How to emulate guitar strumming in Caustic?

Is it even possible to copy an organic strum sound of a real guitar? Could be interesting, help.

Yes, but it's a pain in the arse. Basically, find the guitar sound you like, set the polyphony to 6, set the sample to be note on/off.

The work put the guitar chords (I did write a tool for this but it's long gone!). Lay out the chords, switch off quantise and move them along a tiny bit so each one is played in turn. Rinse and repeat with them playing the other way. Make each not last just long enough to reach the next note...

Copy and paste repeatedly...

And have various guitar strum patterns ...

Pretty sure I did a post on this a while back... I'll do a search in a bit!

Rob is right, I've been

Rob is right, I've been strumming chords using this method many times. Watch out for timing issues though. Sometimes guitar players start the strum on beat, other times they start a little erlier so that they hit the last string on beat. But strumming is not the only problem you need to solve if you want your guitar to sound realistic.
