    A delicate steel string guitar

    A beautifully recorded, meticulously crafted acoustic guitar with emphasis on the soft and delicate.

    Recorded at Spitfire HQ with a pair of vintage Neumann U87’s, MG Soft Acoustic Guitar brings the soft sweet tone of a Martin J-40 steel string acoustic guitar, featuring various playing modes including a feature-rich chord / strum system and a fully customisable step sequencer plus a MIDI Drag and Drop feature. With deep sampling covering all guitar-related articulations including mutes, harmonics, slides, slurs, vibrato and string/body hits.

    Recorded and scripted from the ground-up by composer and virtuoso guitarist Mike Georgiades, this guitar aims to set a new standard for virtual guitar libraries, offering a remarkably authentic sound out of the box, and helping to demystify the workings of the guitar for non-guitarists.

    Sequencer Mode features a fully customisable 4-bank 32-step (max) sequencer. Users can load and edit preset sequences, or create their own from scratch and save it. Each step of the sequence can be edited to alter the played string(s), articulation, pick/strum direction and volume. A very useful additional feature is the ability to record MIDI information and drag/drop the recording to DAW.
