Vienna Symphonic Library’s latest release places an entire orchestra across the keyboard, offering a quick and simple way to sketch out new ideas with a large symphonic sound. Synchron Smart Orchestra features performances by the acclaimed Synchron Stage Orchestra, and has been captured on the large Stage A at VSL’s Synchron Stage Vienna.
The instrument includes ensemble sections taken from various VSL orchestral libraries, and allows users to play string, woodwind, brass, percussion and choir parts either separately or all at once, with a mixer allowing the balance between sections to be adjusted. A range of smaller groups and solo instruments are also present, including a violin ensemble, cello ensemble, flute, oboe, clarinet, trumpet, horn, harp, and celesta.
The instrument can also be configured so that players are able to trigger the large ensemble sections with their left hand whilst layering the small ensembles and solo instruments with their right hand, making it easy to try out melody lines over the main orchestra parts.
Several instances of the plug-in can be placed on separate DAW tracks, each loaded with either the full orchestrra, an orchestra section or a lead instrument with their full range, making Synchron Smart Orchestra extremely simple to use whilst conserving system resources.
Synchron Smart Orchestra is supported on PCs running Windows 10 or above, and Macs running macOS 10.14 and higher. VST, VST3, AU and AAX plug-in versions are available, and the instrument requires 20.2GB of free disk space.
