Waldorf Streichfett String Synthesizer Available Now as Virtual Instrument


Waldorf today introduced Streichfett String Synthesizer in plug-in format.


The Streichfett was introduced as a hardware module in 2014. At the time, Waldorf said that it sounded ‘how adult movies sounded thirty years ago’.


Waldorf’s Streichfett features a fully polyphonic String Section and an eight voice Solo Section. The Ensemble Effect provides depth and movement to the String Section, while the Effects Section adds adjustable Phaser and Reverb effects. Additionally, the Animate Effect can be used to modulate the Strings Registration.


The Solo Section offers presets named Bass, E-Piano or Clavi, and just like with a typical String Machine, the sound has little to do with that name. Instead, these are shimmering and slightly percussive sounds that blend well with the String Section. The plugin also includes 16 programmable presets.
