The Vienna Symphonic Library introduces the groundbreaking Synchron Solo Cello, captured in the exceptional acoustics of Synchron Stage Vienna's large hall. This masterpiece blends musical excellence, emotional depth, and technical precision to deliver authentic and captivating performances embodying pure artistry.

Performed by Florian Eggner, acclaimed soloist and member of the Synchron Stage Orchestra, the Synchron Solo Cello showcases his dedication and expertise. As co-founder of the Grammy-nominated Eggner Trio, Florian Eggner brings a wealth of experience from prestigious venues worldwide.

Creating a solo strings virtual instrument is a pinnacle of sampling artistry, balancing the instrument’s full expressive complexity with ease of use. The Vienna team has refined the recording process, empowering musicians with guidance yet allowing creative freedom, resulting in a software instrument that sounds authentic from the outset.

Florian Eggner's extensive sampling sessions at Synchron Stage Vienna have yielded a vast array of articulations. Short notes include spiccatos, staccatos, détachés, ricochet, and saltando. Long notes offer various vibrato styles, attacks, releases, and slides. Legato variants span normal, agile, slurred, portamento, and lyrical styles. Additional techniques such as sforzato, crescendos, diminuendos, tremolos, trills, harmonics, pizzicatos, and col legno further enrich the expressive palette.

Enhancing these capabilities, the Synchron Player features a new Crossfade Editor for seamless blending and layering of articulations, alongside a Sequence Controller for automated articulation switching. With customizable presets and limitless creative possibilities, users can tailor their musical expressions to perfection.

Multiple Microphone Positions

In order to capture the performances in the large Stage A, our recording engineers used multiple high-end microphone arrays, affording an abundance of options for creating your individual sound. The Full Library features three different sets of close microphones with tube, ribbon and condenser mic options, two pairs of mid mics, another ribbon pair a bit further away, as well as the Decca tree with additional surround and high surround outriggers.
