Vienna Ensemble Pro 6–Recensione

https://www.vsl.co.at/en/Vienna_Software_Package/Vienna_Ensemble_PRO

Vienna Ensemble Pro has become the definitive cross-platform network solution in studios and production facilities around the world. This mixing and hosting application enables you to set up a multiple computer network with both Macs and PCs without the need for extra MIDI and audio interfaces – all you need is a simple Ethernet cable! Even when you’re using only one computer, Vienna Ensemble Pro improves your work-flow dramatically, with unique functions such as “Preserve” that keeps all your plug-ins and samples loaded while switching from one project to another – a huge time saver!

The Crystal Method

Of course Vienna Ensemble Pro supports Vienna Instruments, but you may also integrate all of your third-party 64-bit and 32-bit VST/AU instruments and effects plug-ins (such as Spectrasonics, Native Instruments, Waves, you name it) and mix them in stereo and surround (up to 7.1), with full parameter automation and optional one-click integration with Vienna MIR Pro. What’s more, with the included Epic Orchestra Sample Pack you get a powerful all-in-one production tool to get you started right away!

Vienna Ensemble Pro 6 is the latest version and comes with a wealth of new features and performance improvements. Please find an overview of all the key features and versions under the Product Comparison menu.

New Features
  • Retina (HiDPI) graphics support on both Mac and PCs
  • Tabbed instances – Improved organization with one common window for all instances, with detachable instances, re-ordering of instances, and tab-coloring for better identification
  • Frozen/Disabled channels allow unloading all plug-ins (including their allocated memory) from a selected channel, while keeping data intact
  • Intelligent auto-save functionality – Auto-saves project in desired intervals, but only when transport is stopped, so it doesn’t interrupt a playing session. Easily recover projects in the event of a crash.
  • VCA folders let you organize your channels conveniently with folders and subfolders that are easy to color-code
  • VST hosting on the Mac, allowing for full compatibility with Windows
  • Channel grouping allows assigning channels to a group, with option to link selected parameters to the entire group
  • “Raise Instance” is now a Vienna Ensemble Pro plug-in parameter to enable automation/hardware controller assignment for quick instance access
  • “Auto Raise Instance” option raises the connected Vienna Ensemble Pro instance automatically when you show the Vienna Ensemble Pro plug-in
  • New code base for about 70% less CPU usage for all internal Vienna Ensemble Pro calculations
  • Rewritten user interface code resulting in 80% less CPU usage for graphics
  • Improved multi-threading performance for increased plug-in hosting capacity
  • Redesigned, resizable plug-in window and Audio/Event Input Plug-in
  • Faster connection/disconnection times when switching between projects
  • Unified channel model – No more need to create different channels for Vienna Instruments or 3rd party plug-ins. Every channel now has the capability to be a bus, audio input, plug-in channel, Vienna Instruments, Vienna Instruments Pro or Vienna Imperial channel. Drag & drop plug-ins to any channel.
  • In combination with Vienna MIR Pro: Impulse response files loading up to 5 times faster, improved graphical performance (especially under OS X).
  • Mixer Interface Customization allows turning on or off sections in the mixer to suit your needs
  • Transmission of all keys to host – Shortcuts not in use by Vienna Ensemble Pro will be transferred to a connected DAW
  • Miniature view – Channel strips can now be further collapsed
  • Faster plug-in scanning
  • Many more usability improvements throughout the application
Existing Features

Vienna Ensemble Pro comes with 3 licenses for setting up a multi-computer network. One license of the Epic Orchestra sample pack is included as well. Please note that you will not receive an additional license for Epic Orchestra when purchasing the upgrade!

IK Multimedia presenta la nuova struttura con studio di registrazione

IK Multimedia. Musicians First.

