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.
