AudioThing has announced the release of EKR490, a string machine instrument for Native Instruments Kontakt.
The Elka Rhapsody 490 was a famous Italian strings machine from the mid 70s. It was also sold as the Hohner String Vox with a beige case.
EKR490 features two main sounds, Strings and Violoncello, and a combination of the two which is slightly different than just mixing both sounds together. This synth was used by many artists, including Jean Michel Jarre, Tangerine Dream, and Vangelis.
