This listing is only for Vienna Symphonic Library Special Edition Standard Library.


This Special Edition brings together the complete orchestra – and more – in an affordable DVD Collection. It is the ideal, resource-saving companion for orchestral arrangements on the laptop, or for newcomers to the world of Vienna Instruments, offering a useful cross-section of Vienna Symphonic Library’s over one million samples.


The Standard Library includes 28 instruments and ensembles, covering large post-romantic instrumentation. It contains solo and ensemble strings, solo instruments and ensembles of the brass section, woodwinds ranging from piccolo flute to contra bassoon, harp, drums and percussion as well as celesta and the Bösendorfer Imperial grand piano. The Extended Library contains 35 additional instruments which enhance the symphonic variety of the Vienna Special Edition.


Apart from the basic articulations, all string and wind instruments include the Legato Performances characteristic of the Vienna Symphonic Library: real note transitions up to a one octave range are played automatically by the algorithms of Vienna Instruments when the user plays legato notes.


Your purchase also entitles you to download the free Vienna Ensemble mixing and host software.


The Vienna Special Edition Full Library contains 81 GB of uncompressed sample data in 44.1kHz/24-bit. Due to an innovative optimization process, the Vienna Instruments engine decompresses the samples in real-time, so that they take up only 54 GB of space on your hard disk. Please note: Even if you licensed the Standard Library only, the Full Library of your Collection gets installed on your hard drive since Standard and Extended Library can’t be separated due to structural database requirements.


The instrument groups of the Vienna Special Edition are also available as download products.


If you want to add further articulations to the instruments of the Vienna Special Edition, you might want to check out the Special Edition PLUS that is available as a DVD collection or as instrument group downloads.


Please note that you can’t expand your Vienna Special Edition DVD Standard Library with the Vienna Special Edition Download Extended Library, but only with the DVD Extended Library. However, it’s possible to expand the Vienna Special Edition DVD Collection with the Special Edition PLUS Download Collections. Check out this overview on your Special Edition expansion possibilities.


Both DVD collections – the Vienna Special Edition and the Special Edition PLUS – are available together as the Special Edition Bundle at a reduced bundle price.
