Vienna Ensemble PRO 5 from Vienna Symphonic Library is a mixing and hosting application, custom made for hosting Vienna Instruments, as well as third-party 64- and 32-bit VSTi (Windows) and Audio Units (Mac) instruments and effect plug-ins. Use it as a host on the same computer as the sequencer to integrate all instrument and effect plug-ins from manufacturers such as Spectrasonics, Native Instruments, Waves, and more.

Additionally, the software can be used for a master-slave solution with multiple Macs and PCs, all connected with a standard Ethernet cable. It is easy to route the audio streams of a whole arsenal of computers back to the main machine without the need of external hardware. The Preserve function keeps all of templates and samples loaded while switching from one project to another. The Pro Tools user may integrate their favorite Audio Units and VST plug-ins into their sessions.

New Features

  • Full integration with Vienna MIR PRO (not included) which can be opened with a single click from within Vienna Ensemble PRO 5 - inserting Vienna MIR PRO on any channel of Ensemble PRO 5 will route the channel's signal to the MIR application, which may run on the same computer or slave computer connected with an Ethernet cable
  • Full ITU surround support up to 7.1 with integrated plug-ins for surround-to-surround balancing and mono/stereo-to-surround
  • Full plug-in latency compensation ensures full sync of all plug-ins inside each instance of the software
  • Fully mappable touch parameter automation - control all plug-ins on slave computers right from the master and start/stop a sequencer or DAW with the space bar from within Ensemble PRO 5
  • Post-effect plug-in rack for processing after pre-fader sends
  • Audio input plug-in allows for routing audio signals from the DAW into Ensemble PRO 5, e.g., to turn it into a virtual FX rack on a slave computer
  • Event input plug-in allows for routing MIDI data from a DAW into Ensemble PRO 5 to circumvent the single MIDI port limitation under the Audio Units and VST2 formats
  • VST3 and RTAS connector plug-ins provide support for up to 48 MIDI ports and 768 audio ports per instance
Existing Features

  • MIDI and audio LAN solution that works universally on Mac and Windows based computers
  • No audio or MIDI interfaces required on additional computers (slaves) - just Ethernet with a Gigabit connection
  • Launch as many Vienna Ensemble PRO instances as needed (depending on available RAM)
  • Third party VSTi/Audio Units hosting (multichannel) - instantiate Vienna Instruments along with other instruments from Spectrasonics, Native Instruments, and more
  • Preserve Instance - disconnect Vienna Ensemble PRO from the sequencer while keeping all of the instruments and samples loaded, and re-connect to a new cue or project without loading again
  • Mixer automation - use Audio Units/VST/RTAS automation from a sequencer to control the Ensemble PRO mixer (volume, pan and sends)
  • Channel strip and mixer strip sizing allows for switching between wide or narrow channel strips for optimal viewing and saving screen space
  • Customized setup preset for Epic Orchestra Pack
  • Link Pages - when activated, all Vienna Instruments GUIs show the same "Patch Assign" window when switching tracks
  • Optimize All - a single mouse click clears out RAM by purging all unused samples of all instantiated Vienna Instruments
  • Selective Project Merging assembles all the parts of various existing projects into one new template
  • Definable play ranges for multi-instrument set-ups for studio and live use
  • Multiple key-range spans per instrument
  • Flexible routing with freely assignable busses
  • Audio input channels route external audio directly into the mixer (stand-alone mode only)
  • Multiple Undo/Redo
  • Slave mode-host tempo synchronization
  • Separated server solution that utilizes additional free memory, leaving host sequencer memory or memory used by additional Vienna Instruments plug-ins unaffected
  • Dual architecture servers - run 64-bit and 32-bit Vienna Ensemble PRO servers side-by-side on the same computer making it easy to integrate 32-bit third-party instruments into templates
  • Mac OS X 64-bit support
  • Improved loopback performance (Mac) - running Vienna Ensemble PRO server on the same machine as the sequencer now puts much less strain on the system, allowing it to perform more reliably
  • Host both Carbon and Cocoa Audio Unit plug-ins (32- and 64-bit)
  • PC server interface plug-in: VST/VST3 (64- and 32-bit), RTAS (32-bit)
  • PC server/stand-alone: 32- and 64-bit
  • Mac server interface plug-in: RTAS (32-bit Intel/PPC), Audio Units/VST/VST3 (32- and 64-bit Intel, 32-bit PPC)
  • Mac server/stand-alone: 32- and 64-bit for both Intel and PPC Macs (Intel recommended - PPC not actively supported)
  • Instant instrument switching delivers immediate access to all instruments within the Vienna Ensemble PRO user interface
  • Instrument naming - all instances inside Vienna Ensemble PRO can be labeled for a complete at-a-glance overview
  • Total recall allows for orchestra setups can be saved with one click
  • Inserts for Audio Units (Mac) and VST (PC) effect plug-ins
  • Panning and Power Panning for precise positioning
