First, what exactly does the offer to use the MIR Synchron stage room set for free during the introductory offer mean? Does that mean everybody gets it for free who will buy the Percussion bundle or can I just try it out for free during the room packs introductory offer? It is not formulated in a way you can be sure about that IMO ...

Then, I really wonder what the free Taiko is all about. IMO it doesn't really make sense .. why yould you give this out now and later make available never again? If I remember correctly, the same was announced regarding the Jazz drums as a freebie for buying Vienna Suite. And Jazz Drums were sold later as a download intrument anyway, right? So, please VSL! Don't join those bloody marketing guys as so many others do ... I have much more respect for you the way you mostly handled intro deals and marketing up to now. I guess it is tempting, as you may achieve some quick reults with it, but keep in mind, most customers have a memory for such things and on the long runn it will do more bad then good yor your reputation. This is just my 2 cents, of course! YOu don't need to reply on it, I just wanna give feedback on a company I hold dearly ...

Hi fritzflotow, 

It's always a good idea to ask if something is not clear, and thanks for your feedback!

I will try to put our current introductory offer in different words: 

If you have registered Synchron Percusion I (no matter if it is the Standard or Full Library), you are entitled to get the Synchron Stage RoomPack for free, during the RoomPacks introductory period.

If you have purchased separate instrument groups, make sure that you complete the Synchron Percussion I Collection to get the free RoomPack. 

As always with our software products, it will be possible to test the new Synchron Stage RoomPack with a free 30 day demo license. 

 

The BONUS Taiko drum is a gift for our dear early-adopters. We want to make you happy, and this bonus preview of the Giant Taiko is a great "appetizer" for more exciting things to come (which, unfortunately, I cannot tell you more about at this point). 

Best, 
Paul

Hi All,

Slightly different issue here but somewhat related.

I purchased Synchron Percussion - on VSL hard drive. I'm in between houses/studios for a few weeks as I'm moving 2,000 miles. I don't have access to my equipment, my computers or my eLicenser dongles as they're all in storage until the 2nd week of June.  

So I haven't figured out how to register Sychcron Percussion in order to get access to download the new Synchron MIR pack. I'd sure hate to miss out on this deal especially because I both qualify for it and know of it. I'm not even exactly sure when the end date of this offer is. I believe the Synchron deal ends May 31st. I'm not sure if the MIR deal is tied to this date also. 

Any idea how I can take advantage of this offer?

Thanks,

Jack 

PS-

I was happily surprised that the VSL hard drive had all the VSL libraries on it. A nice safety backup. I do however wish that it wasn't Write Protected so I could replace libraries with their updates as they become available - For example - it would be nice if I could've put the Synchron Taiko and the update to the Synchron Timpani on the same drive for backup purposes.

Hi Jack, 

Your Synchron Percussion I is already registered on your account, so you're good to go for the free RoomPack and also the free Bonus Taiko. 

I'll check what can be done about the write protection. I assume you are working on a Mac, correct?

Best, 
Paul

Hi Paul,

one technical question ...

Do we receive another Licensecode for the Roompack via Email or is the License included in the SP1 - Licensecode that we have received with the purchase of SP 1?

Thanks & Best

Lars

@fritzflotow: Why do you complain about free gifts?
Regarding to JazzDrums ... If you take a (history-)look in the Internet you will see that the "Free-Jazzdrums" were released in 2008 while the final Jazzdrum-Package was released in 2012!! So even here the ones who reveived the 2008-package were "very early & lucky birds"!
The Free Taiko has single hits (no rolls or something special), but thanks to the VSL team from my side! And a free MIR-Roompack is the best gift ever!! Thanks again!!

Hi Paul,

Yes, working on a Mac. 

Wondering, where do I find that MIR Synchron download. Is it even available as of yet?

Thanks,

Jack

Hi Lars, Jack, 

I confirm that MIR RoomPack 6 - Synchron Stage Vienna will be a separate product, so it will also come with its own Activation Code.
RoomPack 6 is not available as of yet - we're working hard on it - and we will let you know in this thread once you can get it, so that you can also take advantage of the promotional offer.

