More than 40 different techniques
Almost any imaginable articulation or sound type had to be involved. This is where this specific library comes in now, after months of painstaking recording and editing. Authentic Guitar 2 offers you more than 40 different techniques in 89 patches!
Superabundance of basic articulations (dolce, staccato etc.)
Many effects and unusual articulations
Special flamenco techniques and sounds
Possibility of constructing any strummed chord (with the special "punteado" patch)
Sits very well in any mix
Avoiding machine-gun effect in main patches by Random Round Robin technique
After loading the Authentic Guitar player in your DAW, host or notation program (as possible in Sibelius) Basic patches will show up by default. This is the main collection of patches. Clicking on Basic patches will offer you the other 3 instruments: Advanced use, Strokes & rasgueados and RH contact sound.
For a first playback the Basic patches will do excellent with a minimum of loaded samples. A more detailed version may need the other instruments as well.
The player has been setup with only one parameter: CC1 value, so changing patches is just a breeze. Authentic Guitar right hand contact sound: this one can be used with a CC2 change. Changing instruments or patches is just a matter of clicking in the GUI right of their names. String noises like squeezes caused by position changes by CC3.
For a more elaborated version of your midi file it is possible to load two other intruments Advanced use and Strokes & rasgueado. The CC1 values won't disturb your work in the Basic patches: there is no overlap between them.
Generally you'll always need two or three channels for a elaborated solo guitar version however: open strings combined with espressivo playing always will need two different channels if used simultaneously for example.
It is possible to use two or more instruments in one channel, but only if your host or DAW allows this (a.o. Cantabile, Reaper, Overture). See also for a free VST host the Links page.
