As part of their NAMM announcements Universal Audio announce the Sound Machine® Wood Works® Plug-In, which they promise lets acoustic guitar piezo pickups sound like a studio-miked acoustic.
The full benefits include:
- Lets acoustic guitar piezo pickups sound like a studio-miked acoustic
- Get rich acoustic sounds in noisy environments or when high-quality miking is not possible
- Re-voice the source guitar’s resonance and acoustic properties live or at mixdown
- Freedom to re-mic during mixing, changing and adding microphones as needed
The results are yet to be heard but we’ll be running a full review of this plug-in to see if it lives up to the claims made about it.
In particular for live recordings, the ability to take the piezo feed used and transform it into a usuable sound in the studio would be fantastic.
The Sound Machine Wood Works Plug-In is priced at $299 at we be released with UAD v8.0 software.
