Apart from the multitude of percussion instruments already contained in the Pro Edition and Horizon Series Libraries, Vienna Instruments also offer new instruments, making this Collection a truly magnificent profusion of percussion! Many instruments are now available in a second version: Timpani 2 (with up to eight velocities), snare drum 2 (up to 12 velocities, with and without snare), bass drum 2, field drum 2, tambourine 2, triangle 2, suspended cymbals 2, and a-due cymbals 2. Moreover, there are completely new instruments, such as concert toms, roto toms and Taiko drums.
As a novel feature, this Collection also contains production-ready instruments, processed with sought-after high-end studio equipment, put into the right perspective with multi-sampled convolution reverb from the Vienna Symphonic Librarys MIR development. The basic percussion instruments (timpani, snare and bass drum, tambourine, suspended cymbals, a-due cymbals, glockenspiel, triangle, xylophone, tubular bells, tam-tam and concert toms) thus are not only available as samples with minimal reverb of the Silent Stage, but also with the reverb of the world-famous Wiener Konzerthaus in various stage positions. Naturally, these MIR impulses implemented in the samples just scratch the surface of the potential and flexibility of the future MIR engine; nevertheless, they offer a preview of its acoustic possibilities and allow the user to work quickly.

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.
Extended Libraries cannot be used without the corresponding Standard Library!

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.
