Of all my instruments, this one I am probably most attached to. They only made 250 of these Martins. After playing about 20 models I heard this one, and grabbed it! It has a warm rich tone, so I thought I’d try and sample it. I recorded it through an Avalon 737 Pre , using an AKG 414 . I compressed a little with a Universal Audio 1176. I also included a version that doubles each string (not octaves). It has a little bit of a Bouzouki vibe which I thought was kind of cool. And last I made a pad from the guitar using some reverses and the new FREE Vahalla SuperMassive Reverb/Delay. A special shout out to Dave Hilowitz for sharing his “Random No Repeat” Kontakt script on his awesome Youtube channel!
Leave a review to let others know what you thought of the instrument!
In recent months I’ve tried a few VST acoustic guitars and this is by far the best of them – more character, more realism and more capable of cutting through other instruments in the mix. I found the sounds so inspiring I came up with a basic chord progression in a couple of minutes and just had to get it down before I forgot it. I can’t afford a real acoustic, let alone a limited-edition Martin, so I can see myself coming back to this one over and over again.
Possibly the best pad in piano book-town
Absolutely lovely guitar samples, great for demoing up ideas to be replaced by a real live player. I would always prefer much much quieter levels than this (where the magic happens) but this is a great instrument if you really want it to cut into your foreground.
HOWEVER… and its a big however, the pad patch Joshua has made is sublime, one of the best on the site and one I’m gonna be using on lots of projects! THANK YOU JOSHUA!!!
