Is it possible to generate the sound of a ukulele strumming chords?

I don't know about the PRS-S970 but on the T5 under Echo/Harmony it has strum in the list of options

Many thanks for the idea. I'm sure the answer is there somewhere.

Under Function Key/Harmony Arpeggio
Category Harmony Type Strum

This gives me a picture of what I want, but I don't know how to apply it. I've tried to apply it to an Steel Guitar, but how to make it Strum, I'm puzzled.

I have the strumming option on the S770.
When I get back home I'll test it and let you know.

I'm not sure what usage you need, but in the Hawaiian style there is a ukulele. Depending on your need, other instruments can be reduced or turned off. Because I was a ukulele freak as a kid, I always turn the uke volume up.

Thereís a very good uke, and a banjo. I just thought it might be easier to find out how to strum by using a guitar. But I couldnít.

Surely someone out there knows if itís possible to play a chord and get the sound of a guitar/banjo/ukulele strumming?

I'm away from the keyboard at present so can't experiment. If the Strum harmony is not working for you isn't it possible to change speed etc in the Harmony settings? If it is not possible to get a credible strum sound that way can you use a suitable style with a strumming part say chd1, turn up the volume of that part and play LH chords to move the strums around appropriately?
Other than that can't you do it manually? Put say a guitar or similar in the left hand voice and play it with more rapid strumming chords yourself (instead of the usual smooth chord progressions). The style will continue to provide appropriate bass and accomp.

I was hoping that there might be some way of using the Live Control feature to control the strumming speed while playing a chord, similar to that whereby we can control arpeggios.

I couldn't play repeated chords at the speed that I can play them on my ukulele. A straight chord is not the same sound as the rapid "glissando" of a guitar/ukulele strum.

Your suggestion of finding a suitable strumming part from a style, changing the instrument to a uke, and playing the chords (or using the ACMP) with the left hand is showing promise. Thank you.
