Loomer String

Loomer has released version 1.3.0 of String, a virtual ensemble string synthesizer instrument for Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux.

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 v1.3.0

  • Native 64-bit VST plug-in for Mac OS X (64-bit VST support requires Mac OS X 10.6 or greater; 64-bit Audio Unit requires Mac OS X 10.5 or greater; all other formats require Mac OS X 10.4 or greater.)
  • Integrated undo and redo, with unlimited history size.
  • Preset Browser is now maximized to fill the entire plug-in window.
  • Windows RTAS plug-in is now installed to the correct location on 64-bit Windows operating systems.
  • MIDI Program Changes are now multi-threaded, and so will no longer potentially stall the audio synthesis.
  • Fix for crash (on both Windows and Linux) that could occur when ‘space’ is pressed when confirming the overwrite preset dialog.
  • VU meters now automatically reset their overload status after a few seconds.
  • For Windows VST (32-bit and 64-bit), the preferences file can be placed alongside the DLL file to facilitate USB or portable installs.
  • Clearer font in PDF documentation.
  • Fix for rare issue that stopped presets from loading in Linux Renoise when LADSPA plug-in support is enabled.
  • Factory presets now load significantly faster.
  • Various host compatibility fixes.

String is available to purchase for £50 GBP excl. VAT.
