ACOUSTIC GUITAR STRUMS

 

Acoustic Guitar Strums is a library of just that - an octave of sampled acoustic guitar chord strums. The library utilizes a round-robin/velocity technique that captures the very essence of live strumming guitar. The velocity layers in Acoustic Guitar Strums not only scale back intensity, but also scale back the amount of notes in the chord being played at random. This results in a very similar sound of how a real guitarist would play.

The best way to utilize the instruments is by holding down the sustain pedal while strumming. The note lengths of the actual strums have been cut off so there is a slight overlap resulting in a realistic sound which you would not get if the chord was instead re-triggered. Don't worry - the instruments include "sustain" chords that have the proper ring-out, as well!

Each of the instruments also have various "transition" effects (string swiping, open guitar chord (usually used when a guitarist is changing chords) in order to make chord transitions sound more natural. Below is more information on the instrument/chord list:
