VSL Special Edition Vol 3 and 4

Vienna Symphonic Library has announced the release of two new collections for the Vienna Special Editions, its entry-level orchestra packages.

The Vienna Special Editions offer a large-scale orchestra and more at your fingertips, in resource-saving, affordable packages.

New Vienna Special Edition libraries

  • Special Edition Vol 3 (“Appassionata & Muted Strings”) – Apart from the lush and cinematic Appassionata Strings with a wide variety of playing techniques in normal and muted variations, the Special Edition Volume 3 focuses on “con sordino“ (muted) recordings of the Solo Strings and Chamber Strings. Additionally, you’ll find an alternative Harp to the one included in the Special Edition Volume 1. All instruments include Vienna Symphonic Library’s famed Legato Performances – real note transitions, smoothly and authentically performed by the algorithms of the Vienna Instruments software player.
  • Special Edition Vol 4 (“Special Winds & Choir”) features 15 woodwind and brass instruments that are not included in the Special Edition Volumes 1–3, such as the “Fanfare Trumpets” (a powerful ensemble of 6 trumpets), bass flute and contrabass clarinet. What’s more, the most important articulations of our Vienna Choir are included, covering the full range of the human voice with soprano, alto, tenor and bass ensembles. Add another dimension and a very human touch to your music, especially to your orchestral scores!

The new Special Edition collections are available to purchase at the introductory price of 325 EUR (Vol 3) and 245 EUR through June 15, 2012.

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.

PreSonus announces QMix – Monitor Mix Control via iPhone/iPod touch

Related: , , , , , , , Posted in news on Jan 19, 2012 - comment 0 comments

PreSonus has announced QMix, offering Monitor Mix Control via iPhone/iPod touch.

Up to 10 musicians can simultaneously control their StudioLive monitor mixes using an iPhone or iPod touch and PreSonus’ free QMix app. QMix builds on PreSonus’ original Virtual StudioLive (VSL), which provides bidirectional computer control of PreSonus StudioLive -series mixers via FireWire. Next came StudioLive Remote for iPad, which provides wireless control of StudioLive mixers.

PreSonus QMix

QMix works a lot like SL Remote: One or more iPhones network wirelessly with a Mac or PC, enabling QMix to remote-control Virtual StudioLive, which in turn controls one or more FireWire-connected StudioLive mixers. When each iPhone connects to the new network, its copy of QMix will discover all StudioLive mixers on the network. In this way, each musician can quickly and easily create an aux mix that includes all mixer channels.

Of course, you don’t want band mates messing with each other’s monitors — and the engineer doesn’t want to referee a band fight. So QMix lets the engineer set permissions so that each iPhone on the network only controls a specified mix. It’s our way of encouraging peace on-stage and goodwill to band mates.

Portrait view presents the Wheel of Me, which lets you select multiple “Me” channels and turn them all up in your monitor at the same time, while controlling the relative balance between you and the rest of the band. Landscape view provides control of the aux-mix send level and pan position (for linked auxes) for each channel and aux. This is where you set up your monitor mix.

QMix features

  • Provides wireless control over aux mixes in Virtual StudioLive and hence, over aux mixes in any StudioLive-series digital mixer.
  • Portrait view shows Wheel of Me, where you can select multiple “Me” channels and control their levels simultaneously.
  • Landscape view provides control of all aux-send levels and panning (for linked auxes).
  • Aux mixes can be named (up to 10 characters).
  • Tap tempo for delay effects.
  • Control the auxes on any StudioLive mixer on the wireless network from one iPhone or iPod touch.
  • Multiple iPhones and iPod touches can control the same StudioLive.
  • Set permissions in VSL so each iPhone and iPod touch can control only one specific aux mix.

QMix will be a free download from the Apple App Store and is expected to be available in January 2012.

VSL Vienna Instruments PRO 2

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.

Vienna Instruments PRO 2 is available to purchase for the introductory price of EUR 125 through December 15, 2011 (regular 145 EUR). Registered users of Vienna Instruments PRO may download the new version from the Vienna Symphonic Library website, free of charge.

Vienna Symphonic Library announces Vienna Dimension Brass

Vienna Symphonic Library Vienna Dimension Brass

Vienna Symphonic Library has announced Vienna Dimension Brass, a new sample library featuring brass instruments.

Vienna Dimension Brass gives an entirely new meaning to the term multi-samples. These instruments were recorded in a very unique way at Vienna’s famed Silent Stage. While every note was played by a well-rehearsed ensemble of four brass players, each instrument was recorded separately, which allows you to access each voice individually. Still, they sound like an ensemble and not like four soloists, whether playing in unison, divisi, or even in four-part harmony.

Vienna Dimension Brass comes with the free Vienna Instruments player. To make the most of these unique multi-dimensional samples, we recommend using Vienna Instruments PRO (a fully functional demo version is included in the box). Its auto-divisi mode automatically splits voices between players, and the tailor-made Humanize Presets let you easily control the performance accuracy of your virtual musicians in real-time, at the single touch of a fader – from subtle tuning and timing variations to heavy cluster effects.

Vienna Dimension Brass is available at the introductory price $625 USD until February 15, 2011. The library will start shipping on January 17, 2011.
