The Strategy library is based on a Fender© Stratocaster© electric guitar.

This guitar has been used by countless musicians for over 60 years and is still one of the most sought after guitar instruments.

It features 3 single coil pickups (bridge, middle and neck) that give it a very unique and tweakable tone. We were able to sample all three pickups separately and give access not only to the 5 positions available on the real instrument, but you can also control each volume separately and even mix the 3.

It comes with a set of 10 very realistic effects and 8 different amps modelled after most of the best guitar amps on which you can choose exactly how you set the microphones, providing you with all the necessary tools to shape its sound exactly like you want.

It features our powerful strum engine, pattern maker and song builder available in our other guitar libraries like the Sunbird or the GD-6, making the Strategy library the perfect tool to create accompaniments or solos.

We sampled it very deeply, all frets of all strings with upstrokes, downstrokes, round robins, releases, staccatos, mutes, palm mutes, hand blocks, slides, hammer ons, pull offs, retriggers, fretnoises and other articulations. All of this detail allows us to reproduce the real playing of a guitar player, and easily.
There are basically 4 modes, the solo mode that allows to play melodies, the chord mode that helps playing strums or picking, the patterns mode that does all of the strumming or picking for you and the MIDI mode that allows you to use your preferred midi guitar controller.

The Strategy can strum, in various ways, up, down, muted, in legato and allows finger picking. Everything is modeled after meticulously analyzing thousands of real chords played by guitarist. Every aspect of the strumming engine can be tweaked to achieve the sound you want.

The chord recognition engine helps converting any chord you play on your keyboard to a real guitar voicing. Recognizing a chord is made through a database of thousands of standard chords, and you can edit every chord or even add new ones.

The chord hammers feature lets you play left hand hammer ons and pull offs while strumming or picking.

The triggers are set from C4 to C5 (and can be moved across the keyboard using the triggers octave value).

  • C4 is the strum down,
  • C#4 is the strum down muted,
  • D4 is the strum up,
  • D#4 is the strum up muted,
  • E4, F4, G4, A4, B4 and C5 (the white keys) are for the 6 different strings,
  • F#4 triggers the chord but shifted from the Chord Glide value,
  • G#4 stops the chord and play a hand mute sample,
  • A#4 stops the chord and plays slide down samples,

A small chord panel displays the chord that you are playing as well as the octave it is in. Right under it, you have access to a voicing menu that contains all of the possible voicings of that chord on a guitar, and you can select one for each octave.

In this panel, you can edit the chord you are currently playing, so just click on the edit button, then change the chord and hit apply to override that chord voicing, or press insert to add that chord to the list of available vicings for that chord.

You can even export and load a chord configuration using the export and load buttons. The chord configuration will also contain the information present in the chord builder if you used it.

The Chord Mode can be set in two positions,

  • The Guitar mode that separates the notes selection from the triggers. So pressing a chord with the left hand with only make the soft sounds that your left hand would make on a real guitar and you need to trigger the chords or the single strings with the right hand.
  • The Piano mode will trigger the chords as soon as you press a chord, the upstrokes and downstrokes are automatic depending on the position in the current bar. Repeating a chord can be done by releasing and replaying any of the notes contained in the chord. It can be more intuitive, but does not allow for as much detail and realism when you play the chords.

The UP/DOWN Trigger controls if the automatic strum up and down is engaged. If set to manual, C4 is the strum down and D4 is the strum up. If set to Auto, C4 acts as a strum up or down depending on the position in the current bar.

The Let Ring controls wether the chord stops when you release your right hand. This can be handy for fast/complex chord progressions.

The Mixed Mode is as its name implies a mix of the solo mode and the chord mode. If you play chords a regular melody with one note at a time or two as a legato, it will play single notes or hammers and slides as selected in the solo mode If you play 3 notes or more or play two notes simultaneously, the chord mode is engaged and it will strum that chord just like in the piano mode.

The Accent, Strum Speed and Strum Center are all linked to the chord simulation. We extracted the data from hundreds of real guitar strums and allow you to control these parameters.

  • Accent controls how hard it is to trigger all of the 6 strings with velocity, the min string amount defines the minimum number of strings that are played in a strum at the lowest velocity.
  • Strum Speed controls the oversall time needed to strum all 6 strings.
  • Strum Center is basically your right hand vertical position over the strings, if it is at the top (position 1), then you will hear more of the first and second string and if you are at the bottom (position 6), you will hear more of the last two strings.

The Clean Play controls how dirty and precise you want the playing to be, if set at 6, the engine will always use clean samples, but if at 1, it will mostly use samples of "not pressed well" notes that contain fret noises.

The Chord Hammers is probably whatmakes the library the most realistic. It allows you to go from one chord to another and play the hammer ons and pull offs between them.

The Capo simulates a real capo, you can choose to make it transpose the chords or not, transposing can be useful if you want to play chords high on the neck.

The Transpose is related to the Capo function. And it will decide if the Capo actually transposes the chord or not. For example an E chord with the Capo at fret one will sound like an F chord without the transpose function, if you enable it, the E chord will stay an E chord, but the engine will look for an alternate position to play it starting from the capo.

The Auto Voicing feature enables the different guitar chord positions depending on the octave in which it is played. You can disable it if you play on a small controller or just want to play the first position.

When you play a chord on your keyboard, our engine will recognize it and display its name and the current voicing on the small panel above the neck on the interface. You can assign any voicing to it using the voicing menu. If the voicing you want is not in the list, you can choose to edit it which will show a few options. You are then able to change every fret for every string manually, once you have made your changes, you can select:

apply to override the current selected voicing,

- insert to add this new voicing to the list of voicings for that chord,

- Export to export the current voicings list,

- Load a previously saved voicings list.

Once you're done, just click on edit again and you can start using this new chord. Remember that tou need to keep that chord pressed while you make the changes.
