History's first literally "MIDI-STRUMMABLE" Premium 24-bit acoustic guitar with playable harmonics and mutes, includes 85 strummable chords. Utilizes AudioWarrior's Patent Pending G-Mapping allowing users to literally strum guitar chords on a MIDI keyboard as if the keys were strings on a guitar. Playing accurate chords everytime is now within everyone's grasp. No prior chord knowledge is required. Simply load a chord and strum your board or play chromatically.
Kreator Acoustic Dreadnought has been sampled from a finely crafted acoustic dreadnought guitar with a cedar-top-soundboard known for its warmth and resonance, a legendary Sitka Spruce body, and a Rosewood fretboard. This instrument, costing many thousands of dollars, can now be played virtually in Kreator's Standalone mode or as a Plug-in in your preferred sequencer. Integrates seamlessly using Rewire with most major recording hosts including Digidesign Pro Tools.
Kreator Acoustic Dreadnought is designed to let you use a strumming action on a MIDI keyboard, in real time, to play guitar chords. Kreator's programming takes care of organizing the individual notes into chords, ready for you to lay out on the keyboard for performance.
The half-gig library consists of a sampled dual-tuned (Low B and A-440) 6-string acoustic dreadnought guitar that lives in your computer. It has been sampled on all open strings and all frets up to the top 20th fret with extremely sensitive and expressive velocity layers per chord patch. It includes wood thumps and slaps, plinks, and stunningly beautiful harmonics sampled at the 5th, 7th, and 12th fret.
It supports strum forward, strum reverse, or playing individual notes of the chords including Natural Harmonics, Plinks, Scrapes, and Wood Sounds. It's possible to map out an entire simple acoustic guitar song with all the chords ready to be played in 24-bit high resolution on your keyboard in a few minutes. You can position 16 chords per each 16 program slots per instance.
