WOK has announced the release of Estrima, a virtual string machine instrument for Windows.
Liking this lush pad sound of the 60s/70s ? ESTRIMA is the little sister of our Cromina string machine. It creates this famous, swirling sound with a minimum of hassle. Also there is a choir voicing on board to treat you ears with this old “Aaahh”-sound ;-)
Unlike our big Cromina, it does not have the full polyphonic octave divider simulation, but a simplified phase lock for the 20 voices to reduce CPU load. There is a paraphonic envelope simulation too.
Also on board is a 3x chorus and a deep phaser. The waveform-shape of strings and choir can be varied to achieve the sound of different vintage machines. Auto pitch-bend (for the choir) and vibrato complete this straightforward little toy.
Estrima for Windows (VST) is available to purchase for the “Spring-2013-Maya-fail” introductory price of 9.87 EUR.

WOK has released Superfake, a free audio effect that will turn any simple synthesizer saw wave into a sound like the famous Roland Supersaw.
SUPERFAKE simulates a 6x unisono effect with adjustable detune.

But also guitars, strings or choir will benefit from the rich and smooth sound of the plugin.
WOK’s Superfake effect plug-in turns your saw sounds into supersaws.
- Carefully modeled detune values to emulate the famous Superwave sound.
- Adustable stereo spread.
- Full stereo signal path.

Bassimo is a simple virtual analog synthesizer with some tricks up its sleeve.
To celebrate World Music Day we give away this free plugin for everyone, who needs an easy to use synth for bass or lead sounds. BASSIMO delivers the standard VA synth architecture, but with some internal extras for some dirt. Oscillator drift, a little overdrive at pos “11” of the volume knob and more.

The internal oscillator has different wave forms, the pitch can be adjusted manually or by incoming MIDI notes.
RING-O also features a diode ring modulator style setting for less clean sounds and the ability to adjust the modulation mix.
Ring-O is available to download as a freeware VST effect plugin for Windows PC.

WOK has released Mixtube, a tube stage effect plug-in for Windows.
One of the secrets for the special, warm sound of old recordings was the usage of mixing desks with tube input stages in past times. As you know, tube amplifying has many different effects on the audio signal like adding overtones, smoothening transients and so on.
With Mixtube, we carefully implemented these effects into an easy to use VST effect plugin. Insert Mixtube into each channel of your recording and/or the master channel, and enjoy a warmer, thicker sound of your music, with every signal fitting better in the mix.
Mixtube for Windows (VST) is available to purchase for 28 EUR.
