11 Vintage Analog Beasts. Reborn.
Back in the 70’s leading keyboard designers around the world attempted to
reproduce orchestral string sounds through analog synthesis. The results were
far from their original intent but were in no way failures. Used on countless
cult records and engrained in our collective memory to this day; these ‘String
Machines’ bore an analog soul all their own. At UVI we are obsessed with this,
having spent countless hours working on ways to capture this analog soul and
present it as an accessible, expressive, fully editable digital tool. The result of
this obsession is String Machines; a hybrid instrument forged with the analog
imprint of 11 of the most musical string synthesizers ever built.
We’ve painstaking recorded thousands of samples with the very best analog
and digital gear available, applying everything we’ve learned in order to bring
you this comprehensive instrument at an unbelievable price.
UVI String Machines is your doorway to a grand collection of analog gems from
some of the most esteemed synth pioneers of our time.

warmth of yesteryear

STRING MACHINES USER INTERFACE
String Machines loads the sounds in two layers (A & B) and you can edit them
with the different shaping tools included in the user interface.
> MAIN

FILTER
• Arrows / Preset
Select one of the global presets by using the arrows or the conventional preset list
• MASTER:
Global volume control
• EDIT/STEP
Switch from Edit page to Step page
• MUTE A/B Mute Layer A or B
• VOLUME/PAN
Control volume and pan for layer A or B
• OCTAVE
Octave transpose of the current layer
• Select Machine
The first slot allows you to change the machine
• Select Sounds
The second slot allows you to change the sound
•A/D/S/R
Typical filter envelope.
• ENV DEPTH
Depth of the ADSR applied to the filter.
• SHAPER

• VELOCITY
Second LPF filter mapped to velocity
STEREO
> EDIT page
In the Edit page, you can choose to edit only the layer A, only the layer B, or
both layers at the same time.
6
• OFF : Standard playing mode using mono samples.
• ALT :
This emulates the multiple output from old samplers.
Each voice is panned sequencially from left to right.
(SPREAD parameter sets the depth of the stereo)
• UNI : • COLOR : Using sound layering manipulation, this feature allows a dramatic extension of the stereo image.
To be combined with COLOR and SPREAD settings.
Playing neighbouring samples, this parameter shifts the color of the sound in a unique way.
• SPREAD :
Works in ALT and UNI mode, setting the stereo spread.
• TUNE : Works only in UNI mode, detuning both layers.
STRING MACHINES USER INTERFACE
> STEP page
PITCH
String Machines proposes two easy step modulators that can be connected
independantly on both layers, volume and filters.
• COARSE Coarse tune the selected layer in semitones
• FINE
Fine tune the selected layer in cents
• GLIDE
Set the glide time
MODWHEEL
This section allows you to choose what will be assigned to the modwheel.
• VIBRATO : On/Off
• RATE : Speed of the vibrato (free)
• TREMOLO :
On/Off
• RATE : Speed of the tremolo (tempo dependent)
• FILTER : On/Off
• DEPTH : Depth setting from the low pass filter cut off frequency
MODULATOR
• RES

Simply draw your steps with the mouse.
A step with a value of «0» is like having no step.
