Optimized for our new Vienna Synchron Player
Authentic placement in our Synchron Stage Vienna, one of the world's best sounding scoring stages
Small Ensembles – Great Sound
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, such as the 46-piece Synchron Strings I, by adding more nuances, colors and a wealth of variations to your orchestral palette.
For creating SYNCHRON-ized Chamber Strings, our sound editors went back to the raw, unprocessed sample data of the Chamber Strings I Collection. The original recordings were completely re-edited and re-mastered in order to achieve an all-new, modern chamber string sound that excels in terms of aesthetics, playability and realism, and that is optimized for use alongside the Synchron Series instruments. What’s more, we even added new velocity layers to the previously available legato articulations, such as “molto espressivo forte” variations.

Vienna Synchron Player
Being a product of our new Synchron Series, SYNCHRON-ized Chamber Strings comes with our new, free Vienna Synchron Player that incorporates the most powerful sample playback engine on the market, featuring unprecedented streaming performance while providing a new level of ease-of-use. You may play short notes, long notes with various attacks, legatos, scalable vibrato intensities and note repetitions intuitively just by moving one or two preconfigured controls, with a minimal need to switch articulations manually. With the Synchron Player’s innovative algorithms, the liveliness of these small string ensembles unfolds magically and effortlessly.
For SYNCHRON-ized Chamber Strings, our software developers added a specifically designed convolution reverb derived from Vienna MIR Pro to the Synchron Player, featuring the outstanding and unique ambience of the 540 m² (5,813 sq.ft.) main hall of Synchron Stage Vienna. The perfectly engineered reverberation and placement presets combine customized impulse responses with expertly crafted reverb settings for each group of the ensemble. By adding the ambience of Synchron Stage Vienna’s Stage A to the dry samples in real-time, SYNCHRON-ized Chamber Strings perfectly blend with any other product of our Synchron Series, resulting in a production-ready sound “out of the box”.

Synchron Stage Vienna's Stage A during a scoring session
When editing and processing the raw Silent Stage recordings for use within the Vienna Synchron Player, we paid utmost attention to achieving full compatibility with our larger, 46-piece Synchron Strings I. All articulations, and especially the velocities, were meticulously balanced and adjusted for perfect matching, making it easy to switch smoothly between different articulations or to move seamlessly through non-vibrato and vibrato layers. As a result, you may merge both string libraries or instantly change a large string arrangement to a smaller one (and vice versa) with SYNCHRON-ized Chamber Strings, without the need to adjust and tweak your settings.
SYNCHRON-ized Chamber Strings supports Native Instruments’ NKS format and is compatible with Komplete Kontrol keyboards and Maschine. Use the Light Guide to quickly identify key switches and play ranges of your instruments, browse and preview sounds, and quickly adapt them using pre-configured control knobs.
