I\'m looking for an acoustic guitar library that has both finger-picked strings (individually), and chord strumming. Any suggestions? The sound I\'m looking for should go well with classical instruments.. not going for a rock sound or anything along those lines.
You may want to check out the \"Vintage Jazz Guitars and Tenor Banjos\" collection from Bardstown Audio. There are acoustic archtop guitars with both pick and thumb samples in this collection, in addition to electric archtop jazz guitars and tenor banjos. These are multi velocity instruments with release note off samples, which capture the sound of the finger coming off of the finger board. There are no strummed chord samples, but there are several midi effects programs, such as Band in the Box, Jammer, Rhythm n\' Chords, etc., which do a beautiful job of generating any chord and rhythm strum that you would want. For more information, mp3 demos, and user comments, you can go to our web site at www.bardstownaudio.com
You\'re not going to fool anyone with any of the samples I\'ve heard. The quality of the sound is not the issue; it\'s the subtle changes in dynamics and timing that just cannot be duplicated via a keyboard.
