VSL Vienna Instruments Pro
The Vienna Symphonic Library has announced the release of Vienna Instruments Pro, a new software sample player based on their audio engine.
While it provides fcompatibility with existing and future Vienna Instruments sample collections, it features several innovations, such as a Humanize function that brings human behaviour into the virtual world of sample-based orchestral production, according to VSL.
Vienna Instruments Pro offers options to customize patches and articulations to suit the user’s personal workflow, which is designed to make the creative process faster and easier. With the Human Performance Control feature users can adjust the performance accuracy in terms of timing and intonation of the virtual musicians in real-time, at the touch of a fader.
Up to eight instruments and articulations can be stacked in a single cell of a matrix, allowing for individual adjustments of volume and panning in the rack mixer.
Sample lengths of fixed performances, such as runs, fast repetitions or arpeggios can be matched to the required tempo with the time stretching tool. Users with a special interest in ancient or non-western music are presented with microtuning scales such as “just intonation”, Werckmeister or several Arabic, Turkish or Chinese scales, with an option for creating their own scales.
Vienna Instruments Pro’s features include faster loading times, a new browser with a search function, built-in reverb and Equalizer, as well as an all-new user interface with basic and advanced views, according to the company.
While the former Vienna Instruments Player is still included with any Vienna Instruments Collection as free software, the new Vienna Instruments PRO player will load all existing and future Vienna Instruments sample collections, including factory and user presets.

Priced at €125 / $163, Vienna Instruments Pro is available as a download product in the webshops of the Vienna Symphonic Library and ILIO.
