Virtually Yours
Take a collection of hard to find and irreplaceable vintage string machines and polysynths. Now sample each note, loop and key map for every preset. Model the classic ensemble effects and a phaser, add a multi-band filter, envelopes and LFO - get a load of top names to create presets. Now we're getting close....

The Virtual String Machine is more than just a string sample library, the subtractive synthesis engine makes it a powerful, classic, synth with endless oscillator sources and a split/layer capability that allows you to take an in-depth class at the old school, or create any number of new and hybrid sounds.

GForce have a knack of releasing virtual instruments with staying power, and this one looks like another to add to their impressive collection. We spent an enjoyable virtual morning with GForce Software's Dave Spiers, who gave us a close look at just what the VSM can do...
