String Studio VS-3 is a multitimbral synthesiser in which a collection of unique string oscillators replaces the traditional VCOs, DCOs, and operators as the main sound source. Consisting of picks, bows, and hammers interacting with a modelled string, these oscillators offer a special blend of modern and creative synthesis. Augmented with a soundboard, classic filters, an envelope generator, an LFO, and studio-quality effects, String Studio VS-3 proposes a brand-new path in the quest for tone.


String Studio VS-3 provides a genuinely distinctive sonic signature thanks to a collection of unique string oscillators.


String Studio VS-3 combines two independent timbres—either stacked or split—to create performance-friendly, texture-full, and spacious sounds that are sure to make a good impression.


Consisting of picks, bows, hammers, fingers, frets, and dampers, the string oscillators offer a unique blend of modern and creative synthesis.


Augmented with classic filters, envelope, LFO, soundboard, and studio-quality effects, String Studio VS-3 offers a terrific balance between innovation and familiarity.


String Studio VS-3 holds an abundance of effects in three independent racks. Reverb, delay, distortion, phaser, chorus, flanger, filters, equaliser, compressor, guitar amplifier, tremolo—all assist in putting the final touch on a sound.


String Studio VS-3 now boasts two performance modulators per layer that respond to user-defined MIDI controls. Every library sound features effect and morphing assignments that can be played in real time for enhanced expressivity and sonic dimension.


With 800+ professionally crafted presets covering all the synthesiser sound categories, String Studio VS-3 packs everything you need to create all the parts of your productions.


The 800+ sounds of String Studio VS-3 form a coherent whole with consistent gain-staging, unity-gain effects, better dynamics, and compelling per sound MIDI controlled variations. This is our most perfected sound library to date.

Whether you want to set a futuristic mood or compose a parallel universe story, Frontier will yield the extraterrestrial enigma you need.

    Press Quotes

    "String Studio delivers a variety of convincing stringed-instruments emulations, but that's not its real charm. It offers a huge sound palette, as its generous preset library attests. The library is spread across 17 categories, most named after stringed instruments, but the presets in those categories range from emulations to strange instrument hybrids to unstable sounds that you won´t find in nature." - Len Sasso, Electric Musician

    "Being able to create the kind of unique sounds String Studio produces will more then justify the bucks to people who like the sonic equivalent of white-water rafting. I give a lot of points to software capable of creating sounds that cause heads to turn." - Craig Anderton, Keyboard
