Overview

This is a reduced price crossgrade of Vienna Instruments SYNCHRON-ized Elements for registered users of the VI Elements Standard Library. For the SYNCHRON-ized version of Elements, VI expands on the unique breadth of instruments from the acclaimed their Elements. They do this by not only by adding more extraordinary instruments, but by also creating a host of other-worldly sonic effects using the Synchron Player’s extensive plug-in and routing options. The sound sources of Vienna Instruments SYNCHRON-ized Elements are comprised of water (Waterphones), metal (singing bowls, crotales, steel rails, tam-tams), stone (lithophones), and glass (glass harmonica, verrophone, bottles). With a variety of included mixer presets, each instrument can be placed at nine different positions in the main hall of Synchron Stage Vienna for a perfect, out-of-the-box sound. New instruments in include a second lithophone, another waterphone, several tam-tams, rails, thunder sheets, crotales, ocean drums and many more.

Water Instruments

The Waterphone was invented by Richard Waters in 1967, inspired by the African kalimba, the nail violin and the Tibetan water drum. The instrument consists of a closed water-filled body of stainless steel or bronze and a hollow-cylindrical neck. Metal rods of different lengths are attached vertically around the neck and are usually scraped with a bow. The sound can be modified by pivoting the water-filled body. Like the triangle and the piccolo, the Waterphone’s high-frequency sound can be heard even when the entire orchestra is playing. The Bass Waterphone is a particularly large model with a diameter of 35 cm (13 ¾ ").

Glass Instruments

The glass harmonica was widely popular during Mozart's time. Hemispherical glass bowls rotate around a horizontal axis driven by a pedal. By putting wet fingers on the bowls as they turn they excite the glass into lovely ethereal tones. The verrophone consists of chromatic glass tubes arranged vertically like the resonator tubes of mallet instruments. The glass tubes are rubbed with moistened fingers to create its unique sound. The musical glasses are filled with varying amounts of water and rubbed with moistened fingers, too, but their sound is much more delicate and shimmering compared to the verrophone. The glass instruments are rounded out by bottles that are blown with different techniques, including flutter tongue.

Stone Instruments

The sounding stone bars of the lithophone are made of basalt, granite, marble and other minerals. Lithophones were first introduced to the orchestra by Carl Orff (1895–1982) in his Greek drama “Antigone.” The Grand Lithophone is a unique instrument that looks like a marimba and has a tonal range of almost five octaves. Due to the resonance tubes, the tonal possibilities range from extremely soft, full and dark tones to a hard and bright timbre.

Metal Instruments

The metal category includes steel rails struck with a steel hammer, thunder sheets in various sizes and playing techniques, crotales and a set of Japanese singing bowls. The series of tam-tams includes instruments with different diameters, ranging from 85 cm to the 200 cm XXL tam-tam. The latter was struck with metal rods, cardboard and jigsaw blades, hit and rubbed with chains, and manhandled with fly swatters, an egg cutter, and even a massaging rod.

The collection is rounded off by a series of exotic percussion instruments such as ocean drums, spring drums, cuícas, waldteufel as well as bull roarer and lion’s roar.
