Click over to their site (UJAM) and use the following voucher codes: Virtual Guitarist Sparkle (100% voucher): 2tj2- wlav

You can also get an exclusive deal on the Virtual Guitarist Bundle (50% voucher for Iron, Amber, Silk):

@sixfinger: Just FYI - the code above for Sparkle does not contain a space  (notice between the hyphen and w) - which it will if you copy and paste.  I noticed it after it failed on my first attempt.  I removed the space so that it is 2tj2-wlav and it worked.

Downloading now...
 
Done installing. 3GB on content drive.  Registration is just the email and password you created in the ujam account.
 
It works!  Is fun and sounds good.  Lots of style variations.  This could be useful.  Will play with it a bit more later.

Got it with the email code. Nice freebie, but compared to AAS GS-2 not as versatile and hardly any better.  Will use it for arrangements as a fill-in for the real guitar.

Hi folks,
I've tried several times in the last few minutes to get in on this deal, but it is not working. UJAM wants me to login to their site to proceed with the download - but - there is no where to create an account that I can see, so I can't login. Anybody else run into this?

In the upper right hand corner of the website are three ICONs
Pick the one that looks like a head.  It's the one on the left.
Click on that and you should be able to create an account there...

Hi,
Only two icons showing, one is the head and the other is a shopping cart. When I click on the head I get a standard login prompt, no sign up dialog. If I type in my email and a password (thinking maybe this will set up the account) I get the following message:
 
    We couldn’t find a user account belonging to the email address you entered.
 
So I am still stumped as to how to create an account.

And I keep getting an error saying the State field is required, but there is no State field!
 
OK, re-entered the website and did NOT use Chrome's auto-fill feature, typing in my email manually. That worked. No State field required.

Go to https://www.ujam.com/partner-checkout/?partner=presonus as cclarry stated in post #32 above and enter the code 2tj2-wlav.  You should then be taken to the below screen where you can enter your name, email, and password to setup your account.  You'll then receive an email to verify your email to setup your account.

Thank you fret_man! that was the answer, I didn't use Chrome's auto-fill feature this time, I just typed in the info and that did it.

Re: Presonus Owners get Virtual Guitarist Sparkle FREE 2018/07/12 18:56:13 (permalink)
So, I have been playing around with SPARKLE for a day now. What do folk think of it? I had Steinberg’s Virtual Guitarist back in the day. It was way less flexible than this modern version, but I have to say I found useable sounds in the original much more easily.

More choice doesn’t necessarily equal better.

Perhaps I’d enjoy their acoustic guitar package more, or the Iron one for grittiery sounds. This SPARKLE one falls between two stools for me. I know I need to invest more time probably, but I’m struggling to get much I can honestly envisage using.

I’m a guitarist and would always play the more “upfront” parts myself, but having something chugging away in the background, or the option of a tricky arpeggio pattern played accurately is still a great thing to have up your sleeve!

I consider these tools as a quick aid for arrangement. MIDI drum loops, virtual guitarists, easy keys - all that jazz is a great time saver, but in the end of the day I will re-record every note live.

Its free so don't complain too much. I may not rush out and blow $129 on it though. I tend to agree that AAS Strum 2 might be a very good VST in this area.  It's on special for half price right now too.
 
Guitarists tend to only use these guitar VST's up to a point which is expected. But if you are a non guitarist and are prepared to get in and dig deep you will often find ways to get these things to do quite different things and they can be manipulated rather well.
 
Live guitar playing is hard to beat though.  I guess it is like drumming too. I am drummer and don't spend too much time trying to get drum machines to sound realistic. I can play stuff in seconds that might require others a week to program. And after all that it probably won't sound as good as the live playing.

One thing I REALLY like is the use of the mod wheel, which palm mutes the rhythms as you play them. It’s graduated too, so the more you push the wheel, the more the muting. Easy to get some funky stuff going on!

I got the email. Haven't downloaded it yet. Nice perk from Presonus. Will this work on other daws? 
I dunno...pull the guitar down and play something or use this. I guess it saves time if you want to keep an arrangement moving.

It should work fine in any DAW.  It is not an exclusive PreSonus only thing.  It's just a normal virtual instrument.  Thanks Bill for that tip too.
