Hi Folks,

 

Please forgive me for this question. I am brand new to VSL and about to purchase my first library.

What are the primary differences between Vienna Instrumemnts Pro vs Ensemble 6 vs Synchron?

 

Are they all sample players with different features?

Again, I am sorry if I am overlooking the obvious here. 

 

Thank you so much,

d.

Hi,

First: Vienna Ensemble (Pro) is not a player. It is a Instrument host that can offload the instrument hosting from your DAW and even to slave machines in your network. You can add VST effects and mix and route everything to your DAW. Also Vienna MIR works best within VEP. It's a very cool tool and can optimize your template and workflow.

Vienna Instruments is a sample player of the silent-stage instruments from VSL. It works great, is performant and the Pro version adds some great additional features.

Synchron player is the newest sample player and is used for the synchron series instruments. It has a different approach: articulations are organized with a tree-structure instead of multiple matrices like in Instruments. Also it has much better support for multi-mic sampled instruments.

In short: If you buy an instrument from the VI series, you will use the Instruments (Pro) player, if from Synchron Series you will use the Synchron player.
And on top of that whether you use VI or Synchron or both, VE Pro is a nice addition.

Hope this helps.

Best, Ben

You did not really ask for advice and I am sure you can decide perfectly on your own, but let me just throw this in: The Vienna Synchron player is amazing and much more user friendly than anything else I have ever used.

Hi there,

I'm in the same situation. I already purchased Chamber Strings and Solo Strings and I'm close to switch to Synchron Player. I'm just hesitating, because I'm wondering, If I would be able to also create a direct sound with for example Synchronized Dimension Strings. Is it possible to blend out the room of the Synchron Stage to get a dry and direct sound? This would be important for me, because I use the strings additionally in current productions and in many cases I have to get them in the mix by using different reverbs.

Best,
Axel

Hi Axel,

in the Mix-View you can turn off the IR of the Synchron-stage, or set the amount of Wet sound, just like in most IR reverb plugins.

There are also multiple presets you can choose from: Close, Classic and Distant.

Best, Ben
