The standard Vienna Symphonic Library Synchron Power Drums are recordings taken in an ambient room that feature hard-hitting, energetic drum grooves played simultaneously on three independent yet interacting drum kits. The Synchron Stage is Vienna's famous hall and provides the setting for this explosion of pounding energy that will take your music to the highest levels of intensity.

Use all three drums sets separately or mixed together for a wide palette of sounds. The Sonor Acyl Champion Vintage provides the sound of the 70s and features acrylic shells for a louder, punchier sound over wood shells, while the Tama Star's maple shells provide a dynamic, bright, rich, and open sound representing the modern drum sound. The Tama Superstar provides the sound of the 80s and features birch shells for a deep, warm, dry, and punchy sound, often associated with rock and disco.

The Vienna Synchron MIDI player includes drag and drop functionality with each drum set represented in a single MIDI file. Each drum set is featured on its own, as well as individually and features drums including the bass, snare, hi-hat, three toms, and cymbals, for the most diverse control of each drum element. There are several mix presets for a variety of starting points. In addition to a stereo mix, the Synchron Power Drums features a Decca Tree setup for left, right, and center mix options.
