FX Strings

Stringscapes

Ready-to-use musical elements and textures, from ethereal pads to pulsating patterns

Large 50-piece string ensemble, divided in 6 sections:

14 first violins, 10 second violins, 6 first violas, 6 second violas, 8 cellos, 6 double basses

Total flexibility of combinations for infinite creative possibilities

16 mixer channels to create your own customized sound

A host of perfectly balanced mixer presets, from optimized stereo room mixes to immersive audio

Pulsating textures, suspense-packed tensions, risers, hits, clusters, and much more — Big Bang Orchestra: Regulus reveals an abundance of effects and unusual playing techniques, originally recorded for the Synchron FX Strings I Collection.

Evoke mesmerizing soundscapes and inspiring loops played by a 50-piece string section, from lightly bowed whispers to rumbling swarms. Easily create a panoply of colors and entire sonic worlds by simply holding one or two keys, and change intensity or add variety by moving pre-configured controllers.

Just like its bigger brother Synchron FX Strings, BBO: Regulus offers production-ready musical elements in these categories: Spherical textures, character textures, glissandos, rises and hits, clusters, harmonic effects, pizzicato effects, special pads, and "inspiration crossfades". Dig into this treasure trove of tonal and atonal recordings and combine anything with everything to create your personal, unique tone.

While 50 microphones were used to capture an array of positions, from close to ambient, the Synchron Player's integrated mixer presents you with 16 channels that offer close mic signals of each ensemble, front and back mics, Decca tree, main surround, and high surround signals. A host of perfectly balanced mixer presets is readily available, from optimized stereo room mixes to immersive audio applications.

BBO: Regulus is a full-featured product with all the categories of effects and textures of Synchron FX Strings I, including the multitude of microphone positions of the Full Library. When you upgrade to Synchron FX Strings I, you get more than double the data size, with additional half-tremolo/ponticello bowing, denser and quicker played variants of all textures, alpha chord textures, slower glissandos and runs, and more.

FX Wodwinds

Growling Lows and Virtuosic Highs

Ensemble of low woodwinds (8 musicians)

Ensemble of high woodwinds (10 musicians)

Unison and octave notes with a wide variety of articulations

Clusters, runs, arpeggios

Change tempo using the time-stretch feature or sync to host

Recorded with multiple microphones at Synchron Stage Vienna

This all-new collection of woodwind tones and phrases offers two main categories: Low Winds and High Winds.

The Low Winds section consists of an ensemble of three contrabassoons, two bassoons, one contrabass clarinet and two bass clarinets. Together, they perform the fundamental lows, with articulations such as short notes (both bold and agile), long notes, espressivo, short and long swells, sforzatos, sforzatissimos, and flutter tongues. All of these playing techniques are available as notes playing in unison and octaves, as well as in clusters. A crossfade patch allows you to blend seamlessly from unison to clusters and back.

The High Winds section consists of one piccolo, three flutes, two oboes and four clarinets. Apart from long notes in unison and octaves, these top musicians from the Synchron Stage Orchestra, who have developed into a cohesive ensemble over the years, show off their synergistic virtuosity by performing runs and arpeggios in a wide variety of scales and chords. Runs are available in major and minor keys, as well as in diatonic modes, chromatic and whole tone scales. As a variant, the "Perform Octave" patch lets you play a starting note of any length and trigger the run as soon as you press the target note an octave above or below.

Arpeggios are performed in various chords, including major, minor, sevenths, diminished and augmented. You can choose to start the loops on the highest or the lowest notes, and you can define the exit notes as note cut off, highest, or lowest. In addition, instead of choosing to start upwards or downwards, you can create beautiful woodwind textures by letting the ensemble play upwards and downwards simultaneously. Never before was it so simple to have an entire woodwind section play vivid and shimmering, rhythmically perfect arpeggios, just by holding a single key. Played in 16th triplets, they are available in three tempos — 80, 100 and 120 bpm — and you can easily sync them to your host tempo using the Synchron Player's time stretching feature, or even change the tempos in real-time using a controller.
