We are proud to present the RealEight virtual guitar instrument - the ideal guitar for creating lead, rhythm riff, and even bass tracks in your future rock and metal masterpieces! New RealEight 5 got full-featured chording/strumming engine letting you successfully use it in a wide range of rock and pop music styles as well!

RealEight is 8-string sample-based electric guitar virtual instrument.

RealEight provides incredible playability based on easy-to-use keyboard layout as well as the advanced key/pedal/velocity switch system allowing a keyboardist to perform guitar parts with a whole new level of realistic expression.

RealEight covers practically all sounds, articulations, and techniques a professional guitarist can produce on his 8-string electric guitar, including  mute, bridge mute, harmonics, pinch harmonics, sliding, scraping, etc...

24-bit high quality dry samples recorded directly from pick-ups let you easily create any desired guitar sound using your favorite amplifier simulator.

Ways of using

There are three ways of using RealEight virtual instrument.

Sounds and noises

We've carefully and meticulously recorded high quality dry samples of each fret of all strings directly from custom handmade 8 string electric guitar's pick-ups which let you easily create any desired guitar sound using your favorite amplifier simulator. RealEight sample library includes not only sustain sounds, but also other guitar-specific sounds with dynamics and nuances an experienced performer can get from his/her instrument.

Techniques and control

An authentic sounding guitar part cannot be recorded by using samples on their own, but requires a bunch of guitar-specific techniques, which are simulated in RealEight. Whether you are playing live or programing a DAW, these techniques are controllable by using special gestures, key switches, key velocity, modulation wheel, sustain pedal, key aftertouch, MIDI CC, DAW parameter automation, and any combinations of these.

Chord voicing

Guitar chord voicing is very unique depending on guitar construction and is absolutely necessary to reproduce in order to achieve authentically sounding chordal parts. Our patented technology provides accurate reproduction of guitar chord voicing automatically for 30 chord types in all existing inversions, extensions and alterations.

Rhythm Patterns

In order to record an authentic accompaniment track, most session guitarists carefully study characteristic rhythm parts for the required style. We created a huge rhythm library consisting of 1250 patterns. It can be easily used for quickly creating guitar accompaniment parts in the DAW or in our internal Song sequencer.

Realism

Sophisticated humanization algorithms vary samples, technique and control parameters, timing, chord strum aspects to reach best possible realism in guitar tracks. That helps you bring a digitally simulated guitar performance maximally close to an analog recording of a best-in-class session guitarist.

Summary

RealEight and all MusicLab Virtual Guitars are simply the best in the industry. They are convenient, featured packed and give the user endless musical options. Whether a Beginner, Professional or a Producer you will find our products the answer for all of your virtual guitar needs.
