A strumming engine in SFZ?

Postby DSmolken » Mon Dec 21, 2015 4:18 am

Has anybody made a guitar strummer in SFZ? I know it's possible - I've done some keyswitchable chords for Emilyguitar, and to turn them into strums would just mean delaying the start of some of the notes slightly, and making that delay a multiple of the string number and a MIDI CC that would control strum speed.

Add some control for up, down, and which strings (5-6 for full acoustic-style strums, 1-4 upper strings for funk) - this might be easiest with keyswitches - and that should be all that's needed, right?

So, I'm sure I could do it, but I'm wondering if somebody's done it already so I could take a look at how it can work.

That sounds like a fantastic project!

I don't remember any strumming programming already out there, although some tempo sync'ed drum patterns have been made for Garritan World Instruments, shows that it's doable.

Tempo-synced should be doable; press a key and get a strummed chord is definitely doable and really quite simple.

I'm just thinking about this because I know somebody with a pretty high-end acoustic guitar who owes me a recording session...
