Hey, it's great to see something new from Prominy!!

Does this handle alternate tunings?

Specifically, I've been working a lot with NST tuning [C G D A E G] lately. If this could be played in that tuning, I would have a hard time avoiding this library...!!!

If it's anything like your Metal Guitar I recently bought it's got to be great.
It helps when nthe developers actually play the instruments enough to translate more than just the sound to a Keyboard.

And Hey AlanB good to see you in action still.......

I recognized the Lewis and Clark historical marker pose.

Ah, I didn't noticed that there were replies as somehow I haven't received any reply notification e-mails after launching VI Contorl 2.0.

I see. Is it possible that it will handle alternate tunings at some later time?
We don't have a plan to add the feature for now but will consider.

Oh wow, looks and sounds gorgeous!
Thank you Zhao Shen for your comment!

[Hummingbird update v.1.11 released]

- Now chord shape select key switches can be used with Strum Keys and Arpeggio Keys. (A chord shape can be directly selected without using Normal Keys.)

- The virtual Keyboard of Kontakt and the Light Guide of KOMPLETE KONTROL S series keyboard (when it is used with Komplete Kontrol application / plug-in) show only string / chord shape select key switches that are available with the instrument currently selected.

------- Hummingbird update v.1.11 released -------

- In the User Chord editor, the 'mute' that can be selected by clicking the pull down menu; 'type' does not work correctly in the previous versions. This has been fixed.

- minor fixes

[Hummingbird update ver.1.20 released]

[New]
- New feature; 'forced hammer-on / pull-off'

- New chord presets; m11th (5 chord shapes), 9sus4 (5 chord shapes)

[Improved]
- When the hybrid mode is selected and the string skip key switch featurte is used, the sampled chord is automatically cancelled and an emulated chord is played. (In the previous versions, the string skip is just ignored if the hybrid mode is selected.)

[Fixed]
- Picking noise that is assigned to Stop Key is not played correctly in some situations.

- When the hybrid mode is selected and the prefer low / open is ON, string / chord shape select key switches cause an incorrect chord position in some situations.

- minor fixes
