The Vienna Symphonic Library has announced the release of a new instrument library based on the VI Collection Saxophones. SYNCHRON-ized Saxophones features soprano, alto, tenor, baritone and bass saxophone that were recorded in the tight and controlled ambience of Vienna’s second studio, the Silent Stage.

Featuring a wide variety of articulations for symphonic music and Jazz, the entire sample database was re-edited, updated and optimized for the Vienna Synchron Player. This brings more flexibility, playability, and liveliness to the sample database, with features such as timbre adjust, time-stretching, and advanced real-time algorithms.

All five solo instruments of this Collection are perfectly positioned at the virtual Synchron Stage Vienna, utilizing the Synchron Player’s convolution reverb based on Vienna MIR technology. Presets such as close, classic, and distant make it easy to place and reverberate the instruments with pre-configured combinations of convolution and algorithmic reverbs. Further mixer presets such as Smokey, Dark, Hard Compressed or Smooth Delay help users dial in the right mood for thier project or serve as great starting points for their own timbre creations.

By selecting the “MIR Unprocessed” preset without any reverb or placement it is possible to use the saxophones completely dry, place them anywhere in the stereo field, and incorporate any reverb, such as the rooms provided by Vienna MIR Pro 3D.

SYNCHRON-ized Saxophones is currently available at an introductory price of $205 USD (regular $310 USD). Upgrade paths from the VI Series Collection Saxophones as well as from Single Instruments are available, starting at $35 USD.

The offer is available at the VSL store and from distributor Best Service.

At the same time, the Austrian company announces an update of Vienna MIR Pro 3D that now supports Apple Silicon natively and comes with major performance improvements on all platforms. Under the same CPU load, computers can now handle up to twice as many sound sources placed on MIR’s venues as before.

A promotion on all Smart Series libraries with discounts of up to 50% accompanies the releases.
