return the library? VSL allow to?There are better options out there in my opinion. The short articulations are good. Not spectacularly so, and certainly not unrivaled, but good. For the long articulations I did not care. The legato is problematic to my ears, and the library reacts to cc1 in a way that felt unnatural to me. Then there are too little articulations to choose from. Finally I didn't particularly like the sound signature either. In the end I returned the library.
I have it too (pre-ordered). Biggest waste of money sample wise ever.
I am still hoping they redo it/improve it in the hope that it doesn't kill the rest of the Synchron range off, but VSL seem totally blind to how bad it is. I feel like they have stubbornly dug their heels in and simply refuse to improve it/re-record some elements.
Their customer service and staff just will not admit what a failure it is and that will only serve to hurt them in the long run. Their customer service have always come across as quite condescending when contacting them about it as well.
Also, its ridiculously large and resource hungry yet sounds by far the worst of all the string libraries i own.
I will never be buying a VSL product ever again after my experience of Synchron Strings.
Do yourself a favour and spend your money on Cinematic Studio Strings, or quite frankly any other string library instead.
return the library? VSL allow to?
Sadly, I agree. I'm extremely unsatisfied with Synchron Strings. No more VSL pre-orders for me.
Another down side is the whole wide world is perhaps against VSL and will never get over it so the negativity will remain in your mind and suck you in a very dark hole.
What I would say is go for the 30 trial but you will need to figure the strings out if you cant its nether hear nor there,
Their dongle system is killing them. I even have a vsl dongle, but its still in the box. I would have bought several vsl products by now....but having to repay a portion of the licence if something happens to the dongle is utter BS. Their policy is retarded and thankfully no other big VI company does that. Not to mention many of their instruments are overpriced.
Well there you have it, as I said the whole world is against VSL you don't need to look far on this forum, but I guess its best to not go a stray from the thread and turn it into a hate VSL developer thread
I believe Synchron Strings is the matter in hand :
Thats not fair. I would like to own some vsl products.....even if they are a bit expensive. Im not against them. Im against their paranoia policy.
As for the synchron series....i agree with others here....it doesnt sound great...just my opinion.
That's true. I use their libraries nearly every day. Great stuff. The only thing I don't like is the sound of Synchron Strings. To me it sounds lifeless and in opposite to their other string libraries it's nearly impossible to make convincing agile melodic phrases with that legato.They have outstanding librarys, there software is light years ahead of the rest and its still staggering how they manage to get such a low CPU, memory foot print, have not seen this in any other developer, there products are rock solid stable...
