Since some time I have the idea of ​​collecting basic waveform audio samples of different string machines with chorus turned off, to sample it and obtain a precise emulation using an elkorus.

The string machines waveforms have the characteristic that are static and in phase, so you have to get the loops and notes as accurate as possible to avoid detuning and shakes that do not exist in the original machine.
In the case of you want to get multiple basic sounds like the Solina, beware of adding the waveforms in the same starting point of the wave cycle to avoid out of phase waves. All movement and richness of the sound is provided by the string ensemble chorus.

We choose the units that had less noise or problems for sampling to avoid any noise reduction processing or processing that alters the color of the sound. The samples are uncompressed wav files.


Logan String Melody


Cello Viola and Violin are the same basic waveform of the Logan. The only difference between presets is that each sound is just one octave higher, being cello the lower, and Violin the higher. In this wav have all the register since lower to the higher. Combine different layers in your sampler with octave shifting to get more Logan combinations.

If you want to get the 3 Logan presets at the same time and your sampler doesn't have more than 2 layers, use the combination of Cello+Viola and then add the upper octave on the second layer.

Roland VP330


The problem with the VP330 is that the chorus can only be turned off at the voice section but the string section is always on. We must wait to modify a VP330 unit and disable the internal chorus section to get the raw waveform. Meanwhile we have this raw samples:

MALE VOICE 8"
MALE VOICE 4" 

As soon as we get new raw sound the page will be updated with the new samples.
