About This Course

Would you like to learn how to set up the Synchron-ized Special Editions with Vienna Ensemble 6?

The Synchron sample player is much newer than the original VI or VI Pro player.

The interface is completely new and uses a ‘Dimension Tree’ structure for articulation switching, not the matrix system that the original Vienna Instruments (and the Pro version) uses.

The sample player has inbuilt reverb based on the MIR Pro versions of the Synchron Stage Vienna, and sounds out the box, absolutely superb!

A plus point of this new sample player is that it can seem a bit less intimidating than the Vienna Instruments version of the sample player. The features that the original VI player has (especially the Pro version) are frankly world-class, but you may find it a bit daunting to use the first time you set everything up.

The Synchron Player is laid out in perhaps a clearer way, and humanization control is still available, but it’s a bit more user friendly!

It also includes some terrific mixer presets and a slightly larger list of available instruments, and the string sections now come with violin 2 samples for each ensemble size.

In this course, I’ll start at the very beginning, by opening a blank Sibelius document. I’ll show you how to set up a template in Sibelius Ultimate using separate instances of Vienna Ensemble for different sections of the orchestra

This way of working has the potential to become a HUGE template should you so wish!

Once it’s set up, it can be very quick to use, and loads automatically too!

So, you’ve bought the Synchron-ized Special Editions!

They are stunningly good, and very soon you’ll be able to use them with Sibelius too. I’ve done quite a few blogs now showcasing the playback of VSL’s software with Sibelius. If you haven’t seen them yet, you can check them out here.
