Applied Acoustics String Studio VS-2 - Electronic Delivery – No Longer Available

String modeling synthesizer plug-in that swaps the traditional oscillator, filter and envelope pattern for real-life string instrument components
MFR# AADL-SSDL2

Product Description

Applied Acoustics String Studio VS-2 synthesizer swaps the traditional oscillator, filter, and envelope pattern for real-life string instrument components. At the core of String Studio lies a newcutting edge string model interacting with picks, bows, hammers, fingers, frets, dampers, and soundboards. Through this direct approach, String Studio delivers stunning guitars, basses, harps, clavinets, bowed instruments, percussions as well as rich and animated tones that blend the warmth, naturalness, and density of real-life with unique and innovative timbres from yet unheard instruments. With its picks, bows, hammers, fingers, frets, dampers, and soundboards, String Studio VS-2 is a unique blend of acoustic modeling and standard synth-control features. You won’t believe how many different sounds can be created from a single string!

Once again, AAS brings you the state-of-the-art in physical modeling for unmatched sound quality and realism. Instead of relying on samples and wavetables, String Studio generates sound on the fly using an accurate model of the components and interactions involved in string instruments. This elaborate synthesis engine responds dynamically depending on your performance and how it is already vibrating, producing sound that is always unique to the moment. As a result of its nature, String Studio captures the richness and diversity of acoustic textures and reproduces the quirks, subtleties, and responsiveness of real-life instruments. This is the key to providing you with vibrant sound as well as the presence and expressivity of a real instrument.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
