strings
« on: November 18, 2019, 11:22:27 pm »
Hi.

I have a Dilemma, I have been working hard and want to reward myself with a new bit of kit.
I have wanted to add a Waldorf Streichfett to my BeatstepPro/Keystep/Volca etc rig for a while now, I also fancy an all rounder to keep in my bag at all times and to help keep me entertained in the evenings when I work away from home.... I sold my Novation circuit a while back and are looking for something to replace it, something that lends itself to jamming with others and to come up with ideas on.

Perhaps Microfreak could fulfil all these criteria???

Has anyone made convincing disco solina/streichfett strings on the Microfreak???

Thanks all

CRGxxx

Ill take that as a no then.

Oh well, I'm still going to get one as I dont think there is a better more versatile little synth to keep with me at all times.

Hey CRGxxx. I am also a Solina/String Machine obsessive. I'm able to get close to that sound with some basic patching and using the Chords mode in the Microfreak. Over and above, what I really do to emulate the Solina sound is by using a Chorus pedal after the Microfreak. Currently, I alternate between using the a TC Corona and and a Walrus Audio Julia while I build a true BBD rack effect. Hope this helps.

 Thank you very much for that.

I think I will go for a freak 1st as it seems like a great all rounder..... then depending how I get on with making string machine patches I will try and find a used Streichfett in the future.

Many thanks again

Craig

Havnt had long with it but it seems pretty good for strings.
