Hello everybody, 

New instruments for the Vienna Smart Orchestra are now available, AND we are offering introductory prices for BOTH the original VSO and the new Expansion Pack. 

So our tools for "high-speed orchestration" are becoming more and more powerful, and of course the combination with our free Big Bang Orchestra is hard to beat!

Enjoy!

Your Vienna Team

Hi, 

If you have not checked out these videos, you are missing out!

I love the new style of my hero Guy Bacos... he really shows the possibilities of these libraries, and his live performances are out of this world! Thanks, Guy!

Enjoy!

Paul, I just downloaded and installed the XP files, and see that a new folder ("Vienna Smart Orchestra Expansion Pack") was created in my main VSL folder.

Should it be separated, or can I move its content inside the older "Vienna Smart Orchestra" folder, to keep things together?

Hi PaoloT, 

You can organize the content as you like :)

I'd keep the different folders separated. 

Best,
Paul

As a long time fan of Smart Orchestra (I use it for both live performances and for sketching), I really wish you had your beautiful coronet in here. It is, without a doubt, my favourite sampled instrument you guys have. I do not know why it is never mentioned when discussing the praises of VSL. In one of your videos for the expansion, you asked for instrument suggestions, well, here you go.

In addition to the coronet, Id also like to see a low brass and high brass ensemble in here. They dont need to be separated into different instruments, Trombones and Tubas mixed is just fine for low brass,

Also, phrases, where are the prebuilt phrases? This is a sketching library after all! Runs, rhythmic phrases, prebuilt chord structures, some sort of arp structure. I get it that Synchron isnt built with this functionaility, but you have it in Vienna Instruments Pro, but alas, the choices in Instruments Pro are also lacking. Its a feature with almost no presets. Now, as I understand it, prebuilt phrases are included with your complete libraries, but I do not understand not including them with the starter edition libraries. The starter edition libraries are extremely powerful and short changing them by suggesting that good phrasing just cant be done without the full set of articulations is just untrue. Sonuscore's The Orchestra Complete has fewer articulations than even the special edition core bundles and it has an arpegiiator that is just stunning and so easy to use. You really should purchase a copy of this and take a look at it, as far as orchestral arps go, there really is nothing better.

I have written tons of prebuilt runs and phrases inside of Instruments Pro, including rhythmic, runs, and chorded trills that unfortunately, are suck in Instruments Pro and cannot be used in Synchron Player that I use all the time (I have even written a few canned fanfares that I use for live performances from time to time).

Hi, 

Thanks for your input, we'll definitely take all suggestions into consideration.

An Arpeggiator is also high on our wishlist, let's see when we can make time for such a task! 

Best,

Paul, thank you for your answer.

As for the arpeggiator, I think porting a modernized version of the APP Sequencer to Synchron Player would solve several issues.

And if you upgrade the APP Sequencer for Synchron Player, please don't forget to port it back to VIPRO!

Hi Paul

Will there be expansion packs for Vienna Smart Spheres as well ? It would be cool!

Hi, 

There will always be more with VSL. Good products take a little time, but we will get there 

The APP Sequencer... I don't want to burst anyone's bubble there, but this super-advanced sequencer will most probably (=99.9%) stay a VI Pro exclusive feature. 

It's great to see that you are using it!

Best, 
Paul
