Stunning Realism Through Imperfection
The string players of these ensembles were recorded in homogeneous groups, capturing all of the human interactions and slight imperfections of a live performance. Individual microphones for each player allow you to access each voice of the ensemble separately.
Even the best musicians never play in perfect unison; slight imperfections in pitch and timing, as well as different timbres and vibrato intensities create a lively, beautiful ensemble sound. When playing as a group, musicians continually adapt to each other, and their interactions within the ensemble reveal the “magic” of a live performance. With the Vienna Synchron Player and its Auto Humanization feature, these nuances and variations are created automatically while simply playing the keyboard.
You may easily select the number of musicians of the ensemble in one instance of the Synchron Player, from the principal, to single desks, to the full ensemble size. What’s more, you can automate the integrated mixer and therefore control the volume of each player separately. Each ensemble instrument has its own Synchron Stage Impulse Response for placement and reverberation, so it’s a breeze to use different Dimension Strings ensemble sizes in one instance of the player.
The Vienna Synchron Player incorporates a specifically designed convolution reverb derived from Vienna MIR Pro, featuring the outstanding ambience of the 540 m² (5,813 sq.ft.) main hall of Synchron Stage Vienna. The perfectly engineered reverberation and placement presets combine customized impulse responses with expertly crafted reverb settings for each instrument or ensemble. By adding the ambience of Synchron Stage Vienna’s Stage A to the relatively dry samples in real-time, the ensembles of SYNCHRON-ized Special Edition Vol. 5 blend perfectly with any other product of the Synchron Series. Specifically, the included mixer presets are seamlessly compatible with the String Presets of the SYNCHRON-ized Special Edition Volumes 1, 2 and 3.
You may expand the string ensembles of SYNCHRON-ized Special Edition Vol. 5 with additional articulations by upgrading to the large Collections SYNCHRON-ized Dimension Strings I and SYNCHRON-ized Dimension Strings II (muted) at favorable upgrade prices. In addition to many more articulations, the larger Collections offer the possibility to select playing on certain strings, such as “force strings” (e.g., sul G), “avoid open strings”, and “use open strings”.
