Hi Dylan,

The most strings that you can have in a track is 7 (menu path /Track/Properties).

However, you can achieve a 12 string guitar sound by using 2 tracks and selecting the respective starting (open) note for each string over a range of octaves (also menu path /Track/Properties). Bear in mind that inputting the notes will be quite a lot of work. There isn't a 12-string guitar Instrument sound but it's probably best to first check if one of the Instrument sounds might be acceptable (also menu path /Track/Properties).

Hi, Dylan,

"normal tuning" for a 12-string would be:

(E4-E3)-(A4-A3)-(D5-D4)-(G5-G4)-(B4-B4)-(E5-E5)

As You see, the strings are tuned and played as "pairs" (chorus) - in the same way as you would play a 6-string (but a 12 string needs more strength in the hand on the fretboard)

GeneralMidi has NO "12-stringed"... So, Ignatz is indeed right: If you want to imitate a 12-stringed, I would suggest to edit a track for a steel string guitar in normal "standard-tuning", clone that track and retune the guitar on the second track to E4 - A4 - D5 - G5 - B4 - E5 without changing anything else. Add a little reverb to both tracks on the mixer, and that should sound similar to a "12-stringed".

By the way: Normally a "12-stringed" has silvered steel strings, bronce-wound. Nylon-strings are NOT recomended or used as 12-stringed-equipment.

I've got a real "Framus" 12-stringed. 'twas my 2nd Guitar, and I love her very much. I prefer playin' her in open tuning (open G: D-G-D-G-B-D, or "HofbrÀuhaus-Stimmung", as it's german nickname would be). I think it would be interesting to imitate a 12-stringed-Bottleneck-Guitar. Maybe, I could try and test that with TG

Greetings
