The horn ensemble with 8 double horns has been known since the successful 'Epic Horns' edition of the former Horizon Series sample libraries. It is a massive body of sound that impressively fulfills the sound ideal of both the oversized, late romantic orchestra and the Hollywood orchestra in an epic cinemascope width.
The Standard Library of the Download Instrument contains all the Epic horns samples and some additional articulations. With the full library, the instrument corresponds to the full scope as contained in the large DVD collection Brass II Extended Library. A detailed list of the available playing styles can be found under the menu item Sample Content.
The purchase of Epic horns also entitles you to download the Vienna Instruments software player and the Vienna Ensemble mixing and host software free of charge.

Vienna Instruments and software require a ViennaKey !
The USB dongle from eLicenser (Steinberg, formerly Syncrosoft) is not included in the Vienna Instruments, but must be purchased separately. So you have to order at least one ViennaKey together with your first collection. It is automatically placed in the basket with the first instrument, but can be deleted again if you do not need it. Each ViennaKey can store up to 100 product licenses.
You also need an internet connection on any computer to authorize a ViennaKey.
