Big Fish Audio's Virtual Bouzouki and Rebetiko is a Kontakt Player instrument based on advanced script programming and has different playing styles and techniques which gives you a brilliant sound.

One of the features which give you an amazingly realistic playing experience is the fact that you can control which way the notes pass and which string is being used by using the modulation wheel.

The Virtual Bouzouki sample library loads all kinds of tremolos which you can change the speed of in real-time with the modulation wheel. The user can also trigger keyswitches to play either polyphonic or monophonic. Polyphonic is used when the player doesn't want any hammer on or pull offs. Monophonic uses hammer on and pull off up to a range of a major 3rd.

Another realistic feature is the way Virtual Bouzouki handles the plectrum stroke. A bouzouki player chooses to play every other note down and up. The Virtual Bouzouki is programmed to play only down when the user plays slow notes, but in fast playing it plays every other down and up. That way it avoids the 'machine gun'-sounding effect! Of course you can trigger 'plectrum down' if you want that feeling.

The Virtual Bouzouki includes different effects under the main menu called 'perform'. Here you can choose the hand position of the plectrum and the thickness of the plectrum. There is also eq, reverb, delay, compressor and a help menu for fast explanation of the keyswitch-positions.

The interface also includes a little screen which shows you what is being triggered and played.
