A Library of Samples from 11 Renowned String Synths Back in the 70's, leading keyboard designers around the world attempted to reproduce orchestral string sounds through analog synthesis. The results were far from their original intent but were in no way failures. Used on countless cult records and engrained in our collective memory to this day, these 'String Machines' bore an analog soul on their own. We spent countless hours working to faithfully capture these analog souls and present them in an accessible, expressive, fully editable digital tool. So was born String Machines; a hybrid instrument, forged with the analog imprint of the 11 most musical string synthesizers ever built. Thousands of samples, painstaking recorded with the very best analog and digital gear available, combined with our deep knowledge of analog modeling and advanced signal processing; we've applied everything we've learned in order to bring you this comprehensive instrument at an unbelievable price. UVI String Machines is your doorway to a grand collection of analog gems from some of the most esteemed synth pioneers of our time. Highlights: ◆ Extensive sample library faithfully reproduces the analog grunge and warm sonics ◆ Large library of presets and preset layers facilitate a fast workflow and loads of inspiration ◆ 2 fully editable synth layers - create your own hybrid synths ◆ No loading time when switching machines and sounds ◆ Shape your sounds using authentic analog-modeled filters, envelopes, and LFOs ◆ Expressive Step Sequencer allows for advanced modulation ◆ Samples recorded in 24/96 kHz with Prism convertors, mastered to perfection and converted to 16/44.1 kHz

if this is indeed a "fat" "strings"... and has a real BBD-based ensemble circuit (which forms about 90% of string machines sound) , this will be VERY interesting. especially if the digital oscillators (i presume) will run at 96k to have cleaner silkier high end, the rest will be taken care...

...not forget , The original 4 and 8 voice were 4 octaves along with OB-SX, Roland JP-4 and many string machines.

Best String Synth in 2019? Or go for the vintage real deal?

That is one epic sounding chorus. kfhkh The thing that's most noticeable to me in comparison to the old string machines is the high end. If you could tame that slightly, and perhaps have a little less depth to the chorus, then I think you'd be very close to the vintage machines in William Salmela's...
