Vienna Instruments - Woodwinds II from Vienna Symphonic is a sample-based library, featuring all of the wind instruments necessary for the realization of large orchestral instrumentations.
These include the Piccolo, Flute 2, Alto Flute, Viennese Oboe, English Horn 1, English Horn 2, Small Clarinet in E♭, Bass Clarinet and Contra Bassoon.
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 64 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.
