    Congrats to the team and to our own Andi Olszewski for his role in this - a man of many talents! I loved seeing him featured in this VSL yt video on interesting aspects of the making of the library https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fm6MmHPXM8Y - well worth a watch.

    I’m particularly pleased to see the deep marimba sampling…


  • Paul,

    Quick question:

    After this month's introductory sale, will the Synchron Percussion Bundle continue to be available, or is it just for October?


  • Hi, 

    The Synchron Percussion Bundle is here to stay!

    Best,

    Excellent!  That helps inform my purchasing decisions.  Thank you!


  • Paul,

    Another question: are *all* the BBO percussion ensembles included in Synchron Percussion III, or just some?


  • Hi, 

    Synchron Percussion III contains the complete content of BBO: Dorado, Eridanus and Fornax. 

    Best,
    Paul

    Thanks again!


  • Fantastic 3rd library in the Synchron Percussion collection! Major props to Maestro Andi and the whole team - bravo e brava! From everything I've listened to thus far, I'm in no doubt that Synchron Percussion is indeed the world's premier collection of orchestral percussion samples.

    It appears VSL have taken smart advantage of the Covid-induced worldwide downturn in the movie business, by allocating very generous Synchron Stage A time to the production of this library (harking back to the golden age of rock superbands). 

    Looks like my bank account will get pretty skinny this year Lolol.


  • Paul,

    In the Standard version of SYN Percussion III, is there any way to access the high, high surround, and surround mics for the BBO content that's included?

    The answer is no.... But you can get the BBO D-F BEFORE you get Synchron Percussion III. They are now also available at special pricing.

    Oops, I did it out of order!  Oh well.

    I just have to say, SYN Percussion I-III is fantastic.  This is one of the most consistent, deeply sampled, functional libraries I've ever worked with.  What I particularly appreciate about it is that there are no frills: just really, really intricate and deep-sampled instruments as well as clean recordings in flexible mic positions that fit like a glove in a variety of applications.  Sounds great, works great, easy to use...This is a true workhorse, and I hope everyone at VSL is happy with how it turned out (I sure am!).



  • Hi All,

    how detailed did you record the Windchimes?
    Are there only Glissandi up and down or also Singletones that you can play on the Keys?

    Thanks.

  • Thank you Andi.

  • I've received a new 4TB SSD where to move all my VSL libraries. Ugh – it's not enough! I'll have to reserve one of the old 2TB drives to them as well.

    Am I wrong, or the full Synchron Percussion + Power Drums collection takes 1.1 TB, or around that? This is a new idea of HUGE!

    Paolo


  • Hi, 

    1.1 TB sounds right. Yes, we like deep sampling!

    Best,
    Paul

  • So what is new versus already extant in the Cymbals part of this?

    I see there is a Crashes ensemble, a big and small metals, which resemble the things in BBO I have.
    Are these the same? All that was new in the Orchestral part of this was the Latin percussion and some birdcalls and whistles. I see there is a Sabian piatti, a sizzle cymbal and two splashes I don't have and probably the finger cymbals are new.


  • Hello civilization 3!

    Most instruments in Synchron Percussion III are completely new. All solo instruments are new. The ensemble instruments come from the BBO collections Dorado, Eridanus and Fornax. On the instrument page in the instrument list these ensembles contain the word "Ensemble". So all instruments without this word are new.

    Here they are.
    5 Timpani (Adams, C2-C4, hit with a hard beater)
    Field Drum (Aural)
    Marching Snare (Yamaha)
    Piccolo Snare (Kolberg)
    Snare Drum (Aural Nut)
    Boobams
    Piatti (Sabian 20")
    Sizzle Cymbal (Zildjian 18")
    Splash Cymbals (Zildjian 8", 12")
    Ancient Cymbals
    Marimba
    Temple Blocks
    Cencerros
    Hand Bells
    Rin Bells
    Jingle Bells
    Flexatones
    Car Horns
    Warning and siren horns
    Whistles
    Bird calls
    Slide Flutes
    Jingle Ring
    Congas
    Bongos
    Timbales
    Cow bells
    Agogo bells
    Guiros
    Sandpaper blocks
    Claves
    Cabasas
    Wind chimes

    Best regards,
    Andi

  • thanks. I shoulda seen that right at the top, I guess I went straight to "content".

    I'm torn between this sizzle cymbal and the 70cm Tam from II.
