Richman2 is a plucked strings synthetizer.

Using a Hybrid of Physical Modelling and FM synthesis, Richman2 is designed to be an expressive plug-in, which in the right hands can make real sounding and organic sounds. 
Specialising in plucked or struck tones Richman2 can also turn its hand to a great many other types of sounds. Richman2 comes complete with a patch bank containing 100 preset sounds.

I like the sound a lot. I think I have found more use for this in lofi / ambient / electronic tracks than anything. Whatever the intended use, this is great.

One of the best free vst's for using plucked strings. Nice and usable presets, great sound and easy settings...

This is really nice. I have yet to try it out to get guitar like sounds, but with a little bit of experimenting I made a really nice sounding synth chord progression.

It is flexible and has very nice, warm sound. on slower machines (like mine:) can be pretty CPU-consumpting, though.

The Richman series from Krakli is one of the best. I would recommend that you download the RMXL from Ian's website and go to the Himalaya link and get the soundbanks. Ian also has two other synths built on the Richman platform: RMP2 and the K700(R.I.P.) which are both excellent, but a little heavier on CPU. I am very picky about sound and this series and a few others(Synth1,Oatmeal,Superwave,Bloo,Ugo,Tyrell Nexus,KXOmni600) are the closest you will get to real synth sound out of a computer for free! If you are blessed with unlimited funds, go for Dune, Sylenth, or Albino III.If you are really blessed, then buy the real thing...but who wants that when you can just buy a new, faster computer and your instruments last (presumably)forever.

Especially the harp and bell likes sound very nice. If you spend a little time on editing you can get absolutely great results with that one. Like.

Lejos el mejor vst que se puede usar para todo tipo de pads, leads, no solo guitarra. Poderoso! Makes and midi sound impressive.
