We’re pleased to announce RE-STRINGS, the Vintage String Ensemble Rack Extension for Propellerheads Reason. Based on our award winning Virtual String Machine (VSM), RE-STRINGS comprises 67 individual sample sets from a plethora of classic analogue string ensembles including the ultra rare (and first) Freeman String Symphonizer, the highly coveted Solina, the eminently desirable Eminent 310, the highly-lauded Logan String Ensemble, plus several other classic (and not so classic) string machines.
Each sample set spans 49 notes (4 octaves), each individually sampled and looped, plus RE-STRINGS contains a 700+ patch library created by respected patch designers including legendary string machine user and keyboard maestro, Billy Currie. An in-depth interview with Billy can be found here.
In collaboration with our friends at Streetly Electronics, we are delighted to bring you the Streetly M300 Leads Expansion Pack for M-Tron Pro.
Released in 1968, the M300 was the first 'Tron with a single 52-note keyboard, making it considerably more portable than its predecessor, the MkII. The M300 also came with a new set of sounds which were considered more hi-fi than those of the MkII.
