Thanks for the great news!
I have a favor to ask: like what VSL has for Synchron Percussion demos, would it be possible to have demos to compare "Room Mix" vs. "Surround Downmix”?
As I will be using the library mainly for stereo applications, I would like to know if the downmix alone would make enough a difference in terms spatial perception.
Thanks in advance!
Just a question which came up regarding the name of the Playersoftware "synchron pianos".
Are there plans to
Or does piano"s", in reality just mean "piano" 😛
Great to see you excited!
@Philip Johnston: There are quite a few ways to adjust the way Synchron Pianos react to your MIDI Input (very similar to the Vienna Imperial): Dynamic Range and MIDI Sensitivity will be the most important tools here, but you can also fine-tune each key with EQ, dynamic range values and volume.
@Pbest: 1) Yes, there will be a walkthrough video, as soon as possible. Fixing a few bugs right now, which will boost performance.
2) All demos were played by Guy Bacos - as those last-minute changes provided quite some improvements (especially in release sample and pedal handling), new versions of these demos will be available soon.
@fahl5: We have many plans 😊
1) We learned our lesson and will not announce products before they are ready.
2) That would indeed be an obvious option!
3) Also a good idea!
More demos are on the way!
I downloaded the library, installed, activated, directory managed.... something's missing. Where is the Synchron Pianos Player? Can't find it anywhere. A search for it only reveals the library installer and the uninstaller for Synchron Pianos but no player.... ???
I'm having the same trouble. It does not show up in the VSL instrument plug-in folder in Logic Pro X.
Did I goof up by allowing Vienna Download Manager install the library? It seemed perfectly happy to do it. But, now I see a Synchron Library Installer in the Vienna Synchron Pianos folder. Do I need to use that?
Unfortunately, I already discarded all my package files and need to download them again.
If the Synchron Library Installer must be used, a warning should pop up in the Vienna Download Manager so that people don't use that to install the library.
the new Download Manager installs the sample content of Synchron Pianos just fine. The installed (= extracted) files are called *.vsynvolumes.
The software Synchron Pianos, available in the Software Section at MyVSL, do not have a standalone version but are installed as plug-ins (AU. VST, AAX) and should show up within your DAW right after installation.
The included Library Installer is only installed in case you want to install your sample content manually.
Any specific questions: firstname.lastname@example.org!
What is the routing capabilities of the library? I see the mixer routing to "stereo" but can you route to more channels (5.0 bus, etc) out so stereo decca can go out L/R and center decca can go out a C channel, etc? Especially important for the surround mics, etc. Can't seem to see a demo/explanation of this. And can't find a manual for the CFX engine yet.
So, will there be a standalone player for this piano? I was under the impression there was one. I actually have no use for plug-in only versions. Will there be no way to host Synchron Pianos in VE Pro?
It runs in VE pro like any plugin or VIpro instrument.
Always depends on the piano player. Guy Bacos can definitely pull that off.
Maybe we will get a video from him. And I will also start with a simple walkthrough video soon.
Thank you Paul! As always i know that good instruments don't make the Player better 😉
Regarding Routing (@ribeye): As soon as you insert Synchron Pianos as a Surround plug-in, the surround presets will be displayed, with flexible routing!
If anyone likes to get the Synchron Piano Manual, please contact email@example.com, we'll send it to you!
Thanks, Paul. Sending a request for the manual now.
