So I read a post from the 2017 Xtra Style contest about the song
In a Latin Mood
where MusicStudent posted about being able to input his chords into NI strumming plugin to create his own strumming pattern. How do I go about doing that?
Computer: Mid 2014 Macbook Pro,

Pipeline provided some instructions on this very topic.

About a year ago we had a good go over with Strummed Acoustic. There is also a video out there which I will provide a link.

Strummed Acoustic and ToonTracks EZKeys both work very nice with shared chord charts from BIAB.

I think Pipeline and I were the only folks here who did this. He give me the information. I made the video to remind myself how to do it. This was all year ago but I have used this many times.

We need a library to store these sort of power tips. Pipeline helped me with switching Realtracks from f/x'ed to DI but I'd have to search the forum to find that post should I want to do that again!
