Synth Magic has released EKO Stradivarius for Kontakt 5.8.1 and higher.
Synth Magic say.
"The EKO Stradivarius is one of the rarest and hardest to find string synths from the 1970s. It has a rich and vibrant sound all of its own."
"I personally spent a long while hunting one of these synths down and eventually found one, but it was in Italy and had to be shipped here. I could not find one in the UK."
The EKO was released in the 1970s and used by the likes of Vangelis during his '70s live shows - the EKO produces beautiful and haunting string sounds of that era. Synth Magic's version allows the user to easily create those sounds and go way beyond what the original hardware can do.
Each of the 6 original sections of the EKO Stradivarius has been sampled.
Synth Magic added extra features to allow for greater sounds to be created from the core sound of the EKO Stradivarius. They also added a special set of Ensemble processed samples for a rich and vibrant sound. Both sample sets can be freely mixed with each other for extra creativity.
Each section also has independent filter shapes with a huge range of filter types to choose from, vowel filters, phasers filters and each synth section (all 6) has them - lots of scope for sound creation or use the snapshots that come supplied which will give a wide range of sounds that can be tweaked and modified by you.
Easily create beautiful and lush strings, haunting pads, synth leads, special analogue type effects, synth stabs and then pass them through the effects section. The effects section has bus sends for each synth section and allows for you to 'dial in' just the right amount of effects for each section.
Intro Price: £20.10 +VAT (Reg. £30).
