Native Instruments offers a thoughtfully-crafted collection of acoustic guitar VSTs that allow you to easily explore and blend different sounds and genres together to create unique and professional-sounding musical compositions.

While the clear, strong tones of our acoustic guitar VST plugins are perfect for folk or country songs, the creation of rich sounding melodies adds a unique flourish to a wide variety of musical genres. So, whether you’re looking for open, muted, flageolet, or tremolo articulations, you’re sure to find the perfect sound to create space and depth.

Acoustic guitar VSTs offer quite different sound compared to electric guitar VSTs, mainly because they produce a different range of tones. For instance, you may need to add an amplifier with an electric guitar. However, acoustic guitars generally do not require an amp plugin. If you’re looking for amped guitars, our GUITAR RIG 6 PRO plugin offers a wide selection of guitars and bass amplifiers.
Native Instruments acoustic guitar plugins offer a unique and distinct sound to any composition. With both strummed or picked acoustic guitar VST instruments to choose from, you can easily add authentic-sounding acoustic guitar harmonies to your next musical creation.



Native Instruments virtual acoustic guitar VST plugins are sampled on carefully selected instruments for an uncompromisingly authentic listening experience. If you’re looking for twangy country notes, mellow folk chords, Latin style licks or classic rock solos, our selection of acoustic guitar simulator VST plugins are sure to hit the right note.

Recorded by professional session guitarists, each pattern captures the unique tone of the instrument and offers an extensive library of strummed and picked patterns to choose from. When used in combination with our free KONTAKT 6 PLAYER, you can effortlessly implement other instruments and sounds for both our KONTAKT instruments, and other companies’ instruments. The simple interface uses a convenient keyboard that lets you control strumming patterns with one hand while playing chords with the other.

Below are some of the highlights of our acoustic guitar VST plugins.


Native Instruments SESSION GUITARIST - PICKED ACOUSTIC plugin includes a library of over 194 different strumming and picking patterns available in real-time, as well as a second instrument that allows you to create customizable patterns and melodies. Native Instruments has recorded all patterns and sounds of this amazing instrument plugin using a 1973 Martin 00-21 acoustic guitar. This small-bodied, Sitka spruce-topped guitar has been a favorite of many artists, including Bob Dylan and Elvis Presley, and is suited to a wide array of picking and strumming patterns.

Our instrument library allows you to combine multiple patterns in one continuous performance. Additionally, you can adjust the microphone using three different mic setups: Condenser (AB), Dynamic (MS), and Ribbon (Blumlein). The picked acoustic guitar VST plugin is a great asset to add to your musical toolkit and allows you to experiment with and combine different features for maximum versatility.



The strummed acoustic VST plugins from Native Instruments allow full control and simplify the music-making process with a functional and easy-to-use interface. Our two strummed acoustic guitar VST plugins, SESSION GUITARIST – STRUMMED ACOUSTIC and SESSION GUITARIST – STRUMMED ACOUSTIC 2, include an extensive library of strummed and recorded patterns captured by a studio professional.

Using a deadnought acoustic guitar for a true authentic sound, our SESSION GUITARIST – STRUMMED ACOUSTIC guitar VST allows real-time playability and smooth chord transitions, as well as double tracking, fret noise, and on-board effects. The range of strumming patterns included in this acoustic guitar VST can be chosen to match the exact accent structure of a song, making it ideal for creatively exploring rhythms and sounds. You can find all the necessary tools in our easy-to-use interface and start making professional-sounding music right away.

The SESSION GUITARIST – STRUMMED ACOUSTIC 2 plugin expands on the patterns and sounds of the original, and includes recorded strummed patterns from vintage 6- and 12-string acoustic guitars. From the 1934 Martin 0-17 (6-string) to the 1960s jumbo model Guild F-412 (12-string), the clear and robust sounds of these vintage guitars deliver warm and soothing sounds.
