Waldorf releasd Streichfett strings synthesizer in 2014. The small box and affordable price are unique. It has 128 voice polyphinic "STRINGS" section and 8 voice polyphonic "SOLO" section. STRINGS has 3 effects. Ensemble(strings ensemble/chorus), phaser, and "Animate". Animate modulates wave select knob called "Registration". SOLO sections has tremolo. Reverb are there for entire output. Pitch bending, modulation(cc#1), volume(cc#7) are valid and smooth. I think Streichfett is a good polyphonic synthesizer. Although I wish cutoff and resonance, that's crying for the moon. I should try Rocket's filter.
Streichfett has twelve memories for sound store. I played 12 factory presets below. I do not know the intensions of sounds, so, my play might be inappropriate.
|Preset A1||"Shwaaaaa" strings. I am not sure old strings machines sound like this.|
|Preset A2||Piano or bell like sounds and strings.|
|Preset A3||Percussive. I tried bass.|
|Preset A4||Pipe organ image.|
|Preset B1||Sounds like former preset. Stronger attack.|
|Preset B2||Layerd, chorused sound. Good.|
|Preset B3||Guitar like sound. Beautiful.|
|Preset C1||Good human voice.|
|Preset C2||Attack has good taste.|
|Preset C3||Percussive tone and rotating strings. Not bad.|
|Preset C4||I agree it is a good sound.|
I tried to learn. On the way.
|Split experiment||I tried keyboard split.|
|Synth Lead by STRINGS section's pulse||I got pulse wave with minimize "Registration" pod at STRINGS section. No ensemble, no animate, no phaser. A little bit reverb. Modulation wheel adds vibrato beautifully. I feel sympathy with the synth designer.|
|Synth Lead by SOLO section's saw||I adjusted "Tone" pod near "E.Piano", searched soft wave. The wave may be saw or narrow pulse. Envelope mode is AR(Attatk/Release). Small amount of reverb. Nice vibrato.|
|Synth Piano by SOLO section||Envelope mode is AD(Attack/Decay). Attack knob is around eleven o'clock. Not velocity sensitive. Do not expect too much, please.|