All’avanguardia e in perfetto stile Italiano:

IK Multimedia presenta la nuova struttura con studio di registrazione
L’azienda investe sulla produzione interna di alta qualità e su ricerca e sviluppo

IK Multimedia new facility

30 Ottobre 2018 – IK Multimedia è orgogliosa di annunciare il termine dei lavori di ampliamento della sua sede di Modena. Il nuovo complesso espande notevolmente le capacità interne di ricerca e sviluppo, produzione e logistica e aggiunge uno studio di registrazione audio all’avanguardia per campionamento audio e sound-design.
L’edificio dal design altamente personalizzato è stato auto-finanziato con un investimento di 3 milioni di dollari, consentendo maggiori capacità produttive e di logistica in Italia con un grado di efficienza superiore, pur continuando ad offrire prodotti a prezzi competitivi. La nuova struttura consente di realizzare la maggior parte dei prodotti IK internamente, anche grazie a maggiori investimenti nell’infrastruttura produttiva e a nuove catene e processi di produzione.
La nuova catena di approvvigionamento a km zero si integra con l’infrastruttura a risparmio energetico del nuovo edificio, consentendo un approccio produttivo a impatto ridotto e più rispettoso dell’ambiente.
Laura Melotti, direttore finanziario della società Italiana e uno dei fondatori e azionisti, ha svolto un ruolo cruciale nel coordinamento di questa espansione, grazie ai suoi 35 anni di esperienza nel campo.
Un notevole investimento è stato fatto anche nella costruzione del nuovo studio di registrazione, che completa il nuovo complesso. È dotato di strumentazioni all’avanguardia e trattamenti acustici di altissima gamma, per una registrazione audio cristallina durante lo sviluppo di nuovi prodotti..

IK Multimedia - New recording studio

Questa espansione è in linea con la missione di IK di proporre nuove soluzioni per la creazione musicale dedicate a musicisti di tutti i livelli ed è il risultato della continua crescita dell’azienda dal suo debutto nel 1996.
Oggi IK Multimedia conta più di 140 dipendenti, una rete mondiale di rivenditori e distributori e oltre 3 milioni di utenti attivi in quasi ogni angolo del mondo. Il portfolio diversificato di prodotti software e hardware della società include numerose innovazioni nel settore in più categorie (interfacce, controller, microfoni, casse audio, sintetizzatori, software, app, accessori) e offre strumenti creativi per registrazione musicale in studio, creazione di contenuti audio/video in formato mobile, performance dal vivo e molto altro ancora.
IK Multimedia è situata nella “Motor Valley” d’Italia, sede di alcuni tra i marchi automobilistici più prestigiosi al mondo: Ferrari, Lamborghini, Maserati e Ducati. La città di Modena, come la stessa IK Multimedia, combina una cultura della manifattura high-tech con una storia di fine artigianato Italiano.
Questa è la terza struttura di IK nell’area di Modena durante i 22 anni di storia dell’azienda.
Il primo ufficio IK Multimedia era situato in centro a Modena, vicino al complesso composto da Duomo, Torre Ghirlandina e Piazza Grande, patrimonio dell’Unesco dal 1997. Nel 1998, l’azienda si trasferì nella zona industriale in cui è tutt’ora. Da allora la struttura si è espansa ed evoluta in linea con la crescita complessiva dell’azienda e con la scelta di produrre più hardware in Italia. Con questa nuova struttura, il campus di IK ora comprende tre edifici che ospitano tutte le funzioni chiave, oltre ai nuovi uffici USA di Sunrise in Florida, inaugurati nel 2017.

Best Service–Emotional Violin

Best Service Newsletter


Best Service releases “Emotional Violin”

If you are looking for the perfect instrument for film scoring, pop music, songwriting, classical or modern avant-garde violin compositions, the Emotional Violin is your first choice! A unique, virtual instrument that convinces through its variety of articulations, its direct and unadulterated sound and unusual playing techniques, including rebowing. With its impressive and at the same time emotional sound, it enables expressions that have never been achieved before.

