String Studio VS-2 + Harmonic Geometry Bundle


String Studio VS-2 is a string modeling synthesizer plug-in that swaps the traditional oscillator sound source for a string.

With its picks, bows, hammers, fingers, frets, dampers, and soundboards, it is a unique blend of acoustic modeling and regular synth-control features—you won’t believe how crazy you can go with a simple string.



We have streamlined String Studio and brought it to a whole new level—
it will change your perspective on strings.

Direct access to FX shortcuts, performance settings, and the arpeggiator.


String Studio VS-2 will match your playing style or musical context with ease thanks to the tap tempo and sync to host clock options; poly- or monophonic with note priority keyboard modes; up-to-4-voice unison; glide and legato functions; and the flexible vibrato.


Ready, willing, and able, String Studio VS-2’s arpeggiator offers various syncing resolutions, playing algorithms, and rhythmic patterns that will spruce up any chord progressions into percolating melodies or pulsing sequences.



A unique blend of acoustic modelling and regular synth features.


A string module lies at the heart of String Studio. Adjust the material to control its tone and how it vibrates. From nylon to steel, from short to long decaying sounds. Listen to it bare naked, through the distorted ear of a pickup or via the filter of a soundboard.


The exciter module is where you choose how the string is played. Select a pick for plucked sounds, play it with a bow for sustained sound or use a hammer for chords and percussive sounds.

Felt, quirks, and buzzes

As in a real instrument, strings interact with dampers, frets and fingers. This controls decays and dynamics breathing life into sound with natural noises, grain and warmth.


Use soft or steep low-pass, high-pass, band-pass, notch, or formant filters to sculpt your sound. Animate their action with a rich LFO and snappy envelopes.

Body shopping

The soundboard of a string instruments radiates vibrations from the strings. Choose a body type and size to colour the sound with specific resonances and add acoustic character.



You’ll love the pure raw sound of String Studio VS-2, but the built-in effects will bring it to so many places that you’ll enjoy having them on hand.

And you have a chock-full of them to choose from: compressor, equalizer, delay, distortion, phaser, chorus, flanger, wah wah and notch filters, and reverb.



The community has good things to say about String Studio…

  • Huge sound palette

    String Studio delivers a variety of convincing stringed-instruments emulations, but that's not its real charm. It offers a huge sound palette, as its generous preset library attests. The library is spread across 17 categories, most named after stringed instruments, but the presets in those categories range from emulations to strange instrument hybrids to unstable sounds that you won't find in nature.

    Len Sasso, Electric Musician
  • Exciting and powerful

    [String Studio] VS-1 is an exciting and powerful tool that goes beyond the realistic simulation of string instruments and puts forth a new approach to sound design by giving new meaning to the word virtual.

    Robert P. Oleysyck, Remix
  • Sounds that cause heads to turn

    Being able to create the kind of unique sounds String Studio produces will more then justify the bucks to people who like the sonic equivalent of white-water rafting. I give a lot of points to software capable of creating sounds that cause heads to turn.

    Craig Anderton, Keyboard
  • Another great product

    Well, just when I thought these guys couldn't out do themselves, they go and do it! From analogue Solina style strings to completely new and original sounds, they are all to be found under the bonnet of String Studio! Another great product from a great software company.

    Jake Wherry, The Herbaliser
