Where Beauty Meets the Machine
Analog Strings is a virtual instrument for the modern music maker. It enables you to craft and perform string sounds that are insanely unique and cutting-edge, yet beautiful and creative.
We captured the best of the best. Two string orchestra, the rarest vintage synths, and unconventional elements for sound design. Blended together, these sounds create the perfect starting point.
We deeply sampled a 60-piece string orchestra, a 22-piece orchestra and a handful of soloists at the beautiful BMC Hall in Budapest. We also recorded unique sounds like scratching a violin with the wrong side of the bow.
We took a handful of vintage synths known for their string sounds, sampled and processed original patches, and made them ready for modern production. Sounds range from plucks and stabs to thick and noisy pads.
Creative sources included plucked piano, sampled feedback, tape noise, screeching guitar resonance and a whole lot more. Remember: tape effects are your friend.
Behind the engine
The analog strings software engine is brand new, built specifically to manipulate string sounds. Advanced modulation routing, dual tape loopers, dual arpeggiators, flux sequencing, and four macro sliders all give you full control to make each sound your own. Back that with a 39 GB sound library (20 GB compressed) and 500 presets and you have enough content to keep you busy for years.
