    Volume 1 & 2 bundle for gigasampler is 59 bucks... I wonder how good this is. Any impression on this gig? Thanks.

    I just got my disks today, and it seems great. The samples sound great , although I\'m curious as to whether the speed of the strums can be changed...(Danny Lux?) I had a bad CD, but the producer, Danny Lux returned my e-mail the same night and sent a new disk the next morning. Can\'t beat that. Anyway, so far I am pleased and feel that 59 bucks makes this a steal. Buy it.

    Hi Craig,
    I received my accoustic essentials cd yesterday but I am having problems getting my cd-rom to recognize it. What sort of symptoms were you having with your first cd?
    I can\'t wait to lay down some smooth guitar chords on some of the material that I am working on but my hands are tied until I solve this cd problem.

    PEACE

    If you are still having problems eMail me. It seems we had about 1/2 dozen or so bad CD\'s in one particular run. It sounds like we need to send you a new one. Just let me know.

    To answer the question of the speeds of the strums. There are 3 versions, or speeds on the disk. This seems to cover a fairly wide variety of choices in tempo. Outside of those three options, there are no ways to alter the tempo without transposing the samples which is not a good alternative.

    It seems like they have several bad batch. I sent them email and got another CD a couple days later. I\'m really impressed with the quality and musicality of this library.

    About changing the speed of the strums, I agree, I think there should be a way to change the speed with low key \'controller\' just like changing chords. So everything is stored in one patch. I wish I\'m capable of programming gigasampler. Well, when I\'m successful in combining all the strum speeds into one patch, I\'ll post here.

    ABI,
    I now understand the speed of the strum question more clearly. It would of have been fairly easy to program 3 more key switches to control the 3 speeds as well as the chord types. This would have made the patch increase to 3x\'s its size it is currently. I will consider doing that in the future.
