Hideaway Studio Proudly Presents: The String Collection…

Warm Evocative Synth Strings….

 The String Collection GUII have always had a bit of a soft spot for evocative cinematic synth strings and especially pseudo realistic string ensembles. Probably as a result I’ve almost subconsciously amassed (and sometimes restored) a small collection of historically important string synths over the years and found to my delight that they blend and layer very nicely with one another. These include my 1938 Novachord, arguably the world’s first polyphonic string synthesizer, the 1972 Eminent 310 Unique which features an early incarnation of the Solina Strings and its direct relative, the ARP Omni. I have also been playing with a number of discrete methods to generate exponential sawtooths, passive tube buffered L/C formant resonators, analog chorus circuits and tube processing. The way most of these early polyphonic instruments worked was very different from the later voltage controlled synths and they very much have a tone and texture of their own. The triple parallel analog BBD based chorus stages with multiple free-running LFOs on the Eminent 310 and Solina alone are significantly more lush and complex than the single stage chorus sections found on later synths. A number of tube processed layers and blends were brought together to form the basic 16 instruments loaded into the layering engine to form the The String Collection…


“This instrument is really made with the creative musician in mind , simple , efficient, reliable and inspiring…”   Claude Samard-Polikar Musical director, musician and arranger for Jean Michel Jarre and award winning film/video games composer. www.claudesamard.com

“I have Gforce VSM, K8U, Synth Magic, Tronsonic, etc. But after playing the demo song against a few of my fav’s, I feel like hideaway really has its own identity and spin on a familiar territory. I like the sound of its playability. It just works! Check it out.”  KK, Chronic Audio NYC www.chronicaudionyc.com

“Just to let you know – I hate you.  I was really only going to look at your page and admire the work.  Suddenly my mouse started clicking away.  Now I have spent all my “play” money and part of my food allowance.  Expect me for dinner at some point if I can ever get away from my computer.  This stuff is just Gorgeous!”  hueynym, KVR Forum

“This is startlingly beautiful! Well done – it’s a privilege to own such a great collection of synths, and I’m happy you share them with the world. I love the sound of real orchestras, but there’s something about the synthetic voices of the 1960s and 1970s that really works well with modal and minor key pop music.”  Ray Savage

“Thanks so much for yet another great sounding, great looking and very cleverly programmed instrument! The price is equally great.  11 stars (of 10)…”  Tpot, KVR Forum
