  • Legacy MIR and MIR Pro side by side?

    If this question has been asked (and answered) before I apologise:

    Is it possible to have Legacy MIR 1860 and VE Pro 5 (with MIR Pro in it) on the same DAW (PC) and to choose which one you are working with?

    I am still working on a large project using Legacy MIR 1860 (with VI Pro's inside) and would like to continue doing so. However, I'd also like to test VE Pro 5/MIR Pro...

    Kind regards


  • I do so, no problem at all. Kind regards Frank

  • Like Frank wrote - there's no trouble at all. The most recent versions of legacy Vienna MIR and MIR Pro can share the *.vmi-data (a.k.a "RoomPack"), and they can even run side-by-side at the same time on the same machine, provided that ths system is powerful enough and the audio drivers allow for multi-client operation.

    Kind regards,

  • Thank you, Frank and Dietz.

    Some more questions regarding this:

    1. Legacy MIR is a standalone application, in which each instrument has to be assigned to a specific internal MIDI port and channel. I do this by using LoopBe 30. When starting my DAW and Cubase, LoopBe 30 is automatically instantiated. Does VE Pro also need internal MIDI Ports/channels (LoopBe 30)? Or do I have to disable LoopBe 30 in any way? I have not yet understood the setup of Cubase and VE Pro, since I have never worked with VE before.

    2. What is the best way to record audio coming from Legacy MIR on to a CD (as an audio file)? I know there is a way of redirecting the audio from MIR into Cubase and record it there as an audio-channel; afterwards Cubase can export the audio-channel as an audio-file and burn it on an audio CD. However, that seems to be a somewhat odd solution. Any better way? Maybe record the audio from MIR with a CD-recorder directly?

    3. Regarding VE Pro/MIR Pro: How do you burn/record the audio with these?

    Thanks in advance for any help


  • With MIR Pro you have the option to run it as a seperate stand-alone application (much like legacy Vienna MIR), or to use VE Pro / MIR Pro as some kind of "meta-instrument" directly inside the host. You won't need LoopBe30 in the latter scenario, as you will control any instrument hosted by VE Pro / MIR Pro like any other VSTi.

    Your second and third questions ask for a lengthy answer. In principle you will record or bounce your mix like you would do with any other setup without VE Pro / MIR Pro and transfer it to CD or any other delivery format afterwards.

    HTH,

    However, within the description of VE Pro/MIR Pro on the VSL-website it says:

    "Vienna Ensemble PRO 5 is the only (and most comfortable!) way to run Vienna MIR PRO; there is no stand-alone version of Vienna MIR PRO."

    Am I missing something?

    Kind regards


  • Sorry, I should indeed rephrase that: You can have MIR Pro in an instance of VE Pro that's used stand-alone.
