Synchron Strings Pro represents the next generation of sampled string ensembles, fusing artistic expression, a wealth of detailed articulations, natural note transitions and sonic excellence within a resource-friendly, easy-to-use product.

Synchron Strings Pro includes a few articulations from the previously released Collection Synchron Strings I, but most articulations, such as "agile" legatos, portamentos, espressivos, and many more, are new recordings. The ensembles of 14 first violins, 10 second violins, 8 violas, 8 cellos and 6 basses were recorded at the large "Stage A" of Synchron Stage Vienna with eight separate phase-coherent microphone configurations.

The magic of string ensembles is in the way expert musicians perform note beginnings and releases, and that's exactly what the Vienna team captured with long notes, legatos and portamentos of Synchron Strings Pro. The library provides all of the originally played attack and release variants, which are easy to use due to their consistent layout throughout the library. Dial in a marcato attack, a soft attack, or an even softer crescendo – you'll hear what the musicians performed without having to shape a tone using MIDI controllers. The same goes for espressivo notes where the originally played phrasings exhibit a natural quality that is inherently different from MIDI manipulated notes.

Vienna Symphonic Library's years of experience and research have led to another sampling innovation that tests musicians' mental stamina as well as their skill. By placing the ensembles in the simulated "pressure-cooker" environment of an actual scoring session while recording several thousand fast phrases, the editing team has been able to extract short elements that are bursting with authentic energy and drive. These "agile" legatos let the user play all imaginable runs and figures in all tempos, with the natural flow and authentic note transitions automatically provided by the Synchron Player.

Synchron Strings Pro not only offers individual presets of each of the five ensembles, but also tutti mappings and octave combinations that provide the entire articulation structure of the ensembles, all with polyphonic legato. Tutti presets feature the original voicing stacked over a six octave span, and condensed voicing over a four octave span. Octave combinations offer two ensembles each playing in octaves, such as first and second violins, violas and cellos, or cellos and basses, etc.

Standard Library and Full Library contain the same articulations. The Full Library adds more microphones for more sonic possibilities.
