Vienna Symphonic Library Elements Standard


Vienna Symphonic Library Elements Standard

SKU: VSLV17 Category:
Water, metal, glass, and stone – special elements are employed in charge of sound production. This Collection offers exciting instruments like the bass waterphone, the 5-octave lithophone and the XXL tam-tam. The waterphone is definitely an unusual, evocative instrument with a diameter of 14 inches and is also considerably larger than the waterphone found in the Vienna Instruments Percussion Collection. Its larger variety of sounding rods, their increased length, the bigger opening plus the bigger resonating body with additional water, furnish the musician with more unusual sonic possibilities along with a wider variety of colors. The oversized tam-tam, with a diameter in excess of 65 inches, was treated with every one of the trade secrets, using a special nod to Stockhausen’s opus “Mikrophonie” and others. It absolutely was struck with metal rods, cardboard and jigsaw blades, hit and rubbed with chains, and manhandled with fly swatters, an egg cutter, and even a massaging rod. The bottles within this Collection are blown – with articulations including sustains and flutter tonguing. The 18 GB Elements Collection also features musical glasses, a glass harmonica plus a verrophone.

Your purchase also entitles you to definitely download the free Vienna Instruments player software that includes the Vienna Ensemble mixing and host software.
The Elements Full Library contains 16 GB of uncompressed sample data in 44.1kHz/24-bit. Because of a cutting-edge optimization process, the Vienna Instruments engine decompresses the samples in real-time, so they take up only 11 GB of space in your hard disk. Please be aware: Even though you licensed the conventional Library only, the entire Library of the Collection gets attached to your hard drive since Standard and Extended Library can’t be separated because of structural database requirements.


Glass instruments: Staccato, portato, sustains, trills, tremolo. Glass harmonica, verrophone and bottles may also be enjoyed mallets.

Lithophone: Left and right hand strokes, muted strokes, tremolos and chord tremolos enjoyed five different mallets. Special effects include strokes with fingers and fingernails, bowed notes, and notes played with stones and needles around the sound bars for shatter effects.

XXL Tam-tam: Single hits (rim and middle), short and long tremolos (open, muted, crescendos & diminuendos), effects.

Bass Waterphone: Staccato and portato variations, sustains, repetitions, crescendos, tremolos, arpeggios, glissandos, hotrods, wood mallets, strokes.
