“The Streichfett module has long been admired for its amazing sound quality, flexibility, and simplicity in the creation and exploration of synthesized strings, as well as many other textures,” states James Sajeva, Director of Music Technology Brands at Korg, USA, Inc. “This all-new full-size keyboard version, with even more power and features, is a very exciting and unique addition to the Waldorf line!”

In addition to the engine enhancements, the STVC adds an all-new vocoder function to the Streichfett. Housed in the same durable chassis, the Vocoder features excellent speech intelligibility, with freeze mode, a fully polyphonic carrier, gender modification, morphing, and effects like phaser and reverb.

The STVC ($899) will make its world-wide debut at the NAMM Show 2018 at the Korg USA booth, Hall B, #8802.
