Vienna Symphonic Orchestra updates Vienna MIR to v1.0 r1563

Vienna Symphonic Library Vienna MIR

Vienna Symphonic Orchestra has released version 1.0 r1563 of Vienna MIR, 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 v1.0 r1563

  • Features
    • An extension of the Instrument Directivity Filters allows their usage for dry sound as well. This can be enabled for every instrument by the option “Use Directivity Profile for Dry Signal” at the Edit dialog of an instrument. If this option is enabled, the dry signal will be filtered with the Directivity Filter of the direction that points toward the current microphone position. In case of instruments with a very directional radiation pattern (e.g. trumpets), this effect may be very intense. While rotating an instrument artifacts may occur; a solution for this is already in progress.
  • Bug fixes
    • Added a check for the Windows color depth which is performed during start of Vienna MIR; in case of an insufficient value Vienna MIR will not start and show an adequate warning.
    • Revision of path display and selection at the Preferences dialog.
    • Added a check for the soundcard buffer size; Vienna MIR shows a warning in case of inadequate buffer sizes (fixed crashes which happened directly after starting Vienna MIR).
    • Fixed casual deactivation of the first instrument’s mute settings.

Time+Space has announced it is now shipping Vienna Suite, the first and only boxed fully 64-bit compatible plug-in suite.

Vienna Suite includes nine advanced, yet easy to use plug-ins for mixing and mastering. For optimum precision, they offer full 64-bit audio processing on all major 64-bit and 32-bit host platforms. Supporting the formats AU (Mac OS X), VST (OS X, Win), and RTAS (OS X), Vienna Suite is the ideal solution for anyone who wants to shape a mix using high-end audio tools.

Though it integrates beautifully with any host program or DAW, not just for users of Vienna Ensemble and Vienna Instruments, Vienna users will be happy to take advantage of over 500 included expert presets tailor-made for Vienna Instruments. Be sure to watch the Video Tutorials that explain the features and innovations of all plug-ins in detail.

Vienna Suite features

  • Convolution Reverb
    • Full 64-bit “True Stereo” 4 channel processing of impulse responses
    • Includes impulse responses of 5 halls of the Vienna Konzerthaus, 3 ORF sound stages, and selected acoustic spaces by Inspired Acoustics and Numerical Sound.
    • Unique impulse response decorrelation algorithm allows for rich, lush and spacious atmospheres
    • Advanced impulse response manipulation

Vienna Symphonic Library releases Vienna MIR

Vienna Symphonic Library Vienna MIR

Vienna Symphonic Library has announced the release of Vienna MIR, 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.

In traditional production, the mixing console is a barrier between the music creator and the music environment. A skilled engineer can combine tracks and add reverb to create sonic results that are somewhere between real and surreal. But that’s not the most musical way to work.

Rather than mixing from the outside in, a Vienna MIR project starts with each individual instrument or ensemble, taking into account how sound emanates from its body, in what direction, and in relation to its position in the hall. Use the MIR Control Icon to move and rotate instruments freely on the concert stage, and change their volume and stereo width – not with two-dimensional faders and pan pots, but within a fluid three-dimensional environment. Vienna MIR combines directional and reflectional information from every instrument, assembling all of the acoustic interactions into an accurate and satisfying recreation of musicians playing their instruments in place and in space. Short of recording an orchestra on site, what could be more musical?

Vienna MIR features

  • Includes 5 halls of the Vienna Konzerthaus with a total of over 11,000 (!) impulse responses. More acoustic spaces will soon be offered as additional download products.
  • Graphic user interface depicting 3D renderings of the selected room (venue maps) with scroll wheel zooming.
  • Intuitive multi-parameter Control Icon for quick interaction with instruments and visual feedback – and direct access to the connected Vienna Instrument.
  • Microphone Position Offset allowing for movement of virtual microphones in the room.
  • GUI options such as Instrument Grouping, Hide Icon, Instrument Focus.
  • Room EQ and Master EQ.
  • Pre-listening feature before selecting a room.
  • Character Presets (such as ‘Air’, ‘Silk’, ‘Bite’, ‘Distant’, ‘Warm’) for quick timbral changes, available for most Vienna Instruments.
  • Adjustable Room Tone (natural noise floor).

Vienna MIR is available as a standalone application for Vista/Windows 7 64-bit systems only. It runs exclusively with Vienna Instruments. The Vienna MIR license is 795 EUR.

Vienna Symphonic Library releases Vienna Imperial

VSL Vienna Imperial - basic view

Vienna Symphonic Library has released Vienna Imperial, a virtual grand piano for Windows and Mac.

The venerable Bösendorfer Imperial 290-755 that our team hosted at the Silent Stage for two months was equipped with the famed piano manufacturer’s CEUS technology, which allowed for the most precise and by far most extensive piano sample recordings ever conducted in the history of music technology. 1,200 recorded samples per key represent a magnitude of sampling detail that has been unthinkable up to now.

The innovative implementation of meticulously recorded pedal-up and pedal-down notes in up to 100 velocities, comprehensive sympathetic resonances, and multiple release samples make the Vienna Imperial quite honestly the most realistic sampled piano ever created.

Vienna Imperial features

  • Up to 100 velocities per key, 1,200 recorded samples per key.
  • Audience, player, and close microphone recording positions.
  • Powerful proprietary piano engine.
  • Multiple release samples for different note lengths (supports authentic staccato/staccatissimo performances).
  • Repetition samples for pedal-sustained notes.
  • Sympathetic resonances for sustain pedal up and down positions.
  • Adjustable pedal noises.
  • Easy to use interface with unique velocity histogram.
  • Convolution reverb featuring three halls of the famous Vienna Konzerthaus.
  • Equalizer.
  • Dynamic range control.
  • Lossless sample compression for using less hard disk space.
  • RAM Optimizer to unload unused samples out of RAM.
  • 24-bit/44.1kHz, stereo.

Vienna Imperial is available for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS) at a price of $875 USD. A purchase also entitles you to download the free Vienna Ensemble 2 mixing and host software.
