this is more subjective but thanks for hearing me out

 In 2017 i'd watch Made in Abyss, one of my favorite anime of all time; followed by a killer soundtrack by Penkin. seeing him composed at a beautiful scoring stage; that when i fell in love with vsl.

coincidentally Vsl soon release the new special editions. to this day there the best vsti i ever used for orchestral work...but still even with the Ir-samples of the scoring stage, the samples lack the full emergence of the space. hearing a rich sound like in the ost of Blue Planet II, I'd eagerly awaited  waited for the full releases of the Synchron Series.

Now that Synchron Strings and Brass is out i want to created that beautiful emerging sounds. is there a possible way to customize the player(mics,level,reverb,) to match Kevin's/Zimmer's work

Thank you, triscore

Ah, Made in Abyss, one of the saddest yet most wonderful things I ever watched.

As to your question, perhaps this thread is relevant:


To summarise, although Synchron products give you a choice of mic placement, the instrument placement and hence the reverb is fixed. If you want to recreate a particular setup (and Penkin's Made in Abyss setup is very particular), it would seem that you may be better off with the old-style VI instruments and then using MIR to place them wherever you want in the Synchron soundstage.

i probably stick with the stage instruments, they have the emergence factor MIR can't recreate. this is probably as close as I can get so I just tinker until I have my ideal set up, thanks
