This electronic download of RealStrat 3 from Big Fish Audio is a sample-based Fender Stratocaster virtual instrument with an innovative approach to guitar sound modeling and performance. With the use of a MIDI keyboard controller, RealStrat 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 140 guitar frets using just 46 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 1,250 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: RealStrat ships with IK Multimedia's AmpliTube 3 Custom Shop software, offering a complete guitar amp modeling solution with effects.
