Enhanced, optimized and re-edited from the ground up
Starting with the raw, unprocessed original Silent Stage recordings for the Vienna Instruments (VI) Collections Woodwinds I & II, the team worked to increase both their flexibility and ease-of-use for a quick and creative work-flow. The volume levels of all articulations were completely overhauled and provide perfectly matching levels, not only within the articulations of each instrument, but also in interaction with the other included woodwind instruments and with all other instruments of the Synchron Series. This allows for smooth articulation changes without the need for volume corrections, or when crossfading between vibrato and non-vibrato articulations.
Other enhancements include optimized velocity crossfades for all instruments, more velocity layers for Legato Performances and Fast Legatos, vibrato and non-vibrato versions for Legato Performances and Fast Legatos, re-edited regular and fast legatos for trill performances with automatic speed detection, advanced release sample technology for adding perfectly matching note-off samples, extended looped articulations for legatos, fortepianos, sforzatos and trills, and much more.
Vienna Synchron Player
Being a product of the Synchron Series, SYNCHRON-ized Woodwinds comes with the 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. Play short notes, long notes with various attacks, legatos, scalable vibrato intensities and note repetitions intuitively just by moving one or two preconfigured controls, with minimal need to switch articulations manually. With the Synchron Player’s innovative algorithms, the liveliness of these instruments unfolds magically and effortlessly.
For SYNCHRON-ized Woodwinds, Vienna’s software developers incorporated a specifically designed convolution reverb derived from Vienna MIR Pro into the Synchron Player, featuring the outstanding and unique 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. By adding the ambience of Synchron Stage Vienna’s Stage A to the dry samples in real-time, SYNCHRON-ized Woodwinds perfectly blend with every other product in the 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.
Additionally an internet connection on any computer is required to authorize a VSL product.
