This will work with the BB Chord Output Track also, I have the last version below in RealBand, you can put your key switches in another track set to Kontakt as well for pattern changes, open string between changes etc..

What great news, thanks for the notification.

I have had my eyes on the First Version of this for a LONG time. The videos on the first version look way cool. Just waiting for a big sale. But now looks like I just pay the price and go with the version 2.

Is it a completely new product? I have the first one and it does not look like they are offering me a discount or upgrade pricing.

New product, not an upgrade. Different guitars (now added a 12 string), several new features which allows to separated the bass strings.

Just a bit of info:

Native Instruments has released Session Guitarist – Strummed Acoustic 2, a new addition to the Session Guitarist series. Strummed Acoustic 2 complements the original Strummed Acoustic instrument, adding two carefully selected, vintage acoustic guitars – a 6-string Martin and 12-string Guild – plus more strummed patterns and new performance controls. Strummed Acoustic 2 runs in Kontakt 5 and the free Kontakt 5 Player and is available at the NI Online Shop for $99 / 99 € / ¥ 12,800 / £89 / AU$159.

Strummed Acoustic 2 includes two renowned instruments, captured in precise detail and played by skilled session players. Users can choose the warm, mellow tone of a small-bodied mahogany 6-string from 1934. Or they can select the full yet articulate sound of a benchmark jumbo 12-string – first produced in the late 1960s.

Strummed Acoustic 2 also introduces two new features:

'Separate Bass' patterns – played on the lower strings of the 6-string guitar – allows users to add custom bass lines or add extra low notes to chords to create slash chords (e.g. C/E, Dm/A).

The Tap Rhythm Finder enables users to quickly find the strumming pattern they need by tapping or playing a rhythm on a keyboard.


Strummed Acoustic 2 includes an extensive library of strumming patterns, with over 50% more content than the original Strummed Acoustic instrument. Each pattern features a rhythmic signature of dynamic accents, perfect for a diverse set of genres from rock, folk, and country, to bluegrass, Latin, pop, and more. Flexible performance controls enable users to recreate the musicality of pro studio guitarists from their keyboard. Sound control features and effects allow users to customize their sound and place the guitar perfectly in a mix.

Strummed Acoustic 2 was created in collaboration with drumasonic – the same sample instrument team who helped produce Strummed Acoustic. Using an array of vintage ribbon and condenser microphones plus boutique preamps, drumasonic captured every nuance of these classic acoustic instruments. A custom-built mounting rig and a laser-based microphone positioning system helped ensure precision and consistency for every chord and pattern during recording.

Thanks JMD, I appreciate your contribution also.
Yes it is good you can use it with: Free KONTAKT 5 PLAYER (included in free KOMPLETE PLAYERS), or KONTAKT 5
so those interested don't need to buy the full Kontackt 5.

The bit I liked was the open string between changes option for more realism, you would just need to add that D# key switch in before the change.

One would have to say impressive. A lot of work went into the development for sure.

Very interesting indeed! Sure could use a good strumming acoustic as I'm not a guitar player. Please inform all if a good deal is found.

Looks very cool indeed. Thing is, I've not used RealBand much .. can someone tell me, in a for-dummies way, how, in RealBand, to do have the both the midi chord track and the other midi track, on which I'm playing the keyswitches, both send data to the Kontakt instrument? I'd be grateful for any help.

Just set another track to midi by right click, set to same channel, then set it to Kontakt also by right click > Specific VST/DXi for MIDI Track.
You can add keyswitches to the midi chord track if you just want it all on one track.
Set Kontakt to Omni or same channel as track/s.

To use the midi chord track in Biab follow this guide http://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=398406#
add your key switches in the piano roll of the midi chord track.

Also here UJAM Virtual Guitarist's - Biab Win/Mac (RB DAW)

Well I'll be damned I did it! Thanks Pipeline for the directions. BIAB Chord Chart exported to Reaper and then the Kontact Session Guitarists VST on the midi channel. Need to transpose up 2x and set the right midi channel. Thanks for the hints. It all seems oh so easy now crazy , but I will never remember it. So I plan to make a movie if I get the time this weekend while it is all still fresh in my mind.

It is very cool. Sorry, I wasn't able to help with RealBand as my DAW is Reaper. Find a DAW and stick with it! Actually first tried in BIAB but hit some errors with memory. So I quickly just move to BIAB\Reaper. I really like this VST. Still do since no way can I play those tight rhythms!

Save Notation Window as a Video with Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac

Did you know... Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac allows you to save the Notation Window as a video? What a great way to share your songs with users, and LEARN from the notation as you listen!

From the program manual:
[Save As] | Save as video
-In the Make Notation Video dialog, select a track at the upper left corner. (Note: The dialog title says “Make Chord Sheet Video” until you select a track.)
-You can also set the dimension (width/height) of the video and select the number of frames per second and a specific codec.
-Press the [OK - Render Video] button to start rendering the video. When the video has been created, press the [Show Video File] button.
-You can then double click on the file to watch the rendered video.

Note: A special use of this feature is to combine a Video RealTracks (new with version 2018) with the corresponding notation in a single video. This creates an educational video, which shows the actual performance with notation/tab, playing over your chord progression! To do this, right-click on the Master button or one of the track buttons at the top of the main screen and select Render Video(s) from the menu.
