Loomer String

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.
