  • [SOLVED] tenor trombone in MIR

    I have been noticing the solo tenor trombone  in MIR has a lot of mid-high frequency and sounds odd.  The tone of the actual trombone samples is great, but the MIR preset seems somewhat strange.  I tried altering its position, directivity, EQ, and nothing does much.  I then switched to alto trombone with the same tenor samples and it sounds perfect - very mellow and natural.  Also, all the other trombones - ensemble, bass, contrabass, alto - they all sound great.  Just the tenor sounds strange and I am wondering if anybody has noticed this. 


  • Me too. Not sounding very good

  • Exactly the same thing here.


  • We will look into it - promised. :-)

    Kind regards,

  • We have indeed found an error in the implementation of the Directivity Profile of  the Tenor Trombone. Thanks for reporting, and sorry for the inconvenience.

    As a quick workaround for now, we suggest to use the Instrument Profile for the Bass Trombone instead - this is not a perfect solution, but at least close. We will of course implement the correct Directivity Profile for the Tenor Trombone in the next update.

    Thanks for your patience! Kind regards,

  • Thanks Dietz :), I just got the Tenor Trombone on the sale and also noticed this but thought it was my setup.  Thanks for verifying and letting us know it will be fixed.

    BTW: The Tenor Trombone itself is flawless - it's a bug (or actually: a simple, but well-hidden implementation error) in MIR Pro.

  • MODERATOR'S EDIT... just in case anybody is wondering: William just wrote a mail to VSL support already that something' s wrong with the forum engine - he is posting blank messages unintentionally. /Dietz


  • Update: The faulty Instrument Profile for the Tenor Trombone is fixed in the latest release of MIR Pro (Build 10683).

    The official announcement for this most recent version will be posted later today. [:-*]
