RealGuitar is a sample-based, specialized virtual instrument with an innovative approach to modeling guitar sounds and playing guitar parts on the keyboard. It can be used as a VSTi with any host application supporting VST 2.0, DXi and as a standalone version. The real power of RealGuitar lies in 3 completely new technologies:
1. New multichannel audio layering technology, including a library of specially recorded samples taken from each fret of all 6 strings of a real guitar.
2. Unique technology Floating Fret Position, simulating the change of the fret position of the guitarist, making it possible to play at 104 guitar frets using only 43 keys of a standard keyboard!
3. The original Guitar Touch technology makes it easy to simulate basic guitar playing techniques (tremolo, strumming, plucking, sliding, bending, muting, etc.) using a standard MIDI keyboard and MIDI controllers (Pitch Bend Wheel, Modulation, Sustain Pedal, After Touch).
Differences between versions:
RealGuitar 2.xL – version includes Pattern Manager and has RG Pattern Library (1250 rhythm patterns)
