Vienna Symphonic Library (VSL)

The Vienna Symphonic Library has announced the release of Yamaha CFX, the first concert grand that was captured at their refurbished recording facility Synchron Stage Vienna. The instrument comes with a new, dedicated software player that incorporates a new powerful streaming engine for rendering hundreds of voices simultaneously as well as the company's proprietary "Advanced Release Sample Technology" for utmost timbral authenticity and the most realistic playing feel. What's more, users can create their own instrument and ambience sound taking advantage of multiple microphone positions that can be customized using the Synchron Player's mixer.

Yamaha CFX, which is part of Vienna's new Synchron Series libraries, is available at a special introductory price through May 31, 2018.

World Renowned Acoustics
The products of Vienna's Synchron Series combine musicianship, engineering, recording technology and software innovation with the acoustics of Synchron Stage Vienna. Its 5,813 sq.ft. (540 m²) Stage A with its massive room-in-room construction is characterized by a particularly warm, pristine and natural ambience. The Yamaha CFX, equipped with the "Disklavier ENSPIRE PRO" performance reproducing system, delivered precision, resolution, and consistency during the entire recording process over several months. The instrument was captured with multiple high-end microphone arrays, resulting in up to 4,200 recorded samples per key.

Customized User Interface
Yamaha CFX comes with the all-new, dedicated Synchron Pianos Player that hosts a high-performance playback engine and incorporates the company's proprietary "Advanced Release Sampling Technology". It automatically matches up to 300 individual and finely grained release samples per key to the played notes and results in 100% timbral authenticity, liveliness and a realistic playing feel. Six character presets ("Concert", "Intimate", "Player", "Pop", "Ambience", and "Mighty") can be accessed instantly, adapting the instrument to any kind of musical genre. With various close and mid microphone positions, Decca tree and surround signals, users have a multitude of options for creating custom timbres by mixing various audio streams, filtering particular key ranges or even single keys, adjusting the instrument's string and body resonances or adding a pinch of algorithmic reverb to refine the overall sound.

Introductory Offer
Yamaha CFX is currently available at $222 (Standard Library, reg. $306) and $420 (Full Library, reg. $588) through May 31, 2018. The products of Vienna's Synchron Series (Synchron Percussion I, Synchron Strings I, and Yamaha CFX) are included in the new Synchron Package that is now available at a discounted bundle price.
