Strum is Karplus-Strong synth, written completely in assembly. Very simple and clean UI with visual feedback of used/unused features for easy overview.
Two different and independent string generators for more variety of sounds, with own feedback, string length, attack/decay envelope and vibrato settings. First OSC is trying to simulate basic characteristics of four basic string types - nylon, bronze, steel and flatwound. Second generator uses basic shapes - sine, saw, triangle and square with additional options to tweak (tension & position).
Both generators share the same amp envelope, tremolo, timbre feedback settings and multi mode filter (lowpass, bandpass, highpass, bandreject, peak, Chamberlin lowpass, bandpass, highpass, peak, zOne lowpass, bandpass, highpass, peak, 303 lowpass, highpass and resonant filter). One LFO for cutoff modulation with 17 different shapes (Sine, Saw, Triangle, Ramp, Square and 4 of each based on Lorenz, Rosler and Ikeda attractors.
Delay, chorus and reverb module and simple soft knee limiter.

Strum is another very smart and easy to use Plugin with flat simple graphics and special sound modifiers. 2 OSC with some basic Wavforms including Vibrato and simple Envelope Setting for Strings...the Sound is always good and for typical 303 basslines too...a small Tool with much specific possiblilities you will not much find in other Tools, a great work from Ladislav's VSTZone. The Filter Section with Modulation-Algorhythms works good for Strings with spice and arpeggiated Pianos too. For a Free Tools simply awesome.
What do you think? Give Ladislav some Feedback, he will need to know what you think.
Next Time we will see a different kind of Pitchshifter- and Frequency-Shifter-FX from him, with mostly non regulary modifier surprises...
to wait in suspense...
