Thanks so much for the very nice ponticello freebie, VSL team ! It is great to see that the Dimension Series is further extended and these were the most missed articulations. I hope there will nevertheless still be a complete sul ponticello package in the future including the other articulations (legato, portamento, repetitions, ...) included in DS1-3. I am sure many users would pay for this.

Hi Bill, 

It is now marked in a better way: NEW Dimension Strings Bonus - Library Download

Do you have the VI Complete Bundle registered?

Best, Paul

Hi Paul, Isn't it past your bedtime? :)

Yes, I have the complete bundle registered. Still not showing up. I had no problem with the SY version.

Hi Bill, 

We will check what's wrong with the VI Dimension Strings. Meanwhile, please contact us directly via , we will send you the missing download file. 

Ideally, include a quick screenshot that illustrates that the file is indeed not there... always good to have proof when reporting bugs. 

Best, 
Paul

Was this bonus supposed to be only for Complete bundle users?  I was able to download the Synchronized Dim Strings Bonus a few minutes ago, but now it doesn't appear in MyVSL anymore...which is strange.  I don't see any dim strings bonus for VI either.

You're welcome 

Thanks for the update - we believe that might have been a caching problem with certain browser (Safari is the main suspect). 

Best, 
Paul

After playing these sounds for some time, I have to say that the samples are simply gorgeous. In the other libraries the ponticello is sometimes a bit on the harsh side, but the Dimension ponticello is smooth and silky (in particular the slow tremolo, which is among my favorite sounds in the entire VSL). 

Only the present programming does not yet entirely match the high quality of the samples. While things are fine when velocity X-fade is turned on, once turned off there are dramatic volume steps (~15dB) between the different velocity layers in several patches - even for staccato where I usually wouldn't use velocity X-fade. I am sure this can easily be fixed in an update to make these patches as playable as these samples deserve.

Thanks again for this nice surprise !
