Dan Wilson (aka Hideaway Studio) has released Cinema Strings, another addition to his great series of free Kontakt 4 instruments.
In my ever continuing quest to explore the often forgotten field of classic analog and tube signal processing I got curious and wondered what it might sound like to tap an external signal into the triple free running parallel analog chorus stages in the ARP Omni.
What’s unique about Hideaway Studio instruments is that most of them are a result of experimentation with various analog equipment, and discovering new ways of using that equipment to create interesting sounds. A lot of this experimentation is based around working with DIY tube amps. By combining different signal chains, Hideaway Studio has used those devices to create sounds similar to harpsichords and organs (again, links to all of those instruments are included in the Hideaway Studio page on BPB).
In the case of Cinema Strings, the analog chorus of the ARP Omni analog synthesizer was fed with an FM string patch from the Yamaha TX802 module. After that, the resulting signal was sent through a DIY tube overdrive and a into a tube EQ. Sweet!
