This library is based on the VI Percussion Collection and includes the updated sample database of instruments that were recorded in the tight and controlled ambience of Vienna’s second studio, the Silent Stage. All drums and percussion instruments can therefore be placed in any acoustic environment and on any position in a room, from dry closets to halls and venues such as the rooms provided by Vienna MIR Pro 3D.
Each instrument comes with customized impulse responses that make placing them in their ideal spot on the virtual Synchron Stage Vienna a breeze. Mixer Presets such as Close, Classic, Distant, with or without the Synchron Player’s included MIR convolution technology, guarantee a perfect sound “out of the box” and match the acoustic placement of the Synchron Series instruments that were recorded on the large Stage A of Vienna’s own Hollywood-approved scoring stage.
The instruments of SYNCHRON-ized Percussion are grouped in six separately available Percussion Packs that correspond to the instruments of the Synchron Percussion Packs, with equal mappings to make it easy to exchange and try out instruments from both Series. Compared to Synchron Percussion, the instruments of the SYNCHRON-ized Percussion Collection were not only recorded in a separate acoustic environment, they’re also different makes of the same instruments with their own individual sound characteristics and were played by different musicians, therefore adding more flexibility and variety to your arsenal of percussion instruments.
The entire sample database was optimized for the Vienna Synchron Player and its advanced algorithms and features. The volume levels of all articulations such as single hits, dynamic rolls and many more have been precisely adjusted and matched, balancing the dynamic ranges of all instruments for seamless, natural performances when switching through various articulations. Dynamic rolls of timpani, bass drums and taikos can be played shorter than their original length due to the release sample algorithms of the Synchron Player.
All instruments offer a broad spectrum of meticulously sampled articulations, from single hits with various beaters to static rolls, crescendo and diminuendo rolls, upbeats and repetitions, depending on the styles and variations each instrument has to offer. The Synchron Player’s “Key Info” feature makes it easy to find the articulation you’re looking for and provides a great overview of the available mappings.
