Arturia Debuts Augmented Series of Virtual Instruments with Free Augmented String Intro



Free Arturia plugin: hybrid strings instrument kicks off ‘Augmented’ software series


The Augmented Series is described as “Acoustic Instruments Reinvented” – fusions of sampling, synthesis, and musical expression.


Arturia has introduced a new line of virtual instruments, its Augmented Series, with a free plugin, Augmented Strings Intro.  This hybrid instrument combines sampled strings with synth engines to create “an entirely new sonic experience”.


Each preset in Augmented Strings Intro features up to four layers – any combination of string samples, virtual analogue, wavetable, harmonic and granular synthesis. You can morph between layers with a dedicated control, which also adjusts multiple parameters simultaneously.


Augmented Strings Intro’s GUI is based on streamlined macro controls that “intelligently alter” your sound, which should make tweaking a breeze.


The Augmented Series is designed to offer a fresh approach to acoustic instruments in software, blending sampling, synthesis and expression control. It’s designed for creating modern-day sounds that are suitable for today’s producers.


What they say about Augmented STRINGS Intro:

“Augmented STRINGS Intro is a streamlined version of an instrument that combines rich sampled strings with state-of-the-art synth engines in an approachable and inspiring way, giving today’s sound explorers the quickest route to the fresh string sounds they’ve always wanted. Advanced hybrid sounds, instant sound morphing, simple macro controls, and a mix-ready sound – software strings reinvented.”



Augmented Strings Intro is available as a free download until April 30th, 2022.
