The Vienna Symphonic Library announces the release of Synchron Prime Edition, a powerful orchestra library that gathers the essential instruments and articulations of Vienna’s successful Synchron Series into one affordable and resource-saving collection that is easy to use, versatile and fun to play. The new library is currently available at an introductory price of €445 (reg. €595). Upgrade paths towards the large Synchron Series Collections as well as crossgrade prices for users of one or more Synchron Collections are available.

The Synchron Prime Edition is a 70 GB all-in-one package that provides users with everything they need to create stunning orchestral arrangements with breathtaking realism and pristine sound packed with emotion. It includes stellar performances by the acclaimed solo instrumentalists and ensembles of the Synchron Stage Orchestra, who for many years have been lending their talents and artistry to clients from Hollywood and all over the world. Captured with a state-of-the-art multi-microphone setup in one of the best scoring stages on the planet, the recordings feature the outstanding ambience of Synchron Stage Vienna. The large Stage A of VSL’s own studio complex in Vienna elevates not only the sound of the musicians’ fine instruments, but also the performances of the well-rehearsed players and ensembles as they respond to each other and to the outstanding acoustics of this hall.

Everything in this collection is so well-balanced and matched that it’s easy to create entire orchestral arrangements or simple parts quickly and effortlessly. The Vienna Synchron Player provides users with a wide and well-organized range of articulations, all following the same system. With matching mixer presets all the instruments and ensembles can be easily placed together in a variety of settings, from close-miked to different types of ambience and reverb.

Users can also easily create their own sound using the Vienna Synchron Player’s integrated mixer and its host of effects. Each instrument comes with a Room Mix that blends overhead Decca tree mics and surround mics to a stereo signal, in addition to a close-mic signal for solo instruments and a mid-mic signal for ensembles.
