Re: more VG-99 questions

What sim says is definitely true when you're using the internal modeling on the VG, but may not be so when using it as a MIDI trigger for external sounds. I've never used it in this capacity, but from what others have said, I think you should assume that as a MIDI-trigger device the 99's a basic, even sort of stripped-down, version of all other MIDI guitars, and will behave the same way.

having owned the vg-88 in the past, i can say with some confidence that the vg-99 will follow the pitch exactly. you have to remember that you're not triggering on board sounds - the vg is using algorithms to remodel the waveforms that your guitar is producing - everything from handling noise to pick scrapes is translated accurately...including pitch bends and tremolo arm abuse!

here's another one for the VG-99 owners. When you do a seamless glissando
over several notes (using a bottleneck or a fretless guitar), will the VG-99
respond with a seamless glissando, or will there be discrete pitch steps
with pitch-bend in between?
