AAS releases String Studio VS-2 plug-in
19th June 2014

Applied Acoustics Systems (AAS) has released String Studio VS-2. The original plug-in has been redesigned from the ground up. The interface now divides String Studio VS-2 into three panels:

Beyond the front panels awaits an array of other new features. For starters, structured organisation, backup, and sharing of sounds has never been easier, thanks to String Studio VS-2's Bank and Program management system. The totally refreshed factory library has well over 600 production-ready sounds already classified across 11 categories — everything needed to create all the parts of any electronic production, including a collection of 50 inspiring signature presets by producer Sean Divine — for fast and intuitive investigation prior to digging deeper when moving on to solo sonic excursions.

Seasoned String Studio VS-1 users can drop exported presets into String Studio VS-2's Bank folder to convert them for continued usage — no need to leave anything behind, while the more adventurous sound designers may welcome Scala scale file format support for microtonal music-making. A new output limiter prudently protects ears and monitors and also ensures distortion-free dynamics at all times.

In addition String Studio VS-2 other features include realtime control over any parameters via MIDI controller knobs, faders, and switches; MIDI clock, tap, and host tempo synchronisation for effects and modulations; and relaxed editing with unlimited undo/redo capability.

Price: $99.00 (rising to $199.00 on July 1, 2014) from: www.applied-acoustics.com/string-studio-vs-2/buy (Note that this time-limited offer also includes the new Frontier String Studio VS-2 and AAS Player sound bank by artist and sound designer Daniel Stawczyk). String Studio VS-1 users can upgrade to String Studio VS-2 for $39.00.
