Hi all, im not a frequent user of the forum but have been a loyal fan of VSL for the last 7/8 years.. Im not really a classical musciscian, my roots are in electronic dance music but 99% of my work now is music & sound for tv / film / adverts..

So i wanted to test out MIR as the AU componant without the need of the ensemble pro 5.. that along with the instruments pro 2 upgrade took the budget out of my range, but the adition of MIR as AU has opened it all back up again. i tend to only use ensemble for its initial volume leveling but now i dont feel like i need ensemble anymore as MIR is giving me all the option id usualy use. i also wanted to see what 24 parts sounded like so the mir24 could be an option ( i dont use VSL over a netwerk , just from my main machine )

Anyways ive spent 4 days using MIR demo & thought id share the results with you, its not to complicated, just open sustains in most cases, i tried to feature every section at some point in the 4 mins so new users could understand the range of sounds. i love listenning to the user demos on here but ive yet to find 1 that made me cry. & a good orchestra should :) so see what u think , i know its nothing compaired to some of the arrangments on here, but it does make you 'feel'. i searched on youtube for user demos of mir but could only find the vsl provided ones, so have put this up for others that might be looking for the same sort of visual demo i was last week.

Excellent video, but I like the HD version better: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=54LMX9_o9Mw ;)

Hi Marc, thanks for the nice demo! Yes ... I don't know why I missed it before.

A sidenote: You should _really_ consider using the dedicated Instrument Profiles (instead of the General Purpose profiles) as soon as you use Vienna Instruments. Right-click on the Icon, and "Guess" will select the right Profile automatically in most cases when VI is used within VE Pro. (This will also work for a multi-selection of Icons, BTW.) - You will have to do it manually when using MIR Pro Plug-In, though.

The sound will benefit from even more realism (due to the painstakingly measured frequency directivity profiles), and on the top of it you will get access to the Natural Volume Settings and the tailor-made Character Presets for most of them. :-)

The General Purpose profiles you seem for most of your instruments are meant to be used for all signals not derived from Vienna Instruments, actually.

Thanks again, and kind regards,
