Realtime Legato Slide
With SR5´s Realtime Legato Slide feature, you are able to get perfectly real expressions of the human finger´s legato slide which can not be reproduced with slide emulation by changing pitch.
Direct signals from the bass guitar
You can make your own guitar sound so it suits the music genre you´re working with by adding your favorite amplifier simulator.
Picking noises are recorded on all frets and strings
Picking noises made while playing a guitar is one of the most important characteristics that identify a live guitar recording. That is why we took great care in capturing many variations of picking noises. Adding these noises, with consideration to timing and picking style, will make your guitar tracks sound natural. When you use picking noise sampled from a different position of the fret board than the one you´re applying it to, the result is an unnatural sound because the noise will not harmonize with the original note´s sustain sound.
