  • newbie questions

    Hi All,


    I am ready to buy a couple of VSL individual instruments, but am a complete novice when it comes to the products.   A couple of questions:

    What is the difference between Standard & Full library purchases (besides the price, of course!)?  Is the Standard Libray adequate, with enough data?  I know that depends on what I want to do with it, but I don't yet intend to create finished products, ie, film scores, etc.

    Does VSL provide a free sample player with purchase?  If not, are there no proprietary players that will work?

    I see that 'shipping' to the USA is 25 euros.  Could that be correct?

    Thanks for your help!

  • Hi Darrell,

    the full library contains more articulations. Look at the "Sample Content" tab on the specific product page for what you want / need.
    Every instrument contains a licence for Vienna Instruments Player. You can use VSL libraries only with this player (and the pro version of it).
    The library is download only; nothing will be shipped. But be aware that you'll need a eLicenser USB-Key. You can purchase it wherever you want.

    Best, Ben
