Very cool product if you need a 70s style string synth.
TrEr, 04.04.2017
First let me say that the Streichfett definitely has it's limitations. It will be a completely redundant, even useless product if you aren't specifically looking for 70s string synth sounds. That's basicially all you're getting here, although with some very cool features like a REALLY nice sounding delay and some sweet sounding modulation effects.

The Solo section didn't do much for me (but then I don't make music for vintage porn movies...) but the String section is really, really nice. I absolutely love the way it allows a continous sweep through different voices and combinations of voices.

The sound does have a slightly hard edge in the extreme highs that I always find myself eq'ing out. I'm not sure if this is due to the Streichfett being a digital DPS based synth and not analog like the classics that inspired it. Not a big problem though and easily sorted out with a touch of eq.

I absolutely love the Streichfett and highly recommend it but make sure you understand what you're getting before purchase. It is not very versatile, it's very much a niche product.

Classics in one box
Jay-Em, 25.09.2018
For all Jarre- but also Abba, Queen en whatnot- fanatics.

A small box with a giant heart that emulates about every string-machine ever produced from the Eminent to the Roland VP pretty close.

Add a delay stomp box, and it's in Vangelis territory, Couple it with a cheap analog 2-stone Phaser, run that phaser on a lower voltage.. pooff. Instant Jarre.

Having said that. The Streichfett also has an excellent reverb and phaser on-board. The reverb even has a bit of delay added at its max-setting. Spaceyyy!

Every knob has just one function. There's no menu-diving whatsoever. Full midi and midi via usb ( no audio)

I'd say for the money it's a no-brainer for everyone looking for a classic StringMachine sound without the weight (and expense! ) of an actual vintage Solina or Roland VP

Beautiful sound for your music
Krismuz, 04.02.2021
I love it. This high quality box contains very unique sounds but inspiring with every knob touch. Slow strings then hard, short leads, multiple sound layers that can be simply changed. If you want to add more space, mood, ambiance and vibration for your electronic music, more high quality sound that are hard to find in other synths - you have to try Streichfett from Waldorf.
Pros: Quality, Sound quality, sound morph options, with easy, logic interface, Reverb quality
Cons: n/a

Not so analogue
Brian O., 22.01.2015
Nicely made. Lots of features. VERY big sound.

But unfortunately it doesn't sound particularly analogue. I think something like G-Media Virtual String Machine does this far better and more authentic sounding. I don't see myself using this in recordings. However, as a live polysynth its pretty cool.

Great value, but I'm not hearing vintage in this, and I'm not hearing analogue. It sounds quite digital, but that could be the FX. If that doesn't bother you, then its a bargain bit of kit with a fairly epic sound.
