Truly realistic sounding solo and accompaniment Guitars
If you're looking for real-sounding solo and rhythm guitars, MusicLab's RealGuitar offers everything you need. RealGuitar 5 is a sample-based virtual instrument that transforms every keyboard player into a perfect sounding guitar player.
Chords played on the MIDI keyboard are automatically converted and all important chord types are recognized correctly. Keyboarders are becoming guitar virtuosos, using a variety of guitar playing techniques like strumming, picking, muting and sliding.
Real Guitar also provides the ultimate library of high-quality acoustic guitar sounds. The two included guitar instruments offer a total of 13 different acoustic guitars with steel and nylon strings, fingered and picked as well as 12- and 14-string guitars. Last but not least, the 1250 package provides professional rhythm guitar patterns that cover a wide range of musical styles, and turn each song into the great guitar accompaniment.

In RealGuitar MusiLab realized the Floating Fret Position principle, which imitates change of fret position of a guitarist's hand on the neck. This gives a unique possibility of playing on up to 122 guitar frets using just 50 keys of a standard keyboard! This, along with the fact that we have sampled 19 frets of the first string and 16 frets of the others (2-6 strings) for all of our guitar patches, allows you to emulate a guitar performance with maximum sonic accuracy.
In RealGuitar kommt das Prinzip der Floating Fret Position zur Anwendung, mit dem die Positionsänderungen der Hand des Gitarristen an den Bünden am Gitarrenhals imitiert werden. Dadurch wird es ermöglicht, auf nur 50 Tasten eines gewöhnlichen MIDI Keyboards bis zu 122 Gitarrenbünde zu bespielen! Die Tatsache, dass 19 Bünde der ersten Saite und 16 Bünde aller weiteren Saiten (2 – 7) für alle Gitarrenpatches gesampelt wurdeb, erlaubt es das Spiel und den Sound einer Gitarre mit höchster klanglicher Präzision zu emulieren.
Alles in Allem ein gelungenes Update
Keine Frage, die Komplexität von Real Guitar 5 wirkt anfangs erschlagend. Hat man sich jedoch einmal richtig eingearbeitet, erlaubt das virtuelle Instrument ein expressives Solo- und Rhythmusgitarrenspiel in Echtzeit. Das Plug-in punktet allerdings nicht nur mit bemerkenswerten klanglichen Ausdrucksmöglichkeiten, sondern auch mit einem sehr authentischen Sound. Vor allem die neue Westerngitarre wusste im Test zu begeistern.
More than just being a guitar replacement, this is an inspiring, expressive musical instrument in its own right, that just happens to have a keyboard attached to the business end. Version 5 of RealGuitar is like a steroid shot in the arm — the new Steel String model and its various tunings would be worthy of an upgrade alone, but with the introduction of Multi mode, the bar is raised further, bringing new levels of detail and realism.
