Hollow Sun releases String Synths II

Hollow Sun String Synths II

Hollow Sun has released String Synths II, a string synthesizer sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

The Kontakt version has been updated to String Synths II which features extensive scripting to enhance the experience.

Instead of having various presets in various combinations, each instrument now features a complete control panel so that you can create you own unique combinations pretty much like using ‘the real thing’.

String Synths II features

  • Includes sounds from Eminent 310, ARP/Solina String Ensemble, Moog Opus, Roland RS202/VP330, Moog PolyMoog.
  • Master panel, set ‘global’ functions such as velocity sensitivity and curve, note range, pitch bend range and master tuning and transpose.
  • Control panel, mix and layer the sounds, combining 16′, 8′ and 4′ octaves (depending on the instruments) to create massive sounds. In some instruments, you can layer different sounds – for example, in the RS202/VP330 instrument, you can layer the VP330′s choir sound with the strings for a monumental orchestral texture. There’s also a simple tone control that allows to coax all the commonly heard string synth sounds and some new ones and there’s also simple envelope control of attack and release.
  • Effects panel, add a phase shifter effect with variable amount and speed and you can add (or remove) delay and reverb.
  • Bonus sounds: PolyMoog Keyboard ‘Strings I’, ‘Strings II’ and ‘Vox Humana’ sounds.
  • ARP/Solina has also been updated with the ‘Horns’ and ‘Trumpet’ sounds.

String Synths II for Kontakt 3 is available to purchase for £16 GBP / €19 EUR / $25 USD.

WOK Cromina String Machine

WOK has releasedCromina String Machine, a virtual string machine synthesizer plug-in for Windows.

After more than one year of development we are glad to present you this physical modeling recreation of the electronic strings sound of the 60s and 70s. Solina, Crumar and Logan where the names, which made it first possible for bands to bring a string orchestra on stage or into the studio. The lush sound of these electronic keyboards stamped many songs of this era.

The soundwise peculiarities of the frequency divider circuit and the BBD modulation section can not be successful recreated by sampling. So we developed a plugin with the main emphasis on the reproduction of this typical influence on the sound. Though the drawback is a higher CPU load, it absolutely gives a much better reproduction of the original sound.

Although this plugin has it’s focus on the typical Solina sound (including a phaser and delay effect), it can produce a wide range of typical sounds by using the integrated equalizer, vibrato, envelope variations (including a piano envelope) and other tuning controls.

Cromina String Machine is available to purchase as a VST instrument plugin for Windows PC, priced at 37 EUR.
