    Wow Herb, that is really incredible!

    It sounds indeed as a great move [[:)]]

    Btw, could you please confirm if we must own one of the of the packages you mention or a combination? (in the products page -your link doesnt' work, btw- it mentions a combination, wether your post says only one, for instance, Opus 1)...

    How many layers are included? Are there any diminuendo samples? Does this VI Gui have the same programming possibilities than the normal VI collections?

    And the last one...Discount option is still not working [[:)]]

    Best and thks,

    Iván

  • OK: one of these products...

    articulations are listed in the Product Info

    staccatos, sustains etc. 3 layers
    most perf-legatos 2 some 3 layers
    percussion instruments up to 6 layers

    best

  • I notice that it includes guitars and harpsichord - what what what
    Aren't they going to be available in full and separete packages?

  • That's extremely generous. Thank you.

    Fantastic, Herb! This is a no brainer [:)]

    I tried to pre order, but the discount is still not operational, I guess it's a matter of time, if not, let me know what or when to do it [;)]

  • Hey VSL guys -- this is a GREAT offering. Thank you.

  • This sounds like an excellent collection, and at a very good price! [:)]

    Is that articulation list in the product info complete? For the mostpart its not a bad selection at all, though the seeming lack of trills for all instruments (particularly strings and woodwinds) is a tad concerning..

    Any word on how many repetitions for short note articulations?

    What is meant by over all? Judging by the product page the discount applies to the Extended part only. It's still a good deal, but to me it seems more logical to have some discount on the Standard part since it's almost only this part which overlaps with my Opus instruments.
    This seems to be a really nice collection of instruments!

  • So, what are the articulations, specificaly of the Opus1, that are missing in this Special Edition ?
    I wonder because i suppose that now with that Special Edition, there is not going to be ever a full VI-Opus1 ?

    Also, in all the strings articulations (standard and extended) is there any sustains with no-vibrato (i.e in the Appassionata strings in occurence) ?
    Finaly, it has been probably asked already but can I use my emagic usb key to authorise VI.

    Thanks

  • nliberg, there are no discounts available for standard libraries of vienna instruments products at all.

  • michel, the dongle used for logic is an XSkey which is a proprietary product from apple (resp. emagic) - no authorizations are possible on such an XSkey except for the VSL performance tool (sample libraries exs format).

    licenses for vienna instruments are stored on a syncrosoft USB protection device, also named ViennaKey

  • Is it possible to install separate parts of the library on different computers?

    How many Vienna keys should be needed then?

    Is it possible to transfer my Cubases licenses to this new Key? My old key Cubase Key is wearing out and I'm scared to death it may finally become useless...

    Another question:

    Will there be discounts if I intend, for instance, to buy after the Vienna SE, the full solo strings?


    Thks,

    Iván

  • Damn!

    I was hoping it wouldn't be this good of a deal. Now I'm going to have to complain about something else!

    Any ideas?

  • ivan, older cubase dongles have only little space for licenses - say every key number above 500.000 is somehow safe and you would not need to purchase an additional ViennaKey.
    you can _install_ the library on as many computers you like, you can _run_ the library on the computer which has the key holding your license attached.

  • Quick question:

    Legato performances are included but I don't see repetition performances listed.

    Are the legato perf's the only performance patches included?

    Thank you, Christian, so if I wanted to use the library at the same time on two computers, I would need two Vienna keys, one for each computer?

    What about the further VI discounts? Would we get discounts when purchasing Vienna Instruments I or II after getting S.E.?

    Thks again

  • ivan, you would need two keys _and_ two licenses ...

    i personally cannot imagine there will be a discount when upgrading from the special edition to any other product. reason is IMO on one hand the absolute and relative low price of the special edition and the license would still remain active when purchasing some of the *big* vienna instruments products.
