This electronic download of RealGuitar 3 from Big Fish Audio is a sample-based acoustic guitar virtual instrument with an innovative approach to guitar sound modeling and performance. With the use of a MIDI keyboard controller, RealGuitar provides a professional level of realistic expression.
The multichannel layering incorporates a custom library of specially recorded samples taken from every fret of all 6 strings of a real guitar. The floating fret position technology imitates the change of fret positions of a guitarist's hand on the neck, giving you the possibility of playing on up to 104 guitar frets using just 43 keys of a standard keyboard. With the use of standard MIDI controllers, such as pitch bend, modulation, sustain pedal, and aftertouch, the guitar touch technology lets you imitate basic guitar techniques including strumming, picking, bending, and muting.
The pattern manager utilizes a library of MIDI rhythm patterns to easily create guitar accompaniment tracks by playing chords changes in real-time or adding chords to a MIDI track within your host sequencer.
Bonus Software: RealGuitar ships with IK Multimedia's AmpliTube 3 Custom Shop software, offering a complete guitar amp modeling solution with effects.
