Strng is a string synthesiser inspired by the karplus-strong algorithm. The physical modelling starts with a short burst of noise that then guided by a tuned delay buffer and string tension filter, generates plucked string like sounds. No samples are used. Strng is 16 voice polyphonic and can be controlled with an in app 25 key chromatic keyboard or connect prefered midi controller through USB or Wifi. To further shape the sound two post effects are available, a ping-pong stereo delay and two channel resonant filter controlled by two LFOs. Connect to other apps through AudioBus, inter app audio or load in DAWs as AUv3.

Ratings and Reviews
Occasionally an inexpensive app proves to be indispensable and it restores your faith in cheap apps, which is then disappointed by buying many useless cheap apps hoping each will reward your willingness to invest in them but instead just use up memory.
Given the price you might assume that there is a bigger, better app to do what this one does. There isn’t. Now w/ AUv3 support this is the bigger, better app. Nothing else does strings like this. Laplace is closest but, as it’s not focused on strings it does not give the explicit control over string parameters the way this app does. I cannot replicate the sound with anything else.
This should cost $10-$15 if compared to similar quality apps.
Theee stars in expectation
I have three other apps from Eric, I’m buying this one on the strength of that experience. I’ll update this after I get to know Strng.
Weird thing: bundle price made no sense. It was cheaper to buy Strng and frekvens out right than buy the bundle. Somehow, I don’t think that was what they were trying to accomplish...
I have the bundle!
The controls are somewhat cryptic but once you know what they do (as the on-screen hints indicate) you will find these are very cool apps.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
