 I would like to be a Beta tester. I do have Test Flight. I use PD Space G inside AUM. Warning - I am an electric violin who is always looking for creative sounds.

Well, one thing I can claim for sure: Space Guitar IS creative ;)
 Have fun!

SINGLE mode mixes the normal guitar with the shaper into a mono signal before feeding it into a stereo fx/amp setup. (The Shaper blend knob is placed before the amp here)
DOUBLE mode has 1 amp for normal guitar and 1 amp for the shaper. the 2 voices of the Shaper share 1 amp here. The SPREAD knob places the amps in the stereo image.The shaper blend knob works on the amp outputs here.
QUATRO both normal guitar and shaper have a stereo amp. The 2 shaper voices have a separate and normal gutiar has 2 amps. Note that teh MOD fx can make the mono guitar pseudo stereo before it enters the amps. Again, SPREAD place the amps in the stereo image.

AMP > MOD > DELAY - here you select the chain order of the effects. The shaper is allways in front. IN SINGE mode, a mixture of guitar and shaper goes through a single instance. DUO has 1 channel for guitar, 1 channel for shaper. QUATRO uses 2 channels stereo for guitar, and 2 channel stereo for the shaper signal.

PSEUDO - determines how much pseudo stereo you want to use.
DEPTH - sets the comb filter uses for the pseudo effect.
The pseudo effect's main function to provide stereo sound for the normal guitarsound: it has a better fallback to mono then more complicated stereo fx, as long as you use it mildly.

SPREAD places the 2 outputchannels in the stereo image, before the signal is entered into the reverb

LATENCY chooser for the Shaper
A normal setting for guitar is 20%. If you dont play lower chords, you might like to set it to 10% for faster playfeel. For bass guitar, you might set it to 35%, it will then sound clean on the low E.
If you use voice for input or a flute or any other higher pitched monophonioc input signal, the 5% settting might work, if you need to have that extra low latency.
This knob does *not* alter the CPU usage in any way, in contrast to the buffersize setting in the audio config!

TUNING - this is the tuning that is used by the CHROMATIC knob in the shaper and the Tuner. It is saved along with the patch, like all other options.

HOST SYNC - only in pluginversion hilited means it will use the host's BPM settings and will also generate the LFO in sync with it.
BPM - when host sync istn hjilted or in standalone, this will provide the master BPM for the LFO. The DELAY effect can use this BPM setting too, with its own subdivisions.

** the LFO is selectable as source in the 3 REMOTE sliders **

x 1.5 - multiplies the tempo of the LFO, to get dotted tempos
LFO - chooses the subdisivion for the LFO signal,
SHAPE - choose the form of the LFO signal
PHASE - shifts the waveform agianst the quarternotes provided by the host.

On screen preset for some classic bleusy fusion jamming with Space Guitar. Just set the dials as shown here, and channel your inner "whoeverisyourguidingspiritinmusic"
the Harley Benton Big Tone used here works just fine: it's bridge is easy to setup for nice action and the neck is nice to play on. It's quiet orange. that is perhaps the least attractive part, but I matched it here with some fitting shirt.

The preset manager is allways visible on screen on ipad in standalone mode.
On iphone or when used as an AUv3 and the plugin window is small, the preset manaqger is hidden untill you click on the <presetnamehere> - PRESETS button.
In the AUv3, making the pluginwindow bigger will automatically switch to the standalone layout with preset manager allwyas on screen.

Left top:
The presetname can be changed here. (note: the name is only stored once you've saved it)

clicking here will bring the manager in save mode: you simply then click on the presetknob where you want the current preset to be. The presetmanager will only save presets in the USER bank, so if you are in FACTORY bank, it will show automatically the USER area to save your preset in.

clikcing here will safe the current preset. If the current preset is a factory preset, it will behave like "SAVE AS", and show you the USER banks to pick a spot for your preset. Factory presets can not be overwritten.

<< MANUAL >> Opens the manual pages you are currently reading.

