Q: What would be stupid idea?
A: Play virtual guitar with guitar like midi-controller

I have YouRockGuitar (YRG-1000 Gen2). Connected it with midi, Metal-GTX + 2x Guitarix after it. Some stuff does sound pretty ok.
(playing was what it was, I did not bother to edit midi)

The GUI problem with Sforzando is also solved now: I had to download the corefonts with Winetricks. :D

Has anyone tested other guitars same site has?

https://unreal-instruments.wixsite.com/ ... he-slapper
https://unreal-instruments.wixsite.com/ ... ard-guitar (is Metal-GTX same with some additional samples?)

Edit: Metal and Standard guitar seem to be mostly different samples. Some samples are same, so maybe they are from same guitar?

Standard guitar also sounds good, but I haven't extensively tested it in a DAW yet.

Well - it was good. :D But I haven't had the time to play some more with METAL-GTX recently. So I don't know how well its MIDI commands will work in LMMS under Linux.

I have experimented somewhat more with METAL-GTX in Sforzando in Vestige in LMMS now. But there is a problem that the chosen articulations of METAL-GTX (such as Mute_Fret_Down, Pull_Off, etc.) are not saved. After a while or after a restart all tracks seem to end up as "Sus_Down".

Anybody know a solution to this problem?

Can that be done in LMMS, or do I need another program or a MIDI keyboard to do that?

Yes, you can do it with any DAW, you just add that wanted articulation note. See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i1DuOe3e9ko
