  • Vienna Symphonic Library and GPU Audio Announce Collaboration

    Great news, especially for MIR 3D! :-) We are excited to announce a brand new collaboration with GPU Audio who are making waves in the audio technology field, processing high fidelity, ultra low latency audio using graphics cards.!GPU_Audio

  • Das es diese Kooperation mit VSL und anderen erlesenen Herstellern geben wird, war vor ein paar Wochen bereits auf Sonicstate nachzulesen. Ein wenig ernüchternd finde ich jedoch, dass es sich bei dem Projekt um Vienna MIR handelt. So ist die Performance auch ohne GPU Audio bereits gut. Ich dachte eher, dass die VSL exzessiv die Time Stretching Performance des SY Players auslagert (also den Rendering Prozess). Das wäre viel nötiger als MIR. Daher ein wenig schade!


    Edit: Andererseits fällt mir ein, dass es dein heiligstes aller Vorhaben war, die Icons sich  „live“ bewegen, tanzen und springen zu lassen. Das ist natürlich dann realisierbar. Insofern: Glückwunsch hierfür!


    The fact that there will be this cooperation with VSL and other exquisite manufacturers could already be read on Sonicstate a few weeks ago. However, I find it a little sobering that the project is Vienna MIR. The performance is already good even without GPU audio. I rather thought that VSL excessively outsources the time stretching performance of the SY player (i.e. the rendering process). That would be much more necessary than MIR. A bit of a pity, therefore!


    Edit: On the other hand, it occurs to me that your most sacred of all intentions was to have the icons move, dance and jump "live". That is of course feasible then. In this respect, congratulations!

  • No need to complain, I wrote "especially for MIR 3D", not "exclusively". ;-) MIR 3D just happens to be the obvious first step in this development.

  • Hi Dietz, 

    This is great news, at the end of the video with Paul it says "coming soon". Does that mean in the next few months or will it take longer than a year. The reason I ask is I would like to upgrade my video card but I want to purchase something that will be compatible with this new technology. Would something like a gtx 1650 suffice?

    I am assuming you must be beta testing some this now, if not I will wait to get a new video card when more info  is available.



  • This is brand-new stuff for us, too. We'll let you know as soon as we have reliable facts and figures to offer!

  • Will those card will be available for Mac and PC users ?

    Well ... Unix won't help a lot! ;-D

  • I'm wondering if I've understood the implication of this correctly.

    It looks as though MIR Pro's rendering time will be sub 2 ms or less than 88 samples at 44.1khz.

    This would in effect mean even playing percussion in realtime with instruments inside a MIRPro room should be possible ?

    It's pretty good now - but appears to be about to take a huge step forward in terms of performance ?

  • You're spot-on. :-)

    Please don't mistake the following lines as announcement, they are just expressing my own expectations: I hope that we will be able to keep MIR's own buffer size at 0 and the system latency at really low values without sacrificing the number of instances and/or channels (3D!) per instance, while freeing up the CPU for other tasks such as sample players, other plug-ins, and so on.

    Kind regards,

  • Mir is performing well except when it is crashing because Ilok is not reliable.

    Today I was working and suddenly I had a message (see attached)

    Logic and MIR went in a dead loop

    The solution if that is happening is to FORCE QUIT MIR so you can save your work in Logic

  • Hi Cyril,

    sorry to hear that you are having problems with your iLok Cloud - it could well be that your internet connection was faulty. But in any case - please do us and yourself a favour and don't post such reports in announcement thread on a completely different topic. Would make more sense to report to VSL support directly.

    Thanks for your understanding!

    HI Dietz

    As I said I am very happy with MIR PRO 3D and I looking forward for more information about the GPU Audo

    In casse of dead loop I was giving the trick to other user so they do loose there work as I almost loose my work.

    Having force quit MIR allowed Logic to comme out of the dead loop so I could save my work 😊

    The solution if that is happening is to FORCE QUIT MIR so you can save your work in Logic

    I have a fibber connection, the problem maybe on Ilok servers ?

    Support is "au courant" that there are problems with Ilok

    Best regards

  • I don't have much more insight into these developments yet than any other user. I assume that VSL's developers have more info, but for the time being, it's actually advisable to ask hardware-specific questions directly at GPU Audio, as it's their underlying technology. 

    Kind regards,

    Hello everyone,

    The day many people have eagerly awaited since the first announcement of VSL's cooperation with GPU Audio is finally here! Boost your MIR Pro 3D audio work dramatically (up to 50% or even more) on both Mac & Windows by harnessing the full, raw power of your graphics cards!

    It couldn't be simpler: Press the "GPU POWER" button in MIR Pro 3D - and you will see how the GPU takes over and does the lion's share of processing, freeing up your CPU for other tasks.

    More plugins? More tracks? Lower audio buffer? Multiple sessions, side by side? Push the limits of your hardware by freeing up CPU resources when it matters the most!

    Both Vienna Power House and Vienna MIR Pro 3D + all 3D Room Packs are on sale right now, and you can test this new technology risk-free with 30-days demo licenses.
