  • VI Solo Strings + W2K [was: Horizon Solo Strings Question]

    Are the samples in the Horizon Solo Strings library 24 bit samples?

    If not, what VSL product should I consider if I am interested in 24 bit solo string samples?

    Thanks

  • All Horizon products are 16 Bit.

    All Vienna Instruments products are 24 Bit,  so Vienna Instruments Solo Strings  should be perfect for you.

  •  Will the Vienna Instruments Solo Strings library work with W2K or does it require WXP?

  • works flawlessly with W2K, though i'd recommend SP4 (service pack 4) and you should avoid to have the giga-tweaks applied (mainly the memory managemnt tweaks) - that's something VI does not like

  • cm,

    Thanks for your answer. Let me be clear on this because I initially started the thread with questions about Horizon Solo Strings (which are 16 bit) and I am now interested in the Vienna Instruments Solo Strings (which are 24 bit).

       The Vienna Instruments Solo Strings (24 bit) works on a W2k platform. Right?

    Thanks

  • Do the Vienna Instruments Solo Strings library (the 24 bit library) work on a W2k platform? (Not the Horizon solo strings 16 bit.)

    Anyone doing this combination? I'm interested in hearing your thoughts on this.

    Thanks.

  •  Thanks PolarBear. The link you provided is from an earlier post of mine and I want to clear up the confusion because I started that previous post by asking about Horizon solo strings.

       Do you know from experience that VI Solo strings works with W2K?

     I am sorry to sound redundant, but I want to be clear about this.

    my comment was a direct reply to your question and both referred to the Vienna Instruments (VI) version - at least that is how i understood it.

    the horizon series solo strings cannot be used with a Vienna Instruments player - they need a sample player supporting the available formats.

    besides it is a real mess meanwhile to setup W2K (trillions of updates) to me a W2K system even feels slightly more *responsive* than XP - the internal versioning (W2K = NT5.0, XP = NT5.1) makes clear how close they are
