The SYNCHRON-ized Special Edition Volume 2 (“Extended Orchestra”) contains more than 40 instruments and ensembles with basic articulations*: Chamber Strings, solo instruments and ensembles of woodwinds and brass, e.g., the famous Epic Horns (8 players), saxophones, alto flute, clarinet in Bb 2, oboe d’amore, keyboard instruments such as prepared piano, harpsichord, harmonium and the Vienna Konzerthaus Organ, upright bass, acoustic and electric guitars (Overdrive), as well as a new set of percussion instruments from our Synchron Percussion. Additionally, you’ll find bonus articulations of our popular Appassionata Strings, a lush string ensemble with 56 players.
All sounds work perfectly in a variety of musical styles, from pop and rock environments to large symphonic arrangements. With our Complementary Discounts you may expand your library step-by-step at any time, according to your needs and budget. Volume 2 comes with our 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 & 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 our Synchron Series, resulting in a production-ready sound “out of the box”. Of course, any instruments already recorded with the ambience of Synchron Stage Vienna are not additionally reverberated using these impulse responses.
You may expand the instruments of Volume 2 with additional articulations, available with Volume 2 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!
