  • Vienna Suite and non-VSL libraries

    Hi,

    I imagine that ideally Vienna Suite is produced to integrate well with all VSL but I have a number of non-VSL libraries and am very taken with Suite to be my only reverb. Has anyone had experiences good or otherwise as to how well it behaves with non-VSL?

    Many thanks,

    Patrick


  • Hi Patrick, 

    It works great. Iยดll send you a demo license that lets you check both Vienna Suite and Vienna Suite Pro for 30 days, if you like.

    Best,
    Paul

    Hi Patrick,

    Just sent out the demo license, it works for VS and VS PRO.

    The software downloads can be found here.

    These demo licenses work for 30 days/30 starts.

    Once the 30 starts are used up, you can recharge them as often as you like by clicking "Maintenance" in the eLicenser Control Center (within 30 days).

    Best,
    Paul

    Hi Partick,

    I'm by no means an unbiased source for information, for obvious reasons ... ๐Ÿ˜‰ ... but maybe the following story underpins the usefulness of Vienna Suite for other tasks than Vienna Instruments:

    Depending on where you live, you might have heard of the world's largest music TV show, the Eurovision Songcontest. This event is now over 60 years old and takes place in another European country each year. About 200 million people around the globe usually watch the Grand Final, a bit less the two semi finals on the days before. In 2015, the ESC took place in Vienna, because the Austrian entry of 2014 has been the winning song ("Rise Like A Phoenix" sung by Conchita, mixed by Yours Truely ๐Ÿ˜‰ ). I have been hired as the Music Mixer for the whole event, which means that every single note that went on-air was taken care for by me.

    With a few additions of some hi-end hardware and 3rd-party manufacturers, the core of my processing toolkit has been Vienna Suite. And to make a long story short: My colleagues and I heard nothing but raving comments about the sound quality we were able to achieve, and we didn't encounter a single hick-up in a (more than) mission-critical situation. ๐Ÿ˜Š

    Kind regards,

  • Dietz,

    Thanks. I'm in the UK. I know the Eurovision Song Contest. We seem not to take it too seriously over here. Even Lloyd Webber a few years ago couldn't win it nor Susie Quatro ( a very popular gutsy artist in her time). Each year I'm convinced I could put up something with a decent beat in it to get more than 'nil point'. There seems a common pattern. Start quietly with few instruments and then build up to the chorus crescendo which moves through the piece. That's the end of the quiet opening---how different to finish with it instead. For this particular event, I think if the song doesn't "grab you" in the first 20 seconds or shorter, there are difficulties getting attention. Last year I studied the "Rules" but then chickened out sending anything in as I'm on my own--and haven't got to grips with Suite. In the UK the contest can turn out to be a musical graveyard for our performers.

    I'm going to use the Suite demo and your very positive email is an encouragement.

    Many thanks.

    Patrick
