Are there no 3/4 patterns in Picked Acoustic?

This can't be right. Trying my Picked Acoustic for the first time. When I go to load song patterns and filter by 3/4 in the song browser, there are none. Am I missing something? Are there no 3/4 picking patterns?

    I think you may want to double check your installation because that doesn't sound right... figured I'd check for you and while I don't have many presets I still have some:

    Hope this can help!

    Hi. Thanks for weighing in. Yes, I have scratches and crescendos in 3/4. But come on... really? Scratches and crescendos? That's all there is to do a song in 3/4? Makes zero sense.

    I agree that it isn't much but then again... I'm not sure if I ever heard a 3/4 guitar piece before.

    Still... although this doesn't help I do think it's fair to say that we can always play our own melodies if we want to.

    The Session Guitarist acoustic guitar libraries unfortunately don't offer much for 3/4 time. I like to write in the styles of Classic Country, Folk, Bluegrass, etc. and really wish these libraries offered more in the way of usable patterns, but I also understand that NI needs to cater to a more contemporary market.

    Bummer. I’ve also got UJAM’s picked Nylon, Silk. Maybe something there.

    Just discovered this for myself - really appalling. Looking at the walk-through videos I could see the '3/4' option, so I just assumed that it would offer some 3/4 patterns - why bother having the 3/4 button there at all if no patterns are available? I'd actually bought this library specifically for this, I feel like I've been conned - very poor NI.

    And having just tried them out, the scratches and crescendo patches that come up under the '3/4' banner aren't even in 3/4! So I would ask again, why have a 3/4 button at all? It really feels like it's just there to con people into believing this library offers something it doesn't actually have.

    Just a wild guess, but since there is a whole series of Session Guitarist libraries based around the same GUI, it was more convenient for NI to leave the 3/4 banner in than to take it out.

    + 1 here... I cannot believe 3/4 time has been ignored. That knowledge would have saved me from investing in this VST. For my needs this is like buying a car and learning on delivery that the tires weren't included! Back to Ample Sound guitar VST's for me.
