They tell us that Special Edition brings together the complete orchestra â€“ and more â€“ in an affordable Collection and that it is the ideal, resource-saving companion for orchestral arrangements on the laptop, or for newcomers to the world of Vienna Instruments, offering a useful cross-section of Vienna Symphonic Libraryâ€™s over one million samples.
The Standard Library includes 28 instruments and ensembles, covering large post-romantic instrumentation. It contains solo and ensemble strings, solo instruments and ensembles of the brass section, woodwinds ranging from piccolo flute to contra bassoon, harp, drums and percussion as well as celesta and the BÃ¶sendorfer Imperial grand piano. The Extended Library contains 35 additional instruments which enhance the symphonic variety of the Vienna Special Edition.
Apart from the basic articulations, all string and wind instruments include the Legato Performances characteristic of the Vienna Symphonic Library: real note transitions up to a one octave range are played automatically by the algorithms of Vienna Instruments when the user plays legato notes.
