    Hello Paul,

    good news 😊

    Just to clarify ... is the Cantabile-Update completed or will there be a last update for the Basses?

    BR, Lars


  • Hi Lars, 

    The Cantabile Update is complete!

    Best,

    Thank you for this free update, VSL!

     I like the new patches and now with the editing of the existing ones, there should be enough options and variation for everyone to choose from and get the desired results.

     @basses: IMO these were never the problem, so the update pretty much does it as far as the legato issues go. I also don't think that a "cantabile" playing style for basses is particularly high on anyone's list of priorities 😃

     If I was to pick one more thing as a future improvement, I would suggest re-doing be the sforzato/fortepiano patches. Especially the sforzato in its current state really doesn't sound very musical. I believe the normal "short" articulation was used to crossfade into a long note to create these, and the result sounds quite artificial and jarring. The attack is too short and percussive, so when the sustained portion of the patch comes in, it's very obvious and disconnected and you can tell that you're hearing two sounds which do not belong together at all. A "true sforzato/true fortepiano" note would be much better, or at least a more realistic sounding attack recording crossfading into a long note.


  • Paul, Will there be an update to the VI version of the Synchron strings? Thank you, Eloy

  • Hi, 

    There will be no Vienna Instruments Cantabile Update for Synchron Strings I.
    That really was a time-limited solution to bridge the time until the Synchron Player is ready, and the Synchron Player makes all the difference.

    Perfect! Time to install now!

  • Have VSL a support ? Where I can get support ? 

    Installing the VSL Sync Library update "Cantabile Games," does not allow installation. The following error message is displayed; "Application 'Library Installer' caused the following error:

     

    The program 'Synsopos.app' could not be started. The file is probably corrupt or incompatible, or the file permissions are incorrect.

     

    Please download and install the latest version of the 'eLicenser Control' from this web page:

     

    <Http://www.eLicenser.net>

     

     

     

    options:

    - Click <Ok> to finish. "

     

    How can this be corrected .....?

    Hello. Same installation issue as mailrob. Everything up to date. Everything else works...except for frequent crashing and freezes with VEP7. : )

    Roland

    Resolved: Installed files directly using Synchron Library Installer as suggested by garylionelli. Thank you Gary!


  • Hi Roland, 

    That's strange. Can you please send some screenshots to support@vsl.co.at, so we can get to the bottom of this?

    Thanks, 
    Paul

  • Same probem. Everything up to date, but says could not initialize eLicenser. 

     

    Update: got it to install by booting the Libraryy Installer app and manually installing it rather than the auto-install that wasn't working in the Download Manager.


  • Very nice update , nice legatos !

    when do you think we'll get portamento legatos ?? that seems to be lacking .

    Also better matrix design to give us things like slurred legato Xfade Vib and portamentos ( when they arrive ) triggered at low velocity and normal leg xfade at higher velocity etc.

    the interface is rather cumbersome for setting up those kinds of intuitive  articulation switching ( i find ) 


  • Hi Paul, 

    Good question about those portamentos, they are not planned in the near future. 

    My suggestion is to mix other libraries in for that purpose, like the Dimension Strings (portamentos are already available in SYNCHRON-ized Special Edition Volume 5, for eample). Adding just one desk to each section and featuring them prominently in the mix will get you great results. 

    Sllurred Legato Xfade vibrato is probably something that can be built - I will look into that. 

    Best, 
    Paul

  • Paul,

    Yes you are right. Mixing the Synchron strings with older libraries using the portamentos sounds great.

    This works best when you use the VI Version (Lots of VI library sample choices) of Synchron I strings (close mic). You can make wonderful sounding matrixes using VI Pro (and MIR giving multiple rooms). While the Syncronized string library versions have less choices of samples.....and you only have 1 room choice. 

    Thank you,

    Eloy
