Overview

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 timpani, or kettledrum, is the orchestral percussion instrument with the longest tradition. It has been established as a staple of the symphony orchestra since the 17th century. Whereas in the Baroque and Classical period one pair of timpani was the standard, four (or even more) instruments in Romantic and modern works are common. The timpani is one of the rare membranophones with a definite pitch and its tuning requires extremely sensitive hearing. The intensity of performance tasks makes it essential that the timpani part in the orchestra is played by a specialist, the “timpanist”. As opposed to other percussionists who usually change instruments as required by the piece (e.g., bass drum, a-due cymbals, tambourine, triangle) the timpanist focuses on playing the timpani part exclusively.

The instrument has a range of about a sixth, a timpani group of several instruments covers approximately two octaves. The sound of the timpani blends homogeneously with other instrument groups of the orchestra. Timpani with majestic brass fanfares have their roots in history, and the combination of strings played in tremolo over a foundation of timpani rolls is a popular combination for creating dramatic and thrilling effects. Vienna Instruments' recorded single strokes, tremolos (with and without dynamics), and glissandos with various wooden and felt mallets (hard – medium hard – medium) as well as with finger strokes.

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.
