Do somebody know if this Synchronized SE could be put in a new E-Licenser, so that I could use the OLD VSL SE in other computer with the old E-Licenser?

Pretty sure you can, since they're different licenses... but I'm not 100% sure.

Game music!
Converted a song I did in 2015 in Logic using VI Special Edition vol. 1 and changed all the instruments to Synchron-ized Special Edition vol. 1

Not bad I guess, it didn't take a long time to do since the placement is already assigned per patch.
The percussions do sound better, that's for sure. The brass are lighter than the original SE, probably because of the EQing they've added.

(Youtube crapped a bit on the audio quality but you get the idea...)

The one from 2015 that used VI Special Edition Vol. 1 and EW Hollywood Cellos is here:

I really love the Synchron Player. I find it so much easier to work with than VIPro2. :)
I think that for an "all in one" package, nothing beats SE with this upgrade. Awesome!

Edit: It is a bummer though that you HAVE to use VE for multi midi inputs. I wish you could assign a midi input per column of patches. Oh well..

We've been considering adding MIDI channel as a dimension controller - could make sense for the top dimension. Still some things to consider before we go there however :)

Oh, someone from VSL? May I ask a question? :)

Would it be possible to integrate the additional controllers like interval map and sequence map, as well as time stretch?

All of my presets are based on interval map in VI Pro, so this is the only reason why I'm not cross-grading to the SY-libraries and using the Synchron Player much. Overall, it's a good sample player.

Volume 1 and Volume 1 plus.
Volume 2 and Volume 2 plus.
For me, to upgrade to all four SYNCHRON-ized Special Editions, is a total of 134 Euros.
Seems like pretty good value to me.

Oh, someone who actually uses the interval and sequence map :) We have plans to add them as well, along with some solution for stretching. There are also other features in the pipeline, so I cannot give you any timeline.

That would be a very very very cool feature to have! Fingers crossed.

Hopefully definable ranges for CC controllers! This is a big one for me. All my expression maps for VI instruments use ranges for switching between articulations (cc 1-25 is stacc, 26-50 portato etc.) and I use the ranges a lot for playability too (velocity 1-20 portamento, higher than that: legato, etc.). Since the Synchron player only has those bendable curves, which are largely unpractical, you can't set anything up in a deliberate way.

I hope CC editing curves also have numeric values as well. Right now, if you want to match two patches, all you can do is eyeball the curves. There is no way to know if they are fairly close other than by whether the curves look similar or not.

where is the "sforzato" articulation in the Synchron-ized Strings? > by Orchestral String Multi-Convolution

EDIT: I found it by Dynamics! thx

So I’m new to Vienna libraries....and frankly am baffled by their marketing and website. If I own Special Edition Woodwinds Vol. I & II and the PLUS versions Vol I & II, can I benefit from this current “Synchron-ized” promotion?

yes, you will get each of them for about $35

Not sure as you only have the woodwind sections and not a complete Volume.
As far as I know the single sections of special edition will be retired soon (only the Volumes will be available thereafter) and the new synchronized variation does not have single sections but only volumes 1 to 4 and 1-Plus/2-Plus.
The 35$ mentioned above is for upgrading from Special Edition Vol. 1 to Synchronized Vol. 1.

Best is you log into your VSL account and have a look. The discounted prices are shown as soon as you are logged in.

I finally had some time to take a deeper look into the Synchronized Special Editions (all volumes).
I've created a mock-up of "The Godfather" soundtrack (I've used [youtube] as template, but I did not create an exact copy).

[AUDIOPLUS=https://vi-control.net/community/attachments/thegodfather-mp3.20702/][/AUDIOPLUS]

I used some plugins on the master bus (exciter, compressor, some additional late reflactions, saturation), but used the instruments mostly out of the box (except the choir: I EQ'ed them to sing uuh instead of aah).

I like the new intruments / articulations that were added, especially: Trumpet Bb (plays from the start), Solo Sopran (2:37), Harmonium (0:33), Synchron Percussion, Basson 2, Synchron Piano (5:39).

I'm happy if you give feedback on the mock-up, and if you have any questions about the SE versions I'll do my best to answer them :)
