Dear All,

Do we need a usb key for Special Edition Download Collections?

If not, as I am using VSL just solely for sequencer to make film score, does it mean that I can use it directly with Logic, Cubase or ProTools?  Do I need any software like Kontakt?

Thanks a lot in advance.

Yes, you will definitely need the Key. Either Vienna Key or any other Synchrosoft Dongle

sorry

VSL SE (no extension), Vienna Smart Orchestra
Sopranos, Flute2, Fanfare Trumpets
Synchron Strings
VE Pro 7
VI Pro + MIRx
Cubase 9

You will need three extra things:

  1. The Vienna Instruments Player (free with any VSL sample product)
  2. A suitable protection device. Either a Steinberg key (formally Syncrosoft) or Vienna Key. If you have a Cubase dongle, that will do fine.
  3. The latest eLicenser software, free form the eLicencer website

thanks a lot, DG and gabriel81.

Let me see if I understand completely.  Say, I purchase SE Strings only, and then I can download Vienna Instruments Player free.  Am I correct?

Also, as I owe Cubase SX3, which is a very old version, but it does come with a Steinberg key, so in this case, I don't need to purchase Vienna Key.  Am I correct?

As I purchase, say, only, SE Strings, I will have the suitable eLicenser software free from the website.  Am I correct?

Therefore, it seems to me that I don't need Kontakt anymore in order to use Cubase or ProTools.  Am I correct?

Lastly, can anyone tell me if I can use Cubase SX3 with Special Edition and Vienna Instruments Player on my intel-based iMac?

Thank you very much.

 Vienna Instruments player free download - yes

Cubase dongle with Vienna library - yes

eLicenser software free download - yes

No need for Kontakt with new VSL libaries - that is correct (though old Kontakt libraries will not work in Vienna Instruments Player)

VSL on iMac - can't help you there, I'm on PC, but from general words on the forum probably OK, but you'll need a Mac user to confirm this

 Look, the only dubious part about all of this is SX3 on an Intel Mac. If you know that this works, then you're good to go. However, I would check that up with Steinberg first.
