String Studio AAS - A New Breed Of Synthesizer. With its picks, bows, hammers, fingers, frets, dampers and soundboards, String Studio is the perfect blend of advanced modeling and regular synth-control features

 

The string is the thing

String Studio VS-1 is a string modeling synthesizer plug-in that swaps the traditional oscillator, filter, and envelope pattern for real-life string instrument components. String Studio's pick, bow, hammer, finger, fret, damper, and soundboard let you control the materials, natural decay, grain, warmth, buzzes, harmonics, resonance, friction, tension, and component interaction that make up the sound of guitars, basses, clavinets, clavichords, pianos, and ethnic instruments. And that, with the same scope and versatily that you've come to expect from a full-featured traditional synthesizer.

Familiar faces

In addition to the string instrument related components, String Studio VS-1 also features an LFO and envelope modulated multi-mode filter, distortion, EQ, arpeggiator, and effects for further sonic capabilities. String Studio's extensive library includes lots of real-life string intruments oriented sounds but also features classic bass, lead, pad, poly synth, and arpeggio sounds.

Where soundscapes become instruments

Sound designers are in for a treat. String Studio VS-1 packs pads that blend the characteristic attack and decay with the organic and natural movement of acoustic instruments; growling, twisting, and evolving ambiences that carry a mixed bag of emotions that will move any film score; and playable sound effects that react to each note and velocity to produce an infinite realm of possibilities.

Traveling without moving

We're usually quick to recognize foreign instrument by their distinctive attacks, strange resonances, and unusual behaviors. String Studio has loads of these rare and unheard ethnic instruments—a wonderful journey through time and space, and surely a touch of exoticism to your productions.

  • Real-time control over any parameters via your MIDI controller knobs, faders and switches

Using String Studio as an instrument plug-in

The String Studio plug-in integrates seamlessly into the industry most popular multi-track recording and sequencing environments both as a virtual instrument plug-in. String Studio works as any other plug-in in these environments so we recommend that you refer to your host sequencer documentation in case you have problem running String Studio as a plug-in.

Using your MIDI controller knobs and faders

Every parameter on String Studio's interface can be linked to an external MIDI controller. To assign a MIDI Link, right-click (Control-click on a Mac) on a control (knob, button, slider, etc.) and a contextual menu will appear. Choose Learn MIDI Link. Move a knob or slider on your MIDI controller. This will link the control of String Studio VS-1 to the MIDI controller you just moved.

Using MIDI program changes

MIDI program changes have been assigned to the factory Presets or Performaces. You can therefore use program changes to explore the String Studio library.
