The big Vienna Instruments Collections are the most powerful sample-based orchestral virtual instruments ever created. The collections, organized in the categories of Strings, Winds, Percussion & Keyboards, and Voices, offer the most complete playing techniques and articulations of all instruments, enabling you to create sonic results of the highest caliber and utmost authenticity. You can purchase them as VSL Instruments Bundles for a reduced bundle price.
Beside the Standard collections we offer Extended collections for almost all Instruments Collections. Based on the Standard libraries they include additional instruments and articulations. Standard library plus Extended library result in the Full library.
Vienna Instruments give you a wealth of possibilities for upgrades and expansions. Each registered Single Instrument Download or Special Edition Instrument can give you a credit toward the big Vienna Instruments collection that contains the corresponding instrument. In the shopping cart we will check for a possible discount which will be substracted if available. The licenses of discounted products will be delivered within a working day latest.
Boesendorfer Imperial - Instrument Collection VI16
Met de volledige medewerking van de Bösendorfer Klavierfabrik ontwikkelde het Vienna Symphonic Library team haar eerste gesamplede concertvleugel in software-instrument: een levensechte nabootsing van een Bösendorfer 290 Imperial. Tijdens deze opname stonden de beste techneuten en pianobouwers klaar voor de sample experts uit Wenen. De Vienna Instruments Collection Bösendorfer Imperial maakt ten volste gebruik van Vienna’s nieuwe sound-engine en performance algoritmen, waaronder automatic repetition performances. De enorme, ongeëvenaarde sample set, met zijn omvang van maar liefst 54 GB, omvat loopvrije sustain samples in variaties met en zonder pedaal en in 7 velocity lagen, ‘tone repetitions’, uitgebreide sustain opnames, pedaalresonanties, meerdere release opnames en toetsengeluiden.
For the first time in the long history of piano sampling, the sound of the piano in its resonating state – with the sustain (damper) pedal depressed – has been captured. This results in the physically correct recreation of the piano’s resonant character in both pedal-down and pedal-up positions. With the Boesendorfer Imperial Vienna Instrument there are no sample manipulations, no fades between tones, and no DSP calculations, just an absolutely natural acoustic image of the actual processes that occur during piano playing. The Vienna team has developed a recording process that adds to a single tone the exact sound that is created when the pianist presses the piano’s sustain pedal, allowing other strings to vibrate. So the Vienna Instrument acts just like the piano itself, creating the characteristic pedal tone sound which now for the first time is available in the shape of samples.
The Boesendorfer Imperial Collection is not divided into Standard and Extended Libraries like other Vienna Instruments Collections, the Standard package includes the full set of samples along with the software instrument/engine.

Vienna Instruments require the ViennaKey!
This USB protection device by eLicenser (formerly Syncrosoft) is not included in the box of any collection, it is a separate item you have to get additionally. So you’ll have to order at least one ViennaKey with your first purchase. It will be put inside the shopping basket automatically but can be deleted if not required. Customers who order the complete SYMPHONIC CUBE will get one ViennaKey for free (not shown in the basket). If you already own another eLicenser USB protection device (e.g., from Steinberg or Arturia), you can use it for the VIENNA INSTRUMENTS, too. Each dongle can store up to 100 product licenses.
Additionally an internet connection on any computer is required to authorize a VSL product.
