I may be completely deaf, but I can't appreciate the differences between strings, woodwinds and brass pads of the Smart Orchestra (e.g. Shimmering Promise). What am I missing?

You're not completely deaf :)  I believe that you're expecting the selection between Strings / Woodwinds / Brass to select between the sections. As far as I know, that selection thing is for configuring those different sections – which I know means key range, and I'm not sure what, if anything else, can be configured.

That particular patch uses the mixer to adjust the balance between the sections. So, bring "Mix Strings Volume" and "Mix Woodwinds Volume" to 0, and you will hear the unmistakable sound of Brass drenched in reverb.

Personally I find Synchron player very confusing, and haven't had time or motivation to dig in and learn it. So I run into similar problems as you, quite frequently. Hopefully this helps a bit.

Just quick: The structure of our Synchron Player presets is alwayys from the left side to the right, and it's important to check if the BLUE PARALLEL button is activated on top of a dimension, this means that all cells are stacked!

Hope this info reduces confusion. I am also showing the basics in our walkthrough videos, here is the one for Smart Orchestra.
