None as yet, as far as I can find. But you can always rely on VSL to delight, even if completely by surprise :)

YEAHHHH! THAT'S MY BABY!!! Now I just hope, that it won't cost me an arm and a leg. I don't mean the software since Dietz made som hints that it won't be to expensive. I mean additional hardware! This low latency feature makes me hope you can run it alongside VE and VI. With at least one trumpet on the big stage ; ) 

Oh dear! They also made improvements to safari compatibility! I can make paragraphs now! Seems to me it's still christmas today. VSL, I love you guys!!!

What about the imperial!! I can't quite work out all the details. It's just a software piano, right? Also it is not a standard vienna instrument but a seperate standalone plugin? Will Vienna Ensemble be able to host it?

With up to 100 velocity layers it'll eat up some serious memory!  Do you think VSL will accept the Bosendorfer as a trade-in?Big Smile

I wasn't clear on the Imperial either... Looks quality though.

/Paragraph break for the sheer novelty of it.

It says "even" when using as a standalone, so have to assume that you can use it as a plugin with either VE or your sequencer.

Well, there's the hardware from which it was sampled, which is specialised, but it isn't clear to me whether our existing Bosendorfer library was also sampled from that special hardware piano but simply at lower resolution (or resampled for lower resolution).

I guess we'll find out soon whether there is a trade-in or upgrade path. But it may be that this new library is a reaction to the competition from Quantum leap's piano library -- though I was more expecting them to add a Steinway, Bechstein, or Fazioli.

I'm quite happy with what we have, but use Pianoteq for most stuff. The existing Bosendorfer library works very well for me when a piano needs to cut through a large arrangement without dominating. I haven't yet tried it for solo piano though (my CPU isn't up to real-time).

Well, maybe I have a bit a strange view of a piano in an orchestra - but it is not seldomly a solo instrument there .... I did not try it, but 7 velocity layers, no string resonance etc. do not sound as it would cut it - and I heard those comments a lot. Also no sustenuto pedal for a grand - well, sorry ... I hope their new player is aware of sustenuto ...

Steff,

I think the Vienna Imperial should satisfy your needs. We have 1200 samples per key, 100 velocity layers, soft pedal, sostenuto, repetition samples, lots of release samples, MIR technology convolution reverb and more. Everything built into a brand new optimized engine.

 1200 samples? Indifferent

Did you use a roboter for pressing the keys? That would probably make sense.

May be joking without the use of smilies :)

I was at NAMM and asked a few questions.

Apparently, MIR will require an i7 processor to run(minimum requirements). I won't give the price estimations I was given since it was only an approximate number. But it's more than Altiverb. Considering what it does, I kind of expected that though. I don't want this to seem like I'm dogging the price. I'm not. Just reporting what I found.

The piano does sound great. I got to play it for a bit. Very responsive. I can only imagine it will take a hefty machine to run, but who knows. It's a separate player though and will NOT integrate into the current player. That's the answer I got at least.

One thing I was disappointed on though, and I hope the guy was just wrong, was the apparent reverb that is supposed to be coming with the Vienna Suite. I asked about it, and the guy I asked(don't remember who, but a VSL guy) said that there will be no reverb in the Suite. The sign AT THE SHOW even mentioned a reverb. I told him that the magazine ad also mentioned it. He said it was all a typo, even the sign, and that there isn't a reverb coming. So can anyone confirm or deny this? Maybe he misunderstood? There were reports in this forum that there are more plugins, including a reverb, coming. So I'm ASSUMING that he just didn't understand what I was asking.
