The Vienna Instruments - Symphonic Cube Standard Edition from Vienna Symphonic Library, is a collection of 10 "Vienna Instrument" libraries, covering the entire gamut of orchestral instruments. By simultaneously managing their own in-house sample and software development, Vienna Instruments have created a unique marriage of processes, linking samples and performance algorithms for stunning ease-of-use and authenticity.
The Vienna Instruments user interface is clearly arranged and includes pre-configured patches for immediate playability with no learning curve. The interface uses a powerful proprietary streaming audio engine that can load up to 3,456 articulations (patches) on one MIDI channel.
Load times are extremely low and sixty-four stereo voices per instance can stream from the hard disc. A RAM optimizing utilities clears unused samples out of RAM. Users can easily create their own instruments, using "drag and drop" functionality, and the instrument provides the ability for velocity crossfades and release control to be switched on or off in real time.
VSL's proprietary "Performance Detection" system analyzes intervals, repeated notes, patterns and even speed in real-time and automatically summons the appropriate articulation or nuance.
