hey guys:
I work with reaper, I have a six string guitar, I'm not reallywilling to buy a seven string guitar, so is there a way to get the seventh string with VSTs?
maybe by pitch shifting, I tried the Reapitch, but I don't know the sound is not really right.
so is it possible?

Using a pitch shifter works best if you put it before the amp or sim. If you're using amp/cab sims, you're in luck; you can use Reapitch on the raw DI signal, and then amp/cab it.

The main reason a thick string sounds like a thick string is well... because it's a thick string and there's just MORE metal there. You can get the pitch right, but it won't quite sound like a 7 string.

Tune down and get bigger strings.

Guitar strings are cheap, get a set of 7 string strings and discard the top one? That's what we bassists do when we need a 5 string from a 4 string, I mean how often do you really use those top 5 frets of the top string?

strings are cheap? well not in syria, it used to be cheap before the crysis, our currency lost its value, for example.if I used to buy ernie ball strings for 12$, now they cost 40$.

This makes me very angry.

Yeah, Crysis is a video game. Crisis is a word.

But if the new strings thing isn't an option then you'll have to go with the pre-amp sim pitch shift.

Reapitch has different algorithms. You should use elastique 2 pro (most pitches). It will preserve formants, keeping the guitar sounding like muddy garbage.

I also suggest Pitch Wheel which is the same thing, with lower latency.


If you're desperate for a 7 string sound though, I would just tune to B standard.

Luckily this is one of the reasons I got a Variax, so I can tune to stuff like this without having multiple guitars.
