Loomer has released version 1.3.11 of its String virtual string synthesizer for Windows, Mac and Linux.
String is a virtual instrument that emulates the beautiful sound of the polyphonic string synthesizer.
String’s authentic tone comes from its accurate emulation of the divide-down oscillator technology behind the lush ensemble synths of the 70s.
Changes in String v1.3.11
- (feature) Keyboard entry of rotary parameter values. Rotary controls can now be typed directly into by clicking on the text value below the control.
- (fix: Mac OS X Audio Unit) Space key-presses will now always be passed through to Ableton Live, ensuring that Live’s transport can be started and stopped, even when String’s UI is selected.
- (improvement: Mac OS X) Installer and all installed components are now signed in compliance with Mac OS X 10.8’s Gatekeeper system.
- (improvement: Windows) The 32-bit and 64-bit VST plug-ins are now installed as separate components. You can choose which one(s) to install, as well as selecting different install folders for each architecture.
- (improvement: Linux) When using the JACK audio system in standalone mode, the JACK Transport will now control String’s tempo.
- (fix: RTAS) Fix for the right-channel muting when bypassing in Pro Tools when used on a mono to stereo track.
- (improvement) Significantly improved UI response speed; reduced CPU usage when parameters are automated whilst the UI is open.
- (improvement: Windows) Clearer font rendering on preset browser.
- (improvement: Windows) Removed C++ runtime libraries redistributable requirement for RTAS plug-ins. The installer no longer installs the C++ runtime library redistributable components when installing the RTAS plug-ins.
- (fix: Linux) User presets are now correctly sorted in alphabetical order within the preset browser.
String is available to purchase for £50 GBP + VAT.
