Hadn't seen or heard anything about this plugin until now, very surprising as it's one of the best acoustic guitar vsts I've found. Sounds amazing and easy to play. Chord detection is nice and responsive and there's enough sound controls to get the tone you're looking for pretty quickly.

Works really well and sounds fairly good. Only flaw is that the VST crashes everytime in iOS, but no on Windows!

This plug in keeps freezing ableton for me whenever i try to close the plugin and look at the rest of my session. and it the black dots dont show up on the guitar arm to show the chords with chord detection as shown in the video. seems to have good sound tho

Just downloaded this and using it in Reaper...sounds AMAZING. Really like a real acoustic guitar once you play with the settings some. Personally I like Lucy's Folk guitar setting, added some Xhip/reverb and it sounds so very much like my Takameni its uncanny ;) Thank you so much for this.

Anyone used spicy guitar in reaper? I'm new to reaper and I can't seem to make it work in reaper. I've can see it in my VST folder, I can add it to the track and I can see it but it does nothing, will not detect music, will not do anything. am I doing something wrong? is there something I should do before adding it? any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

I really liked the VST. The sounds weren't right for my project but I can see how this could sound really good on the right track. Kudos for keeping it free!

Unfornately it keeps crashing in FL 12. Wish there would be a fix, because the vst itself is really good.

The 64-bit version worked perfectly in Reaper. With a little practise, you can get some realistic up and down strumming. However, the 32-bit version did not work too well on Adobe Audition 3 (which I am sure is the fault of Audition, not the fault of Spicy Guitar). It crashed a lot in Audition and the chord detection would fail and select wrong chords. Did not have any of those issues in Reaper. Great plugin, lots of cool stuff like strumming, harmonics, palm mutes.

Sounds really awesome! Better than most plugins I've tried. Great tweaking functions on this plugin. If you know guitar chords well, it sounds even better!

There really aren't any good sounding Guitar VSTs anywhere. I stumbled upon this and boy am I happy I did. It solved my issue of the only missing natural instrument for my tunes. Thanks; it sounds the best of all 'simple' guitars I've tried. Its most natural and the chord detection really works for strumming too.

It seems to work fine in Reaper on Mac. Guitars well modelled and the sounds are excellent. I'm using it as a learning aid at present. Learning guitar. The GUI could be bigger and easier to read and also it would be good if it could stay on top when using other windows in Reaper. I don't know if the dev has any control over that or not.

It's an excellently designed guitar VST. Just chuck some reverb on it and you'll be able to use it for anything acoustic, from Flamenco upwards. And it's Free!! A really good acoustic guitar VST.
