Nice chord changes - might benefit from a real guitar, but it is good.

It’s a fake guitar?
Yep, sure is - although the developers probably prefer the term ‘emulation’! This is one of the developers ‘Keytar Jeff’ giving a demonstration. Some parts sound better than others. The fact that apparently I would need to wear a baseball cap back to front puts me off the idea of buying a keytar though!
Thanks Admiral Bob, yes I would love to be able to play the guitar over it but I can only play keyboard at the moment (at a very basic level!), although I do have an acoustic guitar gathering dust that one day I will hopefully play, but I decided to get piano lessons first. I only bought this guitar software a couple of weeks ago so I am still getting to grips with it, and haven’t really learned how to do the articulations etc properly yet - is it the playing or the sample sound that doesn’t sound right, or both? I can’t see a keyboard ever being able to fully emulate a real guitarist of course, but it’s a handy tool for non-guitar playing composers - the plan is to one day re-record with a real guitar but that’s probably a long way in the future!

Great backing track to Kaer’s vocal much enjoyed.
The guitar emulation sounds pretty good, the tell tale signs are always at the note and chord changes. I have a midi pickup on one guitar so I can record the midi data at the same time as the audio but that’s still not perfect.

I love the drums on this track.

A very upbeat piece that I enjoyed immensely. In reference to the guitar, it seems like the volume is too constant. When I work with a sample like that, I’ll manually lower some of them randomly to get more of a human feel. It takes times but it’s worth it. That musical piece in the middle is really special. I think overall it’s a splendid piece of music. Just one minor detail. There are a couple of vocal notes out of key and It’s an easy fix but I think it’s worth the time :) Cheers!!
