Vienna Symphonic Library

The innovative, research-driven music software and sample library developer based in Vienna, Austria, is constantly striving to improve on the concept of virtual orchestral music production with special regard to authenticity and ease of use. Up to now, more than 1.5 million samples have been recorded and published in several Vienna Instruments collections.

Vienna Ensemble PRO

Vienna Ensemble PRO is the first MIDI and audio LAN solution that works universally on Macs and PCs, hosting Vienna Instruments as well as third-party VST (PC) and AU (Mac) instruments and effect plug-ins. Use it as a host on the same computer as your sequencer or as a master-slave solution with multiple Macs and PCs. You can easily route the audio streams of a whole arsenal of slave computers back to your main machine. Vienna Ensemble PRO supports Steinberg’s VST3 technology and with the 64-bit version you can now load as many samples as your RAM will hold. EPIC ORCHESTRA, a customized and powerful free 9 GB orchestra sample pack with a selection of Vienna’s most popular instruments is included! If you already have a USB eLicenser such as the Steinberg Key, you can download and test-drive the software for free right away. AU/VST/VST3/AAX Native/RTAS (plug-in or stand-alone).

Vienna MIR PRO

Vienna MIR PRO is the first ever whole-space mixing solution for Mac and PC, based on Multi Impulse Response (MIR) convolution technology. It offers an entirely new spatial concept, allowing the user to interact with the players more like a conductor than an engineer. Vienna Instruments, 3rd party VST instruments and even external audio signals can be placed on Vienna MIR PRO’s virtual stages – 5 halls of the renowned Vienna Konzerthaus with a total of over 11,000 (!) impulse responses are already included, more acoustic spaces are available as optional RoomPacks. The software comes as a universal AU/VST/AAX Native/RTAS plug-in for the sequencer or DAW of your choice and can be seamlessly integrated in the host software Vienna Ensemble PRO 5, merging all parts of the creative process into a single intuitive workflow. Vienna MIR PRO 24 is a special version with a maximum of 24 instrument icons that can be placed on its virtual stages.If you already have a USB eLicenser such as the Steinberg Key, you can download and test-drive the software for free right away.

Vienna Instruments Collections

The Vienna Instruments Collections are the heart of a comprehensive and individually expandable orchestral library. Most of the Collections consist of a Standard and Extended Library and come with the proprietary, intelligent Vienna Instruments software player. Its award-winning “Performance Detection” feature switches automatically between various samples and articulations, depending on your playing: fast or slow, legato, staccato or a trill, for instance. This results in unique authenticity and an intuitive, musical workflow. All Vienna Instruments Collections can be used stand-alone or as VST, AU, AAX Native or RTAS plug-ins in a sequencer or notation software such as Cubase or Nuendo.
