Applied Acoustics Systems (AAS) has released String Studio VS-2 for Mac OS X (10.6 or later) and Windows (XP, Vista, 7, or 8). It’s an updated 64-bit (AAX-, AU-, and VST-compatible) version of its original String Studio VS-1 string modeling synthesizer plug-in.

Edit lets users tweak and create sounds by combining innovative acoustic modeling parameters and classic synth features. FX adds new Equalizer and Compressor modules.
String Studio VS-2 also simplifies structured organization, backup, and sharing of sounds. The factory library has l over 600 production-ready sounds across 11 categories.
