Overview

Crossgrade from Solo Strings 1, standard.

This solo instruments collection of two violins, one viola, two cellos and one double bass is based on Vienna's extremely successful Collections VI Solo Strings I, Solo Violin 2 and Solo Cello 2, offering a completely overhauled sample database that's optimized for the Vienna Synchron Player. During production, the team's goal was to improve each instrument's playability and realism even more, which was achieved by enhancing the sample recordings, as well as utilizing the Synchron Player's unique features.

SYNCHRON-ized Solo Stringscomes with the same number of deep sampled articulations as the original VI Solo Strings I, with a clearly laid out and color coded structure in the Synchron Player fora great overview and quick access to the vast selection of playing techniques.

One of the major improvements is made possible by the Synchron Player's time-stretch feature. Now you can change vibrato speed in real-time using a MIDI controller! Real-time time-stretching also allows you to change the speed of tremolos, trills, portamentos and glissandos by assigning a CC controller to the Synchron Player's "Stretch Factor" fader. You can even speed up or slow down scale runs while they're playing back or automatically sync them to the host tempo!

Harnessing the Synchron Player's new release sample technology and adding a variety of optimized release sounds to a lot of articulations greatly increases their range of use. Short notes ring out authentically depending on the body resonance and the note's volume. Long and medium length notes such as détaché, portato, crescendos and diminuendos can be played shorter than their recorded length and are still automatically provided with authentic release sounds. This way, for instance, you can use the first part of crescendo notes as soft portato articulations, or the first part of diminuendo notes as an espressivo technique with a slight decrescendo that sounds very musical and natural.

The original repetition performances that include articulations from legato and portato variations to staccato and spiccato were also enhanced by the new release sample technology and by a new repetition and interval logic. These new "Multi Shorts" patches automatically provide you with notes that sound very natural in medium and fast passages, depending on the note you played before (the same note or an interval) and on how long a note is played. The new "Dynamic Layer" patch derived from the original repetition recordings offers up to nine velocity layers of each articulated note so you can play passages with extremely nuanced dynamics, accessing the individual velocity layers of each articulation with the mod wheel or key velocity.

The meticulously balanced volume levels of the entire sample database allow for seamless note transitions when moving from one playing technique to the next. Velocity crossfading has been further optimized for extra-smooth volume changes. Many articulations are now available as looped notes such as sustains (with and without vibrato), trills, tremolos and more. Unlooped legatos are still available and demonstrate the natural musicality of each beautifully articulated target note as performed by the musician.

World-Class Acoustics
The reverberation and placement presets created by Synchron Stage sound engineers combine customized impulse responses and Vienna MIR technology with expertly crafted reverb settings for each instrument so they are placed perfectly in the large hall of Synchron Stage Vienna, one of the world's best sounding scoring stages. You can also turn off the Player's convolution reverb and algorithmic reverb and place the dry samples in any other environment. By adding the ambience of Synchron Stage Vienna's Stage Ato the dry samples in real-time, SYNCHRON-ized Solo Strings perfectly blend with any other product of Vienna's Synchron Series, resulting in a production-ready sound "out of the box".
