Vienna Symphonic Library releases new solo woodwind instruments and ensembles

Vienna Symphonic Library (VSL)

The Vienna Symphonic Library has released eleven solo woodwind instruments and ensembles that broaden the range of instruments of Vienna's previously released SYNCHRON-ized Woodwinds Collection. The new instruments are based on Vienna's VI Woodwind Collections and Single Instruments and were completely re-edited and optimized for the Vienna Synchron Player.

While SYNCHRON-ized Woodwinds includes all the instruments of a triple woodwind line-up that is typically used for large orchestrations, these releases expand the woodwind section in range, color and style:

  • SYNCHRON-ized Alto Flute.
  • SYNCHRON-ized Bass Flute.
  • SYNCHRON-ized Oboe d'Amore.
  • SYNCHRON-ized Heckelphone.
  • SYNCHRON-ized Clarinet (Eb).
  • SYNCHRON-ized Basset Horn.
  • SYNCHRON-ized Contrabass Clarinet.
  • SYNCHRON-ized Flute Ensemble.
  • SYNCHRON-ized Oboe Ensemble.
  • SYNCHRON-ized Clarinet Ensemble.
  • SYNCHRON-ized Bassoon Ensemble.

All solo and ensemble instruments feature the full set of articulations that's on par with the instruments of the SYNCHRON-ized Woodwinds Collection, offering various short and long notes, legato variants (including fast legatos for playing trills), dynamic articulations such as crescendos and diminuendos, fp, sfz, sffz, pfp, flutter tongue, trills, repetitions and more.

The four ensembles lend themselves well to large orchestrations, holding their own against large string and brass sections. Their well-balanced ensemble sound can be emphasized in the mix and still blends well with the orchestra, without risking that one of the instruments stands out as a solo instrument.

Starting with the raw, unprocessed original Silent Stage recordings for the VI Single Instruments and Woodwind Collections, Vienna's team of sound editors re-created a perfectly balanced and pristine-sounding sample database, increasing both the flexibility and ease-of-use of all articulations for a quick and creative work-flow.

The Synchron Player's integrated convolution reverb, derived from Vienna MIR Pro, adds the 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 each 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.

The Austrian company has also released the second Expansion Set for SYNCHRON-ized Woodwinds that's free to all existing and new users, offering all-new dynamic articulations such as sforzatissimo, crescendos, diminuendos, pfp and more.

The company rounds out their September offers with a Synchron Strings Special, offering a 30% discount on Synchron Strings Pro, Synchron Strings I and Synchron FX Strings I. What's more, in addition to a 27% discount on Synchron Elite Strings existing and new users will receive a free "slurred legato" Expansion set as a bonus gift.

Price: Available separately, starting at $71 during the introductory offer through October 4, 2021, or together in the SYNCHRON-ized Single Woodwinds Package.

Crossgrade prices from the Standard Libraries and the Full Libraries of the corresponding VI Single Instruments, Collections and SYNCHRON-ized Special Editions are available.
