Quite simply put, GIDE is an emulation of a plucked string.
Utilising waveguide technology based on delay algorythms by Chris Kerry, GIDE is overflowing with resonance, brightness and presence (Well, we think so anyway but don't take our word for it!).
If the sound of the waveguide alone isn't enough for you, GIDE also features a state variable filter and stereo chorus. All parameters can be automated using either VST or MIDI automation.