Emotional Violin has been recorded throughout in a musical context to capture the expressiveness and natural bowing of real instrumentalists. The intelligent scripting enables more than 50 different playing styles and True Legato, making this library extremely versatile. In addition to the usual playing styles and articulations, the Emotional Violin also features extraordinary techniques such as:

  • Paganini Run (Legato)

  • Morbid Sustain

  • Riccochet

  • Flautando

  • Sulponti

  • Double Stopped Chords

    Contextual Sampling

    Our philosophy during the recordings is called “Contextual Sampling”. In order to find the perfect sound, various string instruments were recorded over a period of four years. We came to the conclusion that no technique comes even close to the actual and natural vibrato of a trained musician.

    The sampling of real vibrato of course has some conceptual drawbacks, but these recordings are always more inspiring and organic than adding an artificial vibrato. So our goal was to perfectly capture these musical aspects and combine them into a great sounding and easy to play instrument.

    Violin Image One
    The result is a library with unsurpassed authenticity

    This wonderful sound is rounded off by a multitude of articulations. Thus, different phrases, turns, variations, bars and closing notes can be used as actually independent phrasings without having to repeat themselves. So that these sounds and articulations can be used appropriately to the context, respective keyswitches such as Delicate Fast, Vivid or Moderate have been added.

    Emotional Violin also offers unusual articulations that you won’t find in any other library. Simply select from one of the following:

  • Normal Sustains with and without Vibrato

  • Multiple Progressive Vibratos

  • Multiple Espressivo

  • Flautando

  • Sul Ponticello

  • Morbid Sustains

  • Harmonics

  • Multiple Spiccatos

  • Staccato

  • Marcato

  • Tremolo

  • Tremolo Sul Ponticello

  • Multiple Trills

  • Pizzicato

  • Pizzicato Snap

  • Paganini Pizzicato

  • Scratches

  • Piazolla FX

  • Diverse Violin Effects

  • Violin Percussions

This library also features technical refinements such as Rebowing, which allows you to switch between bow strokes using the Keyswitch – extremely useful for long sustains. The Vibrato Crossfade works in a similar way, allowing you to easily fade from non-vibrato to vibrato.

The Recording

The Emotional Violin was recorded at the Mastermix Studio near Munich in a wood-panelled room with a large ceiling height and the greatest possible distance to the wall. For maximum flexibility, two Neumann KM184 and U87 microphones were deliberately used to record closely. Therefore the room amount is quite subtle and you can use your own effects for further processing. However, you can also use the integrated Convolution Reverb.

Emotional Violin Articulations Screen
Kontakt

Emotional Violin has three True Legato Master Patches, including the “Romantic Violin” and the “Intimate Violin”. These contain about 80% of all recorded articulations, which logically overlap. If, for example, you play an opening note that of course has no legato, you will only hear one note with a natural string opening. As soon as you play legato or sustain notes, you will hear a note that originates from the corresponding context of the original recordings.

In addition, the library contains more than 70 articulations, which are grouped into categories and are available as multi-keyswitch patches – everything from simple sustains to dynamic crossfades between four layers is included. So if you don’t want to work with keyswitches, this way of working is perfect for you.
To ensure the highest possible liveliness, many variations contain up to 9 Round Robins.


Emotional Violin is the second virtual instrument in this series, produced by Harmonic Subtones, the makers of Emotional Cello.

Celtic Era Header
Celtic ERA – when druids of the Highlands ask for a dance

With Celtic ERA, Eduardo Tarilonte once again takes you to a fascinating journey through time. This time, he travels far north to the roots of the Celtic culture. Sounds having been been played in the green vastness and the high mountains of Ireland for ages are now available at your fingertips with Celtic ERA.

After creating successful libraries such as Ancient ERA Persia, Forest Kingdom, Desert Winds, Epic World and ERA Medieval Legends, sample-mastermind Eduardo Tarilonte has dedicated himself to the sound of Nordic myths.

