Synchron Pianos Bundle - A Grand Collection
This bundle includes four extraordinary grand pianos that were captured on Stage A and Stage B of Synchron Stage Vienna.
Synchron Concert D-274 features a Steinway & Sons D-274, Hamburg Model that was recorded at the main hall (Stage A) of Synchron Stage Vienna. With a length of 274 cm (almost 9 ft.) and a weight of almost 500 kg (1,100 lb.), it is the flagship model of the world-renowned piano manufacturer. Especially when competing with orchestras, the D-274 impresses with its tremendous assertive sonic volume and power – which is not surprising considering its soundboard of almost two square meters (21.5 sq.ft.). Over 4,000 samples per key and almost 20,000 samples per microphone position provide an unprecedented level of authenticity, liveliness, and feel!
The Yamaha CFX features a hand-crafted, full size concert grand that represents the pinnacle of the manufacturer's tradition of piano crafting. It was captured at Stage A of Synchron Stage Vienna with up to 4,200 samples per key. The instrument’s distinctive sound can be characterized as precise, bright, clear, powerful and assertive, lending itself to any genre of classical, romantic or contemporary piano music and from solo pieces to chamber and concert works. Yamaha’s award-winning performance reproducing system “Disklavier ENSPIRE PRO“ guaranteed utmost precision, resolution and consistency during the entire recording process. You may select from six different presets ("Concert", "Intimate", "Player", "Pop", "Ambience", "Mighty") and edit them to your liking with the musician-friendly user interface of the Vienna Synchron Pianos player.
The Blüthner 1895 is a particularly glorious example of the legendary German piano manufacturer’s “golden tone”. The beautifully refurbished instrument is equipped with Blüthner’s patented Aliquot system that uses additional resonating strings in the treble register, resulting in a lyrical, warm and rich sound with lots of overtones. The instrument, recorded at Stage B of Synchron Stage Vienna, is extremely versatile and well suited for soloists looking for a slightly different, personal piano sound. The Blüthner lends itself extremely well to song accompaniments and chamber music settings, as well as to pop songs and ballads where other concert grands sound too large and obtrusive. Presets like “Intimate” or “Vintage” bring out this special quality even more.
Viennese Tradition of Piano Making
The Bösendorfer Grand Upright 130 incorporates the experience of almost two centuries of grand piano making. Although physically an upright piano, the instrument surprises with subtle nuances and a powerful bass, and yet with a pure and pristine piano sound, without the broader tonal colors usually added by the large body of a concert grand.

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.
