Hello Everybody!

I was just wondering if there is any difference between the full version (standard + extended) of a single download instrument (e.g. Flute 1) and the same instrument included in full version of a DVD collection (e.g. Woodwinds I)?

On the website you can just read the following:

"By adding the corresponding Extended Library, all Single Instrument Downloads become full-fledged Vienna Instruments, offering the complete articulations on par with the ones of the big DVD Collections Woodwinds I, Woodwinds II and Special Woodwinds"

Does that mean there is NO difference? Perhaps differences could be reduced velocity layers (samples), articulations etc. ?

(By the way, do dvd collections really have often more velocity layers than special edition?)

If there is really NO difference between both, is it the same for brass, strings and other instruments?

Thank you in advance.

Musically

Torsten

Hello Torsten,

Yes, a Download Instrument with the FULL Library (except Special Editions, of course!) offers just the same the the instrument in a DVD Collection.

This is true for all instruments in our Download Instruments section (strings are not available separately).

The only difference: You get a separate license for each instrument, and therefore, all in all the Download Instruments will be a bit more expensive than purchasing the DVD Collection right away.

Best,

Paul

The full DVD collections do indeed have more velocity layers than SE.  SE is limited to two velocity layers, whereas the full collections can have as many as four (though some patches have less).  SE is also sampled in whole tones, while the full libraries have chromatic samples.

Thank you, that helped a lot!

Only a few short questions are still left:

Am I right that extended versions of download instruments just add more articulations to standard version? This would mean that there is no enhancement in velocity layers of standard version patches, correct?

Will there be more single download instruments from some dvd instruments in the future?

Kind regards.

Torsten

That´s correct. You can always check the Sample Content in the menu under each product shot, e.g., Trumpet in C

As we are still recording, there will always be new instruments added. But I believe you´re talking about the string instruments. I´m not aware of any plans to release string instruments as single download instruments in the near future.

Hello Paul,

Thanks a lot for your support!

I wasn't really talking about string instruments at all. I thought about download instruments like Harpsichord (from Special Keyboards) as well as some Mallets (from Percussion). That instruments in particular would be very interesting to me since I don't need the entire instrument collection included on these DVD products (which would cost me a lot of money). I don't know how much time it would take to release such a single instrument download but I'd really appreciate that! Wink

Hi,

Just curious.  I just purchased VI PRO online - Will VI PRO 2 be a free upgrade.

Thanks,

Joe
