is a MIDI instrument representing the string section of the orchestra, especially the
violins. It is General midi code 48, and is usually the best of the 128 Standard General Midi
instruments for use when a massed string sound is required. With a high quality
sound-card in the computer, or an attached Midi Keyboard with good quality
orchestral sound, this can sound very realistic, but on the low range midi
devices, it tends to sound very electronic.
