  • I'd like to comment on the new cantabile patches.

    Now we're talking! This sounds a lot like what many of us have been missing from the original sustain and legato patches of Synchron Strings. Lush and vibrant chords, flowing, singing melodies. Very happy to see that VSL has not abandoned further development of this library that has great potential, and still believes in the project.

    Is it a reasonable hope that cantabile will be available for the other sections as well in the future? That would be great.


  • Hi Jimmy,

    thanks a lot for our encouraging feedback.  And yes, there is "reasenable hope"  for the other string sections!

  • The new Cantabile articulations are great. And Vienna Dimension Strings III is also very exciting! Thanks.

    I agree with Jimmy (often we do by the way ๐Ÿ˜Š ๐Ÿ˜‰.

    We all faithful customers and supporters are looking forward to it, Herb.

    Thank you for the commitment!


  • Hi Paul,

    I think I have found a repeatable bug in 1.1.1152. This happens in Cubase 10 64 bit in Windows as well as the latest version of Vienna Ensemble Pro 64 bit.

    -Load the lastest version of the synchron player

    -Load dimension synchron Strings 1 1st Violins all players.

    -now try to unload the impulse response for player 1, Player 2 ,player 3 and player 4 (I like to use lexicon reverb)

    -when you get to player 3 or 4 of unloading the impulse response Synchron player starts to go into

    "Mearuing Streaming performance" for no apparent reason and then hangs.


  • Hi DaveJ, 

    Confirmed.  We will investigate and I'll contact you asap with a fix.

  • Hi

    I've installed the latest version of the Synchron Player and I've noticed that when I load the "04 Cellos-8 VelXF" preset from Synchron Strings I, the intensity of the marcato is always the same when I play with the Legato/Marcato patch. Whether I play softly or loudly, it doesn't change anything. It does the same thing with all the other strings sections. But it wasn't the case with the previous versions of the player. Am I doing something wrong ?

    Best,

    David


  • Hi David, 

    While the heard velocity of this preset is controlled by VelXFade, the Marcato intensity for this Legato Patch is depending on the PLAYED velocity on the keyboard. Works fine here...

  • Hi Paul

    Thanks for the reply. I know that the intensity of the Marcato depends on the played velocity. But when I play very softly on my keyboard, the sound of the Marcato is yet very loud. It wasn't like that before.

    Here is an audio example : VelXF is On and is at 64 and the Dim. Ctrl. A (Velocity) fader moves between 50 and 64.

    David


  • Hi David, 

    Ok, of course I believe you. It works fine here. Can you please send me the project file or a quick example project: support@vsl.co.at?

    Did you check with a newly loaded preset in a new song or does this "only" happen in an existing song?

    Best,
    Paul

    Hi DaveJ,

    The bug you reported is no fixed with the latest Synchron Player 1.1.1559.

    @daciddln: I sent you a file back. Your MIDI Notes were all at the same velocity (61-63)
