VSL Vienna MIR RoomPack 3, Mystic Spaces for Vienna Instruments

Vienna MIR RoomPack 3

Vienna Symphonic Library has released Vienna MIR RoomPack 3, a collection of “Mystic Spaces” impulse responses for Vienna Instruments.

For more than a century the Steinhofkirche with its incomparable acoustic properties has been a truly magical attraction for musicians and music enthusiasts. It is still used regularly for concerts today.

Built at the beginning of the 20th century in today’s Socio-medical Center at Baumgartner Höhe, the church is one of Vienna’s famous Jugendstil (Art Nouveau) landmarks. It sits in the so-called “White City” that is comprised of 61 buildings and was, in its day, the largest and most modern psychiatric institution of its kind.

For those who are mainly interested in the acoustic peculiarities of this unique church, it may be regarded simply as the “Viennese Taj Mahal”. Ten seconds of long*, dense, crystal-clear reverb engulf the visitor after entering the nave – an experience that transports believers and musicians alike to other spheres.

For Vienna MIR the Steinhofkirche’s nave was recorded from three microphone positions: Mic 1 is positioned near the altar, Mic 2 in the middle of the nave under the cupola, and Mic 3 near the main entrance next to the organ gallery. All in all, over 2,200 IRs were gathered to virtually recreate the acoustics of this building.

Added to this are a number of so-called HotSpots – two positions in the left and right side aisles each, one position in the rear at the main entrance, and the entire balcony of the organ gallery. This means that basically the Steinhofkriche can be used in Vienna MIR from each side of the main microphones, which allows you to put a real surround ensemble into place! Apart from that, the gilded pulpit left of the altar (marked by a red velvet parapet) is especially noteworthy. Here, too, instruments can be placed and freely rotated – the perfect place for a “preaching” soloist.

The Vienna MIR RoomPack 3 is available to purchase for 125 EUR.

Vienna Symphonic Library updates Vienna MIR to v1.1-1719

Vienna Symphonic Library Vienna MIR

Vienna Symphonic Library has released version 1.1-1719 of Vienna MIR, a software solution incorporating a complete reverberation and mixing stage.

Conduct your music. Conduct your mix. Vienna MIR is the first ever whole-space mixing solution that puts real-world depth and dimension into the palm of your hand. After several years of research and development, our groundbreaking mixing and reverberation host, based on Multi-Impulse Response convolution, renders space as the unifying presence that merges every single instrument into one authentic sound experience.

Changes in Vienna MIR to v1.1-1719

  • Group Editor: set focus to group of currently selected instrument.
  • Add Instrument dialog: the dialog suggests a General Purpose instrument type when using 3rdparty VSTis.
  • Additional instrument type for “Vienna Choir”.
  • Huge update of MIR project handling code and underlying libraries to fix random crashes.
  • Added error message for users trying to load a not-existing project from recent-projects list.
  • Additional error message to inform users about possibly missing .vmi-files when a project cannot be loaded.
  • Group Editor: added missing update of group enumeration after removing a group.
  • Group Editor: fixed synchronization of group info after removing a group.
  • VST Plug-ins: loading presets for plug-ins without GUI failed.
  • Additional check to fix randomly frozen MIR icon meter.
  • Prevent crashes when an output format gets changed to a setup with too many channels.
  • Added a check to prevent multiple instances of MIR running at the same time.
  • Fixed VSTi window behavior, size of instrument window could not be changed (neither by the user nor the plugin, e.g., in Kontakt).
  • Fixed size of output meter labels (for values between -0 and -10, “-” was not visible).
  • Group editor showed old instrument entries after loading a new project.
  • Toggling the roomtone button caused unnecessary impulse response updates.
  • Additional checks to prevent denormalization problems with instruments sending very low output signals.

Vienna MIR is available as a standalone application PC (Vista/Windows 7 64-bit systems only), priced at 795 EUR.
