The only Vienna Instruments  library I have is  Special edition I, I am only interested in using VSL from Sibelius, only interested in traditional symphonic orchestra instruments and orchestration. Prefer the sound of a traditional orchestra to the so called Hollywood sound. I have the feeling the Symphonic Cube would be Ideal for me but I am not certain. Perhaps the Synchron Package is a better choice for me?   Ideally I would like to upgrade at once but find it  too expensive, so I want to build up my collection a little at a time without making any of my libraries redundant. My special edition should be the starting point, not something to be replaced.  I suppose if I must prioritize one section over another it would be strings, but I would prefer to add instruments and effects evenly little by little. I would also like to take into consideration the difference in price, so that the price difference between buying the entire Symphonic Cube or Synchron Package at once and buying towards one of these two bit by bit will not be too large. Please recommend possible upgrade paths that will suit these complex criteria.

 

Thank you.

Hi, 

My opinion: You should get the crossgrade to the SYNCHRON-ized Special Edition Volume 1 and then add more SYNCHRON-ized Special Edition volumes as you go. 

More instruments, modern player, great sound out of the box. 

Best, 
Paul

Thank you Paul.

If I can just trouble you with a few more questions.

How much of  the Synchron Series can be controlled from Sibelius?

Are there Sibelius Sound Sets for all Synchron Series products?

Are the VI Series better integrated with Sibelius than the Synchron Series? 

How do the sounds of the VI Series differ from those of the Synchron Series?

Will the Synchron Series replace the VI Series?

Do the samples of the Special Edition become obsolete when installing the Synchron Crossgrade?

Hi, 

Please find all information about Sibelius here, including a list of working instruments. 

"Are the VI Series better integrated with Sibelius than the Synchron Series?"

=> It's the same system. 

"How do the sounds of the VI Series differ from those of the Synchron Series?"

=> Everything Synchron is ready-to-go out of the box (seated, balanced volume levels)... 

Will the Synchron Series replace the VI Series?

=> We're working on making the VI Series also available in the Synchron Player, as an optimized alternative. No reason to stop using the VI Series, if you like it the way it is. 

"Do the samples of the Special Edition become obsolete when installing the Synchron Crossgrade?"

=> Yes, if you don't need to open older arrangements. 

Best, 
Paul

Posted a question early yesterday in the Synchron Forum about crossgrades from the Symphonic Cube to Synchron libraries. Since I'm seeing responses in the section and not in the Synchron forum, I'm linking to that here. I'm double-posting (sorry!) because the information I'm requesting will determine whether or not I purchase the Symphonic Cube. I'd like to get on with the decision. THANKS!!!

Post reads:

I have become a "convert" to the Synchron libraries, having purchased the Synchronized Special Edition (vols 1-4 plus), the Synchronized Woodwinds, and most recently Synchron Strings Pro. All these were purchased at introductory prices. I am hoping for a new Synchron brass product soon in order to cover the basic Winds-Brass-Strings triad.

While the BF sale price on the Symphonic Cube is great and the cost to me of completing it is not high, I hate to put money into more VI instruments unless they confer some benefit to introductory Synchron products. Would owning the Cube  bring such benefits? If so I will be making the purchase.

VI Std Edition Core WW, Brass, Percussion, Spec Editions Complete
SY Strings Pro
SYzd Woodwinds, Special Edition Complete
