Waldorf announces availability of Streichfett string synthesizer

Related: , , , , Posted in news on Jul 25, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Waldorf has announced the release of Streichfett, a colourful string synthesizer desktop module.

Waldorf Streichfett

Streichfett combines the best of the previously extinct species of String Synthesizers of the 70s and early 80s. Its dual sound engine features a fully polyphonic strings section and an eight voice solo section, which is essential for recreating how adult movies sounded thirty years ago.

The Ensemble Effect handles lubrication of the String Section, while the Effects section adds adjustable Phaser and Reverb. Additionally, the Animate Effect can be used to modulate the strings registration, allowing spectacular sound morphs.

Streichfett is available for purchase for SRP 279 EUR (including tax).

Waldorf releases Analog Voltage for Blofeld

Don Solaris Analog Voltage

Waldorf has announced the release of Analog Voltage, a soundset by Don Solaris for the Blofeld synthesizer.

Originally started as quiz game on one musical forum in which users were required to guess which sounds originated from the Blofeld and which from Juno 60. Sounds were carefully programmed into Blofeld to match Juno 60 as close as possible. Result: about 50% of people couldn’t tell one from another. Encouraged by that, Solaris went one step further, pulling out his old vintage analog synths off the storage area and going for the hard work of measuring the behavior, parameter and modulation ranges, etc of originals and then programming those as close as possible into Blofeld.

Source units featured: Juno 60, JX-3P, MKS-50, MonoPoly, Pro One, Prophet 5, Jupiter 8, OB-X and some others. Hence the title, Analog Voltage. The set consists of 128 patches of which 60 are analog synth style patches, 35 analog bass patches and 33 range from ambient, classic FM to special FX.

The soundset is available for purchase for 30 EUR.

Waldorf intros Streichfett hardware string synthesizer

Related: , , , , Posted in news on Mar 10, 2014 - comment 3 comments

Waldorf has introduced Streichfett, a hardware synthesizer unit that combines the best of the now extinct species of String Synthesizers of the 70s and early 80s.

Waldorf Streichfett

Its dual sound engine features a fully polyphonic strings section and a monophonic solo section, which is essential for recreating how adult movies sounded thirty years ago. The Ensemble Effect handles lubrication of the String Section, while the Effects section adds adjustable Phaser or Reverb. Alternatively, the Effect section can be used to animate the strings registration, allowing spectacular sound morphs.

The Solo Section offset presets named Bass, E-Piano or Clavi, and just like in your typical string machine, the sound has little to do with that name. Instead, these are shimmering and slightly percussive sounds that blend well with the string section.

Streichfett features

  • Fully polyphonic Strings Section with Violin, Viola, Cello, Brass, Organ and Choir presets.
  • 2’nd Layer with Violin/Viola Voicing.
  • Ensemble Effect for String Section.
  • Typical String Envelope Generator with Crescendo and Release.
  • Monophonic Solo Section, offering Bass, E-Piano, Clavi, Synth and Pluto sounds.
  • Dedicated Tremolo for Solo Section.
  • Switchable Envelope generator with variable Sustain setting and Attack/Decay (Release) function.
  • Effect Section with Animate, Phaser or Reverb.
  • Layer or Split for Solo Section.
  • Dedicated balance knob for quick adjustment of layered/split sounds.
  • Fully programmable with 3 x 4 memory locations.

Pricing and availability TBA.
