Acoustic Revolutions 3: the ultimate acoustic guitar rhythm library

Acoustic Revolutions 3:
The Easiest Way to Create Acoustic Guitar Tracks

We are extremely proud to present Acoustic Revolutions 3by far our most comprehensive acoustic guitar rhythm instrument! With over 10x the content of the first two volumes combined (all-new), AR3 gives you everything you need to write great acoustic guitar backing tracks in a single virtual instrument.

The library features nearly 15,000 acoustic guitar rhythm samples covering 48 unique rhythms in multiple tempos, variations, time signatures, and 12 chord types total. Everything is carefully edited for looped playback. 

Our new rhythm-based Kontakt engine allows you to perform patterns simply by playing the chord type you want; our Intelligent Detection does the rest. Seamlessly switch rhythms or chords mid-playback, all synced to host tempo. Or, mix and match custom keyswitches that fit your workflow.

Whether you're writing an entire rhythm track from scratch or adding acoustic guitar to an existing track, we think you'll find Acoustic Revolutions 3extremely versatile and easy to use. And if you prefer not to use Kontakt, no problem: all the loops are available in WAV too.

Acoustic Revolutions 3 is available now for $99, including Kontakt 5.5 (full version) and WAV versions. If you own either of the first two Acoustic Revolutions libraries, visit your Account area for a crossgrade discount!

I have part 1 and love it. There’s a $20 off voucher waiting in your account if you have 1 or 2.

Thanks Fleer, good to hear some feedback. The YouTube video has got me interested in this. 
 
I don't have AR1 or 2 but I'm looking into using my APD credit to buy a $50 ISW voucher to reduce the cost to $49.

Acoustic Revolutions 3 is available now for $99, including Kontakt 5.5 (full version) and WAV versions. 

 
When I saw this, I thought it meant that Kontakt 5.5 was included in the price. On going to the site, I saw that it is not.
I just wanted to clarify this for anyone else who might make that mistake. You will need to already have Kontakt full version to use it.

I watched the demo, but I need more info (or need to read a few reviews) before I would consider this. 
I hope the strums have names or a style description, not just numbers... And a full list of the strum patterns would be useful.   I looked in the manual but nada.

Does APD allow you to use your credit to buy the full voucher?  The ISW voucher has a "base" price of $30, so I was concerned that you could only use your credit to drop the price to $30.

Never noticed that but APD have confirmed that I can purchase a ISW $50 voucher and use it to buy AR3 from ISW website.

I guess your APD credits bring the voucher price down to that $30 base price, which you’ll have to pay.

That's what I'm thinking.  So, essentially, you have to pay $30 for the voucher and then $50 extra dollars at ISW...for a total of $80.

So I bought Impact Soundworks Acoustic Revolutions 3 because I needed yet another strumming instrument. I like it but it takes a really long time to load in Kontakt, two or  maybe three minutes at times. If you click anywhere while it's loading it will crash your project. Anyway, that's been my experience.

I don't have this so I can't comment specifically but have you done a batch resave on it, this often solves this sort of issue.

My initial thoughts of Acoustic Revolutions 3.
First, I should point out that I have WAY more virtual guitars than I really need, but each one usually has something unique to offer.  A quick rundown on most of my guitar samplers are: MusicLabs Real Guitars (all of them), Orange Tree Samples -Evolution Series (12 of them), Scarbee Funk Guitarist and Strummed Acoustic 2, Indiginus guitars (including the new Renegade Acoustic).  That last one is where I should have stopped. 

I like the amount and variety of strums that come with Acoustic Revolutions 3. Strums come in 4/4, 3/4, and 6/8.
But I'm not happy with the sampled chords.  Using the built in FX, such as Chorus or Reverb, tends to leave unnatural sounding artifacts.  The compressor seems okay though. (I haven't tried using external plugin fx with it yet)
But even with all the FX turned off, there is something that doesn't sound right when playing various chords.
It sounds like they weren't sampled very well or very consistently.  When switching chords you can hear an audible shift in the EQ from chord to chord.

I didn't download the optional WAV files, although I'm not sure what they are for, or if they replace the existing sampled chords with a higher quality sample.  But at over 8GB for the initial samples, I didn't want to fill up anymore space on my hard drive.

So, to sum up, I like the amount and variety of strum patterns, but I'm not at all happy with the overall sound.
If you're looking for a great sounding acoustic guitar, that you can strum AND solo single notes (along with many articulations like trills, hammer-ons, up and down slides, etc.) I would suggest Indiginus new Renegade Acoustic, for about $40 cheaper.  The sampling quality is much better, but not as many strum patterns.
I will continue to use AR3 for it's strum patterns, and try running it through a guitar fx plugin like TH3 or Guitar Rig and see if that helps.

Thanks for reading!

Follow up on my previous review.
I might have been a bit too harsh when it came to reviewing the sampled chord sounds of this product.
I've been playing with it more today, and if I keep all the fx turned off, with the Fret Noise volume turned down, the samples really don't sound that horrible. Even though most of my other virtual guitars do sound better, on it's own the Acoustic Revolutions 3 does sound okay, especially within a mix of other instruments.

One of the things that was really bugging me is the Fret Noise, every so often it sounds like someone saying "Woooooh", which (with headphones on) can be kind of startling.  It also sounded a little like my dog whining outside my studio door.   So I found that turning down the fret noise, or shutting it off completely, fixes that problem.

