This Bundle includes all SYNCHRON-ized Special Edition Volumes at a reduced price when compared to purchasing them separately.

If you are looking to build a stunning sounding Sibelius Template, this bundled package, containing every Synchron-ized Special Editions instrument currently available, will take your scores to a whole new world of wonder! VSL have gone to great lengths to develop sound sets for all their instruments and once it’s set up, using the special editions with a template is wonderful. I absolutely love this software, as it covers practically every instrument that you could ever wish to write for.

The SYNCHRON-ized Special Edition Bundle delivers a large-scale orchestra with a staggering 157 instruments and ensembles, with a broad range of playing techniques. It’s a powerhouse of symphonic variety in a resource-saving, affordable package. All sounds work perfectly in all musical styles, from pop and rock environments to large symphonic arrangements.

The strings offer a wide variety of choices and timbres, from solo instruments to small ensembles, regular ensemble sizes and to very large string sections, played with and without sordino (muted). Choose from dozens of string presets to get started right away!

All woodwinds are available as two different solo instruments and as ensembles of three musicians. All possible secondary instruments that a modern, large orchestra might include are present as well, from the piccolo clarinet to the bass oboe to saxophones. What’s more, a wide range of historic and rare instruments such as zink, serpent, crumhorns, oboe da caccia, etc. complete the woodwind instruments of this massive bundle.

The brass instruments include two different solo instruments of horns and trumpets as well as two-section sizes of up to eight musicians. A host of secondary instruments rounds out the massive brass section, e.g., six instruments that belong to the trumpet family and four different types of tubas. Historic instruments include ophicleide, natural horns and natural trumpets.

The percussion portion offers two different sets of instruments – our classic, relatively dry recordings from the Silent Stage, as well as the essential drum and percussion instruments (including timpani) that were recorded at Synchron Stage Vienna, showcasing the ambience of one of the best scoring stages on the planet.

A real gem of the SYCHRON-ized Special Editions is the new Synchron Concert D-274 “Light”, our beautiful Steinway & Sons D-274 recorded at Synchron Stage Vienna, with 30 velocities. What’s more, you’ll find six more keyboard instruments, choir, solo voices and plucked instruments in this exuberant collection of instruments.

We’ve added new instruments to the SYNCHRON-ized Special Editions: Solo violin 2, solo cello 2, Synchron Concert D-274, clarinet in Bb 2, trumpet in Bb muted, Synchron Timpani, Synchron Drums, Synchron Cymbals & Gongs, harmonium, prepared piano, upright bass, Vienna Solo Voices.

I’ve developed a complete course showing how to set up a playback configuration and Sibelius template using these lovely Synchron-ized Special Editions samples.

In the course I show, in detail, how to connect everything together, so you’ll have all the information you need to make a playback configuration that could include every instrument currently developed for the special editions (all libraries from 1 through to 7). Doing this makes using Vienna Symphonic Library as easy to use as the Sibelius sounds and will make your Sibelius compositions just come alive.

More information on the course can be found here
