    I had a project fall into my lap where I needed to knock off a present-day Texas Swing sound. I just installed these libraries last night, and they\'re really good.

    Just two splits and release triggers for each instrument, yet very expressive to play, and the tones are absolutely dead on. No one has done an archtop guitar at all that I\'m aware of, certainly not this good sounding. I loaded up the Tenor Banjo, played the line from \"Dueling Banjos\" and just cracked up laughing because it sounded so good. Same for the accordions, they\'re great instruments and well sampled and mapped.

    These are definitely up there with the best Giga libraries in terms of realism and tone quality.

    Hi Kip,

    You\'re welcome, Kip. Well deserved, for sure. Whatever you\'re doing, keep on doing it!

    Slightly OT--Other libraries I\'ve heard lately that are great: Nick\'s \"Rare Instruments,\" Dan Dean\'s \"Solo Woodwinds,\" and the calfskinned Hinger Timps and marimba/vibes from Donny and Sean. All excellent.

    I need to chime in on this one also....I got these discs from Kip yesterday and I must say that they are spectacular! The recording are pristine and the playability is excellent. If you have the need for good all round guitars, accordians, or banjos this is a must have!

    hey Kip....you need to put a demo of \"dueling banjos\" up!!

    Archtop Guitars - Please explain in detail what samples come with this guitar. (strums, leads, acoustic, electric, chords, etc.) Thanks!

    Hello Thomas J,

    Sorry if I did not answer your question completely the other day. When you asked what those Texas Swing MP3\'s were, I replied, \"Beaumont Rag.\" I did not think to mention what instruments were used on those MP3s, which is what you may have wanted to know.

    On those particular MP3\'s of \"Beaumont Rag,\" I used the acoustic archtop guitar with a pick and the tenor banjo with a pick on both the rhythms and solos. First part was a tenor banjo pick solo with acoustic archtop guitar pick for rhythm, and the second MP3 of the Texas Swing was acoustic archtop guitar solo with tenor banjo rhythm.

    On all of the MP3\'s on my web site, I used the \"Dan Dean acoustic bass\" with the archtop guitar, tenor banjo, and accordion demos.

    Thank you

    Kip www.bardstownaudio.com
