Acou6tics from Big Fish Audio is a virtual acoustic instrument comprising six different acoustic instruments - a steel-string guitar, twelve-string, nylon string, ukulele, mandolin, and guitalele. It features both plectrum and finger picking, and Blumlein stereo recordings alongside a piezo pickup perspective.
Thousands of samples across more than a dozen articulations were recorded for each instrument, including sustains, mutes, releases, legatos, hammer-ons and pull-offs, slides, harmonics, and effects. Virtual room control is also featured with adjustable microphone distance and sympathetic resonance.
The instrument's interface is very easy to navigate with four dedicated pages - playback, key switches, chords, and microphones and FX.
Steel-string (plectrum and finger picked)
Nylon String (finger picked and finger nail picked)
Ukulele (finger picked and finger nail picked)

Special recording process to minimize room tone while keeping the natural tone of the instrument, leading to a completely dry, yet natural sounding guitar
