Well done Adi! You have a great portfolio for sure!
Congratulations, that’s very impressive!
That’s brilliant Simon, well done!
Mainly Cubase 6.5, sometimes Reason 6.5
I would go for the Epiphone, or a Gibson Les Paul Studio if you can pick one up. I used to have an Epiphone Les Paul and it was one of the best guitar sounds I’ve ever had ( I regret selling it), but I’m very happy with my Gibson Les Paul Studio nowadays.
Hey Andy, check the way electri6ity works, it has a random strumming system, it never build the chord in the same way, so it sounds very natural
Hi Sonic, I just spent some time watching some of the electri6ity videos, I was really impressed with some of the electric guitar sounds, particularly the metal stuff, I’d love to try it out!
Sonicbyte saidHi Sonic, yep, I totally get your point. You are right, but I just wanted to explore the technology that was available. I think we are all agreed on the limitations, but I just wondered if there were any ideas for being able to use these kind of plug-ins in such a way that they are less obviously synthetic. I would imagine that a less frequent single downward strum might sound more effective then one of the picking or strumming patterns, especially if it was more of a background instrument with maybe some piano on top.
Hey, i’ve never said that a plugin could replace a real human playing a real guitar. It’s obvious, what I’ve said is that some vst are a real good option if you can’t play guitar or can hire a guitar player.
For instance I’ve play my whole life real pianos. And because I don’t have the acoustic necessary to record properly my upright piano, I’ve to use sample libraries, and of course they sound like s#@t in comparison with a real piano. But it’s better than nothing, so in a perfect world nobody should use a sample to emulate any acoustic instrument, but that is not an option for most of the peopleCheers
I think there are some mistakes that are easy to make, one thing I’m really aware of when recording parts via midi keyboard is those occasions where your finger just slightly touches a wrong key on the keyboard at a really low velocity, creating a slight dissonance. Sometimes the stray note is barely noticeable, which is why it is really important to double check the all the notes on any midi parts.
