String Studio VS-3
 

String Studio VS-3 is a multitimbral synthesizer in which a collection of unique string oscillators replaces the traditional VCOs, DCOs, and operators as the main sound source.

Consisting of picks, bows, and hammers interacting with a modelled string, these oscillators offer a special blend of modern and creative synthesis. Augmented with a soundboard, classic filters, an enveloppe generator, a LFO, and studio-quality effects, String Studio VS-3 proposes a brand-new path in the quest for tone.

Playing Guitar on a Keyboard has Never Been Easier

Creating a realistic guitar track from samples is a tough job. Guitar players voice chords differently, strumming is not easily reproduced on a keyboard, and guitar players use all sort of techniques such as palm muting, scratching and sliding simply not available on a keyboard. Strum GS-2 now does all of this for you!

  • Strum with MIDI Loops – Use the vast collection of recorded strumming patterns over the chords you play and find inspiration for your track. Drag and drop the loop to your host sequencer and make it perfect for your song.
  • The Right Voicings for the Chords You Know – Strum GS-2 chord library contains basic and extended chords available in open, movable, or drop voicings. Play the chords you know and Strum voices them automatically as a guitarist would.
  • Strum on Your Keyboard – Trigger down and upstrokes, scratches and mutes, or create picking patterns using the arpeggio keys.
  • Articulation and Expression – Slide and bend with the pitch wheel or aftertouch. Add vibrato with the modulation wheel. Natural hammer-ons and pull-offs when playing leads.

Guitar Craftmanship 

Have you ever had the chance to create your own guitar? Strum GS-2 allows you to do just that by controlling every aspect in the making of your instrument.

  • Picks and Fingers – Hand picking or playing a heavy riff? Use a pick that is rounded or sharp, stiff or soft. Dig into the strings or use a light touch, play near the bridge or towards the neck for an evolving tone.
  • String by String – Select material and natural decay for each string. Precise control of coupling and interactions at the bridge breath life into your tone with beating and organic envelopes.
  • Pickups – Whether they are single coils or humbuckers, pickups are a fundamental part of the electric guitar sound. They shape the whole instrument’s response and their multiple configurations give tremendous tone flexibility.
  • Body Shopping – The soundboard of a guitar radiates vibrations from the strings. Choose a body size to colour the sound with specific resonances and find the right character.
  • Mutes and Scratches – As on a real guitar, strings interact with the player’s hands and frets. Fine tune your rhythm parts and riffs with palm muting, scratches, and hammer-ons.

Bare Naked – All Suited Up

You’ll love the pure raw sound of Strum GS-2, but the built-in effects will bring it to so many places that you’ll enjoy having them on hand. And you have a chock-full of them to choose from: compressor, equalizer, delay, distortion, phaser, chorus, flanger, wah-wah and notch filters, and reverb.

The community has good things to say about Strum…

Jan Peter Eerenberg (Interface) – “Top techniques”

  • AAS has succeeded in making a good acoustic guitar simulation. The diversity of the various attack techniques is simply top. And with the soon to be release electric version, this is quite exciting.’ 

Nick Magnus (Sound On Sound) – “Remarkably Realistic”

  • “The modelled sound is remarkably realistic, and with care and practice fairly convincing strummed and arpeggiated rhythm parts can be achieved, as well as expressive solo lines.”

5. Objeq Delay

 
Objeq Delay
 

Beyond Traditions

Objeq Delay is a creative effect plug-in combining acoustic filtering with a clever delay unit. The plate, beam, drumhead, and string objects impart evocative acoustic resonances to the input signal. Further shaping is also available via low- and high-cut filters. The in-series delay acts as a classic unit or can split the first and subsequent repeats to either remodel the attack or create complex rhythmic patterns. An LFO module completes the package with comprehensive modulation destinations to the filter, resonator, and delay parameters. 

“Objeq delay is a truly creative and fun effect with multifaceted applications, ” said Eric Thibeault, the product’s designer, “Objeq Delay is obviously a great delay unit, but the complete feature set takes it to another level. The acoustic resonator is a great percussion track enhancer—it’s fantastic on kicks and snares. The split between the first and subsequent echoes can mangle simple loops into new complex rhythms. The LFO allows various modulator-type effects such as flanger and chorus. And then when you bring it all together, a highly resonant object with the delay brings you into the drones territory.”

Objeq Delay is a creative delay unit with unique filtering options thanks to our acoustic object models. Going beyond traditional delay duties, Objeq Delay delivers modulator type effects, drum track layering, one-shot re-crafting, dynamic loop mangling, and drones…

Echoes – 35 Presets

Objeq Delay kits out an extensive Delay module. Whether it’s for psychoacoustic effects, slap, rhythmic, or super lush space-out echoes, with modulation and feedback filters, Objeq Delay covers the whole gamut of delay possibilities.

Modulators – 44 Presets

Objeq Delay boasts a comprehensive LFO with a full list of modulation destinations that allows the creation of chorus, flanger, vibrato, tremolo, and auto-filter modulation effects.

Rhythmic Loop Mangers – 36 Presets

Objeq Delay really augments the life of rhythmic loops. While the resonator is made as a new pulsing element, the delay module, with its independent first and subsequent repeats, answers the source’s original invitation—working together to create complex and intricate new beats.

Kick Track Enhancers – 25 Presets

Objeq Delay’s resonators can transform kick tracks in many interesting ways—add boom decays or snap attacks in skin, plastic, wood, or metal flavours.

Snare Track Enhancers – 20 Presets

Like kicks, snare tracks are prime candidates for Objeq Delay’s resonators. The objects layer in weight, body, an acoustic ring, or a snappier attack showing no prejudice whether your source material is acoustic or electronic.

Dornes – 24 Presets

With high resonance and modulation, Objeq Delay’s resonator forms ever evolving drones that reacts to the source material in a related but often unrecognizable fashion.

Richard Devine Signature – 42 Presets

Expert sound designer Richard Devine bring his touch to Objeq Delay with a comprehensive set of presets that explore the extremes of the effect with all kinds of new and interesting sonic transformations.

Martin Walker Signature – 40 Presets

Sound designer and steampunk audio inventor Martin Walker pushes the boundaries of Objeq Delay, discovering fresh and exciting possibilities while retaining loads of musicality.
