  • UPDATE 2019: VIENNA SMART ORCHESTRA

    last edited
    last edited

    Dear friends!

    I’d like to introduce you to a new friend:  

    VIENNA SMART ORCHESTRA

    The VSO is here for you in the good times, when inspiration flows like a never-ending river and you can’t keep up with all your ideas. 

    And it will also be there when you’re in a time-crunch and you need something GREAT really quick!

    Easy to mix: 
    Actually, this one is load and play, but of course we added quite some flexibility!
    All the stems and solo instruments are available on separate channels in the Synchron Player! 

    Add FX: 
    We are introducing an internal FX Rack with the new Synchron Player. 
    So don’t forget to check out our FX Presets with pretty impressive hybrid sounds based on our sample content!

    Check out our demos and videos for some first impressions! 
    Chances are that this will be your new best friend!!

    Oh, and did I mention the price? 😉 

    With the friendliest wishes from your  Vienna Team!

  • Paul, great news. I love instant orchestras!

    But is this a "Special Edition Vol.1 Synchron-ized" library?

    Paolo


  • Nice upgrade for "special-edition"-Users.

    Does that has anything interesting for those working with the whole Orchestra?

    Are all Smart-Instruments based on original (not yet released Wind) Synchron-Patches ?

    (For the Admins: This Posting does not contain anything critical or in anyway tendentious. It posyes just 2 reasonable questions !!!) 


  • The upgrade is also for Cube-Package-users, so feel free ... Interesting that you think about buying this 9 GB Orchestra. (This is a product for starters. But if you fell in love with it ... why not ... ;)

    If VSL provides a Sibelius Soundset and an Expression Map, this might also be useful for Sibelius and Dorico users. The setup time is what keeps me from using 3rd party sample libraries in notation programs.

    • Superpackage-Users are by defenition used to buy simply all. They just never bought SE, since they already had everything what was part of SE. The question is therefor not that strange: Is there anything, that will ad any functionality only available with this product, what might make this a necessary part of any Super or Synchron-Series-Super-Package concrete this asks also if the FX-Rack for instance will be automaically part of the Synchronplayerupdate or restricted on this product?
    • This is advertised as a full Orchestra working with Synchron-Player: As far as I know there are no Winds for the Synchronplayer available yet other than as Part of the Smart Orchestra, while this of course could only be as much as it could be if all together makes 9GB.

    I think my Questions are still reasonable even if they obviously seem to be difficult to understand

    • any exclusive new VSL Functionality?
    • Any new Synchron-Instruments not available in other Form yet?

  • Thank you! Synchron Player 1.0.1172 • Added: Effects rack per mixer channel • Added: Mixer Aux Sends and Returns • Added: Key Range Adjustment and Extension (one octave up/down)

    Thank you!

    Synchron Player 1.0.1172
    • Added: Effects rack per mixer channel
    • Added: Mixer Aux Sends and Returns
    • Added: Key Range Adjustment and Extension (one octave up/down)

    Thank you to. The 1.0.1172 Synchron-Player-Update is released today. Just installed it That is really a good step ahaed for the Synchron Mixer. Stephen Linbaugh will love the "Distortion > Saturator"

    I thought this great update would have been worth to mention for the Synchron-Series Users to.

    So the only question left:

    What's about the Synchron Winds .

    Is being Part of the Smart-Orchestra (if they are) a hint for a release of the Synchron Winds in the near future?

    You see those question are even still interesting for more than starters. and their answers able to suport the VSL-Products (more than deleting those reasonable questions without realy reading them ) 


  • It looks like everything is from the VI Series.

    It uses at least the Synchron-Player. Except the Winds most could at least be new Synchron-Material original made for thge Synchron-Player.

    I expect, that Synchron Woodwinds will sooner or later be part of the Synchron Series to complete an Orchestra If they have maybe prepared for the Winds the basic articulation in a Room-Mix it might at least be possible that they used consistent material for all.

