Is that for the full version with the Atmos mic's?
The sound is nice, but it doesn't sound like a convincing performance.
I think I'll pass this one.
Nice track there Guy. Benny would be pleased.
The strings are very classical sounding to me.
I'd wait for the video walkthrough before I make my purchasing decision. Really looking forward to see the full potential of this library and the new Synchron player.
Exactly, I didn't have access to the Synchron Player, but probably soon.
Has anything been posted anywhere about the differences between the Synchron player and the old player?
Not yet I guess because they are working on the Synchron Player, it will be powerful tool.
Is there not a set up one can do to get the legato sounding correct, also is it not down to the composer to convince you, it is a new library, and I think its going to get some getting ones self familiar with.
Its almost like every note you expect to be a legato, so are you all legato freaks
Surprisingly, the detache doesn't sound like legato. What is this madness?
Anyway legatos aside, sorry if I missed it but @Christof and @Guy Bacos really nice demos, could you give us the size of the library,
Is it over 500gig
eheh, it's not like that. The fact is that for me (and for others too) the legato in the latest Dimension series was crazy good for very fast writing, but it was often impossible to achieve a simple melody line where you don't hear a gap or a small accent during the notes change.
I'm looking for the very basic legato, the only legato that oldest libraries could achieve. I want the possibility to choose a smooth legato where I just hear the new note as a natural continuation of the previous one (when is it possibile of course). In dimension the "excuse" was the small size (even if I don't agree, because that kind of legato is something that can be achieved by a single player..). What now?
@Christof and @Guy Bacos, no one wants to answer my two posts about extra mics? ah well. Probably not at liberty to answer
I hope this library does it for you, or I guess the search continues
Sorry maybe I missed your question, can you ask again please?
Around 500gig, yes, but make sure to use a SSD
I remember Paul stating on the VSL forums that the library is going to be around 200/500 gig (standard/full).
listen at 2:13 of Guy Bacos' demo. Now, that could be intentional, but if Synchron goes on with the same trend of Dimensions, these "bumbs" during notes changes are unavoidable. With a real violins section you could have a totally smooth melody in crescendo. And if it's intentional, I mean to have a sort of marcato on every note, this is far from a realistic result, imo.
But if you like it, it could be just a matter of taste. Fact remains that less and less people are interested in VSL libraries since years, especially for strings, and everybody loves the legato of CSS, @Christof included it seems
If ALL transitions in the demo sounded like that, you would have had a point. The one you mentioned sounded 100% intentional to me. /shrug
Can you put a link here to a simple performance of a legato that pleases you and that you consider does exactly what you're saying VSL Dimensions can't, and Synchron possibly doesn't do?
There were a few passages where if I had more time I would of phrased better, this was one of them, however, it's just a little less musical than it can be, on the leap I think more portamento would be better for example, but there's also no end.
