Augmented STRINGS combines rich sampled strings with state-of-the-art synthesis in an approachable, inspiring software instrument, giving modern producers immediate access to a comprehensive range of authentic, abstract, and evocative string sounds.

Redefining strings
An evolved hybrid soundtrack for the modern age.

Uniting quality string libraries with state-of-the-art synthesis, Augmented STRINGS is your quickest route to the fresh string sound you’ve always wanted. Go beyond conventional libraries, virtual instruments, and familiar orchestral timbres, and elevate your string sounds to inspiring new heights. Whether you’re a composer, producer, sound designer, or anything in between, effortlessly control an enhanced hybrid ensemble that’ll set your production alight.

A new string palette
Augmented STRINGS’ hybrid palette unlocks the truly exciting and unique power that strings can bring to your projects. This isn’t just a selection of string samples; these are traditional instruments transformed into sounds unlike anything you’ve ever heard.

Layer your own sound
Build your own ensemble with Augmented STRINGS’ multi-engine flexibility. Experiment with 2 layers, each containing 2 sound sources, and weave your own custom combination of sampling and synthesis for a string sound that transcends the real thing.

Authentic to abstract
Immersive, orchestral, cinematic, and everything in between. With over 60 articulations, multiple mic setups, solo & ensemble performances, 4 types of synthesis, and built-in FX, explore a near-limitless spectrum of modern string textures and timbres for any style.

Morphing power
Augmented STRINGS’ Morph control gives you truly unique & ever-evolving sound with one click. Unlock huge sonic territory within a single sound, move and transform between Layers A and B, and adjust up to 8 custom destinations - all with one control.

Transform sound instantly
Make dramatic changes and tap into your musical expression in real-time with a streamlined set of macro controls, designed to intelligently change multiple parameters for sweeping sound tweaks in real-time. Perfect dynamics, variety, and individuality when you need it.

Deeper customization
An instrument that can do both: Augmented STRINGS is quick and intuitive on the surface, but deep and advanced when you need it to be. Weave intricate modulation, create dynamic sequences, customize sound sources, and more.

sound between the lines
Discover entirely new string timbres on an entirely new scale.

On one side, a complete recorded library of solo & ensemble string samples. On the other, 4 ultra-powerful synth engines. In the sonic space between these two elements, Augmented STRINGS forges fresh and invigorating sounds that are yours to discover - and with up to 8 extra custom destinations, the Morph control is the key that unlocks a world of musical expression with a single touch, where any configuration and character is possible.

Augmented Strings’ built-in sample library has been recorded and curated to be every bit as delicate, urgent, and expressive as conducting your own personal ensemble.

22 musicians performed as soloists and as an ensemble, with over 60 articulations across double bass, cello, viola, and violin. The recordings were captured in detail with world-class microphones and preamps in various positions, ensuring that every sample resonates with lifelike space, detail, and energy. Whether you need an evocative single instrument melody, a huge tremolo sustain, or anything in between, this library ticks the boxes.

Discover sounds from 4 synth engines, from subtle textural embellishment to in-your-face soundscapes: Virtual Analog, Granular, Wavetable, and Harmonic.

Inspired by state-of-the-art synthesis architecture from the minds behind Pigments and V Collection, this is more than a list of synth presets. These are entire instruments within an instrument, responsive and tactile, providing everything from destructive sub-bass to digital pads brimming with harmonic detail.

_Simple and intuitive
Transform an intimate solo violin into sprawling theatrical density with a few clicks.

Augmented STRINGS is built around a streamlined interface, designed to give you the exact sound you seek in as little time as possible. Reach out, interact with its quick-fire controls, and savor an instant, intuitive sonic response that’ll become your new go-to.

_Advanced sound design
Rearrange, modulate, and customize every aspect of your hybrid ensemble.

Augmented STRINGS’ simple interface and diverse preset library brings quick results to keep your flow moving - but when you want to get complex, you can. The Advanced panel takes you deep into the inner workings of the instrument, giving you detailed control over your sound sources, modulation, performance, and beyond.

Wow, thanks. Is this the full version or the free demo?
  Member 19.02.2016 47
I installed it, it is the FULL VERSION, working with a lot of presets than the older release, ;) Thanks V.R Team.

Has the full features, like Advanced tweaks, and as I said, a lot of presets, not the Intro version, I repeat, is the full version :)

P.S: This, and Augmented Voices, for me, are 2 very good products, the Advanced sections has a lot of features for a very deep Sound Design, and If you combine both plugins, +Fun, he he.
  Member 9.10.2014 52
Did you have the free intro version before hand? Do you know if there will be any issues trying to install this if the intro version is already installed? thanks
  Member 19.02.2016 47
Yes, I haved it, but Uninstalled all my Arturia Free VST's with Revo Uninstaller Pro with an Advanced Clean of Registry Option inside Revo. Then, With All Clear, I installed in this order:

Arturia.Pigments.v3.7.0.CE [SYNTH] [SCENE]
Arturia.Augmented.STRINGS.v1.1.0.CE [STRINGS] [SCENE]
Arturia.Augmented.VOICES.v1.0.0.CE [VOICES] [SCENE]

And all Works Perfectly in Windows 11 Pro (21H2)

I hope you guys find the way to install this releases from V.R, have a nice time :)

Having trouble with the end of the install on a Windows 10 PC.
Windows 10 Version 21H2 OS BUILD: 19044.1706

"Unable to execute file:

CreateProcess failed; code 2.
The system cannot find the file specified."

