12 String Guitar Simulation

Is there an easy way to simulate a 12 String Guitar in Cubase 6 :question: Maybe
by duplicating a track and Pitch Shifting the duplicate up an Octave :question:
I’ve tried doing this BUT IT SOUNDS LIKE ********.

For years, to do this I’ve always relied on a preset in my Art Multiverb
or by just double tracking the first 6 string guitar part with another
Identical part “capoed” and played up an octave.

Any thoughts

PS: Cubase 6 is great :smiley: :smiley:

Remember that for a twelve string guitar the “B” and high “E” strings are unison, not an octave higher. Could make a difference in the sound. Especially on the higher notes.

As a 12 string player I have serious doubts as to how close these methods of replication will bring you toward the sound of an actual 12 string. Nonetheless I’m sure you’ll achieve some pretty interesting sounds with this form of experimentation. And that is something im very much into.

Good luck with it. :slight_smile:

Thanks for responding guys but it seems like using Vari-Audio, etc. would be able to
Simulate a 12 String guitar rather easily. Maybe keep the pitch of the
High B - E strings the same and pitch the Low E-A-D-G strings up an octave.

Like I said I have a 1988 ART Multi-Verb with a 12 string Simulator preset
in it. It kinda sounds like a 12 string but-----Steinberg doesn’t have this :question: yet
