Boing2 is a bowed string model.

Oscillation is produced with a friction calculation applied to a dispersive waveguide string with oversampling rates of up to 16x. The string loop includes a mass-spring modeled bridge. The body resonator consists of a mass-spring "air tone" model and a 5 band banded waveguide.

I think I might be giving it the benefit of the doubt but I created instrumentals with this and it was so amazing. I had control over almost everything. It looks complex but when you play with it for a while and you get a hang of it, it's a good free synth

Complex but worth it, lack of presets is a bummer but still very fun to use. Can make some very natural/realistic string sounds as well as very glitchy/synthy stuff depending on the settings. Worth spending some time with

It would be actually very easy for us to use it if we knew a little bit about physical bowed string instruments...

Does it comes with presets? if you guys add 20+ presets a lot more of people will get them.. I generally take presets and modify them a little bit, but building strings from 0? Pain in the ass!

Takes a lot to shape the sound. But it's ok. :)

I'm sure you could get some great sounds out of it, but it's so unbelievably complicated that I barely bothered. It's like it has its own internal physics engine for the bowing of the string; if you get the settings wrong, it sounds like when a real life violin hits a dud note. Crazy.

Nice, weird plucked-synth kind of sound. Hated the interface - Made it needlessly difficult to use.
