Stringer 3.0 - Solina, Logan, Pink Floyd Shine On!

video by virtualoberheim

"Demo of the SonicProjects Stringer 3.0 virtual String machine. All heard sounds are coming directly from the stereo output of Stringer with no external effects involved.

The sampled machines:

- Logan String Melody II
- ARP Omni 2
- Welson Symphony

For the sampling hi-end Apogee Rosetta AD converters (clock jitter less than 22ps) were used which results in unparalleled depth and 3-dimensional feel.

The loop lenghts are up to 4 seconds matching the original beats so that no looping at all can be heard.

The first version of Stringer was released in September 2006 introducing the dual sample engine design.

New in version 3.0

- 64bit and Mac compatibility (Mac: AU only)
- Built-in patch browser with proprietary patch-format
- Larger interface (about 40% larger)
- Built-in effects unit (Modulation and Reverb)
- A separate switchable ensemble effect (pre-effect)
- A new „pure" mode (generated saw) in all-buttons-off state
- 54 new presets (total 98) using the new features

The new "pure" mode combined with the ensemble and modulation effects allows to design new string ensemble sounds from scratch.

System requirements:

Windows: Windows 10 64bit
Mac: OS-X 10.10 and higher

VST or VST3 host (PC)
AU host (Mac)
