I installed this on my Mac. It allowed me to play for a minute or two, then the voices started cutting out, one by one. Was this intended?

I'm also facing this problem. Sound wise quite convincing but if this is technical bug for Windows users, i'll rather wait for it to be resolved before having my thought to purchase the full version. Please have a look at the recorded video footage on this link. Thanks

p/s: Don't laugh at me with the frequent key pressing. I know i'm desperate to try out !! AHAHHAHA :mrgreen: =o

Lovely guitar sound, though. I wasn't sure that I needed another guitar library until I played this demo.

They are great - I recently bought the AGM, AGT and AGP bundle which was effectively buy two get one free! They sound spectacular especially the acoustics, such great sound from them and the strummer works really well. And they don't require Kontakt which is a bonus.

I hope you don't mind, may I ask some questions ? You seem to be the only one on the thread who has the full versions.

I saw this video which interested me in the strumming / picking capabilities, but it left some questions unanswered.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xrEM448PxAE

The relevant part starts at about 9:10.

My questions are:

1) How easy is it to use multiple patterns within a song? Unfortunately in the video I can't see what midi keyboard keys he's pressing to make it do what it's doing. My understanding is you can assign up to 12 chords to 12 keyswitches, and 8 patterns to 8 key switches, at a time. Is this correct?

2) Can you choose which keys to use as keyswitches? My midi keyboard is only 4 octaves. While I can shift octaves up or down, this can be awkward during a performance.

3) How exact does your timing have to be when switching a chord or pattern? One thing I like about MusicLab's RealGuitar is that it is forgiving in this respect -- if, say, you are playing in 4:4 and at some point late in the 4th beat, but before the end of it, you can change chords, and it won't start the new chord until before the very end of it (i.e., it won't start until the start of the first beat in the next measure). Whereas a version of the strummer in the (otherwise quite nice) Indiginus guitar libraries is less forgiving; you really have to get the timing dead-on; in the example I just gave, the strum pattern would abruptly reset the instant you changed the chords, i.e. somewhere during, but before the end of, the 4th beat, which sounds like crap, as you would imagine.

4) Can you record the Ample Guitar's pattern performance output as midi, for playing through another VSTi later?

I'd be grateful for any advice.

Hi, yes that video was a major plus in my decision to purchase in the end.

I haven't used the guitars extensively as yet as I predominantly write orchestral stuff but after playing around with them for the best part of a day I am mightily impressed. I'll try to see if I can answer your questions.

1. Yes, if you use the strummer, you can have up to 12 chords, either chosen from the inbuilt list (this is big) or create your own. This is easy to do. Then you can create up to 8 sequences / patterns of strumming. Each of the 12 chords is tied to a keyswitch as is each of the 8 patterns. I guess if you needed more than 12 chords you would then just use another instance of the guitar on another track. Regarding strumming patterns, you don't have to use the inbuilt sequencer, you can create your own midi pattern with the relevant chordal keyswitches. But if you wanted to only use the sequencer and needed more than 8, again use another instance of the guitar. One note, the sequencer is quite basic in that it can't (yet?) accommodate triplet patterns of strumming in a non-triplet measure for that you'd have to insert your own midi patterns onto the piano roll.

2. No I don't believe you can choose which keys are the keyswitches. I don't think you'd need to though as the keyswitches are all central, though with a 4 octave keyboard yuo will definitley be missing out on some important keyswitches with other features and sounds like different up and down strokes and percussive effects.

3. I'm not sure, I don't tend to play live but input the midi. Best contact customer service with that one. There is a knob to affect start time up to 50ms but I'm not entirely sure what it does.

4. No I don't think you can record the midi of the patterns because it's all done inside the engine and for instance when you adjust the strum timings (great feature!) and humanisation features, this is all done inside the engine, and you only insert a single keyswitch on your piano roll to activate it.

Hope that all makes sense!
