To create the raw sonic ingredients of Analog Strings, Output captured the best of the best. A full orchestra, the rarest vintage synths, and unconventional elements for sound design. Blended together, they create the perfect starting point.
Output deeply sampled a 60-piece string orchestra, a 22-piece orchestra and a handful of soloist at the beautiful BMC Hall in Budapest. We also recorded unique sounds like scratching a violin with the wrong side of the bow.
Output took a handful of vintage synths known for their string sounds, sampled and processed custom patches, and made them ready for a modern production context. Sounds range from plucks and stabs to thick and noisy pads.
Creative sources include plucked piano, sampled feedback, tape noise, screeching guitar resonance, and a whole lot more.
Behind the Engine
The Analog Strings software engine is brand new, built specifically to manipulate strings. Advanced modulation routing, dual tape loopers, dual arpeggiators, flux and macro control all give you control to make each sound your own. Back that with a 39 GB sound library (20 GB compressed) and 500 presets and you have enough content to keep you busy for years.
