The Power
of Morphing STRINGS’ advanced morphing control gives you a truly unique and ever-evolving sound with just one click. Unlock vast sonic territory with a single sound, move and transform between layers A and B, and set up to 8 custom directions – all with a single control.

Morphing: The
Sound Between the Strings
Discover brand new string sounds on a whole new scale.
On the one hand, a complete recorded library of solo and ensemble string samples. On the other hand, there are 4 super-powerful synthesizers. In the sonic space between these two elements, Augmented STRINGS creates fresh and invigorating sounds for you to discover, and with 8 additional custom destinations, Morph control is the key to unlocking a one-touch world of musical expression where any configuration and character is possible.

The built-in Augmented Strings sample library has been recorded and selected to be as delicate, relevant and expressive as conducting your own personal ensemble.
22 musicians performed as soloists and as an ensemble, with over 60 articulations on double bass, cello, viola and violin. The recordings were filmed in detail using world-class microphones and preamps in various positions, ensuring that each sample resonates with realistic space, detail and energy. Whether you need an evocative single instrument melody, a huge tremolo sustain, or something in between, this library has you covered.

Discover sounds from 4 synths, from subtle texture embellishments to eye-catching soundscapes: Virtual Analog, Granular, Wavetable and Harmonic.

Inspired by modern synthesis architecture from the minds behind Pigments and the V Collection, this is more than a list of synth presets. They are whole instruments within an instrument, sensitive and tactile, delivering everything from devastating sub-bass to digital pads filled with harmonic detail.
