Musikmesse 2014: Vir2 releases Acou6tics for Kontakt Player







Vir2 has released Acou6tics, a Kontakt instrument that "re-imagines the acoustic guitar".

It features both plectrum and finger picking, and Blumlein stereo recordings alongside the piezo pickup perspective. Thousands of samples across more than a dozen articulations were recorded for each instrument, including sustains, mutes, releases, legatos, hammer-ons and pull-offs, slides, harmonics, and effects.
