Hoard Picked Acoustic is a versatile and agile legato guitar library meticulously crafted for Kontakt.

Like the Hoard Mandolin library, Musical Sampling's goal was to create an instrument capable of handling a wide range of guitar melodies seamlessly, eliminating the necessity for keyswitching.

Expressive legato acoustic guitar

  • Agile and expressive legato acoustic guitar

  • Three legato articulations activated by velocity

  • Automatic down/upstroke legato

  • Natural temperament

  • Adjustable reverb of custom hall impulse


The Master Legato Main patch is a versatile workhorse, incorporating multiple legato articulations: Natural legato, slide to pluck (with CC slide speed control), hammer-on/off, and slide without plucking - all seamlessly switchable via velocity control. Additionally, they provided a distinctive palm-muted legato patch with its own unique flavor.

The Performance Sustains patch is equally significant, showcasing five velocity levels, including the two softest ones for palm-muted and slightly palm-muted performances, significantly broadening the range of phrasing possibilities. 

To enhance the authenticity of your guitar tracks, they’ve included a comprehensive, yet subtle, fret noises patch, along with a room tone, breath, and movement patch - all designed to infuse character, warmth, and humanity into your compositions.

For added versatility, Musical Sampling have thoughtfully included tuned and doubler versions of several patches to cater to your double-tracking requirements.
