American Acoustic

Take control of the warmth, detail and nuance of one of the most popular American-made acoustic guitars of all time

American Acoustic is the latest audiophile-grade SampleTank 3 instruments collection. We searched high and low to track down an exceptionally great sounding vintage Martin® D28* with its famous spruce top and mahogany neck. It’s hard to find a bad sounding guitar of this model, but we wanted the very best one we could get. We then recorded the guitar in our IK studios in Modena, Italy using the best microphones, preamps and converters available for the project. We tried many vintage and classic mics and preamps, but the best result came from a super-clean modern pairing of a Schoeps® CMC* small diaphragm condenser microphone and a Prism® Orpheus* preamp / interface.

 

We recorded the instrument many times using different techniques to find just the right approach. The actual notes themselves had to be performed in a very specific way that when translated to the keyboard or in MIDI patterns still sounded like an amazing acoustic guitar played by a great guitarist. We always kept the top priority of making a true “musical” instrument and not just a perfect recording. The result is a spectacularly natural sounding instrument made for music.

American Acoustic is a comprehensive library of acoustic guitar sounds, with a huge selection of instruments that cover every method of playing from flatpicking, fingerstyle, strumming and beyond. You can even add additional effects like slides and harmonics.

 

American Acoustic also includes a generous selection of patterns using different articulations including strumming techniques.

Combine this versatility with its number of ensemble and experimental combo instruments, and you have an instrument that's a perfect fit for Pop, Rock, Folk, Country, Hip-Hop, R&B and even EDM. Now, no matter what genre you favor, you can have great sounding acoustic guitars at the touch of a button.

American Acoustic. The latest audiophile-grade SampleTank 3 instrument is available in the IK store or in SampleTank 3's Custom Shop. From IK Multimedia.
