RealEight was sampled using a custom, very high quality hand-made 8-string electric guitar, an instrument preferentially used for Metal and Hard Rock productions.
RealEight is a sample-based virtual instrument with an innovative approach to guitar sound modeling and guitar techniques emulated on a standard MIDI keyboard.
RealEight provides incredible playability based on the unique performance modes and easy-to-use keyboard layout as well as the advanced key/pedal/velocity switch system allowing a keyboardist to perform guitar parts with a whole new level of realistic expression. RealEight covers practically all sounds, articulations, and techniques a professional guitarist can produce on his instrument, including mute, bridge mute, harmonics, pinch harmonics, unison bend, strumming, picking, chord chopping, scrapes, and much more...
24-bit 96kHz high quality dry samples recorded directly from pick-ups let you easily create any desired guitar sound using your favorite amplifier simulator.
Able to jump instantly between shredding solos, speed metal tapping, power riffing and ghoulishly distorted bass lines, RealEight is a versatile addition to the MusicLab stable. Death’s head tattoos not included.
