NATIVE INSTRUMENTS STRUMMED ACOUSTIC 2
Native Instruments Strummed Acoustic 2 is out now, and it joins the Session Guitarist series to complement the original Strummed Acoustic instrument. The new version brings samples of two vintage acoustic guitars — a six-string Martin and 12-string Guild — plus more strummed patterns and new performance controls. Strummed Acoustic 2 runs in Kontakt and the free Kontakt 5 Player.
There’s a nice contrast between the two guitars. The Martin produces the warm, mellow tones of a mahogany body from an instrument that was originally built in 1934. The jumbo 12-string Guild, produced in the late 1960s, delivers a more full, bright and articulate sound. The new ‘Separate Bass’ feature lets you add custom bass lines or add extra low notes to chords to create slash chords. And with Tap Rhythm Finder, you can dictate the groove of a strum pattern by tapping it into your keyboard. Strummed Acoustic 2 adds over 50% more content than the original.
The instrument is available now on the NI online store.
