Applied Acoustic Systems, the company most famous for the Tassman modular synth, the Lounge Lizard series of electric pianos and the excellent Chromaphone (seriously, if you’ve not used Chromaphone then you need to check it out, it’s fantastic), have released a major update to physical-modelling String Studio bringing it up to version 2. The interface has a major redesign, splitting the synth into 3 main sections – Play, Edit and Effects – with the Play section now adding an Arppegiator into the mix, users now have 12 effects including brand new EQ and Compressors to add into their chains and the preset manager has had a masssive overhaul making organising and sharing so much easier (VS-2 is also bakckwards compatible with the original String Studio).
AAS aren’t a company to update for the sake of updating so if they have something new it really is worth taking notice of. The original String studio was highly praised on its release 9 years ago and we fully expect this new version to be as successful and for as long.
Available now at the introductory price of $99 and including the Frontier soundbank (rising to $199 on July 1st) it’s available for PC and Mac and comes in 32/64 bit flavours for VST, AU, RTAS and AAX native. Check out the intro video above and then head on over to the product page for full details.
