RealGuitar is now equipped with a powerful multi-functional built-in Pattern Manager letting you use the RG MIDI Pattern Library for creating guitar accompaniment parts in the whole new and convenient way.
ˇPattern Tree view, allowing to find/select rhythm patterns right from RealGuitar.
ˇPattern view, graphically presenting guitar 'Strokes' contained in the current rhythm pattern (differently colored 'Piano Roll' type bars allow to easily visualize Up/Down, Up/Down Muted, Slow Strums, individual string Strokes, etc.).
ˇAuditioning selected pattern by simply pressing chord on the external keyboard without starting your host sequencer, even with RealGuitar standalone run.
ˇTotal synchronization with host's tempo, start/stop, beats, loop, time signature, etc.
ˇDrag'n'Drop selected pattern from Pattern window right to your host's MIDI track (pattern is automatically multiplied by the assigned number of measures).
ˇReal time pattern arranging (dramatic changing pattern performance on the fly):
oAdd/reduce dynamics (velo+).
oApply velocity of trigger chord to pattern dynamics.
oContinuous dynamics changes (+/- velocity assigned to Pitch Bender controller).
Features added to Solo mode:
ˇHammer-on with automatic Pull-off on key release.
ˇLegato Slide (up and down) - automatic slide between any two pressed notes.
ˇNote-Off Repetition - automatically repeating the released note(s) to easily perform tremolo technique.
