JoeW1's review (MusicLab - RealGuitar 3)

By JoeW1, 25/03/2013
No compatibility issues found while using this program called RealGuitar.
The manual provided by Music Lab is very easy to understand , great positioning of the information , great book and detailed.

The general setup is very simple , nothing really complex , it usually takes about a couple of minutes.

The typical functions are easy to spot , well designed , great guide provided with the soft.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

The software works very good in this configuration.

The software is stable and I haven't encountered any problems while working with it for about 4 months and a couple of years with older versions.

OVERALL OPINION

Musiclab Real Guitar 3 combines a whole new technology based on real guitar samples.
I really like the strokes, FX, articulations that are displayed in the Info bar , the added chords like Sus2, Maj7/9, 6/9, m7/11 and other cool articulations like tapping , legato , string select , slide up and slide down.

Another unique feature is the unique Struminator technology, including Smart Strum, Smart Strings, Color Tab modes that add realism and color to your guitar strums.

My opinion about the value for the price is great , is costs not much , around 250$ you can find on the net , and the upgrades from previous versions around 25 $.

So a pretty cheap product that has a lot of features and bring a lot of realism to your guitar strums.

Precision and quality of the sound is amazing , I was surprised when I first tried this program , very realistic strum , sound and timbre.

I also like the included rhythm patterns that you can use in your songs and the fact that it has plenty of presets genre based.

I've tried several models , however Real Guitar stays on top from me , even if the size isn't so big like other guitar vst.

Knowing what I know, I would get this software again , I really like the design , the manual included is great , everything works fine.

Not intuitive. No actual manual. (Orange Tree Samples - Evolution Electric Guitar - Strawberry)

By Maciej Kulczycki, 27/01/2019

Embedded in Reaper. I use it with EZDrummer, Ample Bass P Lite II.
Different musical styles.

The program is not easy to use.

Overall sound quality is good.

Pros: Good sound quality, many effects
Cons: Not intuitive. No actual manual. The official manual is in fact a list of features.
Only a few tutorials regarding the newest version.
