Easy-to-make realistic guitar sounds on your computer.
MusicLab RealGuitar 2L was created to meet your needs when you are serious about creating truly realistic sounding solo and accompaniment guitar for your songs. RealGuitar is a sample-based virtual guitar that takes an innovative approach to guitar sound modeling and guitar part performing on keyboard.
The true power of RealGuitar lies in 3 brand new technologies incorporated in this innovative guitar performance tool:
•New multi-channel layering technology, incorporating a custom library of specially recorded samples taken from every fret of all 6 strings of a real guitar.
•The unique Floating Fret Position technology which imitates the change of fret position a guitarist's hand makes on the neck. This gives you the possibility of playing up to 104 guitar frets using just 43 keys of a standard keyboard.
•Guitar Touch technology, which lets you easily imitate basic guitar techniques such as strumming, plucking, sliding, bending, muting, etc., using standard MIDI keyboard and MIDI controllers, such as Pitch Bender, Modulation Wheel, Sustain Pedal, and Aftertouch.
These technologies allow you to use RealGuitar to closely emulate live guitar sound and techniques, letting you perform guitar parts with a whole new level of realistic expression. Furthermore, they make it possible to get the recognizable sound of a real 12-string guitar using samples taken from an ordinary 6 string guitar, as well as to achieve a true Doubling (double track) effect.
RealGuitar 2L is equipped with the powerful Pattern Manager allowing you to use MusicLab Guitar Pattern Library to easily create guitar accompaniment tracks. Just find the appropriate rhythm patterns in the Pattern Manager tree view, copy to the needed number of measures, start your sequencer, and use MIDI keyboard to play chord changes, or alternatively to add chords to a MIDI track via the sequencer's editor.
