There's a thing along these lines we did with a remix for someone. Send the track to a reverb, really wet, put the returns of the reverb through a compressor and key it off something (in dance music it's usually the kick) that's on the downbeats. You could even key it off the attack from the accoustic, with a gate with a high threshold over the sidechain feed so you only get the first attack feeding the compressor key.
YOu can go even further and bus things to subgroups and then put compressors like this over 2 different subgroups and key them off different beats so you get them kinda pulsing in counter rythms.Does that make sense or did I balls up trying to speak again?
