Features in Vienna Instruments Pro 2

The Vienna Instruments Pro 2 player loads all of your existing and future Vienna Instruments sample collections.†

While the current Vienna Instruments Player is still included as free software with any Vienna Instruments Collection, Vienna Instruments Pro 2 is available as an optional download. One Vienna Instruments Pro 2 purchase comes with 3 licenses for running the software on up to 3 computers at the same time.

  • APP Sequencer – The internal Auto-Playback and Pattern Sequencer offers a vast variety of orchestral patterns and voicings. Trigger rhythmic patterns, runs and accompanying arrangements of the whole orchestra at the touch of a single key!
  • Enabling/Disabling of Cells – Load huge presets with hundreds of VOLUME CONTENTS in no time, and without taxing your RAM. Specific VOLUME CONTENTS get loaded only when you “enable” their cells with a simple double-click. Disable cells to clear samples from RAM, while keeping all patch settings intact.
  • Auto Cell Naming – Easily identify all loaded VOLUME CONTENTS by their cell names.
  • Auto Humanization – Assign appropriate performance accuracy settings to all of your loaded VOLUME CONTENTS at once. 
  • Enveloped Time Stretching – Easily determine which part of an articulation should be manipulated and adjust the speed of a portamento or the attack of a staccato.
  • SSD ready – Load 10 times more samples into your RAM, 10 times faster, by reducing the sample preload buffer size when using Solid State Drives.
  • Scale Editor – Change the pitch of specific notes of your scales to customize your microtunings.
  • Extended Instrument Ranges – Extend the range of each articulation up to two whole tones (both in the high and low register) by simply grabbing the handles on the virtual keyboard.
  • Human Performance Control for adjusting the timing and intonation of your virtual musicians.
  • Polyphonic legato.
  • Super-fast loading times, even after cold starting. Load progress bar. You can even play the sounds while the sample patches are still loading!
  • New GUI design: Basic View for an easy overview. Advanced View displays all of the important parameters in the same window.
  • Tuning scales: You can even switch scales using controllers while you’re playing, e.g., from just intonation to an Arabic scale, or use your own scales.
  • Time stretching – works great on staccatos, runs, crescendos, etc.
  • Built-in reverb (algorithmic for low latency).
  • New options for switching VOLUME CONTENTS, e.g., sequence map and interval map.
  • Slot rack for up to 8 VOLUME CONTENTS per cell with volume slider and power panning for each patch. Stack your own powerful multi-instruments using auto voicing.
  • Separate volume control and EQ for each matrix.
  • Many options to customize your patches and VOLUME CONTENTS for your personal work-flow.
  • New browser with search function.
  • Keyboard display with 128 keys, showing all key switches, with adjustable volume zones and instrument ranges for stacked instruments.
