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 Vienna Symphonic Library held extensive castings to find 16 singers for its Soprano Choir who could sing the soprano’s whole tonal range, and also harmonically blend in with the group’s overall sound. After several test recordings, the first vocal sessions took place at the Silent Stage.
The most outstanding result of these sessions is the first ever sampled vocal Legato – the Soprano Choir’s Legato Performance Patches render these fluid notes most naturally within the Vienna Instruments player.
The articulations include the vowels “U” (ooh) and “A” (aah) as staccatos, sustains, legato sustains, crescendos and diminuendos, fortepianos and sforzatos. In addition, there are staccatos of the syllables “ra”, “sa”, and “ta”.
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.
