Like fresh Oxygen
We began by modeling the original Solina MK1 from Eminent making sure that the Violin, viola, cello, horn and trumpet sounds were as rich and warm as the original. The renowned ENSEMBLE effect was carefully modeled and is a thing of beauty that cannot be found in any of the sample-based string machines.
Soaring beyond the past
Besides recreating the original features of the Solina, we took a step further and expanded the sonic palette beyond anything the original designers could have imagined.
Additional features like the Vox Humana and Resonators from the 1978 Bob Moog polysynth, original paraphonic and new polyphonic modes of operation, a 24dB per octave filter on the bass section, an LFO, an arpeggiator, and more all add up to creating the biggest and baddest string machine ever.
The Solina in particular blows my mind. It’s lush and authentic, I’ve used the real thing on numerous records and this is the only emulation that I’d use.Richard Simpson

For someone who has spent most of their life playing live with real analogue instruments I've always found it so hard to replicate the warmth and fullness with software. Solina bridges that gap so perfectly I imagine my instruments will be gathering dust in my studio now!Kevin Baird
