Since the year 2000, Vienna Instruments has sampled every instrument of the symphonic orchestra, and many more, to the utmost detail. For a single instrument, like the solo violin in the Solo Strings I Collection, it took more than one year of ongoing recording sessions in a custom-built studio facility, the Silent Stage, to produce over 40,000 flawless samples – an unprecedented amount of nuanced articulations, not available elsewhere. Today, the Vienna Super Package includes more than two million samples.
This library features various types of bell and bell substitutes that are used in the orchestra: Tubular bells, plate bells, church bells, hand bells, cowbells (cencerros), burma bells, sleigh bells, altar-boy bells and more. The tubular bells were originally developed as an easily portable substitute for church bells in the orchestra. They are arranged chromatically and cover a range of approx. two octaves. Although their sound was intended to be as close as possible to church bells, this target has never been reached. However, nowadays the timbre of the tubular bells is valued in its own right and particularly useful in the higher register, whereas the lower register is usually covered by the plate bells.
The flexibility, authenticity, musicality and sound quality of samples are just a few reasons why Oscar and Emmy winning composers, Grammy winning artists and music producers all over the globe, including hobbyists and music educators, rely on Vienna Instruments. Every collection comes with both the Vienna Instruments player and Vienna Ensemble.