Any ideas please?

Same here, I'm having various issues with these VR Arturia releases.
  Member 24.02.2019 5
This worked for me for both Augmented Strings and Augmented Voices:

Ignore the message about "databaseCreator.exe".
Go to your DAW (Ableton 11 for me) and add the VST. When I first start the app, I got an error message of a missing "playlist.png" file.
Close the app (Strings or Voices).
Go to this folder - C://Program Data/Ableton/Shared/images/vc_8images/packs
Copy any PNG file there and then rename it "playlist.png".
Restart the app.
  Member 1.02.2022 43
You need to run the app as admin (once) for it to create the database because of its location. It's a somewhat common issue with Arturia products. Also, it doesn't hurt to change the permissions after the db is created. That will (probalby) fix other issues, like favorites tagging possibly not working until you do the latter.

Do these Augmented instruments now integrate with Analog Lab V 5.5?

Edit - Answered my own question - Yes they Do :)
  Member 21.09.2015 103
Same trouble like dudtwo!
Same alert.
I have installation of Arturia Synth Collection V v.7.0, after installation of Augmented Strings I lost presets for all collection (connection with synths and presets lost).
I tried to install only Augmented Strings, but in this way I got same alert like dudtwo.
I have same trouble with Augmented Voices, same alert.
Obviously something is wrong.
I have Win10 v.20H2 build 19042.867.
  Member 1.12.2021 2
Everything works fine for me , but I can't find preset when I click on the search preset bar...
  Member 15.10.2017 960
The installer wants to know what the "Common Data destination" is.
How the fuck do i know? I have never heard to a "Common Data destination" in my life!
I might assume it is the ProgramData folder, but WHY does it have "D:\Arturia\" selected by default?

My (D) drive is my alternate Win10 drive I have not touched for many months.

I DO have version 1.0.0 installed and in registry HKLM it lists as install directory: "C:\ProgramData\Arturia\Augmented STRINGS"

Augmented Strings v1.0.0 V.R did not have that as an option on install.
I see that Augmented Voices and Keys & Piano Collection have this same strange preselected directory.
The Synths V-Collection has the typical "C:\ProgramData\Arturia" selected, so that kind of confirms what this is, but it makes me wonder.
"just install" ....really?
  Member 6.04.2014 1
Looks like whoever complied the installer didn't do a good job. According to some of the paths, his/her name is Jenkins! LOL!
  Member 1.02.2022 43
The installer you're using is compiled by V.R. The one by Arturia doesn't have this problem. The error you're seeing is because V.R. decided to default to D:\arturia some files, but the original installer puts those in C:\ProgramData\Arturia and V.R. didn't change enough of the app to make that actually work. The jenkins stuff is the Arturia dev's fallback path. Yes it is somewhat funny interesting to find out what that is, but the installer mess is mostly V.R.'s.

Additionally, this V.R. installer fails to install the sqlite.dll and the images needed by this app. You must have them from the original Arturia installer or another V.R. installer that has those, e.g. the one for Pigments.

not working for me..
as standalone or vst3
win 10..
does not load..
"unexpected error on GUI loading"
  Member 26.11.2021 38
I got an error on GUI loading...
  Member 1.02.2022 43
That's due to missing vc8_images in this V.R. installer. Either get them from the Arturia installer (best choice) or another V.R. installer that has them, like their Pigments one... although back when I last checked out their Pigments installer (3.5) it had lower size & quality images (with more jaggies) than the original Pigments. It's obscure why V.R. did that as that only saved 30 MB.
  Member 21.09.2015 103
Same like birdz on Win10!!!
With Strings and Voices.
  Member 19.10.2018 345

Thanks a lot !
This is working and no need to reinstall other stuff !

Do you have the one for Augmented Voices ?
Anyway Thanks !
  Member 26.11.2021 38
This also worked for me! If you had a problem with the playlist.png, then it should also work with both voices and strings. It fixed both for me.
  Member 26.01.2013 2
Buenos dias, instalando primero strings con los archivos compartidos ayer, luego al instalar voces ya no da ningún problema. Por lo menos ese a sido mi caso, Saludos!!
  Member 21.04.2018 63
I think I found a way to fix the installation in windows so you don't get any errors.
I changed the data installation directory from d:\arturia to C:\ProgramData\Arturia\Presets
after that, it installed everything and worked. also worked for the voices.
hope this helps.
