Vienna MIR RoomPack 6 – Synchron Stage Vienna
As with every MIR venue, RoomPack 6 comes with thousands of impulse responses and a detailed graphical representation of the venue, ready-to-use with Vienna's Multi Impulse Response-based mixing and reverberation applications Vienna MIR Pro and MIR Pro 24.
The all-new RoomPack 6 is dedicated to Vienna's resurrected Synchron Stage Vienna, which is described as "a one-of-a-kind recording facility that provides outstanding acoustics, state-of-the-art recording technologies and Vienna Symphonic Library's software innovations to its international clientele".
The original scoring stage was built in the 1940s, adjacent to Rosenhügel-Filmstudios as part of "Film City Vienna". During the 1960s, eminent classical artists such as Karl Böhm, Herbert von Karajan, Yehudi Menuhin, Sviatoslav Richter and Mstislav Rostropovich used the venue for their now-legendary recordings. In the summer of 2013 the Vienna Symphonic Library acquired and renovated the building. In its first year of operation Synchron Stage Vienna hosted film music recordings for productions such as Inferno, The Crown, Lego Batman, Ghost in a Shell, in addition to several video games, commercials, classical recordings and many other projects.
The facility's 540 m2 (5,813 sq.ft.) main Stage A is large enough to accommodate a 130 piece orchestra and features a reverb time of 1.6 to 1.8 seconds. The colossal room-in-room construction with its well-designed sound insulation stands out with an exceptionally low noise-floor of 16 dBA, even with the air conditioner running.
Vienna MIR RoomPack 6 represents this hall from two different angles. A total of 6,000 Impulse Responses (IRs) were gathered to virtually recreate the acoustics of this venue.
Vienna MIR RoomPack 6 is currently available at a special introductory price of $145 (normally $195). Registered users and new buyers of Synchron Percussion I qualify for a free download of RoomPack 6 through June 30, 2017. Additionally, users and new buyers of Synchron Percussion I may purchase Vienna MIR Pro 24 for $207 (normally $295), through June 30, a saving of 30%.
Vienna MIR Pro 24 includes the full set of features and options of its bigger brother Vienna MIR Pro, with a maximum of 24 instruments, ensembles or audio signals that can be placed on its virtual stages.
