Amazing realism through imperfection

The musicians of these ensembles were recorded in homogeneous groups with all interactions and irregularities of the live music-making. In the case of Dimension Strings, individual microphones were used for each individual instrument, making it possible to access each voice.

Even the best musicians do not play in unison in “perfect harmony”: Small irregularities in pitch or timing, different timbres or vibrato strengths create the lively sound of an ensemble. The musicians continuously adapt to their fellow players, and these subtle interactions ultimately make up the uniqueness and “magic” of a live performance. With the Auto Humanization function of the Vienna Synchron Player, all imaginable nuances and variations are possible by simply playing on the keyboard and the final sound result amazes with an unprecedented degree of authenticity and liveliness.

Due to the availability of the individual voices, you can easily switch between different group sizes within just one player instance - from the section leader to two players per desk to the entire ensemble. In the mixer of the Vienna Synchron Player, each instrument is assigned an individual impulse response of the Synchron Stage Vienna, so that the exact placement and the surround sound are perfectly preset. The automatable volume faders of the mixer also allow changes to the volume of the individual instruments within the ensemble.

Outstanding acoustics

The Synchron Player contains a custom-made convolution reverb module based on Vienna MIR Pro, which provides the extraordinary ambience of the 540 sqm recording hall of the Synchron Stage Vienna. The perfectly coordinated reverb and positioning presets combine tailor-made impulse responses with masterfully designed reverb settings for all instruments and ensembles. The ambience of “Stage A” of the Vienna Scoring Stage is added to the comparatively dry samples in real time, so that the ensembles of the SYNCHRON-ized Special Edition Vol. 5 not only sound perfectly with every other product in the Synchron Series, but especially with the strings -Presets of the SYNCHRON-ized Special Edition Volumes 1, 2 and 3 are fully compatible.

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.
