Vienna Symphonic Library Historic Winds I overview

  • 1Description

Vienna Symphonic Library Historic Winds I is a virtual instrument with a library that authentically captures five rare wind instruments from the Renaissance and Baroque periods—the transverse flute, Baroque oboe, oboe da caccia, ophicleide, and serpent. It provides composers and orchestrators with a palette of historical sounds that can be combined to add rich new colors to their arrangements, film scores, music productions, and more.

To help bring a realistic dimension to your performance, Historic Winds I offers a rich assortment of articulations in each preset, including legatos, crescendos & diminuendos, and repetitions, performed in various tempos and dynamics.

The library comprises 19,583 samples and is powered by the included Vienna Instruments player or Vienna Ensemble mixing host.

Note: Software requires a ViennaKey USB protection device or other USB eLicenser, if one is not already on the system (available separately).
