They are converging two technologies designed to bring forth a symbiosis of systems and workflows – Vienna Ensemble PRO 5 with one-click integration of Vienna MIR PRO. Both new software applications come with a host of new features.
New features of Vienna Ensemble PRO 5
The new Vienna Ensemble PRO 5 mixing host offers full surround support adhering to ITU standards (up to 7.1), touch parameter automation for total control of all plug-ins on slave computers, and a transport function to start/stop the sequencer from within Vienna Ensemble PRO 5. The new audio input plug-in enables users to route audio signals directly from their DAW into Vienna Ensemble PRO 5, e.g., to turn it into a virtual FX rack on their slave computer. By far the most outstanding new feature is the optional integration of Vienna MIR PRO, which can be opened with a single click from within Vienna Ensemble PRO 5, routing the channel’s signal directly to the Vienna MIR PRO application.
Vienna Ensemble PRO 5 supports the formats AU/VST/VST3/RTAS and comes with 3 licenses for setting up a network of up to 4 computers. An additional license of Epic Orchestra, a free 9 GB Grand Orchestra Sample Pack, is included.
