Software Compatibility

Most software is compatible with both Mac and Windows computers, but check to make sure.

If you're using Pro Tools, AAX plug-ins (or RTAS for older versions) are what you need. Most other Mac DAWs support AU plug-ins. VST is compatible with a number of Mac and Windows programs. Be sure you choose plug-ins that work with your DAW!

Expressive Acoustic Guitar Tracks over MIDI!

MusicLab's RealGuitar 4 virtual guitar plug-in makes it easy to achieve realistic acoustic guitar solo and accompaniment sounds, all without dusting off that old dreadnought. This sample-based virtual instrument features special technology that imitates the way a guitarist would change fret position on the neck. With it, you can smoothly play up to 104 guitar frets, using just 43 keys of your MIDI controller. RealGuitar 4 also features Guitar Touch technology, which lets you access guitar-specific techniques — including strumming, plucking, sliding, bending, and muting — by using standard MIDI controls. RealGuitar version 4 adds the drag-and-drop Song Mode to build backing tracks, Chord Selector to quickly flesh out existing arrangements, and a 9-parameter Humanize engine to adjust pick position and more.

Perform with expressive guitar techniques

RealGuitar 4's Guitar Touch technology lets you use your MIDI controller's pitch-bend wheel, modulation wheel, sustain pedal, and aftertouch features to tap into guitar-specific techniques. Perform strumming, plucking, sliding, bending, and muting styles just as a real acoustic player would.

Build guitar-centric rhythms with Pattern Manager

Using RealGuitar 4's built-in Pattern Manager feature, you have instant access to a wide range of natural rhythms and strumming patterns: 1,250 in total. Patterns cover a number of musical styles and give you great jumping-off points for creating your parts. When RealGuitar 4 is used as a plug-in, the Pattern Manager will sync to the tempo of your DAW.

Packed with more songwriting features

Whether you're looking to swap out MIDI tracks with real acoustic guitar tones or stretch your songwriting muscles, RealGuitar 4 has you covered. Song Mode lets you build tracks just as a guitar player would. Chord Selector provides a wheel of key-specific chords to help you find the right mood for your verses, choruses, and bridges.

MusicLab RealGuitar 4 Acoustic Guitar Plug-in Features:

  • Acoustic guitar virtual instrument plug-in suite
  • Use standalone, or as a plug-in with your DAW (Mac/PC, VST/AU)
  • Perform in real time for live performances
  • Create realistic guitar arrangements for your music
  • Perform expressive techniques like tapping, hammer-ons, bends, and palm mutes with your MIDI keyboard
  • Packed with features for songwriters
  • Pattern library includes 1,250 rhythm patterns, synced to the tempo of your project

muy util

exelente plugin vst, solo hay que saber manejarlo para sacarle buen provecho

It's the real thing

I have been looking for a plugin with a real guitar sound for a few a long time, some have come close but missed it by a few points. but the MusicLab RealGuitar 3 nailed it to a "T". If someone is blind folded and walks in on one of your sessions while you are playing this plugin they will think that you are either playing a real guitar or you have hired a guitar player to play for you. That is how real the MusicLab RealGuitar 3 sounds. I am truly convinced. Thanks. Randolph

Great VST

I've had RealGuitar (now ver. 3) for 3-years and it's still the best I've found for realistic strumming. I liked it so much that I bought RealLPC 3 as well. No disappointments. They're also 64-bit VST3 plugins, which is great. I'll be upgrading to RG4 and RLPC 4 soon.

Read the fine print

It only works with two programs. I found out after buying the plug in it does not work with Pro Tools.
