Probably the most famous electric guitar ever!

The Fender Stratocaster (R) is and remains the most popular electric guitar since its creation in 1954. Its unique sound is the favorite of many of the world's best guitarists and can also be heard on countless recordings of all kinds of music.

RealStrat's sample-based virtual instrument reproduces the Stratocaster (R) sound from both a sonic and a playful point of view. The advanced technology gives you, the user, the freedom to create anything from simple strumming techniques to the most demanding solos.

Possible uses

There are three ways to use RealStrat 5:

  • Intuitive keyboard layout enables live / MIDI keyboard performance with numerous articulations, sounds, guitar-specific tricks, strumming and finger picking techniques.

  • Any guitar performance produced on a MIDI keyboard can be recorded or programmed directly into a MIDI track of any DAW.

  • The built-in song sequencer is designed to arrange the entire song by inserting chord symbols and selecting previously recorded guitar rhythm patterns.

  • Sounds and noises - MusicLab carefully and meticulously recorded high quality dry samples of each fret of all strings directly from Stratocaster pick-ups which let you easily create any desired guitar sound using your favorite amplifier simulator. RealStrat 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 RealStrat. 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.
