In the last VSL Newsletters there is an offer to get the Vienna Smart Orchestra as registred user of Vienna Special Edition Vol. 1(I am one...) for €95 until 31. of Jan.. But if I log in that discounted price is not shown.

Great news! I was very excited when I saw the new key range/display adjustment feature. Unfortunately we still cannot shift (translate) the key range on the virtual keyboard and define ourselves the keys we want to use for a given instrument (for instance C5-C6 instead of C4-C5)... :(

This is a bummer for people who want to design their own preset and do not always use an 88-key keyboard. I could use a 5-octave keyboard and choose the instruments I want to play if I had this feature which, IMHO, is not more difficult to implement than the one that's just been added... not to mention when you want to use simultaneously (but with different notes) instruments with overlapping key ranges...

Or did I miss something?

Smart Orchestra is a very well-thought raw painting tool. What I miss is a solo cello, probably the instrument I use the most for melodies. Maybe it will come, with an update?

Hi PaoloT,

Our Smart Orchestra is indeed a great tool for quick sketches, but of course our bigger collections contain MUCH more articulations and also instruments. It's very possible that we will add more instruments, maybe in an additional version. 

You can already get our incredible Solo Cello 2 right now, which works with our Vienna Instruments player! 

This video will show you some possibilities of our more advanced collections. 

Best, 
Paul

Paul, thank you for your answer. I'm lucky to own all the VI instruments. But having them integrated in Smart Orchestra is a different thing, where you have everything immediately under your fingers. It's like a piano with black and white keys replaced with multicolor keys.

Hi Paolo, 

HA! Should have checked before. 

I love the comparison, might quote you on that one!

Best,
