  • Synchron Stage Vienna MIRx

    Hi,

    I listened to the "Star Wars – The Force Awakens" demo and I am really fascinated. 😃 Actually, it is the Finale ("The Jedi Steps"). Definitely one of your best demos I think (from an amateur's point of view). 

    I am just at the beginning of making music with orchestral samples, but I am so happy and proud of having chosen VSL as my library. I have a limited budget, so I can not compare it to other libraries (only by listening to demos and reading reviews), but for me, VSL has the most realistic and most playable samples. I switched from Composer Cloud, and I really did not like it, in terms of playability and sound quality (bad tunings etc.). The VSL performance legatos are so sophisticated.

    And, of course, I am really looking forward to the "new era" to come with the new Synchron Stage recordings. I think it is an awesome job you guys are doing!

    But now to the actual reason of this thread... 😊 Will this venue soon come to MIRx as well? I hope so.

    Greetings,

    Sascha

    Welcome Pixelpoet, and thanks for the friendly words.

    I just finished the work on a brand-new MIRx set not long ago (derived from the Pernegg Monastery MIR Pro Venue), and I have to admit that I need a break in that respect. 😊 Listening to the same two or three minutes of testing sequences over and over again for five or six weeks is quite demanding.

    ... but I think it is safe to say that there will be MIRx settings for Synchron Stage Vienna later this year. Just don't hold your breath for them! ;-D

    Kind regards,

    Hello Dietz,

    thanks for the quick reply. I know the new MIRx set, but it is rather "special". I purchased the Teldex one and I love it. So I was hoping for another scoring stage.

    *puh* I can now understand that you need a break then. Sounds really quite demanding... I did not know the expenditure of time needed. I thought 'Hey, when there is a MIR venue than it probably would not take much time to make a MIRx derivative!' 😶 

    Best,
    Sascha


  • Hello Dietz,

     

    Can those of us using MIR Pro expect a Synchron Stage (wide) preset???

    I ask because sadly, there is no wide preset for Teledex.

    Almost every photo I see of Synchron (in real world use) is wide. So wide presets would be nice for VSL's host stage.

     

    Thanks

    Hello Mike,

    yes, I'll plan to do the MIRx-settings for Synchron Stage A based on the same "wide" orchestra seating we typically use for actual recordings as well as the sampling sessions for the new Synchron Series.

    For the record: The "deep" Teldex-setup used for MIRx is inspired a lot by actual sessions of the studio's sound engineering staff (... just in case you thought that I came up with that as a crazy idea. ;-D ...). A graphical outline of this can be found in Teldex' RoomPack Manual on p. 17.

    Kind regards,

  • Yes Teledex has been my go-to stage for years. As you are a mad scientist Dietz, naturally I blamed you.for the wonderful "Deep" preset. I just missed having a wide alternative. Your presets make us lazy. As hard as we work a little lazy is appreciated from time to time.

    Excellent! Synchron wide it is.

    Nice talking to you Dietz, and greetings from Hollywood...
