Welcome to the Sonicprojects Stringer home!
On this site you will get to know the new Sonicprojects Stringer. The Stringer contains
top notch quality sample sets of the ARP Omni, the Logan String Melody II and the
Welson Symphony in two engines that can be mixed and layered.
The sonic result of a sample based instrument is highly dependent on the way the samples
have been converted, recorded, cut and looped. You'll never gain back what you lose e.g. using a bad clock.
For the Stringer, every key of the original
instruments was sampled using top notch apogee converters. The samples were recorded at full 24Bit/44.1kHz depth to
capture every detail. A lot of time went in the perfect restoration and looping of the total 241 samples.
The loop lenghts are up to four seconds. The sonic result is outstanding and nearly indistinguishable from
The real devices show
The real string machines that were sampled for this project are highly sought after and became rare and expensive on the used market. The Logan
String Melody II was built 1978 in Italy and distributed in Germany by Hohner. It has a very middy
fat and exciting sound. The ARP Omni II is the successor of the Omni I and the Solina. The Solina
string sound was THE string sound of the seventies and eighties, used on every stage and record.
The Welson Symphony is a very rare Italian made String machine. It was built by WEBO electronics.
