I'm a new musician trying to become comfortable with FL Studio 11. Most of my difficulties lie in creating the sounds that I hear in my head. With that in mind, how should I go about making or finding a guitar sound similar to the one at 1:05 in this song without a live recording?
Fender Stratocaster (or other twangy sounding guitar, anything with a single coil pick up should do), through a compressor, DI into your DAW, then apply light digital delay in post production. You will need to find some one to play the part though.
This track sounds like he was playing an Omnisphere guitar patch and bending the pitch wheel. It doesn't really sound like a real guitar performance to me.
Buy a guitar or find yourself a guitar player to team up with. A sampler might get you into similar territory if you have the right samples but it will still just be an approximation and might not sound convincing as a guitar.
