The story

To be clear this is not intended to be a realistic acoustic guitar. Its sound ranges from 90s video games, to very strange and moody, to vaguely like the original guitar. This was made by running some recordings of my acoustic guitar with flatwound electric guitar strings through Chipsynth SFC which emulates the Super Nintendo’s sound chip. The sound chip of this legendary video game console only had 64 kbs of RAM to work with so samples had to be very small files and therefore very lofi. It’s a sound that many people are nostalgic for and even if you aren’t, I hope you still find some interesting use for it.


Clean: Volume for the highest quality samples I could get (Brighter, more “hifi”)
Decimate: Volume of lower quality samples with a little grit on them (Darker, more “lofi”)
Attack: controls attack time (very useful)
Clean Echo: Echo volume from higher quality samples (emulated echo from Chipsynth SFC)
Decimate Echo: Echo volume from lower quality samples (darker emulated echo from Chipsynth SFC)
Reverb: PS1’s hall reverb from Shiroban
Mod wheel: controls modulation


Fingers: picked with my fingers
Pick: picked with a guitar pick
Fingers_Harmonic: guitar harmonic at the 12th fret played with fingers
Pick_Harmonic: guitar harmonic at the 12th fret played with a guitar pick

Note on the echo: While the echo sounds like the original Super Nintendo to me and I personally like the settings they are at, I unfortunately can’t make the echo customizable to you. If you want to tweak it I would recommend using a different plugin to emulate it if you want accuracy or using your own delay effects if you don’t care.

Also included are the original unprocessed (except some minor noise reduction) samples to use with Chipsynth SFC or whatever else you want

  • Unique guitar sounds, well-sampled and highly-playable

    These guitars sound all really nice and unique, they are a bit unusual, but definitely in a good way. They are highly playable and feel very natural.

    Overall, a super useful instrument with a bunch of nice-sounding patches. Good stuff!!

  • Retro

    Sounds almost like an amazing guitar tone from an old casio keyboard, very unique and not guitar like. Cool work.

  • Retro-style guitars

    As the description suggests, this instument bundle features a guitar sound signature that is modified to sound more "digital" from a different era, and it succeeds without having to read the description.

    There are 7 patches of similar nature, with each one bringing something slightly different to the game. For my taste, the sounds could be a little more hi-fi, but still I haven't found a similar style for a guitar in Pianobook.
