Wood works!!!!

I hate plugged in acoustic guitars.... this plugin has literally saved the performance for me on a few live recordings. It breathes back a little “real” into a DI acoustic. Very useful!

A useful tool

I’ve been mixing music for a live performance TV show. Lots of acoustic instruments, often taken direct only since it’s live. This plugin has added more of a mic’d quality to steel and nylon-string guitar, dobro, oud, even upright bass (though it’s less effective there). It’s not perfect - but it is a big improvement over the sources I have to work with. Does it sound just like a good mic? Of course not! Does it sound better than a piezoelectric pickup? Absolutely! Buy it when it's on sale if you have the need for it.

This plugin has saved many of my productions where recording direct acoustic guitar was the only option. Definitely take the time to dial in the sound to achieve great results! Thank you for this :)

Saves my ass

I used this on the Noel Gallagher track Dead In The Water to make a DI work well in the mix. I constantly use this to rescue live recordings where the mic (if there is one, is unusable) A very handy tool!

This plugin is remarkable. Library strings, guitars and basses suddenly appear 'in the room' as a miked up player.
I'm blown away by it. It's immediately made it's way into my work flow. As others have pointed out - use it on an Aux Send.

The only serius alternative for recoring piezo mic

A very close to reality when recoring guitar using piezo together with Sound machine! I never record guitars with piezo mics since the sound is allways disapointing. Sure it is convinient to record with piezo, but the afterwork is more or less endless and the result allways disapointing. The sound machine Wood works changed the rules complitely. The result is amazing. This is five out of five!

Great sound from direct piezo recording

This is the only way I’ve ever found to record straight from a piezo, and get full acoustic guitar sound. And the versatility of sound is something you definitely can’t get any other way.

Tut mir leid UAD, aber dieses Plugin ist das viele Geld wirklich nicht wert. Der Sound aus dem Promovideo ist nicht hinzukriegen. Ich bezweifele, das der wirklich mit dem Wood Works fabriziert wurde. Ich finde sogar das unbehandelte Signal der Piezos klingt besser. An eine Mikro Abnahme der Gitarre hinzukommen ist aus meiner Sicht nicht möglich. Hier war ich von der Qualität und dem Preis-Leistungs Verhältnis echt enttäuscht. Habe mich hier leider zum Kauf entschieden ohne vorher den Demo Zeitraum genutzt zu haben, weil ich bisher immer voll zufrieden war mit den UAD Plugins. Sorry Guys - not your best Job !

Better invest the money in a good microphone

The sound of your guitar can be improved with the plug in, but only very limited. The sound is far away from a good microphone.

Require some work around but worth it

Tried this plugin several times in the past, never liked it. When it went on sale, I decided to try again. After carefully reading reviews and checking Youtube, and after some trial and error, finally made it work by utilizing this plugin in mixing stage only, with the Sound Machine on Aux and the phase alignment tool by Little Labs. The result was quite impressive, added body and dimension. I like these options to model the sound by the guitar body type. I tend to turn down the neck a bit and keep the body and keep original track in the mix with some reverb. I was on the market for the pair of mics, but now I am set.

Cualquier señal que le tire la convierte en acustica....Si tenes una señal ya sea de guitarra electrica o acustica este plugin la transforma en acustica. Ideal para esa guitarra con piezo electrico de calidad media o la imposibilidad de microfonear, este plugin lo convertira en algo mas que agradable. Es ideal para riff y guitarras bluseras, acusticas de caracter. No rinde tanto si se busca una ritmica soft cual Taylor. A mi se me hace de gran utilidad y practicidad.

Really quite good!

This is working for me just fine. I love the variety that's available here, and it does something that an equalizer just can't do for acoustic guitars. Thank-you very much.

Flesh around bones.

This is a tool to get flesh around bones but won't make wonders.

Detailed sound, pairs well with...

Super detailed sound, it's amazing what you can do with acoustic pickups! Even sounds good on Taylor's with interior mics. I pair this with Ocean Way for a really good mic'd situation simulation!

Livesaver for live use

I've been using this plug-in for my Breedlove acoustic in live gigs with my Apollo Twin and I'm loving it. You have to tweak the stock presets a little bit but it's easy and fast. Totally recommended.
