Synchro Dimension GUI 1

“Sul tasto” - played close to the fingerboard

This collection contains five string ensembles that were exclusively played “sul tasto”. In contrast to “con sordino” (with mute), this way of playing is characterized by the fact that the bow is brought close to the fingerboard, making the sound less overtone and thus softer, more noisy and more “breathing”, similar to a flute played in pianissimo. SYNCHRONIZED Dimension Strings III contains the “sul tasto” played articulations staccato, détaché, sustenuto, tremolo, tremolo with fast approach, tremolo slow, sforzato, legato, portamento, legato repetitions and spiccato repetitions.

The peculiarity of the synchronous player , being able to increase the number of players one by one, opens up completely new possibilities to start arrangements out of nowhere (“dal niente”) or to let them end as quietly as a whisper (“al niente”). Since the room portion is added to the relatively dry samples in real time, a finished sound image is immediately created that can be used in a production "out-of-the-box", ie without further post-processing.

Synchro Dimension GUI 2

Maximum realism through imperfection

The instruments of the SYNCHRONIZED Dimension Strings III were recorded in homogeneous groups with all interactions and irregularities of the live music-making. Individual microphones for each individual player allow access to each voice. The new Synchron Player offers you the wide range of articulations of the SYNCHRON-ized Dimension Strings III in a clear manner, so that you can navigate playfully and lightly through the different playing styles.

For example, after selecting a preset, you can easily switch between different group sizes within an instance - from the section leader to two players per desk to the entire ensemble. The internal mixer assigns individual impulse responses to each player and also enables the volume automation within a group of instruments.

Outstanding surround sound

The convolution reverb implemented in the Vienna Synchron Player is based on the innovative Vienna MIR Pro technology and precisely reproduces the unique acoustics of the 540 m2 Stage A of the Synchron Stage Vienna . Tailor-made presets are available for ideal placement in the room, for which the impulse responses and reverberation parameters were individually adapted by VSL's experienced sound engineers not only for the respective string groups, but also for the individual instruments contained.

Product activation:
Vienna Instruments and software require a ViennaKey !
The USB dongle from eLicenser (Steinberg, formerly Syncrosoft) is not included in the Vienna Instruments, but must be purchased separately. So you have to order at least one ViennaKey together with your first collection. It is automatically placed in the basket with the first instrument, but can be deleted again if you do not need it. Each ViennaKey can store up to 100 product licenses.
You also need an internet connection on any computer to authorize a ViennaKey.
