Vienna Symphonic Library Special Edition Vol. 2 Bundle at a Glance:
  • Performance Detection for creating realistic parts
  • Built-in RAM optimization preserves resources
  • Supreme-quality samples and amazing ease of use
  • Breathe life into your compositions
Performance Detection for creating realistic parts

The Vienna Symphonic Library team not only recorded single notes for all instruments and ensembles, but also comprehensively captured what happened in between the notes, where the real nuances of a live performance occur. When you play a Legato Performance Patch of a solo violin, algorithms that are built into the Patch check for the intervals you're playing and automatically provide you with the proper note transitions - just as a gifted musician would play them. Other built-in algorithms detect your playing speed to trigger the right articulations, or automatically detect repeated notes, and alternate samples so the orchestration doesn't sound mechanical.

Built-in RAM optimization preserves resources

Imagine you're working on an instrument in a song and you're loading various playing techniques for this instrument - say the ensemble violins. For every playing technique, several octaves of chromatically sampled notes are now living in RAM, even though you actually need only a small percentage of them to perform your violin passages. To make the best use of your resources, Vienna implemented a "Learn" button that you can click when you're finished composing with the instrument. Just start your sequencers, and Vienna Instrument flags each sample that's used. After stopping your sequencer, click "optimize" and Vienna kicks the unused samples out of RAM, retaining an average of only 3% of the samples that you originally loaded for the performance.

Supreme-quality samples and amazing ease of use

Vienna Symphonic Library is known for their painstaking, golden-eared approach to recording the superb-sounding samples that comprise their highly regarded library. It's the jaw-dropping sonic quality and the broad selection of virtual instruments that makes Vienna Symphonic Library instruments staples in top studios worldwide, but it's the company's cool software innovations and ease-of-use that'll have you singing their praises next time you're composing to a tight deadline!

Breathe life into your compositions

Vienna Instruments' Special Edition Volume 2 Plus adds a boost to the realism of your Volume 2 library. While this Special Edition PLUS collection doesn't add samples to your Volume 2 collection, it does add additional articulations that heighten the realism and variability of your orchestrations. Taking the solo violin in your Special Edition Volume 2 as an example, it already includes a number of amazingly realistic articulations. This PLUS collection supplements these with short detache, fortepiano, snap-pizzicato, col legno, half and whole tone trills, repetition performances (legato & spiccato), fast repetitions (150, 170, 190 bpm), artificial harmonics (staccato & sustain), and ponticello (staccato, sustain, tremolo).
