Lots of new instruments
with much more velocities and dimensions
and for example super powerfull timpanis

also additional MIR-rendered ambient samples for the standard percussion, basic articulations of timpani, drums, toms, tamburin, triangle, piatti, cymbal, tam, tubulars, glockenspiel, xylophone) in original orchestral seating positions

so you have the option to arrange with ambient percussion samples during the composition/arrangement workflow, keeping CPU and workflow ressources as low as possible

Very nice - will it be handled with the same VI interface? Are there more instruments than the ones listed in the percussion details on the website?

Wow; this is just what I'm after. I do find that some of the current percussion is a bit "cultured" and it does, on occasion, need to be slightly more obnoxious.

Version 1 will be the same interface like the other instruments. But we are workig on dedicated interfaces for future versions.

The PRODUKT INFORMATION - PERCUSSION is listing all the new instruments - I think only a new TAM is not listed there, and of course the complete Pro Edition percussion stuff is included.

Speaking of MIR:
In the demo videos I missed a chapter about MIR.
Wasn't it integrated yet? Does it work in the background?
How much can you manipulate?

The MIR will be a seperate product, closely integrated with the VIs. As it it is not ready for the market yet (although we get there! Wink ...), there are no demos available yet.

... but if you happen to visit the NAMM these days, you will see a short video-presentation of our development-work.

Thanks for your interest!

Mir will definitely need it's own dedicated machine to run it correct?

what would you attempt to do if you knew you could not fail?

You can count on it. It's been confirmed on several occastions. So unless osmething has changed thats likely the optimal way of doing it.

A matter of time Smile

If I look at when I heard the first time of MIR and on what computer I was working at that time and on what computer I work today - well .... So what will computers be able to do the time MIR is released?

Well -I'm really hoping for a release of MIR in March or April. One of the reasons I'm getting the new VI is for its intergration with MIR. So I would be sad if it was released much later

For me MIR seems interesting but I'm not sure it'll be essential. One of the major plusses of the VI VST approach is how well it will integrate into my sequencer (Cubase SX). This means it will be much much easier to route individual VIs into FX tracks, add individual inserts, vary sends etc. Sure, MIR will be great but don't neglect the power of a VST.

The MIR will most certainly need its own machine (try to run more than 20 unoptimized convolutions on your most recent CPU, and tell us how you scucceeded...). Steff3 is right: The later we release, the stronger the available CPUs will be (and the luckier are our users with the MIR's performance Ick! )

Regarding mixing and additional FX like dynamics or EQs: You will have the opportunity to integrate your plugins into the MIR itself, as long as they comply tightly with the VST-standard tightly. As i wrote before, the MIR is meant to be a mixing-frontend, not just "another" effect.

To Christian Marcussen: Spring would be the favorite release date for us, too, but we won't overhast it now in the final stage. So please don't count on it, and don't take this as an announcement.

Kind regards,

Get a couple of drinks down them and question their sense of timing - they'll be as obnoxious as you like then.... [Wink]
