Hi, I’m thinking of using Midi Gtr to trigger some pads/strings behind my guitar chords. I’ve been using Reason so far. Can anyone recomnend some good VST instruments?
Sure! U-he Diva is great for pads. As is Dune 3 (Synapse Audio), The Arturia synths, and there are a lot of great pads in the Gforce Oberheim synths as well (OB-E, OB-X)
I agree with the recommendation for Diva. I haven’t purchased Dune 3 yet, so can’t comment on it.
If you have Diva, I suggest that you take a look at Unify by PluginGuru. It’s amazing. PluginGuru also has three excellent libraries for Diva that have also been “Unified” and include a bunch of bonus Unify presets.
Here are a couple of Unify preset packs that I own that don’t require a third party synth.
And here are PluginGuru’s YouTube videos
