I am finding that when playing chords with some of the AGLP clean rhythm presets they sound more like a piano/keyboard versus a guitar. Is there some trick of the trade to make them sound more guitarish?

Thank you,
yeto

I personally always go to settings -> sample and set sample start to 0 ms and release to minimum (50 ms). If the sample start is something like 25 ms you're losing 25 milliseconds of the originally recorded pick attack sound.

Thanks Tremendouz, 0ms is better for ARP, Strum, and melody. 35ms is better for repeated notes - play one note repeatedly.

Thank you. What does ARP stand for?

One by one play notes in a chord, and all notes sound ring.
