MIRx Konzerthaus Grosser Saal reverb mixing extension in Vienna Instruments PRO.
Based on the company’s revolutionary MIR (Multi Impulse Response) convolution technology users can integrate the stunning acoustics of renowned concert halls and sound stages directly into Vienna Instruments PRO – at great prices.

High-end Convolution Reverb from Vienna MIR PRO
Using pre-configured Multi Impulse Responses from the company’s highly acclaimed software Vienna MIR PRO and its RoomPacks, each instrument or ensemble loaded in Vienna Instruments PRO will find its perfect position on stage at the touch of a button. Users may select from three renowned venues that are available separately or as a bundle. While the Vienna Konzerthaus – Grosser Saal (Great Hall) with a total area of 9,900 square feet (920 m²) is the perfect venue for large symphonic and choral works, the smaller Mozartsaal (4,680 square feet/435 m²) offers an ideal setting for all types of chamber music, from string quartets to chamber orchestras. The famed Teldex Scoring Stage in Berlin has been used for recording purposes since the 1950s. With its 4,900 square feet (455 m²) hall it is still one of the largest private recording studios to achieve international standards. Hundreds of MIRx presets have been created by MIR project manager and esteemed audio engineer Dietmar “Dietz” Tinhof for specific instrumentations and stage settings, allowing for a perfectly balanced orchestral sound at any time. Users will get plenty of inspiration from new video tutorials and demo projects that are available for download at the company’s website.
The Vienna MIRx Reverb Mixing Extensions are available to purchase for the introductory price of 69 EUR each (regular 79 EUR), the MIRx Bundle is 175 EUR (regular 195 EUR). Upgrade paths from MIRx venues to Vienna MIR RoomPacks are available.
Coinciding with the release of the MIRx products the Vienna Symphonic Library is running a special offer for Vienna Instruments PRO during the month of August.