Whenever the unmistakable flutes are heard, they’ll magically enchant our dreaming minds with pictures of the green island and its majestic Nordic mountains. Hence, Celtic ERA is the pick of the bunch for film-scores and background music for television documentations taking place or being settled in this region. Whether historical or fictional background, the authentic sounds of Celtic ERA will lift the power of the pictures to a new level.Celtic ERA Screen and Box Image

Features Overview
  • 18-GB-heavy library with more than 18,000 samples

  • 23 brass-, string- and percussion-instruments in full detail and with immaculate quality

  • three additional instruments from the Bronze Age: Cranyx, Cornu and War Horns

  • All instruments are elaborated multisamples (24 bit/ 44,1 kHz) with several dynamic graduations, various articulations, round robin and real legato samples as well as dedicated glissando samples

  • Recorded using selected Kahayan U47-microphones into preamplifiers by the same manufacturer

  • All instruments have been played by superb musicians of the Irish music scene

  • Including authentic phrases as MIDI-patterns as well as inspiring soundscapes

Celtic Era Instruments Image 1The Instruments

For Celtic ERA, Eduardo Tarilonte has recorded 23 brass-, string- and percussion-instruments in full detail and with immaculate quality. Find catchy flutes, dreamy harps, the famous Uilleann Pipes and the indispensable Bodhran drums. To achieve an even greater variety, some sounds have been created by recording two different instruments of the same kind. This allows you for example to play a harp duet without the instruments sounding identical.

In addition, authentic phrases have been recorded as MIDI-patterns as well as inspiring soundscapes. Naturally, the instruments are offered in all of their typical articulations with an added true legato function.

List of Instruments:

Celtic ERA Instruments Banner TwoWinds:

Instruments from the Bronze Age

A true highlight of this library are three additional instruments, unheard in any previous sample library: Cranyx, Cornu and War Horns already existed in the bronze age. These instruments allow you to tap into unexplored sound worlds.

The instruments of this roundabout 18-GB-heavy library (consisting of more than 18,000 samples) are elaborated multisamples (24 bit/ 44,1 kHz) with several dynamic graduations, various articulations, round-robin- and real legato-samples as well as dedicated glissando samples.

The Engine

Celtic ERA transfers the sounds of the far north, that have been preserved until this day from times long gone by, into today’s DAW-based production environment. The carefully programmed user interface of the Engine player makes work with this library real easy, allowing musicians to be inspired by the libraries’ sounds to fully unfold their creativity.

Celtic Era GUI Screen 1Who is it for?

Celtic ERA is suited for different applications and musical applications and styles. Its spectrum ranges from scoring traditional compositions with authentic sounds, to fantasy games and movie soundtracks and as far as to the new age genre.

The sounds of Celtic ERA are completely unique and cannot be found in any other library. The outstanding selection of instruments, the MIDI-patterns and soundscapes provide you with an extensive collection which leaves as good as no sound left to be desired.

The Recordings

Eldana Studio

The recordings for Celtic ERA were made in Eldana studios in Spanish Dueñas . All instruments have been played by superb musicians being part of the Irish music scene. Martino Vacca (Uilleann Pipes, Irish Flute, Whistles), Karen Hickey (Fiddle), Carlos Martín Aires (Acoustic Guitar, Irish Bouzouki, Tenor Banjo), Jean Yves Magre (Highland Pipes), Pablo Vergara (Bodhrans). Eduardo Tarilonte, the creator of this library, single-handedly played the Concertinas and Celtic Harps while the three historical instruments were performed by Abraham Cureiro.

All instruments have been recorded using selected Kahayan U47-microphones into preamplifiers by the same manufacturer. Miking was carried out intentionally close and thus without room detail. This procedure offers full control over the following sculpting of the sounds and effects. Therefore, the sounds of Celtic ERA can be combined with Eduardo Tarilonte’s others libraries without any difficulty.
