MIRx is a convolution reverb extension for Vienna Instruments Pro based on Vienna’s revolutionary MIR (Multi Impulse Response) technology. It is a convenient and affordable way to integrate the stunning acoustics of renowned concert halls and sound stages directly into Vienna Instruments Pro.
Using pre-configured Multi Impulse Responses from Vienna MIR Pro, each instrument or ensemble in your Vienna Instruments arsenal will find its perfect position on stage at the touch of a button. Simply turn on the MIRx option in your player’s reverb window, select one of the presets for your loaded instrument and it will be placed and aligned at the appropriate spot on the stage. Creating a perfectly balanced orchestral sound has never been easier.
MIRx Pernegg Monastery features spatial models of the 16th century monastery church of Pernegg, a small village situated in the north of the “Waldviertel” region (Forest Quarter) of Lower Austria, near the Czech border. Its five-sided choir apse and nave that is unencumbered by pillars contribute to the extraordinary acoustics of this architectural rarity, enveloping your instruments in a vast 3.8 seconds of magnificent ambience.
MIRx Pernegg Monastery comes with over 400 individually handcrafted and masterfully pre-EQ’d presets, for all available Vienna Instruments and ensembles, that can be placed at their ideal positions around the altar. Several instruments, such as choir, harmonium and some percussion instruments, also offer the option to be placed on the choir gallery in the back of the nave, behind the microphone, adding timbral depth and variety to the overall richness of this space.
The history of Pernegg’s monastery dates back to the second half of the 12th century when Premonstratensian nuns resided there. Its well-fortified “Saint Andrew” church was built between 1500 and 1520 at the center of this complex, as excavations and the uncovering of frescos proved during the building’s first restoration in the 1960s (after being heavily damaged in the last months of World War II). The organ by Michael Prackh was installed in 1654 and is still in use today.
While all of your instruments are pre-positioned using MIRx, you may adjust the wet/dry ratio to fine-tune the mix. If you want more control over the position and other parameters only available in Vienna MIR Pro / MIR Pro 24, such as direction or microphone setup, you may upgrade to RoomPack 5 Pernegg Monastery*.
