You could just as easily simply hard pan the instrument in Kontakt and bounce to mono. Note that they have an aggressive cross-grade pricing scheme. It does it all without using sustain, and if you switch to staccato chords, or any sort of chord work where there's ample pause between keystrikes, it reverts back to normal play. I even brought this up on MusicLab's site. I stopped using it because of the tone.

It was recorded dry without any effects directly to the audio interface exactly like when you plug a real electric guitar into it. In the image below, you see the Strummer page. Now if only RealStrat actually sounded like a strat - that would be great.
I certainly think Strum has its merits. Since then, a number of other guitar libraries with strumming capabilities have entered the marketplace. But personally I was not crazy about the sound of the guitar samples themselves and found the workflow of using existing chords cumbersome. Both products sound less real than a real guitar, and yet sound better than a real guitar that suffers from any number of real world deficiencies including poor micing or inadequate musicianship. It has a built-in Amp simulator, Wah, Distortion,. Details Category: Published on Wednesday, 04 January 2017 10:37 Hits: 4050 Pettinhouse - FunkyGuitar 2.
And to be honest, the further I delve into RealStrat, the more I start liking it for chord work, as well. The information does not usually directly identify you, but it can give you a more personalized web experience.

I got turned off to Acoustic Legends by their early audio demos, which sounded like a bunch of discrete notes. There's enough articulations, both automatic and programmable, to make it sound extremely convincing, and the soundset addresses all your basic recording needs. Both sides of the stereo field are being summed into a mono file, even if you narrow the stereo field.
Thanks for your support and encouragement! RealStrat has them to spare. Because we respect your right to privacy, you can choose not to allow some types of cookies.

Or I'll just record them on an audio track in time with the sequence - it always works better because many sampled guitar effects are at one tempo and don't time-stretch. I can at least tell you that this is the first time in my experience a software company has actually put their money where their mouth is, and that anybody on the fence about buying and using their products should immediately run out and get them. Again, it goes back to the size sample rate and bit-depth of the sample set's recording. RealGuitar2 was my favorite software purchase of 2007 I think that is when I got it.
It's a bit of a tradeoff, I'll admit, but I just like the versatility and features of RealGuitar 2L more. And without going into details mainly because I don't want to be the reason MusicLab's site gets flooded with e-mails , MusicLab officially made me a Customer For Life this morning. . The answer is quite well and quite intuitively. The difference is not subtle. PettinHouse Acoustic Guitar v2 Complete contains many changes - a new interface, equalizer, effects Delay, Reverb, Phaser , 12 string guitar, Strum patch stereo button simulates a double-tracking, Speed button to change the speed of change of articulation, body noises and strings.
Hit a key switch and they are now 12 string guitars, so perhaps it is six instruments in one library. Also, presently there is no way to automate changing strum patterns so you need to open separate instantiations to use several different ones in a project. It is very easy to perform with this library and the big kicker here is that it is very affordable. It means that the guitar has been recorded directly to the audio interface exactly like when you plug a real electric guitar into it. I still prefer my method of doubling. All in all, this library is going to make my composing life easier. The programming and the sheer size of the library will probably have me cowering, though, and I have a bad feeling I'll be doing more composing via mouse than with actual playing.
I don't care about the features, it's the tone I'm after. So how well does it work? I have yet to hear much of anything positive about it except at vi-control, whose opinions I generally disagree with very strongly , or anything negative for that matter. Pettinhouse Acoustic Guitar may be good, but it doesn't turn RealGuitar2 into chopped liver by any stretch of the imagination. It just doesn't sound like a strat to me, it sounds like a clavinet. His libraries are for Kontakt and do require a full version, as they do not come with a player, which I am sure is part of the reason why they are priced so reasonably. MusicLab officially made me a Customer For Life this morning. Both products sound less real than a real guitar, and yet sound better than a real guitar that suffers from any number of real world deficiencies including poor micing or inadequate musicianship.
That was my main concern, as well. I won't argue that there's a difference in sound, but RealGuitar 2L certainly doesn't sound like, say, the acoustic instrument in GarageBand or anything. On the website are video demos of how each instrument works, as well as audio demos. Pettinhouse has crafted an amazing sounding instrument with so many great ways to perform on a keyboard it would be a crime to leave it off the list. Personally I prefer to dial the latter back.
But just comparing tone - I don't think there is any contest. It just doesn't sound like a strat to me, it sounds like a clavinet. I suspect it hasn't sold all that well. I thought they were nuts, and mumbled something about finding a panning plug I could insert in a channel after an instance of RealStrat. If that's the worst complaint I can make about either acoustic instrument, we have indeed come a long way. I don't care about the features, it's the tone I'm after.