  • the USER preset bank is not overwritten when the app is updated. Only the factory updates come fresh with any update of S
  • the USER presets of the standalone and AUv3 are different. You can not save a preset in the standalone and use it in the AUv3, and vice versa.

the REMOTE tab has 3 assignable channels to remotely control lots of internal parameters in PD Space Guitar. Please note that these parameters are not exposed otherwise to the host of the plugin.
So automating these sliders or feeding MIDI cc's into the AUv3 are 2 methods of reaching those params.
The assignable channels can also have ENV as input source (your normal guitar sound): this means that your picking strength can steer the fx.
ENV2 uses the second channel of your interface, (it will just not work when only 1 channel is chosen for input, no harm done however)

The 3 assignable remote chanels have on to
<DESTINATION> chooser with 14 options available here
ENV/ENV2/CCx source chooser with 14 options available here
The sliders can also be used manually, but as soon the source generates data it will ofcourse be overruled. So

  • MAX SHIFT - The shift is summed upon the normal shift that is determined by OCT and PITCH.
  • GLIDE - sets the transposition time
  • MARGIN -This will ignore a certain percentage of your footpedal's range at the heel and toe. This assures that your guitar will sound in tune. More extreme settings will make this a pitch switch instead of whammy. You can use the GLIDE knob to make the switch smooth

  • LEVEL - Level of the signal on hold
  • DECAY - The decay time of the hold signa (max 29.9 secs) All the way to the right at 30 secs, is INFINITE
  • DAMPING - Often it is unnatural to have the higher frequencies sustained that long. A higher setting here will shorten the life of the higer frequencies in the holdbuffer.
  • HOLD - the knob on the bottom is the master hold switch: it can work like a normal piano hold pedal
  • RETRIGGER - whenever HOLD is activated, this determines the level at which the hold buffer will be refreshed with new sound.This retrigger will not delete the sound that is allready on hold.
    Turned the knob all the way to the right will turn of retriggering: only the HOLD switch will hold sounds then.
  • GRAB TIME the minimal time a sound has to be sounding before it is worthy of sustaining
  • CC x the MIDI cc that can turn the HOLD button on/off
  • MANUAL HOLD click here to engage/disengage the HOLD. At every activation the current sound is hold, independent from the retrigger setting. Toggable by CC

SWIPE EQ turns the graphical equaliser on/off
MIX mixes the neutral position of the 11 bands with the postions on screen. Normal use is 100%. The mix is remotable, so you e.g. can use it as solo boost
16 ..  16744 These indicate the centerfrequencies of the 11 sliders. The EQ bands have a low Q factor, but the sliders go to absolute zero. This is kind of simular to a tube amps tomne stack.
FLAT switches all sliders to neutral position.
DEFEAT sets all sliders to 0: after this you can just pull up a few centers to have a more pronounced color.

The frequency display zooms in to the top 20 dB of the sound: that way you can see better which are dominant frequencies you might want to alter.

CABINET - turn the speakersim on
MIX  - mixlevel mixes the speaker response with the original signal. Using the a negative mix will flip the phase of the speaker and create different colours.

REVERB - turn the convolution reverb on
LEVEL  - mixlevel
DELAY - predelay for the reverb
TONE  - lowpass filter, helps to make some rooms a bit warmer
TIME  - when Simple verb is chosen, you can alter the verb time here.

The dark button is clickable and opens a popup to choose from a list of reverb IR's.
The Simple Verb is not a convolution reverb but a simple oldschool thingy. It is however quiet nice when you need sound that fills in the time direction, without filling up your stereo space.

The FX tab contains 2 timebased effects: modulator and delay

MOD - the centered label is also the on/off switch of this modulator
CHORUS/ROTOR/PHASER - choose between a chorus and a rotating speaker sim.
BLEND - mixes the dry signal with the modulated signal. The mix of 50% gives the most rich sound.
FREQ - speed with which the modulator delay changes.
DEPTH - how much time the modulator is using at the max.
STEREO - chorus: phase difference between l & R rotor: depth of stereo phaser: speed difference between L & R
FEEDBACK - feedback in a delayed signal leads to colorisation, which with changing time constants leads to a bit of caleidoscopic flavour.
CENTER - center frequency for the phaser

DELAY - the centered label is also the on/off switch of this delay
LEVEL - mixlevel
REPEATS - repeats ( multiple playhead emulation)
TIME - delay time in milliseconds
FEEDBACK - determines how many repeats you get
TONE - a bandpass filter to colorise the delayed tone..
Q - ..the severness of this colorisation. Keep  this at 0 for straight delays. the colorisation is incremental with every repeat of the delay: this is used to get a bit of oldschool delay flavour
SYNC here you can sync to the BPM that is declared in the SETUP tab, which can also be the host BPM.
OFF - uses the TIME knob, other positions are based upon the master BPM.
X 1.5 makes the SYN knob use a dotted time, 1.5 times longer than the BPM note.
Setting 1/2 is half a quarter note, which is an eight note
Setting 1/3 is fit for 12/8 in a 4/4
