Neck Monitoring – SPI automatically selects the correct string / fret position based on the situation. You can also change the string manually using the rocker switches. The fretboard monitor visualizes the current fret position / playing technique you are playing.
Smart Instrument Keyswitch with Chord Recognition – You can instantly select an instrument (articulation) with the instrument select keyswitches. All instruments can be assigned to any key switches, and you can create your own key switch layout. The rocker switches have a chord recognition feature that allows you to select a chord instrument not only by pressing the key to which the chord is assigned, but also by pressing the notes of the chord in the range of the rocker switch. In other words, you don’t need to memorize key switches for chord instruments. Just hold the notes of the chord in the range of the rocker switch and you’re ready to play the chord.
Large number of guitar beat samples – Hummingbird includes more percussion samples (beats, taps, beats on different parts of the guitar body) that allow you to play and create percussion and rhythmic guitar tracks.
Customizable Strum Key – In addition to the custom chord editor, you can customize how each string plays when you press the Strum keys and the regular key.
* This is not a so-called “arpeggiator”. This is a function that lets you play a specific note (string) of a chord individually.
True stereo recording – Samples were recorded with three microphones; a pair of small diaphragm microphones for stereo recording and one large diaphragm microphone for monaural recording. The Double-Tracking tool is available as a stereo option for a large diaphragm microphone.
