On Soudley Ponds-Synchron stage Mirx reverb.

I’ve done several posts showing the playback straight from Sibelius using different sample libraries, but for todays post I thought I’d check out something new from VSL…that works wonderfully with something older!

The original ‘Vienna Instruments’ version of the special editions are really, really lovely..and I have to admit that I prefer them to the newer ‘Synchron-ized’ versions, but recently VSL released a new reverb extension for the brilliant Mirx reverb plugin that works with Vienna Instruments, there ‘Synchron’ stage extension.

So today, this playback uses the original special editions samples, hosted in VE Pro 7 using this brand new reverb!…and I think it’s spectacular!…and new new favourite!

As usual, this is the playback straight from the score of Sibelius Ultimate (2021.2) and no editing has been done in a DAW like logic for example.

You’ll find all the blogs about this score, and others I’ve done here

If you’d like to use VSL and Sibelius, but need help setting everything up, don’t hesitate to contact me directly, or perhaps book a one-to one, where we’ll go over everything together.

It’s a great way of me showing you exactly what you need to do to get started with these two pieces of amazing software!

Thanks so much for listening to “On Soudley Ponds” and for watching.

I’d love to know what you think of this, or anything else Sibelius related, so feel free to comment below!

    Hi Paul
    Great site and lots of essential information, tips and tricks on using Sibelius. As you’ve got your finger on the pulse of everything Sibelius I just wondered if you had heard anything about developing a Sound Set to use Spitfire’s BBCSO virtual instrument with Sibelius. I bought the Sound Set for EWQL Symphonic Orchestra which is great and I was in touch with them about their development of a BBCSO Sound Set, but they seem to have gone AWAL for the last couple of months and I can’t get any reply from them. Have you heard anything on the Sibelius grapevine?
    Cheers, Barry

      Hi Barry

      Thanks so much for your very kind words about the site mate, I’m really glad you enjoy it.

      I’ve been in touch with Johnathan several times about various libraries id love to use, the last time I contacted him was about 2 years ago, but I’ve not heard anything to say that he’s no longer working on sound sets. I’ll try to get hold of him myself, as I’d love a BBCSO Sound Set too..as I use the Discover version a lot with Sibelius a sound set would be fantastic.

      If I hear anything, and if its ok with you, I’ll email you directly with any news.
