This is an excellent VSTi. Do not be put off by the fact it was assembled in Synthedit. It is a very powerful string machine creator that I have found to be superior to 'Virtual String Machine' by GMedia (a product which to me isn't very playable - why they went the samples route after their excellent Oddity and impOSCar modelled plugins, I do not know!). The latest version of Musicrow's Vintage Strings is even better than the original MKI version; it's my favourite way to pad my songs, depending on the vibe I'm going for, after a Hammond organ (Guido's VB3 if you're wondering!) and it sits and glues into the mix beautiful. It can also be used for nice lead sounds. In addition, those big fat detuned 'dance' string sounds are possible; although I do not use these in my music. The built in chorus ensemble effect is excellent although I also like to turn it off and run the plugin into a phasor to get different tones.
Vintage Strings has never crashed inside my host (Cubase SX 2.2) and it is quick to load. The product is highly recommended, excellent value and gives very professional results.Read Review
