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.
Based on the Standard Libraries the FULL Libraries include additional instruments and articulations.
The Woodwinds I Collection contains the four main wind instruments, flute, oboe, clarinet, and bassoon – each recorded as a solo instrument and in three-player ensembles. First-rate musicians of leading European orchestras provide the sound and character as soloists and ensemble leaders. Gisela Mashayekhi-Beer was the solo flutist of the Zurich Opera orchestra and taught at the Bruckner University Linz and at the Vienna Music University. Markus Deuter was (and is) first oboist of numerous German orchestras; he came to Vienna especially for the recordings of the French oboe. The clarinetist Daniel Hörth can look back at an international concert career with the Vienna Philharmonic, the Vienna Symphonic Orchestra, and more. Finally, Martin Machovits, among other assignments, is solo bassoon player at the Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra.
The solo instruments as well as the ensembles offer fast and slow Interval Performances in legato and marcato styles as well as Performance Trills. Utmost attention was given especially to the sensitive slow legato repetitions of the solo flute and the lyrical and expressive vibrato of the French oboe, most effectively used in the Legato Performances. The flute and clarinet arpeggios (major, minor, and diminished broken chords in legato and staccato styles) are an outstanding specialty, as are the solo flutes mordents and the French oboes flutter tonguing.
Woodwinds I - Instruments: Flute 1, French oboe, Clarinet, Bassoon, Flute ensemble (3 players), Oboe ensemble (3 players), Clarinet ensemble (3 Players) & Bassoon ensemble (3 players)

I use the products of VSL for several years and are always happy with their quality.
Vienna symphonic library Instrumente sind so etwas wie der Standard geworden. eine Einarbeitungszeit in den Vienna Instruments Pro Player ist notwendig um das ganze Potential dieser Instrumente wirklich auszuschöpfen. Aber die Arbeit lohnt sich!
Ich besitze schon die VSL Special Edition Library und ich bin sehr zufrieden. Nun habe ich die Woodwinds I gekauft und WOW! Toll! Diese Instrumente klingen absolut realistisch.

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.