    However 9GB seem to be quite handsome for use on the most Systems and the price of course competitive.

    basically i own the SE Full Complete Bundle but just bought it in Volumes separately to the Complete Bundle . do i need to pay really the full price or i´m entitled to the upgrade price ? my account says i needs to pay the full Price and i wonder why ?


  • Hi JDBGDS, 

    Just checking with our IT Team, should be fixed soon.

    EDIT: Just found out that, in your case, the price of your purchase will be adjusted manually in our back office. The reason for this is that you have purchased the sections of SE VOL 1 separately (Strings, WWW, Brass, Percussion))

    SOLUTION: Please order your Vienna Smart Orchestra in our webshop and add the following sentence in the COMMENT: "I am a SE Vol 1 user, all sections registered. Please apply discounted price of 95 EUR."

    Best, 
    Paul

  • Hello

    This is great for playing live !

    I have a few questions :

    1) Do you need to have your other library installed  ?

    2) Can I install it on my Macpro in the studio and on my Macbook with one license ?

    3) Do I require another dongle for my Macbook ?

    4) I did not find the list of FX

        Can you add :

        - A chord memoriser and player

        - Arpegiator

        

     

    5) Can you add a setup by song like in Mainstage ?

    6) Are you going to add the compatibility with Native Instrument NKS ? This will BE GREAT and VERY helpfull ;)

    Best

    Hi Cyril, 

    I'll get to your questions right away. 

    1) Do you need to have your other library installed  ?
    => No. 

    2) Can I install it on my Macpro in the studio and on my Macbook with one license ?
    => Yes, just take the key with you, as with our other products. 

    3) Do I require another dongle for my Macbook ?
    => You know how it works with our licenses. Download it once and take advantage of the portability. 

    4) I did not find the list of FX
    => Look in the Synchron Player Manual, please.

        Can you add :
        - A chord memoriser and player
        - Arpegiator

    => There's nothing our developers cannot do, but this will not be done in the near future.     

    5) Can you add a setup by song like in Mainstage ?
    => I'll have to look into that. 

    6) Are you going to add the compatibility with Native Instrument NKS ? This will BE GREAT and VERY helpfull 😉
    => We will look into it.

    There's always room to grow 😊

    Best,
    Paul

  • Count me in as a fan of the FX presets. Good job Paul and the team. I would love to see more FX presets/soundsources added in the future with updates. Is that possible or the updates consist only on GUI features and improvements ? Thanks Paul. Best Rabih

    Hi tdwctdwc, 

    Thanks for the feedback, I'll pass it on to the team!

    We're definitely planning more FX Presets, just waiting for some more feedback from our experienced and new users, and we're also talking to some sound-designers out there. There are so many options available now, and the hardest part is to pick the best ones for you!

    Exciting times ahead 😊

    Best,
    Paul

  • Hi Cyril,

    What exactly do you mean by "setup by song like in Mainstage"?

    Would you please elaborate, so we can better look into this?

    Best, Marnix


  • You can add an arpeggiator/chord memorizer in your DAW, Logic can do this, I suppose Cubase as well, so there is no need to have this feature within the Synchron Player, just my thoughts...

    Hello Marnix

    In Mainstage you define a Patch list / song list

    Look at this video



    For each item of the Patch/song list you define the setup of your keyboard

    So when you are live you just select the song/patch, you do not have to fiddle the buttons 

    On the attached file, they use the Patch/song as an instrument selector

    I hope you are going to be compatible with NI NKS 😉 it will be so helpfull for playing live

    With my band we are not using VSL because it is too complex to use it live, With VMO and NKS it will much more simple

    Thanks

  • Hi,

    I downloaded Vienna Smart Orchestra and the latest Player Software. Both installed but I am not able to run the Vienna Smart Orchestra nor to start the player. Vienna Smart Orchestra is registered in the eLicense Key. For the player, I cannot find it in the eLicense-USB-Key. Am I missing a thing here or do I need some other software or libraries to run VSO? Thanks for helping.
