WOK Announces Cromina String Machine – VST Plug-In For Windows
WOK has announced Cromina String Machine, a physical modeling recreation of the electronic strings sound of the 60s and 70s. Solina, Crumar and Logan where the names, which made it first possible for bands to bring a string orchestra on stage or into the studio. The lush sound of these electronic keyboards stamped many songs of this era.
The soundwise peculiarities of the frequency divider circuit and the BBD modulation section can not be successful recreated by sampling. So we developed a plug-in with the main emphasis on the reproduction of this typical influence on the sound. Though the drawback is a higher CPU load, it absolutely gives a much better reproduction of the original sound. Although this plug-in has it’s focus on the typical Solina sound (including a phaser and delay effect), it can produce a wide range of typical sounds by using the integrated equalizer, vibrato, envelope variations (including a piano envelope) and other tuning controls.
WOK’s Cromina String Machine costs €39 and will be released as a VST plug-in for Windows before the end of April 2010. More information on the WOK Cromina String Machine.
