The foundation of the orchestra - cellos and basses

The Vienna Instruments string sections offer an extremely wide range of playing styles. The special characteristics of these sound bodies are taken into account by a large number of performances, which show their strengths especially in interaction with the algorithms of the Vienna Instrument Player. In larger ensembles, the random effect with trills or fast legatas comes into its own and gives these performance patches special authenticity. The larger the ensemble, the more intense the effect that implements the natural “imperfection” of the individual musicians when changing from one note to the next. This effect was particularly taken into account in the "Repetition Performances Pizzicati", which were recorded in two different tempos.

Product activation:
Vienna Instruments and software require a ViennaKey !
The USB dongle from eLicenser (Steinberg compatible) is not included in the Vienna Instruments, but must be purchased separately. So you have to order at least one ViennaKey or Steinberg eLicenser together with your first VSL product. Each ViennaKey can store up to 100 product licenses.
You also need an internet connection on any computer to authorize a ViennaKey.
