This collection brings twelve of the widespread and popular VSL woodwind instruments to the large hall (Stage A) of the Synchron Stage Vienna. In order to meet the high standards of the SYNCHRON-ized libraries, the team of the Viennese sound editors worked intensively for a whole year on this special collection, with the main focus on a sound that is as natural, balanced and finely coordinated as possible.

Fundamentally expanded, optimized and newly edited

Based on the original, unedited sample recordings from the Silent Stage for the Woodwinds I & II Collections, the aim was to optimize flexibility and user-friendliness for a quick, creative workflow. The volumes of all articulations have been completely revised, which ensures perfectly matched levels not only within the articulations of the individual instruments, but also in interaction with the other woodwind instruments included as well as with all other instruments in the Synchron series. This enables seamless changes between different articulations or transitions between vibrato and non-vibrato playing styles without the need for manual volume adjustments.

The Velocity Crossfades have also been extensively optimized for all instruments. The Velocity Layers for Legato Performances and Fast Legatos have been expanded. New are the vibrato and non-vibrato playing styles for all legato performances and fast legatos as well as looped tones for all sustains, legatos, fortepianos, sforzati and trills. The normal and fast legati for trill performances have been further optimized for the automatic detection of the game speed. Finally, the advanced release sample technology ensures that the perfectly matching note-off sample is automatically added to every note, whether played short or long.

SYNCHRONized Woodwinds GUI

Vienna Synchron Player

As a product of the Synchron Series, SYNCHRON-ized Woodwinds is supplied with the new Vienna Synchron Player. Thanks to its powerful playback engine, it offers unmatched streaming performance and, at the same time, maximum ease of use. Short and long notes with different approaches, legati, finely graduated vibrato intensities or tone repetitions can be controlled intuitively by operating a few predefined controllers, so that manual switching of articulations is reduced to a minimum. With the help of the innovative algorithms you can effortlessly achieve the highest level of realism and expressiveness.

Outstanding acoustics

For SYNCHRON-ized Woodwinds, the VSL software programmers implemented a specially developed convolution reverb in the Synchron Player, which 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 reverb parameters have been individually adapted for the respective ensembles by the experienced sound engineers of the Synchron Stage. Since the space of the Synchron Stage Vienna is added to the dry samples in real time, the SYNCHRON-ized Woodwinds deliver an instantly usable surround sound "out-of-the-box" and also merge seamlessly with all other products in the Synchron Series.

Expansion set

The Expansion Set includes runs, arpeggios, and third trills for most of these instruments. There are also mordente (for piccolo, flute and oboe), slap tongue and a variety of multiphonics of the second Bb clarinet. With the time stretch feature of the Synchron Player, the tempo of all these phrases can be changed in real time or synchronized with the host tempo. The expansion set also includes “Pure Legatos” and “Intervall-Marcati”. Here you can hear the note transitions played from a start to a (non-looped) target note. Since each interval step is followed by an individually played sustain tone, these performances sound extremely natural and lively.
