Sonivox and Plugivery have announce the launch of Solina Redux, a highly-expressive Arp Solina string ensemble emulation. Sonivox Solina Redux will be available from pro audio resellers and music stores around the world at the introductory retail price of $129.99 USD May 25-June 30, 2018, after which its price will be $249.99 USD.
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 beautiful match that produces unique sonic textures.
The Arp Solina was the preeminent string ensemble in the 1970s, 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 patches create 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.
- A two-in-one Arp Solina and virtual analog synthesizer
- Both synths hot-rodded to include multi-mode filters (low-pass, high-pass, band-pass, notch, peak) with individual LFO and envelope control
- Three modeled effects including the Solina “Ensemble” effect, phaser, and vibrato
- Two fully-programmable step sequencers including step control over filters and panning
