The products of the Synchron Series combine extraordinary musicianship, engineering, recording technology and software innovation with the exceptional acoustics of one of the best-sounding scoring stages on the planet. All instruments are based on our brand-new Vienna Synchron Player.
Some of these libraries, labeled "SYNCHRON" were recorded at our own Synchron Stage Vienna and played by members of the Synchron Stage Orchestra.
Other libraries, labeled "SYNCHRON-ized", contain re-edited samples from our VI Series that were customized and mapped for the Vienna Synchron Player.
Synchron FX Strings I is our most daring strings library to date, recorded with the signature ambience of our newly refurbished scoring stage, Synchron Stage Vienna. For the first time in Vienna Symphonic Library’s long history of developing sample libraries, this Collection includes production-ready musical textures and loops.

This solo instruments collection of two violins, one viola, two cellos and one double bass is based on our extremely successful Collections VI Solo Strings I, Solo Violin 2 and Solo Cello 2, offering a completely overhauled sample database that’s optimized for the Vienna Synchron Player.
SYNCHRON-ized Chamber Strings features 21 instruments (six first violins, six second violins, four violas, three cellos, and two double basses) that not only cover the entire spectrum of chamber music literature, but can also enhance any larger string orchestra by adding more nuances, colors and a wealth of variations to your orchestral palette.
With 20 first violins, 20 second violins, 14 violas, 12 cellos and 10 double basses, these lavish ensembles lend themselves perfectly well to soaring emotive themes as well as action-packed scores, producing that larger-than-life cinematic sound that Synchron Stage Vienna’s film scoring clients are returning to over and over again.
The string players of SYNCHRON-ized Dimension Strings I were recorded in homogeneous groups, capturing all of the human interactions and slight imperfections of a live performance. Individual microphones for each player allow you to access each voice of the ensemble separately.
All instruments were exclusively recorded “con sordino” (with mutes) that dampen the transmission of energy from the strings to the body of the instrument and soften or darken the sound.
This Collection features five string ensembles that were exclusively played “sul tasto”. This special playing technique is characterized by placing the bow near the fingerboard, resulting in a lack of (even) harmonics and a very soft, breathy timbre, similar to that of a flute playing in pianissimo.
While every note was played by a well-rehearsed ensemble of four players, each instrument was recorded with a dedicated microphone. As a result, you may access each instrument individually in order to change sound characteristics, volume, articulation, and performance accuracy intuitively in real-time while playing an ensemble preset.
As an addition to SYNCHRON-ized Dimension Brass I, this Collection includes three muted brass ensembles: Four trumpets, four French horns, and four trombones were played exclusively with “straight mutes” and recorded as ensembles, with the addition of four Wagner tubas.
The SYNCHRON-ized Dimension Brass Bundle features eight well-rehearsed ensembles of four brass players each. The musicians were recorded in groups, but with dedicated microphones for each instrument, resulting in a homogenous ensemble sound while still allowing direct access to each voice.
This library is based on the VI Collection Special Keyboards, optimized and enhanced for the Vienna Synchron Player. With its straightforward preset and patch structure, the various registers and techniques are clearly laid out and easily accessible. In addition to the “classic” presets, the new FX Presets offer otherworldly, mysterious and unexpected sounds.
Captured in every nuanced detail with an expansive, phase-controlled multi-microphone set-up, Synchron Percussion I delivers to your studio all the character and vibe of the world’s finest percussion instruments, masterfully played in one of the best-sounding scoring stages in the world.

The drum kit is the pillar of a groove. Put three kits together in a fantastic ambient room and you’ll have an explosion of pounding energy. That’s the concept behind Synchron Power Drums – hard-hitting, energetic drum grooves played simultaneously on three independent yet interacting drum kits in Synchron Stage Vienna’s famous main hall.

The unique instruments from our VI Elements Collection have long been a trade secret for composers and sound designers, capturing their imagination with its archaic sounds that range from ethereal shimmers to thunderous strikes. For the SYNCHRON-ized version, we have expanded the library’s breadth of sound, not only by adding more extraordinary instruments, but also by creating a host of other-worldly sonic effects using the Synchron Player’s extensive plug-in and routing options.
This library is based on the VI Single Instruments Upright Bass, Concert Guitar and Overdrive, customized and enhanced for the new Synchron Player. Our editors and engineers updated and re-edited all three instruments to improve their ease-of-use and playability.
The Synchron Package includes all products of our SYNCHRON SERIES at a discounted bundle price. These products combine extraordinary musicianship, engineering, recording technology and software innovation with the exceptional acoustics of one of the best-sounding scoring stages on the planet.
