Synchron Stage hanging basin & Tam Tams

Synchron Cymbals & Gongs I is a decoupling from VSL´s Synchron Percussion I-Collection and contains 2 Zildjian hanging cymbals (40 cm and 45 cm diameter), 2 pairs of cymbals (Zildjian Constantinople Orchestra Medium Light with 50 cm diameter and Meinl Symphonic Extra Heavy with 55 cm cm diameter), as well as 2 Tam Tams (Wuhan; 100 cm and 120 cm).

The suspension basin (suspended cymbals) are available in 40 and 45 cm in diameter, the two Beck pairs ( "a due" basin) (50 and 55 cm) are available in two sizes. The hanging cymbals were struck with various mallets, and variants with brooms and (double bass) bows are also available. Drags (both cymbal plates ground against each other), scratches and sizzle variants were also included in the pair of cymbals. These effect sounds invite you to experiment and can serve as a source of inspiration for new compositions.

The Tam Tams have a diameter of 100 cm or 120 cm. Not only were single hits recorded with different velocities, but also dynamic tremolos, swishes and various "scratches" (scratching noises). The latter are particularly popular in the areas of film music and sound design. The tam-tams were also marked with a (double bass) bow and made to vibrate.

3 instruments - 12 microphones

Each instrument was recorded with 12 microphones. You can choose between four different microphone positions (Standard Library) or seven different microphone positions (Full Library) and mix them in the Vienna Instruments or Vienna Instruments Pro player as well as in the mixing hosts Vienna Ensemble or Vienna Ensemble Pro.

The included presets of balanced microphone mixes serve as the perfect starting point for your own creations. The natural surround sound of Stage A was captured with a Decca tree in stereo, further microphone settings allow 5.1 and even Auro 3D playback in 9.1.

Flexible sound design

The natural volume behavior as well as the sound character of the instruments was retained during both recording and editing. You can shape the sound according to your taste in the Vienna Instruments and Vienna Instruments Pro players as well as in the mixing hosts Vienna Ensemble and Vienna Ensemble Pro. The supplied presets offer a finely coordinated source material for this.
