Guitar Strummer ?


Recommended Posts



I have read in quite a few places that there was a MIDI Effects "Scripter" script in the factory presets called "Guitar Strummer". I have Logic Pro X installed and it isn't on my system. I did a clean install on a second computer and it didn't get installed there either.


Has it been removed?


Such a pity. I really wanted it for Mainstage, as I play a Roland FR-1xb V-Accordion and was hoping to get a passable guitar strum from the chord data sent down a MIDI channel using just Mainstage.


Thanks for any thoughts.




P.S. I apologize if this is a duplicate question. I really thought I had posted this before, but my profile says no posts and I can't find anything about it using search, so here it goes again... :)

I think Guitar Strummer should still be there.

At least it is on my system, although I'm still using last months version of Logic 10.2.1

It can be a little hard to find.


Make sure to first select 'Scripter' in the MIDI FX box. That will open 2 windows, you can close the one called 'Script Editor'.

In the remaining window's Patch Selector (hierarchical pull down menu) at the top select:

'Factory' / 'Guitar Strummer'


I remember being impressed with this script when I tried it out a while back. Thanks for reminding me about it!

Thanks, I was in the right place, it simply is not there... :( On either system! :(


But on mine the Patch Selector window has a drop-down that starts with "Factory Default". Under it I have the normal Next/previous/Load/etc... Then a list:


Delay Notes Until Next Beat

Drum Probability Sequencer



Invert Notes

Key Range

MIDI Logger

Mod Wheel Glissando

Note Repeater

Note Stepper

Send Delayed Notes

Simple Arpeggiator



and a sub-menu "Tutorial Scripts" that has 14 items.


No "Guitar Strummer" and even using the `find` command from the terminal looking for files with that in the name, or even other "*.pst" files reveal nothing on my system.


I deleted my Logic App and re-installed, no change. I'd hate to think I have to wipe out ALL TRACES of Logic and reinstall, but if that is the only way to get it to work I might have to.


I hate the App store... Back in the day you had installers you could force to do what you wanted. LOL

You must be using Logic 10.2.2 and they have removed Guitar Strummer and some other scripts. Possibly because they found some problems with them.


Edit: I was going to post the script but Jordi (are you related to Fader8? : ) did so while I was typing.


Let us know if it works.
