The piatti, which are played in pairs, were recorded with normal and muted release, as well as loose, sizzling, dragged over each other and scratched. The suspended cymbals were played with sticks, mallets, rods, brushes, as well as bowed. The instruments were sampled with up to 12 dynamic levels and up to 6 round robins for single strokes.

Suspended cymbal ensemble (big, medium and small Zildjian cymbals)

Every instrument was recorded using 12 microphones. You may select from four microphone positions (Standard Library) or seven different microphone positions (Full Library) and mix them to your liking, directly in the Vienna Synchron Player.
