Another quick one today — I took a shot at synthesising string sounds, and I’m pretty happy with how it came out. It doesn’t sound much like a real string ensemble, but it’s not really meant to. Instead, it’s another one of those “emulation of an emulation” deals, aiming for something like the string synthesisers of the 70s. In the same way that a Rhodes sounds great without sounding a whole lot like a real piano, those old string synth sounds are very nice, even if they don’t sound like an orchestra.

  1. Hi there, I accidently found this website whilst I’m searching on Google as I’m looking for some info on electric cellos!. I think it’s an interesting website so I have bookmarked this site and intend to revisit another day to allow more time for a more detailed look when I can give it more time.
