Vienna Instruments PRO will improve your workflow dramatically. Our proprietary sample player software comes with a host of outstanding innovations that will not only make your creative process faster and easier, but also add human behavior to your music. Customize all presets and articulations to your preferred way of creating music, stack multiple instruments in a single instance of Vienna Instruments PRO, play them with polyphonic legato, and breathe even more life into the samples by controlling the performance accuracy of your virtual musicians in real-time, at the touch of a single fader.
Super fast loading-times, auto humanization, polyphonic legato, enveloped time stretching, adjustable tuning scales, built-in reverb and EQ, and a straight user interface with basic and advanced views – among so many other cool features – come together to create a powerhouse of orchestral production that will add life to your music in ways you never imagined.

*) Please note that only Vienna Instruments Collections, Single Instruments and Volumes/Sections of the Vienna Special Editions can be loaded into Vienna Instruments PRO. Former sample libraries of the First/Pro Edition, the Horizon series or 3rd party libraries (e.g., for Native Instruments’ Kontakt) are not supported.
**) The full scope of phrases and runs is available for registered users of all Vienna Instruments Collections (Full Libraries). Since the Standard Libraries and the Vienna Special Editions don’t include many of the more advanced articulations for certain musical phrases, these products are limited to using the preconfigured chords of the APP sequencer
