The Sound of Classic String Machines in a Plug-in!
Get the "string machine" tones of yesteryear with GForce's awesome Virtual String Machine. If you know a bit about music history, you know that the polyphonic string synthesizer was invented in 1970 by Ken Freeman. Ken realized that you could layer one note with another note that was detuned and just slightly modulated from itself, and you'd get a nice "chorused" sound out of it. As the electronic music world got wind of the sonic result, manufacturers set out to create a cool instrument that took advantage of this sound.
With the GForce Virtual String Machine, you get a bunch of sounds from that particular genre and time in musical history. GForce used their technology to model a small mountain of both classic and rare string machines. Inside the Virtual String Machine, you'll find a vast repertoire of sounds - everything from the Eminent 310 and the Freeman String Symphonizer to the famous Logan String Melody, the Korg PE-2000, the Elka Rhapsody, the Solina, and more. But GForce, as usual, went ahead and put their own spin on things. Go ahead and dig into the sounds of the originals. Or take advantage of the Virtual String Machine's 2-layer option to build a hybrid instrument and enter uncharted musical territory! Whatever you do, you'll launch a range of sonic adventures - and get a great lesson in electronic music history - when you dive into the GForce Virtual String Machine.GForce Virtual String Machine Plug-in Features at a Glance:
