Are user patches for these pianos located somewhere on this website?

Or, is my only recourse to read through all of the threads and hope to stumble upon some that have been shared. 

Thanks so much! :-)

All of them are pretty much (like you said) scattered around the respective threads related to both pianos. 

Would be nice to have a user preset thread for the Synchron pianos. I have a couple to share.

Share them here, if you like.

Perhaps start a trend? :-)

Hi guys,

I have made this thread a "sticky" thread, so let's see who is ready to contribute.

Uploading zip files with the presets is the way to go 

Best, 
Paul

Simple Preset for the CFX in Player position.
I use this preset with headphones and my 7 years old notebook; did not test with speakers.
Only RoomMix + CloseMic are used, for performance reasons.

Best, Ben

When I accidentally tried to load Lucy's steinway presets, the synchron player just silently loaded it and gave no indicator that anything was wrong.  (Edit: to clarify, I think this happened because I don't have the steinway piano yet)

Would it be possible to make a more user-friendly warning that "hey, you don't have all the supported mic positions" or "you don't have this library for the preset you're trying to load" ?

In any case, not a big deal.

Also, attached is my first Yamaha CFX (requires full library) preset.   Also included a screenshot of VSL Master EQ I had used outside of the Synchron Player.  Cheers!

Here is my favorite preset for the Steinway D (Ribbon mic and Mid 2 mic taking the pole position with the Condenser mic and the equalized Tube mic behind). Hope you enjoy!

Best,

Mango

I've been trying a lot of different settings for my preferred CFX setup.  Here's another preset of my latest configuration, I think I'm mostly done tweaking.

Screenshot attached with the preset, shows the EQ settings I've been using.  The high shelf on the second EQ, it's currently off on the screenshot, but I've been playing around with it.  I feel there's just a slight amount of ligering resonances in high frequencies that can go away when using the high shelf, but I'm torn about also loosing the general brightness when playing the piano harder.

Also, I've attached a quick mp3 improv (with bad notes cleaned up) to demonstrate this preset.  Recorded with the EQ settings as shown on the screenshot.

Comments and feedback welcome, thanks!

I think mine (posted at the other thread) are available at the VSL site, or maybe they just show up there when I'm logged in because it knows I posted them and so links them to my account.

I'm kind of busy planning for my godson's wedding, but if I need to repost the presets here, I can do so -- I just don't want to junk up the server with redundant files.

These are my presets of CFX and D-274. (both are Full ver.)

I recommend adjusting the volume to fit your speakers.

Both may sound dry, so I use an external reverb with these presets.

And 'angmyu D-274 (2nd)' preset is for users that has good computer specifications because this uses many mics. I think it will be impossible to operate with a regular computer.

Which reverb do you use?

I'm finally starting to work with the new Bluthner 1895 library tonight, but it's late so I'm tired, and couldn't figure out how to save mixer presets in the new version (or even call up existing ones, other than via the strip at the bottom that seems a bit too coarse and non-hierarchical, but maybe that's just a difference vs. Synchron Player which I'm more familiar with).

[ UPDATE: It appears that Synchron Pianos does not support mixer-level presets ]

After giving up on that, I worked rather rapidly from a fairly intimate starting point, doing just minor tweaks to customize until getting a good sound for the "bubble" used in reggae and ska music.

I had been using various Yamaha libraries and uprights for most of those duties, but have been moving to other piano sources of late, that I am finding open up the sound more and especially help the brass to shine better when it's ska or reggae with horns.

I've only tried this preset so far on an up-tempo ska arrangement of a well-known reggae song that I have added my own unique flavour to, and it was just the ticket: finally, after many other piano choices, the perfect balance for percussive, no-sustain playing, giving me the ideal mix with the guitar and organ.

I am attaching my ska preset, but do keep in mind that I kept in place some EQ settings that came from the factory "intimate" settings (if I remember which one I selected; I think that was the one).

My first effort to make a fortepiano out of the Blüthner 1895 piano. Full version mics are required, unfortunately. But I guess it can be done with the Standard collection, since what is needed is a dry, less resonant sound. The Ribbon mics are however adding a pleasant quality and musicality to the sound.

If someone can improve on it, I'll be very happy to try it!

Paolo

Hey Stephen,

 

I'd love to try your preset. Unfortunately it doesn't load for me (it says "Could not load "Steinway 1"). Does anyone else have this problem?

Hmm... anyone else having this problem?  An update wouldn't have changed things, right?
