Vienna Symphonic Library VSLS11-6 overview

  • 1Description

Vienna Ensemble PRO 6 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. The application allows for setting up a cross-platform, multiple-computer network without the need for extra MIDI and audio interfaces using a simple Ethernet cable. Additionally, the included Epic Orchestra Sample Pack provides an all-in-one production tool for getting started right away.

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, and mix them in stereo and surround (up to 7.1), with full parameter automation and optional one-click integration with Vienna MIR Pro. 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
  • Retina (HiDPI) graphics support on both Mac- and Windows-based computers
  • 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 allows for organizing 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 shown 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 third-party plug-ins
  • Every channel has the capability to be a bus, audio input, plug-in channel, Vienna Instruments, Vienna Instruments Pro, or Vienna Imperial channel
  • Drag and drop plug-ins to any channel
  • In combination with Vienna MIR Pro - impulse response files loading up to five times faster, improved graphical performance (especially under OS X)
  • Mixer Interface Customization allows turning on or off sections in the mixer to suit 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
  • Usability improvements throughout the application
    Existing Features
    • Cross-platform MIDI and audio LAN solution for Mac- and Windows-based computers
    • No audio interfaces, no MIDI interfaces on additional networked computers - all that is required is Ethernet with a Gigabit connection
    • Full surround-support up to 7.1 with integrated plug-ins for surround-to-surround balancing and mono/stereo-to-surround
    • Third-party Audio Units/VST (Mac) and VST (Windows) hosting - instantiate Vienna Instruments along with other third-party VST and Audio Units plug-ins (works with nearly all available VST/ Audio Units plug-ins and supports multiple outputs)
    • Dual-architecture servers - run 64-bit and 32-bit Vienna Ensemble Pro Servers side-by-side on the same computer and integrate 32-bit third-party instruments into a 64-bit DAW and vice versa
    • VST3/AAX Native/RTAS/MAS connector plug-ins - supports up to 48 MIDI ports and 768 audio ports per instance
    • Event input plug-in - route MIDI data from your DAW into Vienna Ensemble Pro to circumvent the single MIDI port limitation under Audio Units and VST2 formats (e.g., Logic, Digital Performer)
    • Audio input plug-in - route audio signals from your DAW into Vienna Ensemble Pro, e.g., to turn it into a virtual FX rack on a networked computer
    • Preserve Instance - disconnect Vienna Ensemble Pro from the sequencer while keeping all instruments and samples loaded, and re-connect to a new cue or project without loading again
    • Optimize All - clean up RAM by purging all unused samples of all instantiated Vienna Instruments with a single mouse click
    • Slave mode host-tempo synchronization
    • Plug-in latency compensation ensures full sync of all plug-ins inside each Vienna Ensemble Pro instance
    • Fully mappable touch parameter automation - control all plug-ins on networked computers right from the master
    • Mixer Automation - use Audio Units/VST/RTAS/MAS automation from a sequencer to control Vienna Ensemble Pro's mixer (volume, pan and sends).
    • Post-effect plug-in rack for processing after pre-fader sends
    • Selective Project Merging - assemble the channels of various existing projects into one new template
    • Optional one-click integration of Vienna MIR Pro (sold separately)
    • EPIC ORCHESTRA included - a bonus 9GB orchestral library

    Vienna Symphonic Library VSLS11-6 reviews

    Ensemble PRO 6 - Mixing and Host Software (Download) is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works perfectly, very expensive for what it does. Pros : Works like a charm but then again it's a pretty straight forward application. Cons :�Price point is kind of ridiculous. No student discount. At that price, you can get a full featured DAW. No competition = high prices Other thoughts : Normally I'd take only one star off for overpriced products but VE Pro is ridiculously overpriced. In a few years when Intel's Optane 3d Xpoint develops and gets cheaper, the need for a slaves computer will drop considerably. Right now, VE Pro is still the way to go but for how long?
    Date published: 2017-12-30
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dramatically improved performance Did as advertised. Took the load off of my DAW and no more drop outs or CPU overloads. Very easy to use and setup. Used in Cubase 9.5 Pro.
    Date published: 2018-04-12
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best multiple computer Ethernet solution out there Great program for using servers to spread out CPU workload. Ridiculously simple to use.
