A Thick, Classic Sound in Your Pocket

I've never played a real Solina before -- and, given the prices of vintage gear, probably never will. This app gets me as close as I need to that thick 70s string sound. On the original gear, the envelope options were a little crude; and with some settings, you'll hear a sucking sound at the end of notes. If vintage is what you want, that's the true vintage sound. If, at some point, the developer adds an option to use modern, polyphonic envelopes in place of the single, vintage-style envelope, I'll turn it on and leave it on. In the meantime, I'm enjoying this classic sound.

"The string machine you can't afford"

That's what this sounds like. For a few bucks.

For me, it's directly out of my early new wave dreams. You could buy a used iPhone and a used MIDI controller and have *that* sound, ready to go for considerably less than the real thing. Easy easy buy.

I am so grateful that this app exists. I’ve wanted that classic Solina String Ensemble sound for forever and this app delivers. I really can’t speak to the bad reviews, the app has never been buggy for me nor has it crashed. A def secret weapon for any keyboard player.
