String Ensembles, Solo Violin, Viola, Cello
Strings is a virtual ensemble of strings consisting of
sections conformed by violin, viola, cello and double bass,
which can also be played as solo instruments. It includes
sampled articulations like staccato, marcato, spiccato and
legato as well as bowing techniques such as pizzicato and
tremolo. Complementarily introduces four analog strings based
on classic polyphonic synthesizers. Available in VST 32 bit and 64 bit and VST3 64 bit versions for
Windows / Audio Unit, VST and VST3 for

Auralization: Synthphonica presets brings a
stereophonic sound panning to increase the audible
perspective, even without using the built-in
reverberation or LFO pan effect.
ADSR envelope generator with Attack, Sustain, Decay and Release parameters:
determines the time it takes for the note to get to the maximum level.
determines the time it takes for the note to go from the maximum level
to the sustain level (controlled by Sustain).
determines the level of the sound is played at while the note is held (after
the other envelope states, Attack and Decay, have been completed).
determines the time it takes for the note to fall from the sustain level
to zero (silence) level when it is released.
• Pitch Bend: The Pitch Bend knob directly changes the pitch of the selected
Bend center position: is normal pitch.
Bend down: Specifies the amount of pitch change that will occur when the
pitch bend/modulation lever is moved to the left.
Bend up: Specifies the amount of pitch change that will occur when the
pitch bend/modulation lever is moved the right.
• Low-Frequency Oscillator Controls: These knobs apply LFO modulation to the
selected instrument. By using the LFO to modulate various aspects of the
audio signal, you can apply effects such as vibrato or tremolo.
Rate: This knob controls the frequency. Turn clockwise for a faster
modulation rate. Ø LFO
Depth: This knob controls the amplitude. With a lower setting, the
resulting modulation is subtle, while a higher depth will result in a
much more extreme effect.
• Reverb Room built-in: provides a spaciousness and depth to simulate the
sound reflections from walls, floors and ceilings following a sound created
in an acoustically reflective environment. Small rooms can be modeled as
well as large spaces.
• Filter Type. Combo box to switch between the following options:
Pass (LPF): a filter that passes signals with a frequency lower than a
certain cutoff frequency and attenuates signals with frequencies higher
than the cutoff frequency.
Pass (HPF): a filter that passes signals with a frequency higher than a
certain cutoff frequency and attenuates signals with frequencies lower
than the cutoff frequency.
No filter is applied.
Frequency Filter: Sets the cutoff frequency for the low pass and high
• Amplitude Range Parameters: It controls the loudness, the way in which we
perceive amplitude.The sensitivity level is set by the user:
• Panning potentiometer control: Set the panning of the instrument. Adjusts
the stereo pan position of the signal output, which determines how much of
signal is sent to the left and right channels.

Indicates a short note, long chord, or medium passage to be
played louder or more forcefully than surrounding music. Staccato: Signifies a note of shortened duration. Legato: Indicates musical notes are to be played or
sung smoothly and connected. Spiccato: is a bowing technique for string
instruments in which the bow appears to bounce lightly upon
the string. The term comes from the past participle of the
Italian verb spiccare, meaning "to separate". The terms
martelé and sautillé describe similar techniques. Tremolo: Consists of moving the bow back and forth in
very short strokes extremely rapidly, not in measured
rhythm. Pizzicato: On bowed string instruments is a method of
playing by plucking the strings with the fingers, rather
than using the bow. This produces a very different sound
from bowing, short and percussive rather than sustained.
