This template was designed for the use with virtual instruments by Vienna Symphonic Library. In order for it to work as intended, licenses and installations of the following libraries are required.
The Synchron Prime Edition is a comprehensive selection of orchestral instruments recorded at the renowned Synchron Stage Vienna.
There is a free 30-day trial available for this library.
To include a piano in the template, we used the Soft Imperial, a free piano instrument available for Synchron Player.
This library is available for free at vsl.co.at.
The first step of course is to download the Synchron Prime template for Ableton Live with the performances and presets. Click the button below to start the download:
The downloaded file is compressed as a zip-archive. Unpack the archive and save its contents to a safe place to use them in the next steps.
Open Divisimate and navigate to the “Perform” Tab. Open the menu on the upper left and click on “Manage”.
In the Performance Manager you can now import a performance including all of its presets. Click on “Import…” at the bottom right, navigate to the folder where you saved the downloaded files and select the first downloaded *.dpfe file.
Repeat this process for any other Performances that you wish to use in Divisimate.
Now you can load your Performance of choice and use all included presets in Divisimate.
In the download there is also a folder named “Divsimate Plugin Presets”, two with presets for the Trigger plugin.
Open Divisimate and in the preset menu click “Manage” (Cmd+M / Ctrl+M). This will open up the folder containing all presets and user settings for Divisimate. Navigate to the plugins folder, create a subfolder “Trigger”, and within that a subfolder “Presets”. If you previously saved Trigger presets yourself, this folder will already exist.
Copy the content’s of the downloaded folder in this directory. After this you will be able access the presets in the preset menu of the trigger plugin.
Make sure that Divisimate is open. Open the file Synchron Prime Template.als with Ableton Live – and that should be all you need to do.
You can customize the template to your liking and adjust the balance and mix. There is a reverb bus that has an instance of an Ableton Live stock reverb on it. Feel free to replace this with your own reverb of choice.
Now make sure, that all the tracks are record enabled, load a preset from one of the dedicated Performances and start playing!
This template is only a starting point for your journey with Divisimate and the Synchron Prime Edition.
