Here's a simple question, that is not easily answered. I'm wondering if this makes sense, and if the following libraries are redundant in anyway, or are they the "Complete Special Edition bundle" (not for sale as a bundle of course). Do the following 4 libraries make up the complete Special Edition?..... 1.The Special Edition Standard, 2. Special Edition Extended, 3. Special Edition Standard Plus, and 4. Special Edition Plus Extended Is this the complete package (within the Special Edition realm)..... TRUE OR FALSE???? It's hard to tell with all VSL's graphs. Thanks!!!

I think plus is the new version of special edition. I think you either buy special edition plus or special edition but not both. Then you buy the extended for special edition plus or for special edition but not both.... So like plus is the newer version of special edition. Upon examination the articulations seem to be the same.

Speical Edition comes in two forms, Standard and Extended. Standard is a collection of most of the articulations you'll need. Extended adds more articulations to some instruments (brass mutes ) along with new instruments, such as the chamber strings.

Special Edition PLUS comes in two forms, Standard and Extended. The VSL SE plus standard adds more articulations to the original SE standard library. See quote below.

"For example, while the Solo Violin’s articulations in the Vienna Special Edition include staccato, détaché, sustained, sforzato, tremolo, pizzicato, legato, and portamento, the PLUS collection supplements these with the addition of the following articulations for the solo violin: Short détaché, fortepiano, snap-pizzicato, col legno, trills 1 & 2, Repetition Performances (legato & spiccato), fast repetitions (150, 170, 190 bpm), harmonics (staccato & sustain), and ponticello (staccato, sustain, tremolo)."

The Special Edition Plus extended likewise adds more articulations to the original Special Edition Extended library.

Yeah, its comfusing. The Special Edition Bundle comes with everything.

I think the original reply contains some wrong information.

Here it is as I see it. 

SE Standard contains basic articulations for a selections of instruments

SE Extended contains basic articulations for completely different additional instruments

SE+ Standard contains additional articulations specifically for those instruments featured in SE Standard

SE+ Extended contains additional articulations specifically for those instruments featured in SE Extended 

The Special Edition bundle contains all of the above BUT you can, if you like, pay for and use just the Standard content's instruments  (which will have both SE and SE+ articulations) and at a later time buy the Extended license so you can use the Extended content's instruments (which
will have both SE and SE+ articulations)

Go to DVD products / Special Edition and Special Edition PLUS and click sample content and this will explain everything in clear table form.

Edited to correct a mistake I made (this is confusing!): the SE Extended does contain trumpet C muted which is an extra articulation of teh standard content's trumpet in C - otherwise it is all new instruments. The previous poster had this info correct.
