SYNCHRON-ized Special Edition Volume 1 (“Essential Orchestra”) contains over 30 of the most common instruments and ensembles with basic articulations.* Included are two solo violins and two solo cellos, orchestral strings, solo instruments and ensembles of the brass section, woodwinds ranging from piccolo flute to contra bassoon, harp, timpani, drums and percussion as well as celesta and a Bösendorfer Imperial.
What’s more, a glorious new addition is the Steinway & Sons D-274 grand piano, sampled at Synchron Stage Vienna with over 30 velocities! With the Synchron Piano player’s advanced engineering, it is the culmination of years of sampling expertise and inspired technology.
All sounds work perfectly in a variety of musical styles, from pop and rock environments to large symphonic arrangements. With Vienna’s Complementary Discounts you may expand your library step-by-step at any time, according to your needs and budget.
Volume 1 comes with the new, free Vienna Synchron Player that incorporates the most powerful sample playback engine on the market, featuring unprecedented streaming performance while providing a new level of ease-of-use.
* Basic articulations include staccato, détaché, sustained, sforzato, tremolo, pizzicato, legato and portamento performances.
To create the SYNCHRON-ized Special Editions, the original recordings were completely re-edited and enhanced. All velocity levels of each articulation and all articulations of each instrument were refined to match and blend seamlessly, not only within each instrument itself, but also in interaction with the included instruments of the SYNCHRON-ized Special Editions, as well as with all other libraries of the Synchron Series. The Synchron Player also enhances the automatic triggering of release samples and therefore contributes to the overall improved realism of all included instruments.
The Vienna Synchron Player incorporates a specifically designed convolution reverb derived from Vienna MIR Pro, featuring the outstanding ambience of the 540 m² (5,813 sq.ft.) main hall of Synchron Stage Vienna. The perfectly engineered reverberation and placement presets combine customized impulse responses with expertly crafted reverb settings for each instrument or ensemble. By adding the ambience of Synchron Stage Vienna’s Stage A to the relatively dry samples in real-time, the SYNCHRON-ized Special Editions perfectly blend with any other product of the Synchron Series, resulting in a production-ready sound “out of the box”. Of course, the included Steinway D-274 grand piano is not reverberated using these impulse responses since it was recorded with the ambience of Synchron Stage Vienna.
You may expand the instruments of Volume 1 with additional articulations, available with Volume 1 PLUS. You may also broaden your arsenal of instruments as you add Volumes, depending on your needs and budget. The streamlined structure of all the instrument configurations, with their standardized articulations, placement and reverberation presets, keeps the learning curve low and fast!
Other configurations may work but are not actively supported.
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.
Additionally an internet connection on any computer is required to authorize a VSL product.
