Audio Plugin Deals has published a walkthrough video of the AcousticSamples 4-in-1 Guitar Bundle, in which Brian of APD takes a look at all four virtual electric and acoustic guitar instruments for the free UVI Workstation.
Strategy (Fender Stratocaster)
This guitar is, hands down, the most iconic and recognizable guitar in rock and roll history. We all know the body style and tone of this legendary guitar, and it’s been put to good use by so many stars over the years (Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Eric Clapton, Buddy Guy, Jeff Beck, Yngwie Malmsteen, John Mayer the list goes on and on…)
This guitar uses three single coil pickups to get it’s classic blues and rock tone, and excels at both clean and overdriven sounds. The tone of this guitar is painstakingly recreated with the Strategy library, and includes multiple presets to load up and get a perfect tone in seconds, not to mention the various patterns and effects that can be chained together to create your own unique tone. This guitar can be used for practically ANY genre, from classic rock, to modern pop music.
Telematic (Fender Telecaster)
This guitar is older than the Stratocaster, but not quite as popular. It offers a more simple approach with only two single coil pickups, and is the most widely used electric guitar in country music.
The bridge pickup offers that famous country twang we are all familiar with, and the neck pickup is incredibly warm and excels at everything from jazz to pop music. Famous Telecaster players include Keith Richards, Jimmy Page, Joe Strummer (The Clash), Brad Paisley, Jim Burton, Roy Buchanan, Danny Gatton, and many, many more. While not as widely known and recognized as the Stratocaster, this is my personal favorite Fender guitar!
Sunbird (1962 Gibson Hummingbird Acoustic)
This guitar was created by Gibson, and is a larger dreadnought body style, which provides a deeper tone than other acoustic guitar designs.
The Hummingbird model can be heard on many Rolling Stones records throughout their career, and provides one of the most acclaimed acoustic guitar tones in history. A great choice for classic rock, ballads, and since it provides the perfect range of tones to accompany the human voice, it’s perfect for soloists or singer/songwriters as well!
GD-6 (Guild D-40 custom edition acoustic electric)
This is a more modern and well rounded acoustic guitar sound, from the acclaimed guitar builders at Guild Guitars.
It has a beautiful, warm tone, and is deeply sampled, like all the others, with chords, strumming patterns and arpeggios, up-strokes and down-strokes, and each note sampled on multiple strings, as well as multiple mic setups and effects. This library sounds amazing for modern or contemporary rock, pop, and any track that calls for a smooth and realistic acoustic guitar tone!
All of the libraries are included in the bundle sale for only $99.99 USD, and you can also get GD-6, Strategy and Sunbird for $64.99 USD each during the promotion.
The offer expires April 3rd.
