    Question About Chords and Palm Mutes In LPC

    Well, I am beginning to explore LPC, and I am sure I will bother people with questions. Akihito, I do not think you wnat me e-mailing you when I can potentially just get information from other users. (But, it might make sense for you to consider setting up your own forum somewhere so my stupid questions do not clutter Northern Sounds. )

    My first question is what procedure do people use to switch between full chords and palm mutes (chugs). Is low velocity basically a chord palm mute? Or is there something I am missing to get the most realistic heavy rhythm guitar?

    In addition, I noticed that the same chords (for example major) are repeated in a higher octave on my keyboard. Are these repeated chords exactly the same? Should alternating notes (lower and higher octave on keyboard) be used to avoid a machine gun effect?

    The lower keys are the down stroke (down picking) samples, and the upper keys are up stroke (up picking) samples. They are mapped on a sinlge layer so you can strum the chords without switching up / down stroke.

    Thanks, Akihito. So, I should use either the single, 5th, or 4th mute as the palm mute ("chug") to go along with the chord in rhythm part.

    So, right now, there is no way to "play" full chords and chugs at the same time in real time?

    If so, I wonder of a multi could be created in Kontakt that will allow that.

    (I have the bound Giga manual, which comes with the disks--which I am reviewing extensively. I am waiting until the realtime legato is finalized to print of the Kontakt 2 manual and controller chart).

    I tend to think it is better for users to post this kind of information so everyone can get the benefit of the discussion.

    Anyway, thank you for your response.
