Synchron Violas Cantabile F3 & F#3 out of tune

Is there a way to apply a particular tuning (fine tuning in my case) to a Synchron Player instance?

I mean I know about the Edit tuning feature but this one applies patch by patch... In VIpro, there's a global tuning feature in Master Settings which applies to all included patches of the instance. Is there anything similar in Synchron Player?

Thanks.

Hi, 

Yes, the tuning setting on the PERFORM tab affects the whole Synchron Player instance. 

Best,

Hi Paul, thank you.

I tried something with the Perform tuning but it appears the global tuning was not the problem actually . I'm talking about Synchron Violas.

On Synchron Violas, Cantabile Patch (Long/Soft/Cantabile), F3 and F#3 are out of tune (F#3 even more than F3). Tune is dramatically low.

Please find an attached audio file, C3 chromatic scale, successively Soft/Cantabile/Light Vib & Soft/Regular/NoVib. At the end, octaves F3/F4 & F#3/F#4, Cantabile and Regular again.

Hi javajam, 

I'm afraid I can't hear it, and there is also no option to tune individual notes in Synchron Player (or VI Pro). 

One workaround is to work with a second Synchron Player instance that takes care of those 2 notes whenever needed... 

Best, 
Paul

Just listen to carefully, the scale starts on C3, the faulty notes are F and F#.
I noticed that on a line featuring D-F#-A. The D/F# major 3rd interval is terrible (and the minor 3rd F#/A too indeed)...
Both F and F# octaves are dissonant on Cantabile patch.

 As checked with a tuner:
- G3 is similar, whatever Cantabile or Regular
- F3: 348Hz (Cantabile) vs 350Hz (Regular)
- F#3: 368Hz (Cantabile) vs 372Hz (Regular).

Folllowing, here are:

- D3-F#3 line: first with CantabileLightVib, second with RegularVib
- A3-F#3 line: same alternation
- 5th F#3/C#4 chord: 1st & 3rd with CantabileLightVib, 2nd & 4th with RegularVib

It hurts...
