Vienna Synchron Player & Presonus Studio One | Sound Variations

This is a dream come true for many of us!

Finally, there’s a sequencer that communicates efficiently with our Synchron Player, boosting your creative output with a simple interface! We’re stoked about the collaboration with the Presonus Studio One Team, and it’s incredible to see how convenient a simple feature is when you’re managing all the articulations you find with our products!

Do you remember the first time you used your key to remotely open your car? This feels similar…
You never know how much you missed a feature until it’s finally there: Welcome SOUND VARIATIONS, available now with Presonus Studio One 5.2!

We have prepared a few demo projects for Studio One 5.2, get them here : https://www.vsl.co.at/MyVSL/Tutorials_Templates

My two favorite companies collaborating, I'm more of a VI user but it sure makes Synchron libraries interesting :)

This is crazy... I don't want to change my DAW and buy more libraries !! Temptations, temptations every where !
If I'm not mistaken there is a Studio One demo version available, I would suggest to check it out.
(and there might be a discount code for Studio One in our newsletter as well. Might be worth checking out ;) )

Btw, I've prepared a macro toolbar compatible with the strings-, woodwinds-, and brass-libraries from our SYNCHRON-ized Special Editions. This will add instant access to most articulations of the mentioned instrument groups, and you can also access these macros in the Studio One app (they are named "SYSE-00-Articulation Name", so you can quickly find them in the macro-manager).

Let me know if you would like to see more customized articulation macro toolbars for our other Synchron libraries :)

How to import the macro page:
1) Open the instrument/MIDI editor
2) Click on the Macro Toolbar button

I just downloaded the BBO freebie to try this and it is stunning synergy between the apps, I am floored! This will be a major factor when choosing libraries moving forward. Fantastic work Presonus and VSL!
I also love the possibilities to create your own articulation combinations and/or structure, and Studio One will automagically be aware of these and Ican use them right aware.
You need harsher attacks? Simply stack the articulation with one of the shorts or sfz articulation, give it a nice name, and have fun using it.
Or create a copy of an articulation and tweak the copy in the EDIT tab - you still have access to both variants right away.

And because it is so easy and quick to do you don't hesitate to tweak the presets and articulation - opening up so much potential and inspire you in the process, at least this was my experience during testing.

Are these based on names of the arts? If so, could it apply to Synchron Strings Pro or would a custom toolbar be needed for that?
Yes, it's based on the names (you can right clicl a button and select "Edit macro", then double click onto "Find and apply" to see what articulation name is choosen).
It should work for some of the Synchron Strings Pro articulations that have the same name.
I've encountered the issue that some articulations can't be selected via the Find and apply macro because the slots have the exact same name, but different paths, but we are already working on a solution for this.

For these articulations you can either use the right click menu, or create a button and assign the "Find and Apply" function to it. Clicking on the button will open a popup where you can type the name of the articulation and navigate the results by using the up/down arrows on your keyboard. Confirm with the enter-key.

Ah yes! Wow hadn’t thought about that. Amazing! This usually takes so much planning and setup when using typical key switch workflows. Love it.

@Ben,

A video tutorial showing how VSL Synchron Libraries nicely integrate with S1Pro 5.2 Sound Variations Key-switching feature would be super helpful. Maybe VSL can make a video showing it in action, and how best to use it.

Thanks.
