Session Guitar–Strummed Acoustic 2


  • Expand your acoustic collection with vintage 6- and 12-string guitars
  • Access over 160 patterns played by skilled studio musicians
  • Customize performances with chord voicings, double-tracking, and on-board effects



The second edition in the SESSION GUITARIST series, STRUMMED ACOUSTIC 2, expands your sound palette with two carefully selected vintage acoustic guitars, an extensive library of patterns and chords, plus real-time performance control.


SESSION GUITARIST – STRUMMED ACOUSTIC 2 includes two renowned instruments, played by skilled session pros. Choose a coveted vintage Martin 0-17 from 1934 – a small-bodied mahogany 6-string with a warm, mellow tone. Or select the full yet articulate sound of the Guild F-412 12-string – a jumbo model first produced in the late 1960s, and now a benchmark for 12-strings.


A range of real-time performance controls puts the musicality of skilled session musicians at your fingertips. Play chords from your keyboard or choose the auto-chord feature. Use key switches, the mod wheel, and the pitch wheel to quickly change rhythms, crossfade chord voicings, and add accents as you build your arrangement. Season the mix with built-in effects.


Draw from a wealth of dynamic strumming patterns with accent variations perfect for rock, folk, country, bluegrass, Latin, pop, and more. Each pattern can be played intuitively using a virtually endless number of chords in multiple positions up and down the neck. Choose from numerous song presets, customize pattern collections, and smoothly switch among those patterns as you play.



Play custom bass lines or add extra notes to chords with the new Separate Bass patterns, and spice up your playing for country, bluegrass, folk, and more.


Quickly find the strumming pattern you need by tapping or playing a rhythm on your keyboard. Filter the search results by musical attributes such as open or muted patterns.


Quickly customize your sound using versatile sound control features. Easily adjust the balance of high and low chord voicings. Add a doubled guitar part for extra width, and incorporate fret noise to enhance realism. Sculpt the sound and fine-tune each guitar’s placement in the mix with ready-to-use compression and EQ presets. Create space and depth with convolution reverb.


STRUMMED ACOUSTIC 2 was created in collaboration with drumasonic – the same award-winning sample instrument team behind the original STRUMMED ACOUSTIC. Using an array of vintage ribbon and condenser microphones plus boutique preamps, drumasonic captured every nuance of these classic acoustic instruments in perfect detail. A custom-built mounting rig and a laser-based microphone positioning system helped ensure precision and consistency for every chord and pattern.

La storia dei synth a portata di dita



Syntronik vanta un’innovativa tecnologia, denominata DRIFT™, che ricrea il comportamento dei veri oscillatori analogici in ambito digitale. Normalmente, i synth basati su campioni sono limitati dal fatto che l’attacco dei sample rimane sempre lo stesso, cosa che non accade nelle controparti hardware. La nostra tecnologia è in grado di variare la fase, il pitch e il “carattere” degli oscillatori, emulando la risposta dei circuiti analogici nel tempo. Il risultato è un suono sorprendentemente autentico.

    Appena rilasciata la nuova update di DOrico 1.1 !!!

    Experience the Future of Scoring in New Dorico 1.1 Update
    Steinberg releases a significant update to its new professional scoring application, introducing advanced support for chord symbols, repeat endings, note spacing and much more.


    HAMBURG, Germany — June 28, 2017 — The future of scoring gets considerably brighter today with the release of Dorico 1.1, a significant update to Steinberg’s new professional music notation software.
    Dorico is the only scoring software that musicians can compose or arrange freely into: its deep knowledge of music theory ensures the music is always clearly and correctly notated, however complex it is and whatever changes are made to it. Dorico produces beautiful sheet music by default: designed by the most experienced notation software development team, Dorico is better at music engraving than almost any human. And Dorico is the only professional scoring program with an integrated piano roll MIDI editor and support for VST Expression.
    The new Dorico 1.1 update provides a significant step forward in the application’s capability, building on the nearly 500 improvements already delivered in three previous updates since its launch in October 2016.
    The electronic press kit for Dorico 1.1 is available at:
    This release introduces sophisticated support for chord symbols. While chord symbols are added by playing a MIDI keyboard or typing on the computer, Dorico automatically writes chord symbols in any of six pre-set conventions, and lets users tweak the appearance using dozens of options. Dorico is also the only professional scorewriter to support polychords.
    Other new features in Dorico 1.1 include:
    • Piano pedaling with comprehensive support for advanced techniques — including partial pedaling, changing the pedal level over time and more;
    • New repeat ending lines for 1st and 2nd time bars, perfectly positioned;
    • Unique intelligent note spelling for MIDI step input, which automatically avoids common enharmonic errors during input;
    • Expanded editing operations, allowing users to move dynamics, slurs, hairpins, octave lines and other notations easily with the mouse, intelligently snapping them to ideal positions;
    • New selection features, allowing users to quickly select items of a certain kind for further editing;
    • Comprehensive features for precise editing of rhythmic spacing, designed in consultation with experienced professional engravers;
    • Expanded import and export features, allowing users to import music from other projects and MusicXML files into a current project, and export sections of a project in Dorico, MIDI, MusicXML and audio formats.
    “We are excited to be delivering the features that are most often requested by our customers in this update, and we have done our best to ensure our implementations are better and easier to use than any other software,” said Daniel Spreadbury, product marketing manager for Dorico. “Dorico is already being used by professional musicians around the world, and we expect its newly expanded capabilities to help establish it as the scorewriter of the future.”
