MusicLab has released RealEight, an 8-string sample-based electric guitar virtual instrument for Windows and Mac.

Musiclab RealEight

RealEight provides incredible playability based on easy-to-use keyboard layout as well as the advanced key/pedal/velocity switch system allowing a keyboardist to perform guitar parts with a whole new level of realistic expression.

RealEight covers practically all sounds, articulations, and techniques a professional guitarist can produce on his 8-string electric guitar, including mute, bridge mute, harmonics, pinch harmonics, sliding, scraping, etc…

24-bit high quality dry samples recorded directly from pick-ups let you easily create any desired guitar sound using your favorite amplifier simulator.

RealEight features

  • Deep sound covering huge 5-octave note range (8 strings, 24 frets).
  • Ready-to-use Double Track and Quad Track patches with a single MIDI input.
  • 30+ authentic guitar articulations and effects.
  • Advanced Humanize section allowing to add realism to the performance both live and step-recorded in a MIDI track.
  • Bass mode lowering the pitch of all strings to Bass guitar tuning.
  • Unique Floating Fret Position technology, which imitates change of fret position of a guitarist’s hand on the neck. This gives a user the possibility of playing on up to 200 guitar frets using just 60 keys of a standard keyboard.

RealEight for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/AAX) is available for purchase for $149 USD. MusicLab customers can log in to their MusicLab account and check out their RealEight Special Offers.
