Free String Ensemble Virtual Instrument, LABS Synth Strings

Spitfire Audio has introduced LABS Synth Strings, a free virtual instrument for Mac & Windows that recreates the sound of classic ’70s string synths.

Here’s what they have to say about it:

These classic synth textures have been created from the infamous Solina String Ensemble — a 70s string synthesiser, used on countless iconic disco and rock records. From fuzzy, warm vibrations to bright stabs that cut through the mix, LABS Synth Strings has been recorded at Spitfire HQ by Harry Wilson & Hannah Roberts-Owen, and comes complete with sampled modulation and processed pads — equally at home on a Herbie-style record as it is on a Blade Runner-style blockbuster template.

It’s available now as a free download.
