First of all: I think I am quite what you call a greenhorn.
Well I want to create a realistic guitar sound especially when it comes to an acoustic guitar as I don’t have the opportunity and the equipment respectively to record my guitar at home.
So no I wonder how I can get a realistic guitar sound. I tried the DSK Guitar Acoustic VST plug in so far. I drew the chords using the MIDI editor but when it comes to chords I am not satisfied at all. It sounds like a little child hammering on the strings. No feeling. Quite mechanical.
My questions now are:
Is there a VST plugin you would reccomend to me?
Is there a possibility to differ between “moving the hand/plec down or up” (sorry, the English term won’t come to my mind right now. I think you know what I mean. The German terms are “Abschlag” and “Aufschlag”)
How can I make sound smoother? So I get more kind of a “flow”. So I get rid of that mechanical sound.
And is there a way to easily enter chords?
Regarding point 3): I used to move the single notes very, very slightly so that all the strings aren’t hit at exactly the same time. This makes it sound more “human” but only a bit. Anyway, in my eyes this is a trick or a cheat but no solution.
Regarding point 4): I used to just draw the notes using the MIDI editor or record my keyboard an then change it a bit. But that’s tedious and I don’t believe that there’s no easier way to do so as the MIDI editor follows that piano design.
Thanks for any help in advance.
