Topic: Simulating the lute?

    Simulating the lute?

    Since GPO doesn't include the lute, is it possible to alter the sound of the GPO-guitar in order to simulate the instrument? If so, how?
    Or should one not ever bother since the sounds are very much alike?

    Well, there is no guitar in GPO - there are some in JABB. Your best bet is use a harp. Not perfect, but there aren't too many alternatives...

    Oh, sorry, I phrased that rather fuzzy.
    I have the Bundeled GPO for Finale 2008, which includes the JABB guitar.
    Sorry for being unclear, seems to be a thing I got going on lately.

    does the Finale GPO have a KS harpsichord?
    you might consider one of the harpsichord samples for a lute replacement.

    Well, I do have a Harpsichord, but it says nothing about it being KS. In either case, I'm aware of that harpsichords have a buff stop which allows the instrument to simulate the sound of the lute. But how would one achieve this in GPO?

    ah I guess the Finale-edition Harpsichord doesn't have that stop then.
    sorry for getting your hopes up

    No matter, I just tried it and it doesn't sound any more like a lute than the guitar.

    Well is it then possible through perhaps equalization or filtering to create the sound? (using the guitar sample)

    I actually think the buff-stop sounds a lot like a lute... or at least a Japanese biwa. But really I was just replying to say...

    Daniel,

    Have you tried looking for soundfonts? I seem to remember seeing some in my travels in cyberland...
    Is there a lute in the GM soundbank? Trying to EQ the guitar is probably not going to get you very far.

    Wish I could be of more help.
