ARP Omni 2                      

Welson Symphony           
Welcome to the Sonicprojects Stringer home!

The sampling procedure

ARP Omni sample >>

ARP Omni sample loop point

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 original.

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.   more info
