  • MIR PRO: Around the corner?

    Yes: it will be ready when it's ready. So... is it ready, yet? [:D] The HERD (highly expected release date) was "first half of 2011". Is this still true?

    I'm specially eager for the LAN based solution of MIR PRO. Right now, all my VSL stuff is on a slave server (without any soundcard) connected with VE PRO to my DAW, so I can't even test MIR. [:'(]

    Second question: Will VE PRO become obsolete if you use MIR PRO?

  • Thanks for your interest, Mon-art. MIR Pro is around two corners ;-). "First half of 2011" is still our goal, although it might be some kind of photo-finish.

    VE Pro will not be obsolete, quite on the contrary. You will be able to use VE- and MIR-features within one application.

  • Excellent ! [B]

  • Dietz,

    I was hoping you wouldn't mind me asking one question about MIR Pro as I will be definitely using it.  Will the "requirements" for the machine increase all that much if any to use MIR Pro as they are currently with the full version of MIR?  I realize that you can network it like VE Pro however I am all about single machine implementations and so I need to plan my laptop purchase accordingly.  Would it be fair to say that a machine that is perfectly running MIR full version, a sequencer and all samples etc on one machine is safe with the upgrade to MIR Pro or should we consider buying even more horse power?

    Thanks as always Dietz!


  • Form today's point-of-view, MIR Pro should have basically more or less the same system requirements as Vienna MIR. Due to the fact that you will want to use all the new features too, you may still need more power in the end. ;-)

  • What I'm hoping for is to be able to use MIR Pro as some sort of insert, so that I can render my virtual instruments to audio, feed them into MIR and get whatever stems I need out. As my computer can't run my template in the current version of MIR at any buffer, I'm hoping that removing the VSTi part of the equation will mean that I don't have to upgrade my studio again this year.


  • I think you will love MIR Pro, Daryl. :-)

    Aroused isn't the word, I'm all pointy like a strategic ICBM![:P] You have a fantastic thing going, Dietz.

    Btw, what do you mean with:

    @Dietz said:

    2 corners? Photo-finish?

    If first half of 2011 is your goal, that means you have 56 days to get her out into space - which makes me a very happy camper![:D]

  • Guys, this is software development! ;-)) What I was trying to say is that MIR Pro is on its way, but I can't promise that we will be ready not later than the end of June. Thanks for your patience!

  • Hi there,

    It is the first time I am writing in this forum.

    My question is the next>

    I am running an Accel3 ProTools system and MIR on the same computer.

    a supermicro DP Motherboard X8DA6 / 2 x XEON CPU E5620 @ 2.40GHz / 28GB Ram.

    I am allocating 8 cores for MIR and 8 for PT.

    Will this be suficient enough for MIR Pro? And ...How could I allocate in the best possible manner the resources of this machine in order to keep PT and MIR happy?

    Please advise

  • Welcome ys_11062, thanks for your interest in Vienna MIR and MIR Pro.

    You are most certainly aware of the fact that you will need a 64-bit OS to use MIR. 28 GB should be plenty for the typical "big" project, but maybe not when ProTools does a lot of RAM-intensive jobs too. 8 cores will make MIR happy, as long as you don't reach for really dense arrangements in multi-channel formats. The guidlines for optimum resource management will be in MIR Pro's manual (... please remember, we're still in Beta-phase).

    BTW .... RAM size is not the only crucial parameter, but also its bus speed. The quite unusual size of 28 GB makes me suspect that there could be a bottleneck somewhere, depending in your specific configuration. - I would have to ask our local IT-gurus for an educated opinion, though. :-)

    Kind regards,

  • Therefore I am assuming that there will be a reasonable upgrade path for users who own MIR, and perhaps for those who own both MIR and VE pro? [:)]

    It has already been stated that there will be an upgrade path for current MIR users. However, as there was no discount for VE Pro users when getting MIR, I wouldn't hold your breath on that one.

  • The only reason I mentioned it since Dietz said that MIR pro would be like MIR and VE pro in one application. So I thought...

  • That's obviously a question for our marketing team, but I can assure you that I will stick up personally for very reasonable up- and crossgrades for our loyal customers.

    BTW ... it won't be the "VE Pro" you know by now that MIR Pro will use as underlying platform (... hint, hint ;-) ...).

  • Thats good news! Can't wait:)

  • Hi Dietz thank you for the reply.

    I am on 64bit and I will give a look at the bus speed. For the time being the projects are quite OK (around 16 instruments in MIR and 24-36 audio channels in Pro Tools). I do not expirience problems. 

    I did ask about MIR Pro because I am producing in music combine ethnic instruments(PT) and Symphonic sound (MIR). I would love to have all the sound in the same space though.

    I have two more questions:

    a) when I uncheck Natural Volume and try to re-edit the Instrument Profile the Natural Volume is still Checked though the Volume is changed.

    b) After starting MIR some times apears the Ensemble Pro (under MIR) some times does not. Do I something wrong?

  • ad a) Natural Volume - this is by design. The "Natural Volume" is meant to be used as a starting point and is only available when instantiating a new instrument within MIR. You are right that the fact that the option stays selected visually once you have changed the volume according to your needs might be misleading. - With MIR Pro, you will be able to return to this reference point at any time.

    ad b) This shouldn't happen. Are you able to reproduce this behaviour consistently? - In any case, it doesn't hurt the actual function of MIR.

    Kind regards,

  • Hi Dietz,

    its not consistent and I have no problem with MIR. I just did not understand.

    Thank you any how
