AudioWarrior Acoustic Dreadnought Strummer

Bringing a big acoustic sound to Reason

This is designed to provide the Reason user with a full-bodied acoustic guitar sound – and it succeeds.

By taking a premium quality guitar and sampling every note of every chord, AudioWarrior have created one of the best sample-based guitars we've heard.

Because the chords are sampled note-by-note, truly realistic strumming is possible. This 600MB ReFill uses 24-bit samples and includes most chord voicings, mutes, harmonics, hammer-ons, slaps and thumps.

Combinator patches enable you to map chords across the keyboard and also easily apply effects. Excellent.

MusicRadar Rating

4.5 / 5 stars

Incredibly authentic-sounding. Separately sampled notes in each chord.


Still not as good as the real thing.


As good a guitar sound as you'll hear on a sample – highly recommended.
