  • Vienna MIR RoomPack 2 - Studios & Sound Stages

    The Vienna MIR RoomPack 2 - Studios & Sound Stages from the Vienna Symphonic Library features the Teldex Recording Studio in Berlin, as well as three different recording studios from the Austrian Broadcasting Corporation (ORF) Funkhaus in Vienna. The three ORF Funkhaus studios include the Grosser Sendesaal (Grand On-Air Studio), Studio Two in the Public Radio Broadcasting Building and Studio Three in the Public Radio Broadcasting Building. These world-famous recording studios and recording halls expand the flexibility of Vienna MIR PRO by adding four more spaces in which to generate your virtual orchestra's convolution reverb.

    The Teldex Studio in Berlin has been used as a recording and performance studio since the 1950s. It affords a truly unique sonic signature thanks to its 4900 sq foot sound stage surrounded with a strange amalgamation of material and surface elements. It boasts an uncanny absence of resonances and flutter echoes. The Vienna Symphonic Library generated around 6000 individual impulse responses here, which represent the studio in its entirety. Plus, the impulse responses were made from two different angles, using three typical main microphone positions.

    The next three recording studios are part of the ORF Funkhaus in Vienna. The Grosser Sendesaal is the largest hall in the Austrian Public Radio Broadcasting Building and it's highlighted by a reverb time of 1.5 seconds. The immense floor space allows for an ample sound stage that can support a full-size symphony orchestra and an organ against the back wall. RoomPack 2 represents this grand space by using four different microphone positions where two of them are on the stage and two are in the auditory section.

    Studio Two and Studio Three in the Austrian Public Radio Broadcasting Building are also represented in this RoomPack. Although similar in size, they're acoustically worlds apart. Studio Two was designed with absorbers on the ceiling for big band recordings and it features a reverb time of 0.5 seconds. Plus, it affords ultra-precise sound localization. Studio Three offers a reverb time of 0.8 seconds and was designed for a wide variety of music recording. Both studios were represented using three different microphone positions to record the whole room. Two mic positions regard the studio as the stage, while the third mic affords a listening perspective from a studio control room for more depth.

    All together, RoomPack 2 offers over 13,000 individual impulse responses from the three ORF Funkhaus recording studios, as well as 6000 individual impulse responses from the Teldex Studio in Berlin. In the ORF Funkhaus, the responses were captured using up to four dedicated Ambisonics multichannel microphone arrays. The impulses were directed from up to 50 positions into the studio in perfect steps of 60°. They were also directed to the floor and to the ceiling.

    Although multiple setups and rooms were used, RoomPack 2 captures a homogeneous sound for all the main microphone polarity patterns used. This is due to improved multichannel mixing technologies. And, since Ambisonics treats sounds arriving from every direction equally, RoomPack 2 features a relative volume between all main microphones in all four venues. This makes it even easier to switch venues while working on a MIR project. There's also more consistency in the dry signal level scaling. Plus, for enhanced flexibility, RoomPack 2 even features novel starting point-settings for most of the venues.

  • Vienna MIR RoomPack 3 - Mystic Spaces

    The Vienna MIR RoomPack 3 - Mystic Spaces from the Vienna Symphonic Library features two breathtaking Austrian churches, the Maria Strassengel Church near Graz and the Steinhofkirche Church at Baumgartner Hohe. Both churches afford spectacular, one-of-a-kind reverb and the Vienna Symphonic Library has captured each church's full potential. The pilgrimage church Maria Strassengel features a relatively small main nave and wonderful acoustics. It supports a dense and surprisingly brief three second reverb time. The Maria Strassengel's nave has been recorded from four microphone positions. The first mic is located near the altar, the second mic is in the middle of the nave, the third mic is near the main entrance beneath the organ gallery, and the fourth mic was positioned about 20' (6m) above mic 3. In all, the Vienna Symphonic Library gathered over 2000 individual impulse responses to accurately recreate the dense reverb in the famous Maria Strassengel Church.

    The Steinhofkirche Church is known for its truly unique acoustic properties, making it a holy space for musicians and churchgoers alike. It is still used for concerts today. The church produces a long, dense and crystal clear 10 second reverb time that engulfs each person as they enter the nave. It was recorded using three microphone positions. The first mic was located near the altar, the second was placed in the middle of the nave under the cupola, and the third mic was set up near the main entrance next to the organ gallery. In total, 2200 individual impulse responses were collected to accurately represent this magnificent space. Besides the three main mics, two more were positioned to the left and right side of each aisle, as well as one more in the rear. This allows you to use the Steinhofkirche in Vienna MIR PRO from each side of the main mics, letting you put a real surround ensemble into place. Plus, instruments can also be placed near the gilded pulpit to the left of the altar. This area makes a great spot for any solo performances.

