Loomer Intros String Synth For Mac And Windows


Buying Choices

Loomer has announced String, a dual layer, polyphonic string ensemble synthesizer available for Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux, in Audio Unit, RTAS, and VST Plugin formats, as well as in standalone application format.

String's tone comes from its emulation of the divide-down oscillator technology behind the lush ensemble synths of the 70s.

String has two individual sound generating Layers, each housing three phase-locked oscillator stops at 16', 8' and 4' ranges for Layer 1, and 8', 4', and 2' ranges for Layer 2. The relative volumes of each stop can be finely tuned to produce an enormous range of timbres. Both Layers have controllable note split points. Layers can be placed so that each is controlled by a specific range on the keyboard, or even overlapped and stacked together.

Audio demos are available at the Loomer site.

Pricing and Availability

String is £50 (+ VAT if applicable). A demo version is available.
