Product Purpose

For the first time, ujam has created a Virtual Guitarist that isn’t just a straight-up emulation of a guitarist playing great riffs on a great guitar – it is a story-telling superweapon in soundtracks and commercials, an organic distorted rhythm element in any contemporary arrangement.


Carbon is the source of all life and one of the toughest materials known. This essential six-sided element has been our guiding star in creating an instrument unlike any other, so you can sound unlike any other.

This Guitar is Different

As sound designers and musicians, ujam has lately been hearing thoroughly modern digital-yet-organic guitar rhythms with captivating qualities. At first, it was only in-game soundtracks and film scores but more and more it’s heard in electronic and pop music.

It’s the kind of raw pulsing sound that underlies the fiery music accompanying epic sword battles or the cold dystopian soundscapes as the camera pans across inhospitable ice worlds. It’s a wild and heavily distorted sound, yet that rawness is somehow precise, controlled, and sometimes even synth-like at the same time.

This quality is extremely hard to create even with real hardware. Guitar, performance, amps, processors – all these elements have to interact perfectly to maintain integrity and quality throughout the signal chain.CARBON is all this by design. It produces brash sounds that define the whole character of a track, or small textural elements that add an exquisite sprinkle of organic life. It’s both utterly familiar and excitingly alien at the same time.

Under the Surface

Ujam started by recording a custom, modern 8-string guitar and meticulously modeling its behaviors. They integrated it into a whole new engine that controls and transforms the raw substance in subtle and extreme ways. They envisioned and coded new processing techniques and novel signal paths to evolve these elemental sounds to their most extreme, futuristic forms. Our Ultra Amp and Future Distortion algorithms leave no call for insane overdrive unanswered. Our innovative Layerer feature, a virtual soundstage with up to four guitarists, lets you control bigness and width from a tame mono riff to the earth-shaking quadro Wall Of Doom.

And last but not least, ujam created the Finisher – a spider’s web of over 20 complex effect algorithms that work together by the command of one single knob.

No matter how much you push the edgy digital effects, the underlying sonic textures always remain organic and raw. The instrument always remains playable and musical. This lets CARBON play perfectly alongside synths, drum machines, orchestras, and band musicians.

Are You Worthy of CARBON?

CARBON is decidedly dramatic and cinematic. It is the sound of hellfire inside an Icelandic volcano and also the sensitive instrumentation aboard a lonely space station orbiting the moons of Jupiter. It is heavy and in-your-face when pushed over the edge but also light-and-delicate when dialed down. Inject an instant, controlled blast of raw power or introduce a slowly evolving momentum to build up and carry a scene.

If you’re looking for powerful, modern, and futuristic sounds that retain their raw organic character in any musical realm, there is a new answer now. CARBON.
