Where beauty meets the machine

ANALOG STRINGS is a virtual instrument for the modern music maker. It enables you to craft and perform string sounds that are insanely unique and cutting-edge, yet beautiful and creative.

Intuitive Interface

Built specifically to manipulate string sounds. Advanced modulation routing, dual tape loopers, dual arpeggiators, flux sequencing, and four macro sliders.

Deeply Sampled Orchestra

A 60-piece string orchestra, a 22-piece orchestra and a handful of soloists at the beautiful BMC Hall in Budapest.

Creative Sources

Creative sources include plucked piano, sampled feedback, tape noise, screeching guitar resonance and a whole lot more. Remember: tape effects are your friend.

Legendary Synths

Vintage synths known for their string sounds, sampled and processed original patches. From plucks and stabs to thick and noisy pads.

Don’t just take our word for it

“I could speak volumes on features, FX, and user experience…but it's the SOUND!!!”

Scorecast Online

“Real world sounds that integrate really well with an orchestra. You're able to achieve something that an orchestra actually isn't able to achieve. Adding Analog Strings pushes strings forward.”

Greg Townley
Composer/Mixer – 1917, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Captain America: Civil War

Out Now – Hybrid Beats: New Kits for Drum Sesh⁠

These slap harder than your usual acoustic drum loops. Performed by drummer @danieljgallardomusic, these are designed to bridge the gap between modern hip-hop and alternative, excelling as the backbone for any style in between.
