In the words of the immortal Bart or was it Michelangelo, Cowabunga Dude! That is an amazing set of instruments you guys have put together. I can't afford it until my next reincarnation, but I hope it sells well for you. Definitely job well done.

I am also delighted to finally find a detailed 12-string guitar!

Question:
The description of the guitars states that there are "Between 4000 and 8000 samples per instrument", and that
"All guitars are recorded with stereo micing plus additional piezo DI channel". Does this mean that the stereo mic and the DI channel each has between 2000 and 4000 samples per guitar?

If you are planning on doing some additional demos, it would be great if you could do a mockup of Albeniz's Asturias with the nylon guitar. I regard Asturias as a gold standard for testing the realism of mockups of the classical guitar repertoire (especially fast round robins).

Yes, that's correct. But the number isn't fully correct, some instruments have up to 10.000 samples.

Regarding a test for realism: Check out these two new Vir2 Acou6tics demos - made with the 1.1 update which will be released soon. It's an incredibly detailed mockup of Baden Powell's Solitude On Guitar by Przemyslaw Kopczyk. The background hiss/ambience you hear, by the way, is added as an effect to mimic the original recording even more.

Hey Everybody we have a new demo we'd like to share with this video of a cover of "Solitude on Guitar" as performed by Przemyslaw Kopczyk. This piece uses the Nylon String patch in Acou6tics. The video covers finger picking playing and nail picking playing styles. At about 1 minute the video switches to show nail picking and then back again to finger picking at around the 2:25 mark. Enjoy!

is this instrument capable of playing something in a sensitive manner? All of the demos are fine but they are all fairly aggressive from a velocity standpoint and sound overcompressed to my ears. I am very interested in this and own Electri6ity, but I really need to know that these instruments have adequate low velocity samples and that they are used appropriately. So far, the demos don't show that to me.

Any chance of hearing something more soundtrack oriented or solo classical guitar oriented? Is that not a segment this instrument is meant to address?

Thanks for any assistance or demos that can be provided!!

This has been out awhile and I still can't seem to find any reviews for it.
Please post any links here if you have them. Thanks

Vir2 seems to have a fairly expensive pricing structure for some of their more attractive offerings. I imagine they are worth the money but at the same time wonder how many sales they generate with those prices.

Kirk Hunter revamped his whole pricing structure for his high-end libraries to attract a wider user-base. Same libraries for a lot less. I wonder if Vir2 would benefit from such a change also.
