The String Collection

Warm Evocative Synth Strings.

Product Overview

I have always had a bit of a soft spot for evocative cinematic synth strings and especially pseudo realistic string ensembles.

Probably as a result I've almost subconsciously amassed (and sometimes restored) a small collection of historically important string synths over the years and found to my delight that they blend and layer very nicely with one another.

Overview

Combined Vintage Strings

These include my 1938 Novachord, arguably the world's first polyphonic string synthesizer, the 1972 Eminent 310 Unique which features an early incarnation of the Solina Strings and its direct relative, the ARP Omni. I have also been playing with a number of discrete methods to generate exponential sawtooths, passive tube buffered L/C formant resonators, analog chorus circuits and tube processing.

The way most of these early polyphonic instruments worked was very different from the later voltage controlled synths and they very much have a tone and texture of their own. The triple parallel analog BBD based chorus stages with multiple free-running LFOs on the Eminent 310 and Solina alone are significantly more lush and complex than the single stage chorus sections found on later synths. A number of tube processed layers and blends were brought together to form the basic 16 instruments loaded into the layering engine to form the The String Collection...
