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.
The clarinet was integrated into the symphony orchestra during the Viennese Classic period in the second half of the 18th century. Today the instrument is commonly used as a solo instrument as well as in chamber music, concert bands, military bands and marching bands in almost all styles, ranging from classical repertoire to folk music, to klezmer and jazz.
While the original Vienna Instruments' Clarinet in Bb (included in the Woodwinds I Collection) features the more “classical” playing style, this German-system instrument is the perfect addition. Not only did Vienna record many vibrato articulations but they also captured bends and falls that are triggered as release samples for the utmost realism. What’s more, a unique highlight is the extensive set of almost 300 looped “multiphonic sounds”, both with two and multiple voices, opening an entirely new field for creating progressive and experimental soundscapes. These recordings were based on the book “Multiphonics” by Gerhard Krassnitzer and the patch names within the Vienna Instruments / Vienna Instruments PRO player correspond with the respective sound numbers described in this book.
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. Get Vienna Instruments PRO and Vienna Ensemble Pro 5 to add another layer of expression to Vienna Instruments and improve your workflow.
