Description

Absolutely Striking

This all-new Collection of orchestral percussion instruments ushers in a new era for Vienna Symphonic Library. Vienna Symphonic Synchron Percussion I was recorded at Stage A, the main hall, of Vienna’s newly revitalized Synchron Stage Vienna.

Captured in every nuanced detail with an expansive, phase-controlled multi-microphone set-up, it 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.

16 Instruments

Synchron Percussion I includes 16 essential orchestral percussion instruments that are owned by Synchron Stage Vienna and permanently housed in climate-controlled rooms in the building’s basement. All of the leading prestigious manufacturers are represented in this premium selection of instruments, including Adams, Bergerault, Kolberg, Lefima, Meinl, Yamaha, and Zildjian.

Included Instruments:

  • 5 Timpani (Adams; C2–C#4)
  • Bass Drum (Kolberg “Dicke Bertha” 36"x28")
  • Snare Drum (Kolberg “Piano-Forte” Rosewood 14"x 6,5")
  • 8 Concert Toms (Yamaha CT-9000 series; 6"-16")
  • Xylophone (Adams Artist Alpha; C4–C8)
  • Glockenspiel (Yamaha 2500; C5–E8)
  • Celesta (Kolberg; C3–F8)

  • Triangles (7 sizes)

12 Microphones

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 Instruments and Vienna Instruments Pro players, or using our mixing hosts Vienna Ensemble and Vienna Ensemble Pro. Use the included and perfectly fine-tuned presets as a starting point for your own mixes. The natural volume envelopes and the sonic character of the instruments remained untouched during recording and editing. The performances in Stage A were captured in stereo using a Decca tree, and additional microphone arrays were utilized for 5.1 surround and Auro 3D 9.1.

Microphone Positions of the Standard Library:

  • Close Mic – Mono
  • Mid Layer Mic – Stereo (L/R)
  • Main/Room Mic – Decca Tree Stereo (L/R)
  • Main/Room Mic – Decca Tree Mono (Center)

Outstanding Acoustics

The instruments were recorded at Stage A of the Synchron Stage Vienna. This 540 m2 (5,813 sq ft) hall has proven to be a remarkable space, not only for film music recordings, but also for sampling sessions. It is characterized by a lush and warm sound and a perfect localization of the instruments, with a reverb time of 1.6 to 1.8 seconds, and with no masking effect in the low frequencies, as often happens with large halls. The colossal room-in-room construction, built upon a massive concrete foundation, combined with sound insulation and a specially designed air conditioning system, results in a ridiculously low noise-floor of 16 dBA, even with the air conditioner running!

Perfect Climatic Conditions

Synchron Stage Vienna is equipped with a sophisticated system for heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) that provides absolutely consistent air quality (humidity and temperature) between the large Stage A and the percussion storage room. So every instrument is in pristine condition for performance, day and night, session after session.

3D Sound

Auro 3D is an immersive audio technology that allows for three-dimensional sound perception. The Belgian company Auro Technologies developed this technology based on a special speaker configuration, adding four additional speakers to a 5.1 surround configuration. These speakers (so-called “Heights”) are situated above the front and surround speakers and generate acoustic reflections that are perceived naturally due to the fact that sounds originate from around as well as from above the listener. Thanks to the comprehensive selection of discrete audio channels of Synchron Cymbals & Gongs I (Full Library) you may mix your instruments in Auro 3D as well as in Dolby Atmos.

Flexible Timbral Control

The natural volume envelopes and the sonic character of the instruments remained untouched during recording and editing. You may shape your individual sound and ambience within the Vienna Instruments or Vienna Instruments Pro players and the mixing hosts Vienna Ensemble or Vienna Ensemble Pro. The included presets provide perfectly fine-tuned source material.
