Behringer VC340 No-Ensemble Strings thru Nyle Steiner String Filter - Mark Steiner

Published on Aug 18, 2019 Mark Steiner

"Pure VC340 Saw sound (mod bypasses Ensemble BBD's) through a Nyle Steiner String Filter and then through Valhalla Shimmer. Incredible power here with the 'full' polyphony (all 5 octaves of notes can sound at one time if enough fingers are available) of the VC340.

At one point, the Shimmer is dropped and the sound goes through Valhalla Delay (another amazing plugin). Then near the end we hear the VC340 through the Steiner String Filter with no reverb or delay.

It is way, extremely long. But fun. This is the whole session. So quite archival but jump around and try out some sections.

I adjust the Steiner filter occasionally and a few times put it into it's own LFO mode. It gets a great formant filter sound as it uses 24 band pass filters in parallel. Nyle made about 12 of these.

He developed this while doing the sound track for Apocalypse Now.

One of the synthesists in the synth orchestra used a Moog String Filter and Nyle thought about how he could do a string filter with a more simple circuit and for far less expense.

The one in this recording and image seen is the prototype."
