I’m finding the learning curve on Steinberg’s Virtual Guitarist 2 ridiculously steep. For all it’s hype about how simple it is to use, I’m finding it anything but. The manual is very vague and the few tutorial clips I’ve found on-line (including the SB site!) were mostly just ads displaying features but not actually how to use it!
I’m trying to figure out how to get this thing to accept and save strumming patterns that I program, rather than the presets. The GRID doesn’t display bars, measures or any kind of tempo setting devices, so I have no clue where I am with the wave forms or how to make the patterns lock to the song.
I see empty sections in the performance menu, but I don’t know how I’d actually save any pattern I could develop, since I don’t see any “save as” functions. The slice section shows a menu. But it doesn’t seem to do anything except let you check it. I also have other wave forms playing off screen after hi-liting the ones on screen with no way to access those. So I can’t figure out how to modify them at all! I can’t figure out what the groove section does either. It just moves lines around but I don’t hear any changes.
In fact, no matter what I seem to try, I would never hear any difference in the performance preset play back, except when I deleted a “slice” or move it in one direction or another. So clearly, there MUST be some way to program the patterns, I just can’t figure out how. Can anyone here help me with this or at least refer me to a REAL tutorial video for this program?
