My goodness...
What I'm seriously curious about is: how much time was spend on programming the demo's?

the Andy McKee demo - that must have been almost as hard to program as it was to play....awesome!

Yeah, I agree, your website is confusing. It seems there is no free download for the Acoustic Guitar - just one of the electrics.

Second, I'd like to say, from the demos this product sounds great. But I am nervous about purchasing and then having to wait 24 hours before getting a keycode. Most developers give you an unlock code immediately after purchase.
Is there a reason you can't do this?

well...i ordered this and was nervous too.
It is a little different on first encounter..
The download payment option i took was paypal...
and all was fine from then on.

I notice they configure the product in some ways for the system requested...(mac 10.6 in my case)
I think their time Zone puts them way ahead of London uk.
I have already received an email from them directly requesting email address confirmation,
(as i have a different account for paypal transactions than i registered with on the site)
and am now awaiting the product email and links e.t.c

All is well so far!

So, after purchasing, did you download the product right away, or do you have to wait for an email link for the download?

after payment...there was a wait....and i was not expecting to hear from them until tomorrow really..
But they have written to me already as i explained and i am expecting an email with links e.t.c.



so no..payment does not link to any download...the download has to be emailed out to you.

and i am waiting for that...

Guys, I will be super interested to know if you get your download email links.

Frankly I think something is troubling and untrustworthy about this website.

I also don't think the demos were programmed. I've done plenty of product
demos - these sound like actual recordings being passed off as programmed
demos.

I really hope I'm wrong...

If you watch the videos, they show the full GUI as the demos roll. It would take as much work to fake it as it would to have really done it. They definitely sound programmed to me - either way, I will post once I get the link.

Nothing troubling or untrustworthy at all.
I've just finished installing the AGM, after downloading the links which arrived earlier today (I placed my order late yesterday evening).
Now it's only a matter of waiting for the Key Code to arrive, to activate the instrument (you have to send in a Challenge Code and your User ID), but there's no real hurry here because the instrument has a fully functional 7-day starter period.
Swift service, error-free download, flawless installation and, most importantly of all of course, an excellent virtual acoustic. I'm entirely happy.

Looking forward to reviews from those who purchased

Have to admit it sounds amazing. I tried to download a demo of AGG - but download fails just as it's about to finish. I also tried to watch some of the demo other videos, but all but the AGM is set to private, so no luck there either.

But I do have a feeling where I am going to spend my next $170

Yes..the servers are particularly sluggish...hardly 256 modem speed achieved to the UK?
but it will download and install fine.

This guitar does feel real..and i am actually struggling as i would on a real guitar getting to know it! (i do NOT play guitar)

I think it is very interesting...and it will take me time.

But so far i have no regrets.
I have others..and they almost bore me on first inspection...this one is not so straight forward but has a certain something, perhaps a slight unpredictability that makes it more musical, especially as i am no virtuoso and rely on catching vibes rather than rolling out licks and such..i have NO tricks OR treats!

The demos are brilliant...but i am still learning what is what....and have no idea how good this is yet....but..

like...

Guys, I bought the plugin yesterday evening, had the download links within a couple hours, and had my activation code by this morning.

With the time I've spent so far with this plug, you will NOT regret your decision if you buy it. This is hands-down the best acoustic guitar plugin I've used/heard (both the engine and the samples).

One of the best parts is they give you the MIDI tracks for all of the above demos!!! Any doubt in your mind that the demos are real will be quickly put to rest once it's happening on YOUR computer. JUST GET IT NOW!
