Great news today, I found a free virtual instrument for download, it's an acoustic guitar which is rare so it worth mentioning.
As far as I have tested it, this free virtual acoustic guitar (recorded on an acoustic Martin D 41) is very versatile & efficient. Sounds are very good, sampling has been done very carefully and cherry on the cake, Ample Sounds made it available for any format (VST, RTAS, AAX, AU) for Mac & Windows , so it's pretty cool !
The AGML is little bit smaller than its big sister just named AGM, the installer is only 670 MB (for the sampling is in 16 bits) whereas AGM is more than 5 GB. There are some other limitations but they aren't too painful that's why this virtual instrument is very useable... and again this virtual acoustic guitar is FREE !
