MusicLab announces RealGuitar v2.0 (+Intro offer)

MusicLab

MusicLab has announced the upcoming release of RealGuitar version 2.0, expected to be released in November 2005. A number of new features added to version 2.0 let you emulate guitar performance in an even more realistic way while creating solo and accompaniment parts for your songs.

RealGuitar 2.0 new features

Pattern Manager
RealGuitar is now equipped with a powerful multi-functional built-in Pattern Manager letting you use the RG MIDI Pattern Library for creating guitar accompaniment parts in the whole new and convenient way.

  • Pattern Tree view, allowing to find/select rhythm patterns right from RealGuitar.
  • Pattern view, graphically presenting guitar 'Strokes' contained in the current rhythm pattern (differently colored 'Piano Roll' type bars allow to easily visualize Up/Down, Up/Down Muted, Slow Strums, individual string Strokes, etc.).
  • Auditioning selected pattern by simply pressing chord on the external keyboard without starting your host sequencer, even with RealGuitar standalone run.
  • Total synchronization with host's tempo, start/stop, beats, loop, time signature, etc.
  • Drag'n'Drop selected pattern from Pattern window right to your host's MIDI track (pattern is automatically multiplied by the assigned number of measures).
  • Real time pattern arranging (dramatic changing pattern performance on the fly):
    • Add/reduce dynamics (velo+).
    • Randomize dynamics.
    • Apply velocity of trigger chord to pattern dynamics.
    • Continuous dynamics changes (+/- velocity assigned to Pitch Bender controller).

Features added to Solo mode:

  • Hammer-on, Pull-off.
  • Hammer-on with automatic Pull-off on key release.
  • Legato Slide (up and down) - automatic slide between any two pressed notes.
  • Note-Off Repetition - automatically repeating the released note(s) to easily perform tremolo technique.
  • 4 Key Switch FX keys (C1, C#1, D1, D#1) let you assign and use up to 4 various guitar effects in the same performance.
  • 'Silent' Key Switch mode - allows to switch to new sound (Key Switch FX) without muting the previous one (e.g. performing Harmonics over sustained bass note).
  • Pedal Switch FX - switching to various guitar effects/articulations by pressing Sustain Pedal.

You can now purchase the RealGuitar v1.5 bundle for the special reduced price of US$199 and receive a free upgrade to version 2.0 upon release.
