Play more plucked instruments with this expansion.
This library is based on the VI Single Instruments Upright Bass, Concert Guitar and Overdrive, customized and enhanced for the new Synchron Player. Vienna's editors and engineers updated and re-edited all three instruments to improve their ease-of-use and playability, with the goal of enabling authentic performances, especially for playing these instruments on the keyboard. The team not only improved the sample database by optimizing all release sounds, but also revised and further developed the Synchron Player's Velocity Crossfade feature to adapt it to the sonic behavior of plucked instruments.
Using the Synchron Player's straightforward preset and patch structure, the wide variety of articulations is clearly laid out and easily accessible. This makes each instrument and their sonic possibilities a breeze to navigate and play. Expertly crafted mixer presets feature customized impulse responses of Synchron Stage Vienna for solo and orchestral settings. Placing these instruments on the scoring stage or in your mix is fast and simple.
Upright Bass features recordings of a plucked bass with a variety of jazz playing techniques. They are performed by Bernd Konzett, a well-known jazz bassist from the Austrian state of Vorarlberg. The articulations are played pizzicato and include staccatos, potatoes and sustains with various vibrato strengths, legatos, slow and fast glissandos, repetitions, ghost notes as well as single, double and triple upbeats at various tempos. The Upright Bass sample set is rounded off by snaps, noises and various other effects.
The Vienna Concert Guitar is the only one of its kind. This handmade instrument has a balanced, homogeneous sound that allows it to stand its ground as a solo instrument as well as in accompaniment, offering single notes and chords. The single notes include various short notes (including Bartok, étouffé and hammer-ons), long notes (including flautando, ponticello, Bartok, étouffé, natural and artificial harmonics), legatos, glissandos, repetitions, tremolos, trills, bends and effects such as harp, golpe, tambora, scratches and chord mutes. The broad range of chords in all keys and various playing positions are offered in the categories of regular, rasgueado, rasgueado rolls and arpeggios, in ringing, secco and stopped variants. All of them are easy to access and combine, using key switches to navigate the color-coded structure.
Overdrive - Distorted Electric Guitar Overdrive features distorted tube sound recordings of a legendary Steve Vai signature seven-string guitar, played through a Brunetti XL II R-EVO amp head and a Marshall 1960TV 4x12" cabinet. Along with various short and sustained notes (with or without vibrato, or whammy bar), you get legatos, slides, hammer-ons, pull-offs, repetitions, tremolos, trills, grace notes, natural and artificial harmonics as well as a large variety of scale runs. A special treat are the various flavors of chords, especially the mighty power chords for those about to rock. What's more, there are loads of effects such as feedbacks, scratches, and e-bowed notes. All notes start at B0 on the lower end, extending the range of a standard guitar down a 4th.
