A question about these SYN-zed releases:

Guy Bacos' demo of them shows a lot of use of the new Timbre Adjust feature.  Has Timbe Adjust been specifically engineered to work with these libraries (like it was for Synchron Brass)?  If they have, has it also been implemented into the original SYN-zed Woodwinds?

Great news: a lot of dynamics of the VI libraries implemented now in the 12 Essential Synchron-ized Woodwinds. I'm just working on a piece with among others a lot of woodwinds, the dynamics (cresc., dim. pfp) are indispensable. Until now I used for the dynamics the VI version of the instruments. That's not necessary anymore.
And you activated Timbre Adjust for the woodwinds, this works also great in many occasions. A very useful tool among the others to sculpt the sound. Thanks, VSL, you made my day  .

Feeling very inspired by all of the splendid bonus additions - and very spoilt by VSL!. Many of these super quality new plays will take some time to really know and use to best advantage - it's almost like having a new library.

Thank you so much, you wonderful team!

Is there a detailed list of this second expansion pack's articulations (September 2021). The overview I'm seeing refers to the first expansion pack (with the pure legatos).

Timbre Adjust can be used with all your libraries as an additional level of control. Feel free to add the corresponding fader via the "+" icon under "PERFORM" or "CONTROL" - but make sure the Vienna Synchron Player is up to date!

Yes, the list on the product page will be updated soon! You can also find detailed info in the manual here:

I can't test it now, but if I understand correctly, Timbre Adjust has been developed together with the Synchron Brass library. At the same time, it can work on any other sound. With strings, the response may be a bit out, due to the difference in spectral content. With woodwinds, maybe it can be effective enough, even if not optimized for that category of sounds.

Check the "02 Flute 1 VelXF sus" preset. The diminuendos are loaded with crescendo patches. The corresponding Flute 2 preset is correctly mapped.

Right, I know.  What I mean to ask is if the Timbre Adjust control will work in specific, programmed ways with the new SYN-zed Woodwind libraries (like it was specifically engineered to work with Synchron Brass), or if it applies a general effect to the sound like it does to any library that isn't Synchron Brass?

Hi SeventhSam, 

Timbre Adjust applies the same effect to all instruments, with slightly different results due to the sonic characteristics of the instrument sections. 

Best, 
Paul

1. I do not have to pay much, at present, for my Synchronized Single Woodwinds, from VI Pro, but is there a good enough reason to do so?

2. Are all the Articulations in my VI Pro version mimicked in the Synchronized version?

For me a good reason should be the new feature in the Synchron Player, called 'timbre adjust'. It helps a lot with expression. VIPro doesn't have that feature.

I don't know the answer on the question of the articulations.

Another reason could be that there are free expression maps of the Synchron-ized Woodwinds for Dorico, and not for the VIPro version.

Thank you for your response;

 

Synchron Player loads quite a bit faster, than VIPro and is in VST3 format so uses less resources. I have looked into this further and, although I very much like the 'Timbre Adjust' on Pianos and some Synchronized Instruments, I still find that VIPro has more to offer me. It is not as 'pretty', but, after years of using it, I prefer it, overall. Plus it has all the Mordents and Trills laid out in a way I have gotten used to. Experimentally and Creatively speaking VIPro is, in my opinion, superior. 

It is easy enough to make Expression Maps in Cubase/Nuendo (is Dorico using a different system?), but I do use the ones provided by ART.

The expression maps that Dorico uses, are different from the Cubase expression maps. It is possible to import Cubase expression maps in Dorico, and they can work to a certain extent, but almost always you have to adapt things.
Often it works faster to create a new expression map than to use and adapt a Cubase expression map.
