He said the dividers and fx are digital, not everything...

A chap on KVR was at the Messe and played it and gave a bit of a report. The sound engine is DSP and there's no mention of anything analogue, which fits with the SonicState vid, if I remember correctly, where they talked about tweaking the EQ and filtering in firmware.

Strange, the guy said "mostly analog" and "dividers / fx are digital" in one of the german videos...

Not that I'd care too much...

Has there been any demos without a german guy speaking all the time? Not a particular fan of germenglish either..

Haha, isn't that pretty much all there is to the Streichfett...

There's a Sound On Sound video that Matrixsynth linked to last night. I watched it this morning and was seriously underwhelmed. Sounded more like a 1990 era ROMpler's string piano patch than an analog divide down stringer. Of course, that's Musikmesse and it wasn't plugged in straight to the camera.

On the videos I've seen (albeit crap quality from Messe), I thought the ensemble was waaaay too exaggerated with the "swirlyness". Its like a phaser on max speed. Not very pleasant.

Looks like waldorf are nearly ready to ship with the Streichfett. There is a proper demo of the finished product.

http://www.waldorf-music.info/streichfett-overview

There is also a marketing video in a similar vein to Korg and Roland's marketing videos surrounding their more recent releases.

Watch on youtube.com


:lol: :lol: :lol:

Personally I'll have to wait till some more demos of the thing come out before I can pass judgment on the Streichfett, but I'd love to hear what others think.

Definitely need some more demos, but I'm really liking what I hear so far... Kudos to Waldorf for making such a niche product that clearly a lot of people have been clamoring for.
Do you even post on vse bro?

Ya, I like it too. Great UI. It's clear from the SOS video that the phaser is adjustable for not too much swirl. It IS plugged straight in to the video recorder, with vocal mics on top. Maybe he used too much reverb. But it sounds authentic- listen to the parts without effects.

Yep I like it, but I've always had a soft spot for Waldorf gear. Nice & small too, so should fit into the last few inches of space I have left in my studio.

Sadly, been out most of the evening so barely had any time to play with it :( Hopefully tomorrow night should be better and I can fire up the Solina and Logan as well :twisted:

I just had a listen to the demos on their website and I think this thing sounds pretty cool! I would love it if they put one of these in a 3 1/2 octave keyboard with some nice vintage looks though, it's begging to be an axe rather than a module.

You need to give us a quick demo! 8-) I'm sure everyone here is interested in how well it emulates 70s string machines...

Not really a demo of how well it emulates them, just a run through the factory presets. 'Scuse the video weirdness (not a well-supported codec on Linux), low res (couldn't be bothered waiting for a larger file to upload) and crappy playing :oops:
