MusicLab RealGuitar 6
Acoustic Guitar Virtual Instrument
If you are serious about creating truly realistic sounding solo and accompaniment guitar stuff for your songs, our product called RealGuitar is just what you need.
RealGuitar is a sample-based virtual instrument with an innovative approach to guitar sound modeling and guitar part performing on keyboard.
RealGuitar 6 is a combo of two instruments: Classic - all of our original guitar models with loads of new features, and Steel String - the debut of new guitar sample set with five patches and three tunings for each.
There are three ways of using RealGuitar virtual instrument.
Intuitive keyboard layout allows live/MIDI keyboard performance with numerous articulations, noises, guitar-specific tricks, strumming and finger picking techniques.
Any guitar performance produced on a MIDI keyboard can be recorded or directly programmed In a MIDI track of any DAW.
Built-In Song Sequencer designed to arrange up to the entire song by simply inserting chord symbols and selecting pre-recorded guitar rhythm patterns.
Sounds and Noises
We've carefully and meticulously recorded high quality samples of each fret of all acoustic guitar strings.
RealGuitar sample library includes not only sustain sounds, but also other guitar-specific sounds and noises with dynamics and nuances an experienced performer can get from his/her instrument.
Guitar FX Processor
Version 6 supports external guitar FX processors which are important to create a realistic guitar part.
Our experts have thoroughly examined guitar tones used in most popular songs played by greatest guitarists and came up with more than two hundred authentic presets which sound similar to what they heard, ready to be used in your next song.
MusicLab recommends the open-source Guitarix.vst virtual guitar amp as a robust and versatile solution to use these presets.
Combining a virtual guitar and an FX processor allows you to store a guitar sound and an FX processor preset at the same time, which a real time saver.
Techniques and Control
An authentic sounding guitar part cannot be recorded by using samples on their own, but requires a bunch of guitar-specific techniques, which are simulated in RealGuitar.
Whether you are playing live or programing a DAW, these techniques are controllable by using special gestures, key switches, key velocity, modulation wheel, sustain pedal, key aftertouch, MIDI CC, DAW parameter automation, and any combinations of these.
Guitar chord voicing is very unique depending on guitar construction and is absolutely necessary to reproduce in order to achieve authentically sounding chordal parts.
Our patented technology provides accurate reproduction of guitar chord voicing automatically for 30 chord types in all existing inversions, extensions and alterations.
In order to record an authentic accompaniment track, most session guitarists carefully study characteristic rhythm parts for the required style.
We created a huge rhythm library consisting of 1250 patterns.
It can be easily used for quickly creating guitar accompaniment parts in the DAW or in our internal Song sequencer.
Sophisticated humanization algorithms vary samples, technique and control parameters, timing, chord strum aspects to reach best possible realism in guitar tracks. That helps you bring a digitally simulated guitar performance maximally close to an analog recording of a best-in-class session guitarist.
