    This sounds great, I particularly like the Mark Knoepfler type sound on "Cryin."

    I would love to hear more about the "real time playability" aspect.

    Hello Ashermusic,

    The following video is a demo for our another guitar library; LPC, but you can play like this (or even better ) with SC.

    Basically my SC demos were made using only one single midi channel. I'll post the midi files soon.

    Hi Akihito,

    thank you very much for the quick delivery These are really amazing samples - and I've never seen a virtual instrument that blows up my RAM before .... with my 4 GB RAM PC I'm just able to load one single position multi, but not the one with all positions with keyswitch. Have to try this on a 8 GB RAM Mac once that is configured. What machines are you using for that patch?

    Best wishes and nevertheless Great Work !!

    So has anyone else gotten this yet? I'm really interested, though Ulrich's comment on RAM has me concerned (I don't even have 4GB!). I'm not sure if I'll be able to use it on either of my machines. They can have issues with LPC at times (with big projects) and if SC is much more intensive then I'll probably need a new machine in order to use it.

    This is why we need 64 bit computing (and virtually unlimited access to ram)!

    I have it. I had a couple of tough days figuring out how to make it work. Now I'm very satisfied. The quality of the samples are excellent. I have the Real Strat and the sound quality of the SC strat is an order of magnitude better. The Real Strat has overall better real-time play features. The SC strat plays very well when using a highly compressed and distorted sound. The SC Strat uses a different approach to real-time play where the notes sustain by default and the player has to stop them either by using a key switch or the sustain pedal. At first this caused me great difficulty, but I got used to it and now it feels very natural. However, I'm still not sure I could produce a convincing blues riff in real-time. Anything with syncopated starts and stops would tend to be tougher using this approach.

    Memory is definately an issue. I use 32-bit XP Pro with 3.25 G RAM. This is the most you can have in a 32-bit XP system. I use Cubase and I can load one of the single pickup solo versions of this library plus an instance of a single pickup chord version. When I try to load anything else Cubase runs out of memory and shuts down. However, it is very easy to see which parts of the library you're using and by only loading those parts, a signigicant amount of memory can be saved. There are also some lite versions of the library that I've yet to play with.

    Hello Ulrich,

    The all-pickup SPM multis are really huge, indeed. You'll need to configure DFD to use the biggest multis in Kontakt Player 2's (or kontakt2's) Options menu. It's important to balance the disk streaming speed with the RAM size, probably you already know.

    Hello Meyo,

    Glad to hear that you are satisfied with SC.

    Yes, with the auto sustain feature, you can avoid unwanted staccato which is caused by note-off when the same note (key) is repeated. The sound doesn't stop until you stop it - like actual guitar playing. In addition, your both hands are free until a new note is triggered. This feature gives you time to press a key switch or move a controller and you are able to be ready for next note without stopping your performance. That is why SPM enables you to control and switch the various articulations smoothly with a single MIDI channel in real time.
