A virtual Strat that sounds oh so real.

MusicLab RealStrat is a sample-based virtual Strat-style guitar with an innovative approach to guitar sound modeling and guitar techniques emulated on a standard MIDI keyboard. RealStrat provides incredible playability based on the unique performance modes and easy-to-use keyboard layout as well as the advanced key/pedal/velocity switch system that allows a keyboardist to perform guitar parts with a whole new level of realistic expression.

RealStrat covers practically all the sounds, articulations, and techniques a professional guitarist can produce on his Stratâ??including mute, bridge mute, harmonics, pinch harmonics, slap, unison bend, strumming, picking, chord chopping, scrapes, and more. High quality dry samples recorded directly from Stratocaster pickups let you easily create any desired guitar sound using your favorite amplifier simulator.

Some of RealStrat's innovations include:
â?¢Multi-channel layering technology, incorporating a custom library of specially recorded samples taken from every fret of all 6 strings of a real guitar.
â?¢The unique Floating Fret Position technology, which imitates change of fret position of a guitarist's hand on the neck. This gives you the possibility of playing on up to 140 guitar frets using just 46 keys of a standard keyboard.
â?¢Guitar Touch technology lets you easily imitate basic guitar techniques (strumming, plucking, sliding, bending, muting, etc.), using standard MIDI keyboard and MIDI controllers, such as Pitch Bender, Modulation Wheel, Sustain Pedal, and Aftertouch.
â?¢Sound Humanize technology allows you to wholly reduce the 'machine gun' effect on note repetition (tremolo, strumming, plucking, etc.)

MusicLab RealStrat virtual guitar software is equipped with a powerful Pattern Manager containing a complete MusicLab Guitar Pattern Library to easily create guitar accompaniment tracks. Just find the appropriate rhythm pattern[s] in the Pattern Manager Tree View, copy to the needed number of measures, start your sequencer, and use your MIDI keyboard to play chord changes. You can also alternatively add chords to a MIDI track via the RealStrat sequencer's editor.
