Description : The virtual instrument Solina V reproduces all the features of the prototype, but it also has many additions for a more detailed study of reproduced sounds. The Solina V popup window can be presented in two modes. The closed one reproduces the original appearance and the real controls. The raised top cover of the instrument (open mode) gives you access to a deeper adjustment of all sound parameters, as well as effects.
The original instrument made it possible to play bass and solo parts simultaneously on the same keyboard. In the virtual instrument, the separation of the manuals into the upper and the bass is saved and even acquired advanced functionality. The tool can work both in full split mode (Split) and in blend mode (Layer), and the section point can be changed.
As for the sound, it is simply magnificent. Retro-sounding turns out by itself, but you can create quite modern tones. Let’s say, a ready-made Air String1 preset is released for voice acting at least now. In general, the timbre palette of the synthesizer is not limited to ensemble sounds. In particular, a variety of nagging bass sounds pretty good.
