The Vienna Symphonic Library has updated their complete range of software products, making them compatible with Avid's new plug-in format AAX Native. In addition, the new version of Vienna Instruments PRO comes with a brand new Remote App that converts iOS and Android tablet PCs into external MIDI controllers for Vienna's proprietary sample player. Registered users have access to the updated versions at the company's User Area, free of charge. New users may order full-fledged 30-day demo
versions at the Vienna Symphonic Library web shop. Here's the details in VSL's own words:
Tablet PC as Customized MIDI Controller
The latest version of Vienna Instruments PRO comes with a customized, wireless touch-pad
remote control app for both iOS and Android tablet PCs. Articulation switches and fader
movements for various parameters such as Master Volume, Velocity Crossfade, Expression,
Tuning, etc. can be controlled and recorded instantly in real-time, and even multiple faders
can be moved simultaneously. Customers may send key switch commands and controller
data for Vienna Instrument PRO instances to multiple computers from just one tablet – the
Automatic Activation Mode displays the Vienna Instruments PRO instance that is being
performed via MIDI. When the APP Sequencer (Vienna Instruments PRO's internal Auto-
Playback and Pattern Sequencer) is activated, additional control options for switching
chords, voicings and patterns become available.
AAX Support for all Software Products
In addition to general improvements, all software products of the Viennese company such as
Vienna Instruments, Vienna Instruments PRO, Vienna Ensemble, Vienna Ensemble PRO,
Vienna MIR PRO / MIR PRO 24, Vienna Suite and Vienna Imperial now support AAX Native,
Avid's new plug-in format for Pro Tools systems.
