The sound sources of SYNCHRON-ized Elements comprise water (Waterphones), metal (singing bowls, crotales, steel rails, tam-tams), stone (lithophones), and glass (glass harmonica, verrophone, bottles). With a variety of included mixer presets, each instrument can be placed at nine different positions in the main hall of Synchron Stage Vienna for a perfect, out-of-the-box sound.

 

Glass Harmonica

The glass harmonica was widely popular during Mozart's time. Hemispherical glass bowls rotate around a horizontal axis driven by a pedal. By putting wet fingers on the bowls as they turn they excite the glass into lovely ethereal tones. The verrophone consists of chromatic glass tubes arranged vertically like the resonator tubes of mallet instruments. The glass tubes are rubbed with moistened fingers to create its unique sound. The musical glasses are filled with varying amounts of water and rubbed with moistened fingers, too, but their sound is much more delicate and shimmering compared to the verrophone. The glass instruments are rounded out by bottles that are blown with different techniques, including flutter tongue.

Lithophone

The sounding stone bars of the lithophone are made of basalt, granite, marble and other minerals. Lithophones were first introduced to the orchestra by Carl Orff (1895 - 1982) in his Greek drama "Antigone". The Grand Lithophone is a unique instrument that looks like a marimba and has a tonal range of almost five octaves. Due to the resonance tubes, the tonal possibilities range from extremely soft, full and dark tones to a hard and bright timbre.

Waterphone

The metal category includes steel rails struck with a steel hammer, thunder sheets in various sizes and playing techniques, crotales and a set of Japanese singing bowls. The series of tam-tams includes instruments with different diameters, ranging from 85 cm to the 200 cm XXL tam-tam. The latter was struck with metal rods, cardboard and jigsaw blades, hit and rubbed with chains, and manhandled with fly swatters, an egg cutter, and even a massaging rod.

XXL Tam-Tam

SYNCHRON-ized Elements is rounded off by a series of exotic percussion instruments such as ocean drums, spring drums, cuícas, waldteufel as well as bull roarer and lion's roar.

In addition to the "classic" presets, SYNCHRON-ized Elements offers a wide variety of "FX Presets" created by Vienna's experienced sound experts and engineers. Notably, the "Combined FX" category with a total of 24 newly-created instruments made by combining different Elements is a treasure-trove of fresh and organic sounds and effects for adventurous composers and sound-designers.
