VSL Releases Synchron Smart Orchestra

US Vienna Symphonic Library software instrument places the entire Synchron Stage Orchestra on the keyboard      06/09/23

The Vienna Symphonic Library has announced the release of Synchron Smart Orchestra, which they describe as a powerful and versatile software instrument that places the entire orchestra on the keyboard, ready to play and to be used in many different ways. They tell us that all instruments and ensembles were performed by members of the acclaimed Synchron Stage Orchestra and recorded on the large Stage A of Synchron Stage Vienna. Here's the details direct from VSL...

The Synchron Smart Orchestra lets users play the entire orchestra or sections, including percussion and choir, all at once, with a large symphonic sound right out of the box. It's great for playing live, for quickly creating powerful orchestrations, for sketching ideas, and for getting new ideas in the first place. What's more, users can play the orchestra with the left hand and one of nine solo or lead voices with the right hand at the same time – perfect for those beautiful melodies soaring above the orchestra.

The main sections of the orchestra, taken from Vienna's large collections such as Synchron Duality Strings, Synchron Woodwinds, Brass, Percussion and even choir – can be played separately or all together at once, with access to the automatable mixer to adjust the levels of each ensemble. Solo and lead instruments include violin ensemble, cello ensemble, flute, oboe, clarinet, trumpet, horn, harp, and celesta.

The performances of these solo instruments are all-new recordings specifically created for this product (except for horn, harp, and celesta). A novel way of recording and mapping legatos makes for especially authentic note connections, as previously evidenced in the lyrical legato of the solo horn included in the Synchron Brass Collection, which is also part of the Synchron Smart Orchestra.

To refine arrangements, several instances of the plug-in can be placed on separate tracks of the DAW, each loaded with either the full orchestrra, an orchestra section or a lead instrument with their full range, which makes the Synchron Smart Orchestra an extremely simple to use and a resource-saving orchestral library that delivers impressive results in an instant.

While the previously released Vienna Smart Orchestra includes VI Series instruments recorded at the Silent Stage and placed on the virtual Stage A using the Synchron Player's internal convolution reverb, the performances of the Synchron Smart Orchestra were recorded with the ambience of the large hall of Synchron Stage Vienna, where the finest musicians lend their talent and artistry to film and TV score recordings on a daily basis.

Pricing and Availability:
The new library is currently available at an introductory price of €175 (regular price: €245). Crossgrade paths from various large Synchron Series libraries as well as from the previously released Vienna Smart Orchestra are available.
