Rhythmic Robot releases "Godwin" String Synth for Kontakt

Rhythmic Robot Audio have released Godwin, a sampled recreation of the Godwin String Concert. This was an analogue ensemble string synth similar in function to the models offered by Logan or ARP but with a tone very much of its own. The basic synthesised waveforms of the original were processed by a complex modulation section and a thick onboard chorus effect to generate a rich and evolving string sound which then passed through treble and bass filters. The control set was minimal, but the resulting chorused string sound had a peculiarly sweet tone which has led Sound on Sound magazine, for example, to rank it as sounding better than the more famous Solina.

Godwin aims to recreate the Godwin String Concert as closely as possible while adding some touches of modern functionality. It takes multiple samples of the original instrument in a variety of states – chorused, with and without tremolo, etc. – and allows the user to blend them in exactly the same way as the original. The lush analogue chorus of the original is retained but can be switched in and out, while a contemporary stereo chorus can also be added in to generate a wide stereo spread to the sound (the original Godwin was mono only). Velocity sensitivity broadens the responsiveness of the original machine.


  • 24-bit multisamples of an original Godwin String Concert.
  • Retains original Chorus and "Tremolo" (modulation) effects.
  • Modern stereo chorus and velocity sensitivity.
  • Attack and Decay controls.
  • Simple and immediate interface controlling a rich vintage sound.

Godwin is available now from www.rhythmicrobot.com at an introductory price of £12.95 (normal price £14.95). It requires the full version of Kontakt 4.2.3 or later to run.
