UVI String Machines 2


Back in the ‘70s leading keyboard designers around the world attempted to reproduce orchestral string sounds through analog synthesis. The results were far from their original intent but were in no way failures. Used on countless cult records and engrained in our collective memory to this day, these 'String Machines' bore an analog soul on their own.


Countless hours were spent to faithfully capture these analog relics and deliver them in an accessible, expressive and fully editable digital tool. So was born String Machines, a hybrid instrument, forged with the analog imprint of the 11 most musical string synthesizers ever built.
String Machines is built on a library of thousands of samples, painstaking recorded with the very best analog and digital gear available. We've applied everything we've learned in order to bring you this comprehensive instrument.


  • Extensive sample library faithfully produces the authentic hardware sound
  • Presets and preset layers facilitate a fast workflow and loads of inspiration
  • 2 fully editable synth layers for stacking machines to make your own hybrids
  • No loading time when switching machines and sounds
  • Shape your sounds using authentic analog-modeled filters, envelopes, and LFOs
  • Expressive step modulator allows for advanced effects
  • Samples recorded in 24/96 kHz with Prism convertors, mastered and converted to 16/44.1 kHz
String Machines is your doorway to a grand collection of analog gems from some of the most esteemed synth pioneers of our time.
