SONiVOX (sonivoxmi.com), a leading developer of premium virtual instruments and synthesis technologies, today announced the introduction of Solina Redux, a highly-expressive Arp Solina string ensemble emulation.
Designed for users who want to hot rod an Arp Solina String Ensemble, SONiVOX’s Solina Redux virtual instrument adds a sweet sounding virtual analog synthesizer to a classic reproduction of an Arp Solina String Ensemble, then adds two fully-programmable 8-step sequencers. It’s a match made in heaven and one that produces sonic textures users simply can’t get any other way.
The Arp Solina was the preeminent string ensemble in the 1970’s, made famous by the Eagles, Elton John, Pink Floyd, The Cure, Joy Division, Tangerine Dream, New Order and many others. Its analog Violin, Viola, Cello, Contra Bass, Trumpet and Horn sounds have a sound that creates rich retro sounding orchestral ensembles, especially with its famous “Ensemble” chorus effect.
Solina Redux gives users access to the original Solina sounds, including a model of the Ensemble chorus effect, but includes a modern virtual analog synthesizer as a sidecar. The combination of these two synthesizers provides a sound palette that is both retro and modern or anything in between at your discretion. Each synth includes a multi-mode filter, amplitude and filter envelopes, LFO modulations and send effects.
To top it off, Solina Redux adds in two fully-programmable step sequencers, one for the Solina instrument and one for the analog synthesizer. Play one note and out comes a modern orchestra unlike any you’ve heard. Each step sequencer gives users ‘per step’ control over the pitch of each note, the volume of each note, the filter cutoff of each note, and the panning of each note. Other controls include gate time, tempo sync, time division, swing, note order and octave shift.
Sonivox Solina Redux is available now at the Sonivox website and dealers worldwide. Introductory retail price (through June 30, 2018) is $129.99 USD, after which it is $249.99 USD.
