I did a quick clip of this device I posted about on the effects forum, http://www.thegearpage.net/board/showthread.php?t=134928. It's basically an adjustable swell device with some thick analog chorus to give the impression of strings. So if you play from direct silence you get the swell or you can just play normally and get a lot of nice chorus. It's very unsimilar to say a Boss CE-2 type chorus. So, this is Strat into MTI ADL-100 Analog String Ensemble, into Soundblaster 16 (circa '95 whose noise is only equalled by its lack of top end), with some plug-in delay added. Treehorn with Strings Kinda cool, huh?
