Is there a way to layer two patches together in the Synchron player, like we can do in VIPro. , without having two instances running at the same time? For example I'd like to layer Synchron Strings Pro with the Synchronized Chamber strings.

Thanks in advance!

Alan

Hi Alan,

You can do so by enabling "Parallel Mode": https://www.vsl.info/manuals/synchron-player/dimension-tree-view#parallel-mode

The thing described in the original post is not achievable in Synchron Player as it is in VI Pro, with parallel stacking in the Slots window (up to 4 pairs). The Parallel Mode is for transitions, pretty much as one pair of slots with Slot Crossfade assigned does.

Can you clarify that a bit? Not sure I totally understand what the distinction is.

VI Pro has the capacity for four pairs of slots in a sort of stack. Synchron Player is stacking nothing like that, it's just a type of crossfade like one of the mixer slots in VI Pro. Also, in VI Pro, let's say we're using CC20 for Slot Crossfade: at a value of 127 the B slot is given full volume as well as the A slot; in Synchron, when the next articulation in the dimension is past its threshold it simply means we have fully crossfaded to it. So two long sustaining patches in A and B is a bit dodgy for a realistic single performer emulation, but you have actual stacking up to 8 times.

Hi there,

Of course you can layer multiple sounds, and even more then were possible in the VI player :)

1) Use a dimension and control the selected slot via a dimension controller.
2) Use a dimension with enabled parallel mode to enable crossfading between the articulations
3) Use a dimension with enabled parallel mode and parallel mode set to "Mix" for each slot to simply play everything in parallel
4) Mix 2 and 3 to create some special articulations, for example sustained articulations in mix mode, in combination with short notes or dynamics. Now you can control the amount of accent / marcato vie the dimension controller.

Best, Ben