    All together, RoomPack 3 offers over 4200 individual impulse responses from the two churches. And, although multiple setups and rooms were used, RoomPack 3 captures a homogeneous sound for all the main microphone polarity patterns used. This is due to improved multichannel mixing technologies. Plus, since Ambisonics treats sounds arriving from every direction equally, RoomPack 3 features a relative volume between all main microphones in both venues. This makes it even easier to switch venues while working on a MIR project. There's also more consistency in the dry signal level scaling. For enhanced flexibility, RoomPack 3 even features novel starting point-settings for both venues.

  • Vienna MIR RoomPack 4 - The Sage Gateshead

    The Vienna MIR RoomPack 4 - The Sage Gateshead from Vienna Symphonic Library is a collection of impulse responses for use with the company's Vienna MIR PRO and MIR 24 convolution reverb products. The pack features 14,000 impulse responses from two large halls and a smaller performance and rehearsal hall.

    The Sage Gateshead is a landmark building in the northeast of England that boasts outstanding acoustics due to its curved glass construction and a shell-like stainless steel roof. The large auditorium is equipped with ceiling panels that can be raised and lowered, changing the sound profile of the room. A special "spongy" concrete mix was used in the construction, with a higher-than-usual air capacity to improve the acoustics.

    Hall One
    • Wood-paneled auditorium boasting world-class acoustics and a seating capacity of up to 1,640
    • Designed to the highest international standards, it was intended as an acoustically perfect space, loosely modeled on the renowned Musikverein in Vienna
    • Equipped with ceiling panels that may be raised and lowered, as well as curtains drawn across the ribbed wooden side walls, changing the sound profile to suit any type of music - from recitals and chamber music to large symphony orchestras; from folk, jazz, rock/pop to music from around the world
    • Four different main microphone positions - one of them on the stage, two in the auditorium, and one on the first balcony at the back of the hall
    • The second balcony is also available for instruments and other signal sources
    • Venue was captured with almost 6,700 impulse responses
    Hall Two
    • Distinctive ten-sided theater with a capacity of up to 400 visitors, offering a more informal and intimate environment that makes it ideal for smaller ensembles, bands and solo artists
    • Using state-of-the-art remote-controlled wall panels, the reverberation time of the hall may be adjusted to a considerable degree, which can be emulated easily with the Reverb Time Scaling feature in Vienna MIR PRO/MIR PRO 24
    • Four different main microphone positions - one on the stage, two in the auditorium, and one about six meters above the main floor on the second balcony in the back of the hall
    • Venue has been captured with over 2,400 impulse responses
    Northern Rock Foundation Hall
    • Sound-isolated rehearsal space for the Northern Sinfonia orchestra of the Sage Gateshead with a modern wood paneled sound stage
    • Provides a homogeneous, sparkling reverb, while maintaining perfect acoustical balance and contour
    • The length of the reverb tail can be shaped extensively using the wall-covering motorized curtains, which can be emulated using the Reverb Time Scaling feature in Vienna MIR PRO/MIR PRO 24
    • The space is rendered corner to corner, from two different viewing angles, providing four main microphone positions
    • Instruments may be placed anywhere in the hall, even in audience positions, with no restrictions
    • Over 5,700 impulse responses were recorded to capture the entire venue
  • Vienna MIR RoomPack 5 - Pernegg Monastery

    The Vienna MIR RoomPack 5 - Pernegg Monastery from Vienna Symphonic Library is a collection of impulse responses for use with the company's Vienna MIR PRO and MIR 24 convolution reverb products. The pack features close to 5,000 impulse responses from the historic monastery church of Pernegg, a small village situated in the north of the "Waldviertel" region of Lower Austria.

    The open-form type of this late gothic pilaster church is rarely found in this part of Europe. Situated in a deep forest, the absence of surrounding noise is a rare feature, and the five-sided choir apse and the nave that is unencumbered by pillars contribute to its acoustics. The very balanced, clearly defined, but never overbearing acoustics make it an ideal environment for musical performances and recordings.

    There are two balconies in this nave, the lower one with the choir stalls and the upper one housing the organ. Both are provided in Vienna MIR PRO. Instrument placing possibilities are expanded by two additional HotSpots in the cloisters on the left and right sides of the choir. The average length of the impulse responses is about 6 seconds, with the average reverb time about 3.8 seconds.

    Microphone Positions
    The acoustics of this church were captured from four different microphone positions:

    Microphone 1: Near the center of the altar
    Microphone 2: In front of the altar
    Microphone 3: In the middle of the nave
    Microphone 4: Very near the choir gallery in the back of the nave, at a height of approximately twenty feet (six meters)
