VSL Synchron Elite Strings?

Ben

Are you saying with enough work on DSS it can sound identical to Elite?
No, I don't think it is possible. As said, the sampling approach is too different. I think there are cases where you might choose one library over the other, or even layer both.
If you think about getting the Elite Strings, go for it, you can return it within 14 days if bought on our website. Decide for yourself if you want/need this one.

Patch replacement function ?????????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Like VI Pro has. I tried the text editor approach but VI-6 "Was Not Found".
What Am I doing wrong?
This should be a basic part of the Synchron Player functionality. NOT an afterthought with workarounds.
I, for one, am NOT a fan of dragging patches across the screen all day.
Cheers.

Ok , good idea. Is it possible to buy the Full and return the extended if I feel I dont need it ?

Would any of the library owners (or @Ben or @Stephen Limbaugh ) be willing to take a crack at this kind of exposed ostinato legato figure? The Whisper of the Forest demo uses detaché in the cello for something similar, but with the overlaid viola part and the rest of the orchestration it’s difficult to hear how it might sound when exposed.


Anyone got a good workflow for getting the kind of legato ostinatos found in a piece like this?

Can someone in few words please explain to me how they use Elite Strings in Divisi combined with Synchron Strings Pro?
Thanks.

If Dimension Strings is also a small string section (only slightly larger than Elite) what is the point of both? I'm relatively new to VSL so please pardon my ignorance...
Dimension Strings are extraordinary, especially in the relatively short notes, like detaché short, detaché long, spiccato, staccato, tremolos. To me they are often life-savers, since they can play difficult parts no other string library can play realistically. But their longs don't have a really beautiful tone, and moreover since the strings are dry, they do not resonate as well as the Synchron Strings. I solve this problems by layering them, or using them only in parts with fast tempo.

Thank you. Some time ago I purchased Dimension Strings I but never used it and it's a fairly inexpensive purchase to get the synchron'd version of it... which I've just done (along with Elite).

I did the opposite, first bought Standard but what you can do:
Buy Full...if you just need Standard return the Full and then
buy Standard again, i don't know if you can return a portion
plus you will have to do new Installation either way.

As promised, here the walkthrough of "Deborah's Theme":

It sounds very good and a step forward in the small chamber sized sample string department but still when you listen on small speakers like an IPhone or iPad ( which is always a good test for realism) you can still hear it sounds a little synthy ( a term that means a build up of samples which creates a thickness unlike the space of real players playing the same parts together together). I realise this is hyper critical. Compare the real thing below and there is still that missing magic but it could still be the closest sounding String library to the real thing yet .

I haven't read the whole topic, but can someone tell me if there is a huge difference in the mics available in standard version vs the mics in full version? Is it worth the extra money?

Just pulled the Plug on it.
(I understand “pulled the plug on” something to mean, “I rejected it,” or “I DIDN’T do it/choose it/accept it.” I think this is the opposite of what you mean? You DID buy it, yes? Do you mean “I pulled the trigger on it?”)

I was asking the same thing and hoping there would be some videos showing off the additional mic positions but then I did find a video that shows them. I don't have the full version but those ribbon mics sure sound good...
