NEW: Expansion Set for SYNCHRON-ized Woodwinds
This Expansion Set adds new articulations and phrases to all instruments of SYNCHRON-ized Woodwinds. It includes runs, arpeggios and third trills for most of the included instruments. You'll also find mordents (for piccolo, flute and oboe), slap tongues, and a large set of multiphonics of the second clarinet in Bb. Using the Synchron Player's time-stretch feature, it's easy to change the tempo of these phrases in real-time, or to sync them to the host tempo. The expansion set also includes "pure legatos" and "interval marcatos". What you hear are the naturally played note transitions, from a starting note to the original, unlooped target note, making for very natural and lively legato passages since every interval is followed by an individually played sustained note.

This collection brings twelve of our acclaimed and widely used solo woodwind instruments to Stage A of Synchron Stage Vienna. For creating this beautiful library, our large team of sound editors invested one year of intense work into re-creating a perfectly balanced and pristine-sounding sample database that lives up to the high standards of our SYNCHRON-ized libraries.
Enhanced, optimized and re-edited from the ground up
Starting with the raw, unprocessed original Silent Stage recordings for the VI Collections Woodwinds I & II, the team worked to increase both their flexibility and ease-of-use for a quick and creative work-flow. The volume levels of all articulations were completely overhauled and provide perfectly matching levels, not only within the articulations of each instrument, but also in interaction with the other included woodwind instruments and with all other instruments of the Synchron Series. This allows for smooth articulation changes without the need for volume corrections, or when crossfading between vibrato and non-vibrato articulations.
Other enhancements include optimized velocity crossfades for all instruments, more velocity layers for Legato Performances and Fast Legatos, vibrato and non-vibrato versions for Legato Performances and Fast Legatos, re-edited regular and fast legatos for trill performances with automatic speed detection, advanced release sample technology for adding perfectly matching note-off samples, extended looped articulations for sustains, legatos, fortepianos, sforzatos and trills, and much more.
Vienna Synchron Player
Being a product of our Synchron Series, SYNCHRON-ized Woodwinds comes with our free Vienna Synchron Player that incorporates the most powerful sample playback engine on the market, featuring unprecedented streaming performance while providing a new level of ease-of-use. Play short notes, long notes with various attacks, legatos, scalable vibrato intensities and note repetitions intuitively just by moving one or two preconfigured controls, with minimal need to switch articulations manually. With the Synchron Player’s innovative algorithms, the liveliness of these instruments unfolds magically and effortlessly.
For SYNCHRON-ized Woodwinds, our software developers incorporated a specifically designed convolution reverb derived from Vienna MIR Pro into the Synchron Player, featuring the outstanding and unique 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. By adding the ambience of Synchron Stage Vienna’s Stage A to the dry samples in real-time, SYNCHRON-ized Woodwinds perfectly blend with every other product in our Synchron Series, resulting in a production-ready sound “out of the box”.
