the finest and most practical go to guitar instruments when as a producer you want to quickly throw guitar at a song.

I was very happy to find a revamp of the steinberg midex 8 for windows 7 64 bit just in time!!

Hi there

I own Virtual Guitarist 1 and VG Electric Edition.

I have found I cannot install them on Windows 7 (64bit) Cubase 6 (32bit)

The VG1 installer simply doesn’t work with W7.

Is there a work around anyone knows about?

I also have an iMac running 10.6.7 so I think I can install them on that system, from reading this thread, but I’d rather have them on my main Windows machine.

Thanks for any help you can offer.

You can find the Virtual Guitarist EE installer here:

ftp://ftp.steinberg.net/Archives/

It is called: VG_EE_Installler_Update.exe

I installed the Virtual Guitarist from the original CD.

All on Windows 7 (64bit)

I still cannot install Virtual Guitarist 1 (not the EE) on Windows 7

I can’t get it to move past the ‘updating the registry’ screen.

The install sticks at that point.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks
tmy

I am not so familiar with Windows 7 - I work on Mac mostly - so I am not sure why you are having this issue.

I too have a Mac and have the same problem getting Virtual Guitarist EE working. How did you do it???
I’m not alone evidently others have the problem also. It would be great to get it workable.

Virtual Guitarist EE is not working in Cubase 6.0.5 on my Mac computer (Mac OS X 10.6.8).

It works on my Windows 7 Cubase 6.0.5.

Oh well. Thanks for letting me know “haraldsson”. I was just hoping I did something wrong.
Have a Merry Christmas.

Hi haraldsson

So if I have this right, you have the original VG working in Cubase 6 on OSX but not W7

and VG EE working in Cubase 6 on W7 and not OSX.

If that’s the case that’s not too bad as I use Cubase 6 on both a main PC workstation and also an Intel iMac, so hopefully I can get both working between my two computers.

… or maybe I have mis-undertood your post?
