    Get ready to go big and bold with our big "tutti" orchestra. Articulations include staccatos, sustains, marcatos, swells and runs – just what you need to create earth-shattering accents, awe-inspiring “braaahhms” and nerve-wracking tension cues.
    This overtone flute from central Slovakia is originally played by shepherds. This mystical instrument brings new soundscapes to your music, from soft meditative tones to energetic outbursts.
    Indulge in the gentle sounds and colors of a magnificent Bösendorfer Imperial. Rather than being dull or muffled, the clear and transparent tones of this beautiful grand piano lend themselves well to a lot of styles.
    This heavenly string ensemble is simply beautiful, and beautifully simple to use. The acclaimed string players of the Synchron Stage Orchestra are creating a soft and ethereal ensemble sound that is so homogenous and well balanced that this may well be one of your favorite string patches ever
    [​IMG]

    There’s a special quality to fast scales performed by an ensemble of string players. To increase liveliness and authenticity in your tracks, it may be better in some cases to use pre-recorded runs than creating a string run out of single notes. That’s why we recorded octave runs performed by an ensemble of 14 violin players in all scales and modes.

    [​IMG]
    A wide variety of angelic sounding harp glissandos are perfectly organized in the Synchron Player’s patch structure. They are easily accessible in all 12 major and minor scales, played upwards and downwards, as well as in several variations.

    Free but you need an iLok account to be able to use it. System requirements. Just for the info. ;)

    Dear @SineWave
    This thread are only for ppl who accept the fact they need an iLok account and not for iLok--haters :yes:
    You´ll prolly get a lot of likes from iLok-haters for this comment but frankly.... I guess most ppl can figure out what they need to accept before they have access to these libraries?!?

    Have a nice weekend

    if it runs offline i might find it okay. Does it run Offline?

    You mean SF LABS? It definitely works offline. You have to "install" it with their SW though, if that's what you mean..

    iLok doesn't need to be online after activating the product.
    Library itself needs to be installed from Vienna Assistant, no offline installation packages.
    Their sample player works offline.

    LABS worked offline too last I tried.

    Hmm i would like to use another computer to download the Libraries, save offline auth files and then install fully offline. cant find anything on the VSL page about that.

    Not possible, goodbye VSL.

    I ask them, if i can download files with another computer+auth and then install them on the 2nd offline computer (i asked two times), it is not possible.

    of course download the LABS free libs with the downloader and then going offline works, that not what i need.

    Yeah, but that's not the point. You're still forced to connect to a server every time you want to active the software on a new OS. When people are talking about offline, they're really talking about portable offline INSTALLERS.

    So is your PC in a place where it can't get onto the internet or is it because you don't want it to connect at all?

    @ArticStorm I totally understand the frustration, believe me.

    The problem is, only a small part of major library/instrument devs do not force you to use some kind of "download manager". The difference is if that that software either a)installs only b)also has to run in background etc. - the second being unacceptable for me..

    I use a lot of NI and SF and I have to swallow it - forced to use their "installers" (SF is imo the least intrusive). I tried Arturia Augmented Strings (free) and found out I can't uninstall their "manager" if I want to run the instr. I liked it, I'd buy it but that's a no go.

    And to get (sort of) back on topic, I just watched the VSL "How To" video and there is a dl/intall sw, again - Vienna Assistant. TBH, these get on my nerves more than the iLok acc. They really want my comp bloated to the MAX?!

    Does anyone know how this Vienna Assistant work?
    Does it have to remain installed on the sys? Does it have to run when using VSL instruments?

    1: I dont think so..... but why uninstall?.... There could be more freebies comming?
    2: You dont need to run it while you´re using VSL instruments.

    When I saw the title my eyes popped out of their sockets in sheer delight, until I saw the prerequisites *face-palm*

    Ugh - iCok plus additional downloaders and online installers... wtf?!
    Here's hoping they'll appear on the sister site!!!

    1: dont bother if you cant accept the prerequisites.
    2: might be but I guess you´ll be more interested in the full/pro libs than the free ones :yes:

    An interesting find, yes - & thank you for the share - but I will, indeed, spare myself the grief of all the prerequisites! :')
    I do like to find nice little freebies like this, though and would very much like to try them out should they happen to appear anywhere in a more user-friendly form.

    No, I've never bought anything that is iLok protected
    I pay for the property, the owner is me, but I feel that I don't really own the software since I have to ask someone for permission to use it. I feel really unconfortable having to ask the dev for the favor at every launch.
    Also, I want to be free to use my app even in an offline situation, this occurrence is more frequent than you think: unconnected recording studio, or plane or boat. In these cases, any apps / plugins that need dev's approval will fail.
    At that point, I consider this to be a software malfunction and I'm ready to ask for a refund
