The user interface is extremely easy to use. Everything is there for anyone who wants to tweak the sound, the ADSR is most useful to giving the basses more release.
The sounds are astoudingly high quality. The spanish guitar and the basses are the best of them, the overall sound quality is extraodinarily high. The whole range is covered, from acoustic nylon to electric strats and basses, even with vibrato!
The number of features are too many to list, but overall there is a great number of features that can be tweaked to your satisfaction, the filters are brilliant and you can mess around with the ADSR which can give you just the right type of music you are after.
Documentation is good, it's merely a reference for the presets and for dummies to get started.
The number of presets is unbelievable, with everything covered in the guitar department. There is no excuse for not being able to find a good guitar sound if you've got this sound module, everything is covered from acoustics to electrics and basses and even ethnic fretted instruments like a Celtic guitar and Historical luth and of course Banjos and harps. Absolutely terrific!
Customer support is good, but it's not really necessary with this sound module. It's so easy to use that any need for customer support would be negligible.
Overall, the value for money is incredible, you have just about every guitar sound you could want in your songs, and for a very, very neat price. I paid $175 in Australia for my copy, but I'm very satisfied, and even at that price it is still very good value. In a nutshell, it's a collection of the best guitar sounds for the money that you'll ever get at the moment.
Plugsound is very stable, and has never crashed, not even once.
This is a sound module that you simply cannot do without. You really need this if you are serious about using quality guitar sounds in your songs. It is most definately a key buy.Read more

My first thought on going through this collection is how inspiring the sounds are. The spanish guitar, the dobro slides, the west indies bass, they all make me want to write a song with them. And even from a keyboard controller they sound pretty easily like a guitar.
There is a good collection of instruments here. Acoustic and electric guitars and basses, harps, and a bunch of ethnic instruments. In each category more than one instrument: a Strat and a Les Paul (extensively, a bit less ES); a Guild and a Martin; a concert harp and a celtc harp. The fact that there are 256 banks is a slightly too optimistic view of things: for instance the three Dobro banks are straight, slide, and velocity switching btween the two. Count it however you want.
The Plugsound interface has a filter and an ADSR envelope, but with acoustic samples as good sounding as these, who cares.
In all, I'm very pleased with this plugin. If you can get it on sale ($60 at Big Fish Audio) it is an absolute steal, but even for a few pennies more it's a good deal.
Native AU version on OS X. Yeeha.Read more
