Analog synth sounds specializing in strings (violin and cello
Keyboard 49 keys with 49 notes polyphony
Three basic sounds: "violin" ("violin"), alto ("viola") and cello ("cello"), which are in fact the same but spread over several octaves. Push buttons (1 per sound + 3 "bass" and 3 "treble") can combine the sounds of them.
As specified above: simple configuration can because of buttons that each correspond to a specific function. They offer a lot of possibilities to edit the sounds to create unique textures and custom.
The String Melody only in the sounds of strings (as the name suggests), but that's what he does best and best. This is clearly in agreement that we can take full advantage of rich textures, moldable at will. Ideal for creating long tablecloths planing style Krautrock (Tangerine Dream, Klaus Schulze) and Space-Rock.
A synth highly specialized to buy only if you have in mind to reproduce the sounds described above.
I tried it and was fascinated by its sound, since I desperately looking for a way to acquire it. Indeed it is inexpensive (around 250 €, which is not seen the incredible sounds that can draw) but it is also quite rare. So I would say that if you are interested in the creation of layers of strings, moods, textures and you have the option to buy, do not hesitate because it is found and it is rather more than his price qualitatively
