The Waldorf Streichfett is a string synthesizer that sounds like it was lifted straight out of the 80's! Split in to 2 parts you have the String section which is a fully polyphonic synthesizer in which you can choose the string register, octaves, ensemble effects as well as crescendo and release controls giving you and amazing amount of control in a small simple to use package. The other side is the solo section which is focused more on the single line sections allowing you to choose from a range of synth sounds and effects. In between these sections you have the master controls balance, effects (reverb, phaser, and animate) as well as 12 memory banks that can be easily called back.
This is a synthesizer that really tries to take a classic sound and bring it forward with 21st century controls and standards. This is not just to do with the sounds though in this small synth you get your normal stereo outputs as well as a 3.5mm headphone out, USB connection, and MIDI in and out allowing you to connect this into your rig however you want. The Streichfett offers a great range of sounds for a small synth at a great price point so what are you waiting for!
Here's what Waldorf say about the Streichfett String Syntehsizer
Streichfett combines the best of the previously extinct species of String Synthesizers of the 70s and early 80s. Its dual sound engine features a fully polyphonic strings section and an eight voice solo section, which is essential for recreating how adult movies sounded thirty years ago. The Ensemble Effect handles lubrication of the String Section, while the Effects section adds adjustable Phaser and Reverb. Additionally, the Animate Effect can be used to modulate the strings registration, allowing spectacular sound morphs.
The Solo Section offset presets named Bass, E-Piano or Clavi, and just like in your 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.
Although the User Interface is simple and easy to comprehend, it controls a rather complex sound engine which is capable to deliver rich and creamy pads unlike any other instrument.
Twelve patches can be stored and selected in the Memory section, USB and MIDI are of course on board.
