Wavesfactory has announced Strum Guitar, a collection of 4 guitars for Kontakt that play authentic strums. They tell us that Strum Guitar includes real strumming patterns with built-in chord recognizer and sequencer, plus more. Here's the details in their own words...
Four Guitars In One
Strum Guitar is a collection of four guitars where all strums were sampled both up and down stroke. The technique we used to sample these was the same that guitarists use: not all strings are struck, depending on the velocity of the hand. That's what makes this instrument so uniquely realistic.
Strum Guitar contains all major and minor chords, upstroke and downstroke, from four guitars: electric, acoustic, electric 12 string and acoustic 12 string.
It Includes an intelligent built-in sequencer with chord recognition that will analyse and play the desired chords in a realistic way and with a wealth of extra feature to make it adapt to the needs of the song.
Strum Guitar will save you time when making a quick demo of your song, and it can also be used for a final production.
