Applied Acoustics Systems String Studio VS-1, No-Brainer Deal

Applied Acoustics Systems String Studio VS-1 has announced another “No-Brainer” deal, this time for String Studio VS-1, a virtual synthesizer plug-in by Applied Acoustics Systems.

The String Studio synthesizer swaps the traditional oscillator, filter, and envelope pattern for real-life string instrument components. At the core of String Studio lies a new cutting edge string model interacting with picks, bows, hammers, fingers, frets, dampers, and soundboards. Through this direct approach, String Studio delivers stunning guitars, basses, harps, clavinets, bowed instruments, percussions as well as rich and animated tones that blend the warmth, naturalness, and density of real-life with unique and innovative timbres from yet unheard instruments.

Great deal and one of the best ‘No Brainers’ so far.

Picked it up last night and very impressed with it.

If you want great sounding acoustic guitars,nice cello/violins,decent digital pianos and some excellent sound fx then this is for you.

The Bass section is pretty poor (apart from acoustic upright bass) and the Piano’s are not realistic at all but u can’t have everything modeled perfectly.

There are tons of presets and for this price, its impossible to go wrong.

Top class stuff, cheers.


this is an amazing deal :D

I personally wasn’t too impressed with the Upright Bass patches so I made my own : )

(shameless plug :D )

+ a friendly plug for Himalaya’s awesome ‘Dreamstate’ soundbank :
