Is your instrument or Digital Audio Workstation compatible with Armchair Guitarist? Check here to find out.


Compatibility with VST Hosts

Armchair Guitarist should work with any 32bit VST Host that is capable of receiving MIDI messages from its plugins. Quite a few of these have been tested now- I can confirm that it works in the following:

  • Cubase 5
  • Energy XT 2.5
  • FL Studio 9
  • Ableton Live 8.0.4
  • Reaper 3.x
  • VSTHost 1.45
  • Orion 7.6
  • ACID Pro 7.0


Compatible Controllers

Theoretically, any Direct Input game controller should work with the plugin, although guitar controllers are preferred. In practise, this is what's been confirmed so far:


Controller XBox 360 Playstation 3 Playstation 2 Nintendo Wii
Rock Band 1 Stratocaster Yes Yes ?? ??
Rock Band 2 Stratocaster ?? Yes ?? ??
The Beatles: Rock Band Hofner Bass Yes ?? ?? ??
Guitar Hero III Les Paul Yes ?? ?? No
Guitar Hero World Tour Controller Yes Yes ?? No
Guitar Hero 5 Controller Yes Yes ?? No


This chart will be updated as and when I am able to test new controllers, or receive user feedback. To let me know if your controller works, please email your controller type, whether it worked, and the platform you usually use it on to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
