Has anyone bought Acou6tics yet?

I can't seem to find any reviews of it.

Looking for opinions from actual owners/users...

Finally found a review of it. They call it a review, but it doesn't say much.

Computer Music Magazine 9/10

Vir2
Acou6tics

The long-awaited follow-up to Vir2's Electri6ity (Computer Music #159, 9/10) packs six acoustic guitars into an 11GB compressed Kontakt library. The guitars are steel-string (plectrum and finger), 12-string, mandolin, guitalele (plectrum), nylon-string and ukulele (finger). Each one boasts at least 12 articulations (hammer-on, pull-off, sustains, numerous slides and releases, etc), every one accessible by all strings on all frets. Chords are automatically detected and converted into up to 50 selectable voicings on the fly, and custom voicing libraries can be saved and recalled. The amount of tweakability and performance/behaviour editing on offer is staggering, although the consequential onslaught of samey-looking menus can feel a bit overwhelming at times. As Electri6ity users would expect, the sound is pretty much flawless. Bone dry raw samples (recorded via Blumlein pair and piezo mic) capture the essence of the Acou6tics' six guitars to a T, ripe for processing via the onboard effects. A thing of beauty.


Anyone using it yet? Thoughts/opinions?

Thanks Benjamin. Bought it awhile back and will have time to dive into it soon.

Please post back when someone does an in-depth review.
