Saw a great presentation on the new software by Paul at Digital Village yesterday.  Paul did a great job of showing off the software, and the new versions really provide quite a compelling case for VSL software, quite apart from whether their samples are being used or not!

The beta we saw looked pretty stable.  MIR being hosted effectively as a plugin available as a single instance against all instruments in VE opens up the sampling rate beyond 44.1k (which was a major bugbear with MIR as it exists) and offers a great number of additional possiblities for routing (both in and out), and it was suitably odd seeing MIR running inside a mac window.  Based on the performance observed (running on a Macbook and Mac Mini), a lot of effective effort has gone into tuning the performance or MIR - and the existing room packs still work on MIR, although it will be necessary to recreate any templates from scratch.

There was a whole slew of new features within VE - too many to mention.  However some of the standout features (for me at least) were the ability to change the number of samples pre-loaded into RAM (great for those with an investment in SSD drives since it reduces the overall RAM requirement with these faster drives), tile names in the matrix (pfp, PfLeg etc.), some lovely patch stacking functionality allowing ranges to be specified against each patch, which allows for some great orchestral unisons, changing timbre (and orchestration) across the range.  There was also a function for which I do not want to spoil the surprise, but judging by another thread on here will please a lot of people.

Thanks for the great demo Paul, and really looking forward to the release.

Kind Regards,

Nick.

I think that those functions are limited to VI Pro, not regular VI though.
