So what is the advantage to upgrade to SYNCHRON-ized Dimension Brass I&II ?
(Apart from the already mentioned compatibility with the Libraries of the original Synchron-Series which are recorded in as they are placed in the Synchronstage) imho the Synchronplayer is just a huge step forward in the development of Players for the very large variety of Orchestral sample-Libraries.
I fear most VSL-Customers didn't already realised why the Concept of switch and x-Fade-able Articulation-Dimension could be such a timesaver the larger the variety of different patches are available, since as the Preset already indicate the Idea is that you must no longer search long lists or foldertrees for a certain patch to load it and organize than its midi-selection via a certain cell in your VI-Matrix, but just to decide with your mididata what certain quality the patch should have and keep this decision effective even if you change other aspects of your decision.
F.I. you want a certain type of vibrato but for some notes you need a legato patch for another a cresc. or a sustain as long the mididata which decieded the legatotype you have chosenm keeps the same the Synchronplayerr will select also sustain or swell patches withe the same kind of legato,
As soon we will get original muted patches or perhaps if they will ever synchronize Dimension violins the ability to restrict the player on a certain String of the violin this will allow to reduce the amount of programming very complex musical contextes with a very complex variety of available patches always focussed on a few musical reasonable decisions no longer distracted from the tedious work you would have done if you ever would have tried to program anything similar in VI.
The more a detaild variety of Sample content will be available this concept will unfold its tremendous power in comparison to every other existing Sampleplayer for ORchestral libraries.
How ever for the moment the step from VI to Synchron-Player seem to be "a small step for a human but.... 😉"
