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.
Due to its wide conical taper, the cornet (French: cornet à pistons) is classified as a horn instrument, even though it looks more like a trumpet. The first instrument was built around 1828 by Louis Antiine Halary in France and was primarily used in its historical function in military and marching bands. Later, the instrument was introduced to the symphony orchestra of the romantic period, replacing the trumpet in some cases.
Compared to the trumpet, the cornet has a softer sound as a result of its construction, but a limited dynamic range. As tonal response is achieved easily, the instrument has become very popular especially in music education. More advanced trumpet players may easily switch to the cornet without specific training.
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.
