GForce Software has announced the release of Re-Strings, a new Rack Extension for Reason.
Based on Virtual String Machine (VSM), Re-Strings comprises 67 individual sample sets from a plethora of classic analogue string ensembles including the ultra rare (and first) Freeman String Symphonizer, the highly coveted Solina, the eminently desirable Eminent 310, the highly-lauded Logan String Ensemble, plus several other classic (and not so classic) string machines.
Each sample set spans 49 notes (4 octaves), each individually sampled and looped, plus Re-Strings contains a 700+ patch library created by respected patch designers including string machine user and keyboard maestro, Billy Currie.
With Dual Layer capabilities - each layer comprising of a Lowpass, Bandpass & Highpass Resonant Filter Section, Two Envelope Generators, Pitch or Filter LFO, Dynamic control including filter aftertouch - if you want to create your own hitherto unrealised hybrid combinations of classic and evocative string ensembles, it's a cinch. Finally, global vintage style Ensemble & Phaser effects are provided, allowing you to hone your sound.
