Cinematic acoustics is a sample library with a beautiful hall type feeling and it comes in a bundle, Cinematic guitar, and Cinematic ukulele. Both sounds are equally beautiful and unique and share the same effects hence they are both of the guitar fam.
I recorded both sound libraries with my phone, then I processed them true Logic Pro and made these extraordinary samples.
I hope you enjoy this library to the fullest and I would love to hear some feedback.

Nice, but I hear some noise..?
Both Cinematic guitar and ukulele sound very nice. However, not sure if it is intentional but I hear some noise with the instrument which makes it difficult for me to blend with other instruments.
Interesting but not for me
Although these sound have some nice controllability and can sound pretty nice and ambient depending on how they are processed as i guitar player i dont like sample instruments meant to replicate playing melodies on the guitar, they always sound like a harpsichord to me. So the guitar isn't useful for me. The Ukulele since its so stretched out acctually kind of resembles an organic synth which is find to be pretty cool and fun
Good cinematic plucks
The sound of the guitar is nice, although it doesn't immediately sound like your average guitar. Same thing goes with the ukulele, and I find it a little more fitting for my tastes. The sampling is good, and you can achieve a few different kinds of ambiences with the two controls provided. The included reverb setting because it can increase the overall instrument volume by a lot, so keep that in mind. Also, while the GUI has nice aesthetics, everything seem to work completely backwards. It works though, so you might just have to get used to that.
There's a little bit of noise in the samples, but it's generally not too much where they are unusable. The GUI is well designed, and it's interesting that the knobs spin backwards value of 1 when all the way turned and value of 100 when not turned at all. Not sure if this was intentional, but it might be worth switching just for consistency with other instruments and what composers are used to. I would love to hear some more articulations such as strums or muted plucks, but that's just me being picky. Overall great job!
Ukulele and acoustic guitar
This library doesn't have any round robins, nor any different velocity layers, so it's somewhat static. The guitar sound has three zones which are fairly well matched timbrally. All of the samples have noticeable noise, but it's most present in the middle zone. The ukulele sound has only a single sample which has been stretched over the entire range of the instrument. It's not necessarily a bad thing, but I don't know that I would have guessed that a ukulele was the source of the samples, because after the stretching the character of the instrument is more or less completely lost. As other reviewers have noted, the knobs on the GUI seem to respond in a retrograde fashion.
