ILIO announces Vienna MIR Pro 24 + 20% off Vienna MIR RoomPacks

ILIO has announced Vienna MIR Pro 24, a special version of Vienna MIR PRO with a maximum of 24 instruments and ensembles that can be placed on its virtual stages. Apart from this limitation, Vienna MIR PRO 24 includes the full set of features and options of Vienna MIR PRO, at half the price.

Vienna MIR Pro 24

Vienna MIR PRO 24 is a network-capable mixing solution for Mac and PC, based on Multi Impulse Response convolution. Its direct connection with Vienna Ensemble PRO 5 allows for a seamless integration with any audio production environment. Each audio signal can be routed into Vienna MIR PRO 24 and delivered in stereo, or in various surround formats on up to 8 output channels after processing.

Vienna MIR PRO 24 merges all parts of the creative process – composition, orchestration and mixing – into a single intuitive workflow. The software offers a holistic approach to the spatial modeling of virtual orchestras, allowing the user to interact with the players more like a conductor than an engineer. Its innovative multi-parameter Control Icon replaces conventional faders and pan pots and offers concise control for positioning each instrument on the virtual stage, changing its volume and stereo width, and even rotating it within a fluid three-dimensional environment.

Vienna MIR PRO 24 combines specific directional frequency profiles with reflection information from every instrument, assembling all of the acoustic interactions into an accurate recreation of musicians playing their instruments in place and in space. Vienna MIR PRO 24 is much more than just “a multi-sample” of a hall – and this is where it far surpasses any other convolution reverb available on the market. Vienna MIR PRO 24 is multi-source, multi-directional, multi-positional, and multi-format.

Vienna MIR PRO 24 comes with 11,000 impulse responses from four halls in the famous Vienna Konzerthaus, plus its grand foyer. Further RoomPacks offering recording studios, sound stages (e.g., Teldex Berlin), and churches are available as optional downloads.

Vienna Symphonic Library has released Vienna Instruments PRO 2, a major update of the software sample player for Windows and Mac.

New features include the powerful APP sequencer, auto humanization, enveloped time stretching, automatic cell naming, enabling/disabling of cells and an option to adjust the sample preload buffer size.

Changes in Vienna Instruments PRO 2

  • APP Sequencer – The internal Auto-Playback and Pattern Sequencer offers a vast variety of orchestral patterns and voicings. Trigger rhythmic patterns, runs and accompanying arrangements of the whole orchestra at the touch of a single key!
  • New Presets and Matrices – Take advantage of the APP Sequencer and load hundreds of preconfigured chords, phrases and patterns.
  • Enabling/Disabling of Cells – Load huge presets with hundreds of articulations in no time, and without taxing your RAM. Specific articulations get loaded only when you “enable” their cells with a simple double-click. Disable cells to clear samples from RAM, while keeping all patch settings intact.
  • Auto Cell Naming – Easily identify all loaded articulations by their cell names.
  • Auto Humanization – Assign appropriate performance accuracy settings to all of your loaded articulations at once. 
  • Enveloped Time Stretching – Easily determine which part of an articulation should be manipulated and adjust the speed of a portamento or the attack of a staccato.
  • SSD ready – Load 10 times more samples into your RAM, 10 times faster, by reducing the sample preload buffer size when using Solid State Drives.
  • Scale Editor – Change the pitch of specific notes of your scales to customize your microtunings.
  • Extended Instrument Ranges – Extend the range of each articulation up to two whole tones (both in the high and low register) by simply grabbing the handles on the virtual keyboard.