By the way, Mac users cannot write to NTFS formatted drives like our Vienna Hard Drive by default (ask Apple why that is), but if you install a NTFS plugin on your Mac you will be able to do so. ;-)

Best,
Stefan

I don't complain. I just don't like the way marketing is working these days. Intro offers are ok and I appreciate the free room pack and the reduced price point. I find it hard to believe that the Taiko is exclusive during the intro offer ... why would you record a whole instrument to make it only available for a months in bundle with something else? Just doesn't seem logical to me and comes off as an attempt to keep adding reasons, why YOU REALLY NEED TO BUY THIS NOW!!!! :-) If you know anything about marketing, that is part of how it works, to make people feel an urgency to purchase using psychology. I know it is part of our current culture, unfortunately! So, all I wanted to say was, I liked it that VSL held back with this, did their introductory offer with every new product but didn't join the club of writing 10 newsletters in a row on one topic and all of that turbo marketing crap. I see in this announcement a step in that direrection. There was an intro deal and then they created a second announcement to increase the talk about it and make it even more interesting and the exclusive Taiko seems strange to me - I don't really think you will never see it in any other form for sale (or as another goodie) ... It is ok and it probably works quite well and I whish all the best to VSL! But I hope they will stay as they mostly were up to know regarding both sampling and sales philosophy ... not joining all those hypes and crazyiness. All that seems lile a lot of noise to me that does not suite a company dealing with music. As I said: This is my opinion on modern marketing! if you like it, that is ok with me! But please don't put words into my mouth. I did never say I don't like a gift and if you just read what I wrote, wou will know that perfectly well.

As Paul writes the Taiko is just a sneak preview of the Taiko-Family which will surely include the Big Taiko too , not just Single hits but rolls and effects and and and ... surprise ... ;)

I like this way of marketing from VSL because it shows how excited they are when they are producing their products. I do not think that it was planned from the beginning of the Sale. I think the idea came when they recorded the Big Taiko and they were flashed by this bombastic sound and decided to share this experience with some people.

This was happening quite a few times. I heard they gave not only free-samples for the Jazzdrums, but also for the Appassionatas, before the final result came out. Think of the early bird offer for Dimension Strings 1. I paid only 600 Bugs for the whole product. When you see the price for DS1 today, it can only be described as a crazy, but very nice decision of this Company who just wanted to share their excitement with interested users.

This is not the common way of marketing. This is unique! There is only one other company which comes to my mind who is so close to their customers: Synthesizer-producer U-he. That's why I decided to take my Synth-Sortiment from U-he and not from Native Instruments or Others out there.

The Passion-Factor is the key to the greatest sounding results. VSL have most passion. That's why I collect only VSL and have no other "orchestral" product from a competitor. In other words: This way of marketing works for me.

Best Lars

Regarding to the Roompack Synchron Stage ...

I knew that VSL would do something good to give the users a hand who have decided to dive into both worlds (dry samples and Synchron)

But I thougt that they would put the Synchron MIR into Roompack 2 and increase the final price of this Pack a little after an intro-period.

But the decision they made is even better!

I really don't  see the point for this lecturing to VSL. There's nothing bad in what they're doing. As LAJ said, it's a matter of their enthusiasm to share their achievements with their customers. 
The taiko is probably just a preview from the Synchron Percussion II; who purchase right now the product has this chance to use synchron taikos before all other users.
Bad marketing is totally another thing; bad marketing is to release and advertise new libraries every month, to release incomplete libraries, bugged or bad scripted libraries. Bad marketing is making demo and video with over produced sounds that the user will probably never capable of duplicate. Just to say a couple of examples of "bad marketing".

Hallo Stefan,

in myVSL finde ich noch nichts. Könntest du uns bitte den Stand der Dinge nennen? Auch wegen des notwendigen elicenser-Codes.  Danke!

Gruß Lars

Hi everyone,

RoomPack 6 - Synchron Stage Vienna is available as per today, and we've extended the introductory period until June 30, 2017, as so many people were asking for an extension.

This means that you can:
1) Still take advantage of the introductory offer for Synchron Percussion I and its sub-sets in June,
2) Having or getting Synchron Percussion I (the complete library) qualifies you to get RoomPack 6 free of charge, only in June 2017,
3) If you’re not yet a user of Vienna MIR Pro or MIR Pro 24, get Synchron Percussion I by June 30, 2017 - or have it registered already - and you can jump into Vienna MIR Pro 24 for just €207!

I hope you all can relate to our enthusiasm for these fantastic new products!
All news on the ongoing promotion (there's also a 40% discount on Extended Libraries!) are available here.
Enjoy! :)

Best,
Stefan

Hi Stefan,

Yes, I'm very exicted to try this out.  I have Synchron Percussion but I don't see the Roompack in my downloads.  Can you tell me how I can get this so that I may quell my itching enthusiam. :)

 

Also, is it possible to get the wav (or aif) file of Starwars demo for Roompack 6?

 

Thanks,

Greg

Just do it as I mentioned 2 lines above ...

Put the MIR-Synchron-Product into the Basket and it will show a price of 0 €! (for people who bought the Synchron Percussions 1 Bundle)
