not having much luck searching so i thought i'd throw this out...anyone know of a good (preferably freeware) plug-in to simulate 12-string guitar and/or acoustic guitar (when playing an electric guitar)?
thanks

Depends on if you want it to sound halfway realistic or not.

there is a nice plugin called "bodilizer" that may help an electric sound like an acoustic, but as far as making is 12 string, i dont think so, personally.

thanks for the reply. "realistic" is definitely high on the priority list :)
guess if no one else pipes up, i'll have to keep wishing...

if you want nicely sampled 12 string sounds, I would go with

"real guitar"

lemme find the link:

http://www.musiclab.com/products/realgtr_info.htm

they have some realistic strumming patters, some lead parts, and the sounds are great.

Yeah - real guitar does a reasonable job of a 12 string - but as with any other sampled guitar - the real thing is still better as there are nuances produced by picking style, body resonance etc.

An idea - download the 'excitation signals' at the bottom of this article on physical modeling techniques for guitar and try them as impulse responses in REAverb (wet signal, moderate volume).

Worth the try!

Then you'll need a doubler & high ringing frequencies (ReaFir will do) to get to a 12-string

but even then....
