Special Edition Vol. 2 PLUS
Articulation Expansion to Vol. 2
The Special Edition Volume 2 PLUS (former labeling was "Special Edition PLUS Extended Library") features additional articulations for the string, brass and woodwind instruments included in the Special Edition Volume 2.
As a user of the Special Edition Volume 2 you may quickly and conveniently add articulations you find very useful to improve the variability of your orchestrations. These samples are not included in the Special Edition Volume 2, but have been specifically selected for this collection. For example, while the Chamber Strings articulations in the Special Edition Volume 2 include staccato, détaché, sustained, sforzato, tremolo, pizzicato, legato and portamento, the PLUS collection supplements these with the addition of the following articulations: Short détaché, fortepiano, snap-pizzicato, half and whole tone trills, Repetition Performances (legato & spiccato), fast repetitions (150, 170, 190 bpm), and artificial harmonics (staccato & sustain).
Please note that the Special Edition Volume 2 PLUS contains some Matrices that resort to Patches from the Special Edition Volume 2. The prior installation of the Special Edition Volume 2 is therefore required in order to load these Matrices.
The Vienna Special Editions offer a large-scale orchestra and more in resource-saving, affordable packages. Whether you’d like to score big with specially priced BUNDLES or start with individual instrument SECTIONS (Strings, Woodwinds, Brass, Percussion & More, Keyboards & Guitars) – you can’t go wrong with the Vienna Special Editions. All sounds work perfectly in a variety of musical styles, from pop and rock environments to large symphonic arrangements.

Vienna Instruments require the ViennaKey!
This USB protection device by eLicenser (by Steinberg, 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.
