Easily transform your acoustic’s piezo pickup into a multi-miked acoustic.

The Wood Works plug-in for UAD-2 and Apollo interfaces gives you exceptional studio microphone sound from any piezo-equipped acoustic guitar. Now you can easily track multi-dimensional acoustic tones in real time — even in situations that would challenge physical microphones.

Wood Works also allows you to “re-mic” your guitar tracks as you mix — refocusing or radically reshaping them at any stage of the mix, even if your guitar was recorded in a less-than-perfect environment or a live performance.

Now You Can:

Record your acoustic guitar direct, in real time with microphone quality sound using Apollo Twin, DUO, or QUAD

Use any UAD-2 hardware to re-voice pre-recorded acoustic guitar, transforming its resonance and character

Record stunning acoustic tracks in noisy environments and onstage without bleed

Mix multiple mic voicings for rich, complex tones without re-tracking

Works great for electric violin too.

It's not for everyone but it sure does what few other plugins do. Exactly the sort I thing I'm looking for from UA.

saved my butt on a project

I recorded a nice parlor guitar for a client and no matter what I did I could not make it sound like a good acoustic guitar . I had a pair of 414's on it and a DI . I inserted the sound machine woodworks on the DI and BOOM I now have an acoustic guitar to mix added in the two 414s to the DI plug in track and yahoo. As soon as this happened i bought the plug in . Best thing I have ever purchased

I've been using this for demoing songs with my acoustic DI and it get's me 90% of the way there. It delivers consistent, repeatable, reliable results in a pinch! This is so much easier then moving mic's! Nothing beats a well mic'd acoustic guitar... but if you're on the road, or trying to record in a noisy environment... this knocks it out of the park.

Really helps with DI acoustic guitar

If you're unable to mic your acoustics like I am, this is a godsend. I use it in combination with Ocean Way Studios, on separate sends, with a clean pre and a tape sim, and it sounds fantastic.

Great Surprise

I was surprised by this plugin. I'm not friendly by this kind of plugin but this one sound very well with acoustic instrument.

So simple and yet flexible, great sound!

The price for the plugin seems a little too high at first, but the investment was worth it. Guitars with piezo pickups get a sound that comes very close to the recording with a good microphone.

Skeptical but...

I was very skeptical about this plugin as I've always mic'd my acoustic but decided to try this out. I'm now a convert. It took some time to get a good sound with my K & K pickup on my RainSong but it actually solves a few problems like mic placement consistency when doing multiple takes. I also like the spacial effect I get.

It Works!

I was skeptical about this plugin but after activating my 14 day demo and cutting a few tracks with a Rainsong carbon fiber guitar, I’m sold. Does it sound as good as two KM-184’s properly positioned and set up? No. Is it exponentially less time involved and does it sit in the mix as well? Yes. If you buy this, will you likely add more acoustic guitar tracks to your projects?

I think you will. Enjoy!

A lifesaver

When mixing live recordings, this thing is a real lifesaver!

Glad I Did!

Having used and owned just about just about every acoustic emulator for live and in the studio,I was skeptical about this plug-in.I already have every accoutrement that I needed, so why spend the money to duplicate what I already have?But after demoing and then buying,I am actually thinking about using it live as well as in the studio.Super easy and super usable.

Secret weapon

This really helps with turning what is usually an unnatural do acoustic into a roch acoustic guitar

It's Okay

Let me preface this by saying I'm a songwriter that needs to create reasonable work tapes for my publisher to review prior to an official demo recording. I am not an engineer and prefer easy to use plugins with great presets to get the sound I need. i.e. live recording either guitar or keyboard with vocals, presets to get the sound I'm after without too much tweaking, then a quick master with BX Masterdesk Classic. I do own quite a few UA plugins but only write a glowing review about a few of them...this is one...

Have to admit, I was hoping for more. The new Neve 1084+EQ is making it sound better though.

Great for Sit in the Mix Acoustic Guitar

Bought this a couple of years ago and never used it on a track until a couple of weeks ago. It saved a session! I’m a pro songwriter but only an above average guitar player... I can put a track in the pocket but my technique slams the pick guard... not cool on a live condenser mic on a real important session. So... I took the drum track back to my hotel room in Nashville and recorded a great take direct in my road rig Apollo X4!

The producer and engineer loaded the plugin and with the right preset and a touch of eq the track has everyone fooled.

Nothing sounds better than a mic’d acoustic but this proved to be a game changer... great tool to keep in your arsenal when the track just needs to sit in the mix!

Sound Machine

I do a ton of Mobile Recordings where the acoustic is going DI. 9 times out of 10 there are terrible electronics inside the guitars, making it near impossible to get the instrument to sound decent. This is absolutely a saving grace in those moments, and when dialed in correctly, its difficult to tell the difference in a mix.
