The GD-6 Acoustic Guitar is based on a Guild D-40 custom edition electro-acoustic guitar.

It was recorded using the built-in pickup and a pair of microphones, and was sampled in immense detail; we captured all frets of all strings with upstrokes, downstrokes, round robins, releases, staccatos, mutes, palm mutes, hand blocks, slides, hammer ons, pull offs, retriggers, fret noises, percussions and more. All of these details enable users to accurately and easily reproduce the real playing of a guitar player.

There are 4 modes for playing:

1. The Solo mode (for free playing, melodies etc)
2. The Chord mode (to aid strums and picks)
3. The Patterns mode (automatic strumming & picking)
4. MIDI mode (for any MIDI guitar controllers).

These modes can be selected via the use of keyswitches, or by simply clicking and dragging the dial on the interface.


Strumming machine

The GD-6 acoustic guitar can strum, in various ways, up, down, muted, in legato and allows picking. Everything is modeled after meticulously analyzing thousands of real chords played by guitarist. Every aspect of the strumming engine can be tweaked to achieve the sound you want.

The chord recognition engine helps converting any chord you play on your keyboard to a real guitar voicing. Recognizing a chord is made through a database of thousands of standard chords, and you can edit every chord or even add new ones.

The chord hammers feature lets you play left hand hammer ons and pull offs while strumming or picking.

Realistic patterns

The patterns mode is very similar to the chord mode, the chord recognition engine works the same way, but this time the triggers are not simple strums anymore, they are a set of patterns that you can loop, adapt to the tempo or the metrics, change the velocity in real time using a controller, synch to your host, add groove to.

You can choose from a large selection of patterns or create your using the pattern maker and assign them to each trigger to create a full song in a few clicks.

Pattern Maker

Creating realistic guitar patterns has never been easier. You can create strumming and picking patterns in seconds and even make them of an infinite size.

We even made the sharing of these patterns easy, just save them and send them to other users, the database can only grow!
Make sure that you check the patter maker video from the Sunbird library to get an idea of how it works.

Song Builder

The song builder panel is the feature that will let you compose songs extremely quickly. Sometimes playing a series of chords can be complicated, especially if you are not an advanced keyboardist. The song builder allows you to decide which chord will be triggered when selecting only one note. For example pressing only the C will be recognized as a C Major. You can repeat the operation for the whole 12 notes of the octave and this way construct your songs and play them easily.

We included a selection of presets to give song ideas, chord progressions, modes or chord types.

Combine this with the patterns and pressing two keys at the same time is enough to play a song.

Solo mode, automatic hand position

The solo mode is very simple, and is suited to play melodies. It uses a smart hand position system that decides for you where a real guitarist would put his hand and which string he would play. A piano only has one middle C for example, but a guitar offers a few different options and our script will decide it for you. You can of course deactivate it and use only the first hand position if you want.

The GD-6 acoustic guitar features our powerful legato engine that will automatically trigger legato, hammer ons, pull offs, or slides and the legato distance will define the maximum interval in which the legato will apply.

You also have access to key switches to play palm mutes, harmonics (flageolets) or even percussion sounds and control the legato engine.

Preferences / Microphone mixing

The GD-6 acoustic guitar library comes with 2 microphones perspectives, a stereo pair and the DI output and you can adjust the volume of each of them.
Every aspect of the library can be tweaked, the release, fret and pre-notes volumes, as well as the midi response of your keyboard.

A three band EQ and a reverb module can be adjusted from the preferences panel, and you can enable and load/unload the pickup or the microphones.

MIDI guitar

If you own a MIDI guitar and want to expand its sound capabilities, then the MIDI mode is for you, all you need to do is select the 7 different MIDI chanels your guitar outputs and you are ready to play.

I am an owner of one the acoustic guitar products sold by acoustic samples. While the samples are excellent , so are the demos , I really find it hard to create the same level of demos that are advertised. I would really appreciate if acoustic samples also provides demo MIDI files so users can get to know how to use these instruments HANDS ON .

love this software. great detail, wonderfully overtones and a wealth of features that I haven't begun to master yet. if you are looking to add acoustic guitar backing tracks using your keyboard, you can't do much better than the GD6. It has a clean but warm tone that should be useful in just about any genre of music. I only wish piano vet's could sound as realistic as the GD 6.

Great, natural sound. A wealth of options. However, there is one thing that bothers me. When you are basically a keyboard player and have selected Solo mode, you sometimes tend to go too low on the keyboard with your left hand. If those keys (D1 and below) were silent, it wouldn't matter much. But all too often I hit the D1 or C1 key and as a result get an unwanted percussion sound. This is even more accentuated by the fact that there is no barrier between the lowest normal key (E1) and the highest percussion key (D1). I think it would be a great improvement if those special percussion keys optionally could be disabled in Solo mode. Still, it is a rock solid piece of software.

I let me be the first to review GD 6. ITS GREAT! THE BEST ON THE MARKET! I own several acoustic guitar programs and GD 6 is the most realistic, I have found. The samples are extremely clear. The picking/strumming loops begin and fade seamlessly. The song writing and pattern mode are more than enough to get you started. Using GD 6 with your DAW effortless. Combing GD 6 with other guitar programs will only enhance the creative and musical production you are trying to create. I brought GD 6 last night and I've been working with it all day. Don't waste your money on cheaper samples and loops. This is the best BANG for the BUCK. TMWISE - Producer/Artist
