With the release of several new "Download Collections" such as Soprano Choir and Upright Bass the Vienna Symphonic Library has surpassed the magic number of one million published samples. Spread over 31 DVD and download collections, users have an abundance of choices, from basic editions at entry level prices to high-end professional solutions, from the classic symphony orchestra to the electric distorted guitar, from Baroque to jazz.
Only a few weeks ago, the Vienna Symphonic Library began offering download products, providing quick and easy access to certain Vienna Instruments Collections. As of today, these collections are available from the download section of the company's webshop:
Vienna Special Edition – Standard Libraries
The four download collections Strings, Woodwinds, Bass, and Percussion & More make up the complete Vienna Special Edition – Standard Library. The Vienna Special Edition is the company's all-in-one orchestral collection offered at an entry-level price. Now users can download the instrument groups individually and have them ready to play instantly.
Special Edition PLUS Libraries
The download collections Strings PLUS, Woodwinds PLUS, and Brass PLUS are the ideal expansions to the Vienna Special Edition – Standard Library, whether purchased on DVDs or downloaded from the web shop. The PLUS Collections feature additional articulations of every Standard Library instrument which customers of the Vienna Special Edition should find especially useful, such as short détachés, snap pizzicatos and ponticellos for the string instruments.
The seven-string, total distortion guitar for fluid solos and authentic power chords from Vienna's former Horizon Series lives on in this downloadable collection.
Vienna Concert Guitar
This complete concert guitar from the former Horizon Series is back as a Vienna Instruments download, offering all the wealth of articulations and nuances of the nylon guitar.
Unlike the previously mentioned collections, this instrument is only available as a download. The plucked bass features a multitude of jazz articulations, including typical plucked and slapped sounds, slides and effects.
The world's first legato-sampled choir is now available as a virtual instrument. Also available exclusively as a download, this collection features 16 female singers performing vowels and syllables in many variations, spanning their entire tonal range.
Prices start at €65.
