EXPAND YOUR ACOUSTIC HORIZONS
The second edition in the SESSION GUITARIST series, STRUMMED ACOUSTIC 2, expands your sound palette with two carefully selected vintage acoustic guitars, an extensive library of patterns and chords, plus real-time performance control.
Signature guitars played by skilled session pros
SESSION GUITARIST – STRUMMED ACOUSTIC 2 includes two renowned instruments, played by skilled session pros. Choose a coveted vintage Martin 0-17 from 1934 – a small-bodied mahogany 6-string with a warm, mellow tone. Or select the full yet articulate sound of the Guild F-412 12-string – a jumbo model first produced in the late 1960s, and now a benchmark for 12-strings.
A range of real-time performance controls puts the musicality of skilled session musicians at your fingertips. Play chords from your keyboard or choose the auto-chord feature. Use key switches, the mod wheel, and the pitch wheel to quickly change rhythms, crossfade chord voicings, and add accents as you build your arrangement. Season the mix with built-in effects.
Draw from a wealth of dynamic strumming patterns with accent variations perfect for rock, folk, country, bluegrass, Latin, pop, and more. Each pattern can be played intuitively using a virtually endless number of chords in multiple positions up and down the neck. Choose from numerous song presets, customize pattern collections, and smoothly switch among those patterns as you play.
Play custom bass lines or add extra notes to chords with the new Separate Bass patterns, and spice up your playing for country, bluegrass, folk, and more.
TAP RHYTHM FINDER

Quickly customize your sound using versatile sound control features. Easily adjust the balance of high and low chord voicings.

MAKING STRUMMED ACOUSTIC 2
STRUMMED ACOUSTIC 2 was created in collaboration with drumasonic – the same award-winning sample instrument team behind the original STRUMMED ACOUSTIC. Using an array of vintage ribbon and condenser microphones plus boutique preamps, drumasonic captured every nuance of these classic acoustic instruments in perfect detail. A custom-built mounting rig and a laser-based microphone positioning system helped ensure precision and consistency for every chord and pattern.
