WELCOME TO THE ILYA EFIMOV ACOUSTIC GUITAR
We are pleased to offer you fantastic realistic virtual guitar. The sound of this library is rich and sensual, transparent and incredibly expressive. We have made fantastic realism by using 14 dynamic colors for each note. This library is essential for Acoustic Guitar imitation. You can use all frets for each string. The select of the strings and positions can be both automatic and manual. The control over any parameter is available though Graphic User Interface and your sequencer. You can easily use any of 14 articulations, selecting a particular articulation that you need. Legato and glissando are implemented in the library. Using those features you can reach a higher level of realism. The library contains a great number of FXs, such as side noises that will appear during the time one plays the guitar up to percussion effects.
We do hope that our library will not leave you indifferent and its use will give you a great number of interesting musical ideas.
The Strum consists of 320 slots to store patterns: 16 patterns in each of 20 styles. You can load each for 240 patterns that we created for you (16 patters of 15 styles)
There is an opportunity of fast consecutive scrolling of the patterns using Key-Switches and automate the switching in your song. You can also collect the favorite styles to set and use quickly switch between them.
The Strum allows you to use available patterns, edit them and create your own patterns. You can arrange patterns, export and import them. To create patterns you can use the graphic table resembling to the key editor in your sequencer. This table occupies the major part of the interface.
The Strum has a chord recognition system that always plays a correct chord based on the MIDI input from a sequencer or MIDI keyboard in real time. If you play a complete chord The Strum will automatically recognize it.
The Strum recognizes 33 chord types:
The chords will translate to correct guitar position and you can select one of four position for each chord. 1584 guitar tabulatures are available to play.
You can change any chord to whatever you like. There is no restriction. This is intentional because it will allow you to build a “project” patch where you can assign complex chords to a single key.
Easy & Flexible !
You can imitate guitar accompaniment in two ways: in the manual and automatic modes.
In the automatic mode choose only the pattern to hear the required accompaniment while pressing chords. In this case only the chords are recorded into the sequencer, like into Pad.
In the manual mode you can play and record the guitar accompaniment manually into your sequencer, changing chords and using chord articulations. Round-Robin Chord System is used in our library, which guarantees that the sound of each chord will be different from the previous one that will help to avoid mechanical repetition.
