If you're looking for real-sounding solo and rhythm guitars, MusicLab's RealGuitar offers everything you need. RealGuitar 5 is a sample-based virtual instrument that transforms every keyboard player into a perfect sounding guitar player.

Chords played on the MIDI keyboard are automatically converted and all important chord types are recognized correctly. Keyboarders are becoming guitar virtuosos, using a variety of guitar playing techniques like strumming, picking, muting and sliding.

Real Guitar also provides the ultimate library of high-quality acoustic guitar sounds. The two included guitar instruments offer a total of 13 different acoustic guitars with steel and nylon strings, fingered and picked as well as 12- and 14-string guitars.
