Waldorf 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. The Ensemble effect handles 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 offers 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 of delivering rich and creamy pads unlike any other instrument. Twelve patches can be stored and selected in the Memory section, and USB and MIDI are of course on board.
