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.

American Acoustic for SampleTank 3

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.
