Sono Elements has announced the release of a plugin instrument that emulates the ARP Solina string synthesizer.

The SolinStrings instrument features the 6 sounds of the Solina as well as reverb, stereo tremolo, filter and noise effects.

The Solina was a multi-orchestral keyboard created in 1974 by Eminent BV. The instrument was ahead of its time in its use of preset synthesizer sounds and has been used by such acts as Pink Floyd, The Rolling Stones, Brian Eno, The Rolling Stones, Joy Division, and the Cure. More recently, during the 90s, Air used it in their music to create their classic records Moon Safari.

Sono Elements sampled the 6 sounds of the Solina and embedded them in a “no fuss” easy to use plugin.

SolinStrings costs $19 USD. It is available for Windows and Mac in VST/VST3 and AU plugin formats.
