SYNCHRON-ized Oboe d'Amore
This Single Woodwind Pack brings the oboe d’amore from Vienna’s acclaimed VI Special Woodwinds Collection to Stage A of Synchron Stage Vienna. It has been re-edited and optimized for the Vienna Synchron Player, increasing both the flexibility and ease-of-use of all articulations for a quick and creative work-flow.
Like the oboe and the English horn, the oboe d’amore (hautbois d’amour/oboe of love) is a double-reed woodwind instrument, covering the mezzo soprano register. The term “d’amore” dates from the Renaissance period and is based on the instrument’s warm, lyrical, and mellow sound character that is more comparable with the French horn than the oboe. The instrument is slightly larger (longer) than the oboe and has a distinctive, pear-shaped bell. Although it was commonly used in the Baroque era, the instrument was gradually displaced by the English horn and the oboe in later periods.
The library features the full set of articulations that’s on par with the instruments of SYNCHRON-ized Woodwinds, offering various short and long notes, legato variants (including fast legatos that let you play trills), dynamic articulations such as crescendos and diminuendos, fp, sfz, sffz, pfp, flutter tongue, repetitions and more.
The Synchron Player’s integrated convolution reverb adds the outstanding ambience of the 540 m² (5,813 sq.ft.) main hall of Synchron Stage Vienna to the dry samples in real-time. Expertly crafted mixer presets place the instrument on its perfect spot on stage, resulting in a production-ready sound “out of the box” that blends seamlessly with the instruments of SYNCHRON-ized Woodwinds as well as with every other product in the Synchron Series.
