Arpeggiating Guitars – That LIVE Guitar Finger-Picked Sound

Arpeggiating Guitars – That LIVE Guitar Finger-Picked Sound

comment for free sound kitIf you’ve heard of “Real Guitar” (the VST), you’ve probably always wanted to know how to create that real guitar sound.

Well, in this tutorial, I want to show you how to do it with ease!

*Note – In this tutorial, I show you how to arpeggiate. If you want that “strummed sound”, all you have to do is nudge notes over, as if you are playing a real guitar. If it’s a down-strum, keep the first note as it is, but all the other notes, nudge over, as that’s how a real strum works!

Here’s a quick idea on how to get that “strum sound” out of guitars, while using VSTs:

Back to the tutorial.

You will be amazed at how powerful arpeggiating guitars are. The beat turned out awesome.. and what, I only used 1 instrument!?

There was a lot of improvisation and creativity in this tutorial, but as you can see from my knob fiddling, the beat just kept getting better!

Using the Gate,

A gate isn’t used much, or talked a lot in beatmaking, but it does have its place, and can be VERY powerful.

The gate knob, is the same thing as the gate on the fruity limiter!

Dialing it down gives you that plucked sound, while turning off the gate keeps the sound FULL and as impactful as it can get!
