    I am a newbie to this group, but a lifelong musician. I play just about every instrument EXCEPT guitar. I found most guitar plugins were terrible, but I did find a gem that I have been using and LOVE. RealGuitar2 by MusicLab has performed beyond my expectations. Like all emulators, it's not the "perfect" replacement for the real thing, but it does come close. Their demo is worth checking out. It's good for 30 days. http://www.musiclab.com/products/rg2_info.htm

    You can also add arpeggio patterns that are incredibly realistic. I'd like some of you to check it out and let me know what you think.

    Love it... I play guitar and was fooled by a piano guy who used the preset strums... thought he'd gotten a real player to lay down the tracks. V3 is coming soon!

    Great engine but unless something has changed recently, the samples themselves are less than stellar. I wish you could open it up to bring in other samples.

    Fingerpicking is really hard.. as a guitar player I can hear right away that this is a fake performance.. the thing doesn't resonate like a guitar would, nor are the strings dynamic enough. It sounds too "played", too robotic. A real guitar would have more string dynamics between the same notes..

    Strumming is one thing if you have enough samples... fingerpicking is practically impossible.

    It's like a sax... you just can't seem to fake it with samples without a large sound library (a huge amount of round robin samples to remove the "robot vibe" and even then, just changing your breath can make SO much of a difference).

    Just my 2 cents...

    Sure, no problem.

    I'm guitar player and I was amazed at the sound of this library.

    It's funny how you mention strumming, I'm the complete opposite.
    I think strumming is the hardest thing to emulate since you're slightly muting strings with both hands without thinking about it, but that's just the natural way of playing. I'm not sure how you can sample that.

    I also have Ilya's Strumming Guitar as well. I'll be looking into that.
    Maybe Ilya figured it out. :D