As I mentioned, I really do like the strum patterns, but as someone asked in a previous comment, No, they are not named anything useful.  They are just simply numbered "Rhythm 1" through 48.  But when you select a strum pattern you can see a visually representation of the pattern at the top of the UI.  That does somewhat help identify the kind of strum you can expect to hear.

Hi Lee, since you have the OTS Evolution Series already, can I ask how come you also bought guitar strumming virtual instruments like the "NI Strummed Acoustic 2" and the "ISW Acoustic Revolutions 3"?  I think you can create any strumming patterns you want with the OTS Evolution Series, right?  Thanks a lot.

Does anyone have an opinion as to how Acoustic Revolutions 3 this compares to either NI Strummed Acoustic or UJAM Virtual Guitarist Amber (I have both of these)?
 
I've got Impact Soundworks Shreddage 2, which is fantastic so I'm of no doubt that Acoustic Revolutions 3 is a great VSTi.
 
From listening to the demos though, I'm struggling to see how this would give me any more than what I've already got.

I have also got NI Strummed Acoustic.  It has 102 strumming patterns and also not restricted to the 12 provided chords like the AR3 does.  It seems the AR3 is kind of redundant for any NI Strummed Acoustic owner.  Lee has both and the OTS guitar series as well.  It would be great if he can chip in a bit about this topic.

If I'm looking for acoustic strumming, then I'm heading for Pettinhouse's Acoustic Guitar 3.0.  Great sound and flat out simple strum engine.  Honestly, OTS acoustics are just okay for me in the area of strumming.  To me, they tend to sound "thin" relative to other acoustics.
 
Note that Pettinhouse's strum requires you to be able to at least play some chords on the keyboard.  If you feel unsure about that, though, the Kontakt instrument has a tab with keyboard diagrams showing you what to press for popular chords (which you can then transpose in your DAW).

Thanks for info, but I can only find AcousticGuitar 2.0 in the Pettinghouse website, no 3.0 there.
 
In your opinion, do I need the Impact Soundworks Acoustic Revolutions 3 ($39.99) or Pettinghouse AcousticGuitar 2.0 ($69) if I already own NI Strummed Acoustic and NI Strummed Acoustic 2?  Are they absolutely redundant to what I have already owned, or do they compliment each other really well?  There are a total of 265 strumming patterns altogether in NI SA1 & SA2 already, thanks.

Acoustic Guitar 2.0 is the one I'm talking about.  Their electric guitar (Direct Guitar) is the one at version 3.0. My bad.
 
The Pettinhouse guitar is much more flexible than the strummed acoustics and the acoustic revolutions. In the Pettinhouse guitar, you have a "strum" page with vertical bars that you can adjust to put a strum of any type on any beat you want.  So you can build your own strum patterns and save them rather than using only the ones supplied.  Additionally, the Pettinhouse allows you to play the notes you want strummed so you can play traditional chords, you can play chords in any inversion (which some strum products like Ujam's do not allow), and you can play any odd ball chords you want.  So, the Pettinhouse one is all about maximum flexibility relative to the other strum products. 
 
That being said, that may be *too* much flexibility for some.  If that sounds like too much, then keep using the Strummed Acoustics.  They sound good.  I don't own Acoustic Revolutions so I can't say if that one is better or worse than the NI products.

A quick question, what time signatures are supported by the Pettinghouse strum sequencer. OTS won't do 9/8 and many others are limited to 4/4 and 3/4.

For the Pettinhouse sequencer, essentially, you tell it how many steps you want in the step sequencer (from 1 to 32) and then you tell it the rate you wish to go through the steps of sequence (with choices of: 1/128, 1/64, 1/32, 1/16T, 3/64, 1/16, 1/8 T, 3/32, 1/8, 1/4 T, 3/16, 1/4, 1/2 T, 3/8, 1/2, 3/4, 4/4, Bar).  
 
You also have a swing control.  
 
The .nki has 25 preset slots for the sequencer and you can MIDI map the knob.  Each preset can have different settings for the sequencer, so with that you could likely do some pretty unusual time signatures by switching sequencer patterns although I haven't put it through the paces myself.

Hi Lee, since you have the OTS Evolution Series already, can I ask how come you also bought guitar strumming virtual instruments like the "NI Strummed Acoustic 2" and the "ISW Acoustic Revolutions 3"?  I think you can create any strumming patterns you want with the OTS Evolution Series, right?  Thanks a lot.


Hi arznable,
Sorry for the delay in responding, I only visit this forum a few times each month.
So why did I buy more strumming guitars since I have so many already?  Well, first of all, I'm a bit of a software junkie.  If it's new, and I can afford it, I'll tend to buy it.  Every virtual guitar plugin has something unique to offer, even if it's different strumming patterns.  And that was my main reason for buying more.  Even though MusicLab's RealGuitars have tons of strumming patterns, I find that more that 3/4 of them I won't use because they either don't sound good, or don't fit the music I'm writing.  (I write mostly classic Rock type songs and alt-Rock too)
So I was attracted to AR3's new variety of strumming patterns.
But with so many DAW software purchases, many times I end up with "buyer's remorse".
I hope that answers your questions.
