Think of SYNCRHON-ized Woodwinds as a streamlined product that reflects the instrumentation of late romanticism (Wagner et al.). Yes, it doesn’t offer some instruments and articulations that are available with VI Woodwinds, and that’s not an omission, that's the concept of this product. That’s one reason why it’s so easy to work with. Our specialized team is working on one instrument for about a month… do the math how long it takes to create such a product, and then think of the costs. We need to find a balance between what we can achieve at a reasonable price and what most of our users want. If you want more instruments and articulations and the flexibility of VI Woodwinds, you’re a specialist (highly valued by us!) whom we’re happy to continue to serve with our Vienna Instruments Pro player. On the other hand, a lot of customers are paying for a product that includes instruments and articulations they never use.
Having said that, I’m certainly not going to rule out that there will never be any other woodwinds and articulations in the SYNCHRON-ized series. Right now, SYNCHRON-ized Woodwinds is a great solution in terms of instruments, articulations, what people are using, and how easy it is to work with this player and its pre-configured sound with lots of presets.
And of course we’re further developing the Vienna Synchron Player to add more features over time.
