Virtual Instruments Magazine "Bottom line, I've yet to hear of another guitar library that touches Acoustic Legends HD. It deserves to become a legend."  - Virtual Instruments Magazine
Keyboard Magazine "There will definitely be times when I'll reach for Acoustic Legends instead of the real thing...Very well-recorded samples."  - Keyboard Magazine
EQ Magazine "The samples are all top shelf, and several presets include "reality enhancers" like adding fret noise and slides."  - EQ Magazine
Recording Magazine "The Acoustic Legend HD collection is worth its price for the chordal banks alone, but when you include the single string and Xtra instrument banks, it is an exceptional bargain."  - Recording Magazine

"With this huge variety of excellent material... Vir2 Instruments achieves realism."
