76 String Players
With 20 first violins, 20 second violins, 14 violas, 12 cellos and 10 double basses, these lavish ensembles lend themselves perfectly well to soaring emotive themes as well as action-packed scores, producing that larger-than-life cinematic sound that Synchron Stage Vienna’s film scoring clients are returning to over and over again. The Viennese musicians, famous for their unparalleled string sound, played every note with an attitude and emotion that lives on in this new version of Appassionata Strings.
In addition to the previously existing articulations of Appassionata Strings, our editors added non-vibrato sustains, legatos and portamentos for more versatile and flexible expressive options. The team even managed to improve the already great sounding legato transitions. What’s more, new sustains with very soft attacks allow for especially gentle beginnings of notes. The volume levels of all articulations were completely overhauled and provide perfectly balanced levels not only among the ensembles themselves, but also in interaction with Synchron Strings I and SYNCHRON-ized Chamber Strings.
For SYNCHRON-ized Appassionata Strings, our software developers added a specifically designed convolution reverb derived from Vienna MIR Pro to the Synchron Player, featuring the outstanding and unique ambience of the 540 m² (5,813 sq.ft.) main hall of Synchron Stage Vienna. The masterfully engineered mixer presets provide perfect placement and reverberation, combining customized impulse responses with expertly crafted reverb settings for each group of the ensemble. By adding the ambience of Synchron Stage Vienna’s Stage A to the dry samples in real-time, SYNCHRON-ized Appassionata Strings blend perfectly with all other products of our Synchron Series, resulting in a production-ready sound “out of the box”.

Vienna Instruments require the ViennaKey!
This USB protection device by eLicenser (by Steinberg, formerly Syncrosoft) is not included in any collection, it is a separate item you have to get additionally. So you’ll have to order at least one ViennaKey with your first purchase. It will be put inside the shopping basket automatically but can be deleted if not required. Customers who order the complete SYMPHONIC CUBE will get one ViennaKey for free (not shown in the basket). If you already own another eLicenser USB protection device (e.g., from Steinberg or Arturia), you can use it for the VIENNA INSTRUMENTS, too. Each dongle can store up to 100 product licenses.
