    Extensive Guitar Chord Sample Library

    Hello Developers,

    I was wondering if anyone was working on, or is considering developing an extensive guitar chord sample set (acoustic, strummed). Something with more chord options, alternate fingerings, and articulations (I guess that\'s what they\'re called) than we have seen to date. I think the closest thing to this I\'ve seen is Virtual Guitarist. It\'s decent, but it\'s limited. It has a whole bunch of pre-programmed stuff that I just can\'t use. I would like something that would allow me to construct my own rhythm patterns (maybe some adaptation Groove Control/Stylus for guitars?). Is this even feasible? Would anyone else find a library like this useful?

    All kinds of acoustic guitar stuff already available. TONS!!

    Pure Guitars
    Acoustic Essentials (great value by the way...)
    High Strung Guitars
    etc,etc,etc..

    I already have Pure Guitars. I love the picked samples, but it doesn\'t have very much selection on strummed chords. Say I wanted c2, or a c2 alternate fingering one octave higher - it\'s just not there. Also the strumming does not flow quite as good as Virtual Guitarist. I think the functionality, quality, and size of the library or package I\'m envisioning has not been made yet (though I certainly could be wrong [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img] ). I\'ll check out some of the other libraries you mentioned to see if they have what I\'m looking for. Thanks for the tip!

    Damoy, I\'m in the same boat as you. I\'m thinking of Virtual Guitarist a long time already, but I\'m almost positive that it would not fit my need.

    Like you I need my own patterns and a lot of chords and different strum articulations.

    If you find something you like please post it here.

    If some one knows of some thing in the works, please let us know.

    Thanks

    Now this might be getting closer to what I was looking for. Though I want something in the rock genre, and would have liked to see minor 7ths included as well as alternate chord voicings. But it\'s getting there [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

    <font size=\"2\" face=\"Verdana, Arial\">Go to the VSL website, and post something for Herb about the chord voicings you want to see. He is tremendously receptive to requests if you get them in before he\'s through with the session. Always better to get more than you need than less...
