  • Big Decision: Buying the MIR Pro / VE Pro 5 Bundle right now or wait for MIR Pro SE?

    Currently I’m testing MIR Pro on my system, and even though I’ve only got 12 gigs of RAM, everything seems to be running fine, and I really like the sound and the possibilities. Great work, VSL team!

    But there’s a difficult decision for me coming up right now. I’m tempted to buy the MIR Pro / VE Pro bundle, but then again, it’s a lot of money (for me, it’s just a hobby after all, I’m not a pro), and maybe I should wait until MIR Pro SE will come out, as I won’t need surround sound options and could live with the reduced capabilities of MIR Pro SE. I could invest the rest of the money in Vienna Suite.On the other hand, having all the rooms of the Vienna Konzerthaus would be cool. But then again, MIR Pro SE will probably not be bundled with VE Pro 5 then, will it? So I would have to buy VE Pro 5 separately.

    Ok, I think that’s a decision I’ll have to make on my own, right?



  • Welcome Michael,

    yes, I would say this is a decision you will have to make yourself. But it was interesting to follow your thoughts nonetheless. ;-)

    Maybe it helps to know that MIR Pro SE (or whatever a stripped-down version of MIR Pro will be called then) won't be available soon. My rough estimation is February 2012. I don't know about any bundles planned for its release.

    Kind regards,

  • Hello Dietz,

    thank you for the update on MIR Pro SE! I will run some more tests with my demo licence until next week and decide until december 15th :). If my machine can handle it (I won't be running more than 20-25 MIR Icons / instruments), I think I will buy :)

    Kind regards,

  •  Dietz,

    thank you very much :) I guess my winter will be gorgeous indeed. With my rather small orchestral setup, everything is working just fine (even with only 12 gigs of RAM), and I just love the possibilities and the overall sound of it. Thanks a lot to everyone involved in the creation of this wonderful product. And it keeps me creative, too ;) Just wanted to experiment a little bit and try some sounds and ended up with creating a complete little 5-minute orchestral piece from scratch :)

    Kind regards,
