The conservatoire oboe – better known as the French oboe – became internationally accepted as standard in the 20th century. The bell of the French oboe is gently flared, while that of the Viennese oboe is bell-shaped. The French oboe has a very assertive sound that can distinctly be heard in the orchestra, whereas the Viennese oboe tends to blend in more with the overall sound.
The Standard Library of the Download Instrument contains all of the French Oboe samples of the as well as some additional articulations. The Full Library offers the complete articulations on par with the ones of the big DVD Collection Woodwinds I Extended Library. Please find a detailed list of included playing techniques under the menu item Sample Content.

According to VSL this Library is a renewned or refreshed (or whatever they call it ;-) version of my older (Horizon?)-series, way back to *** Since then, I tried several Oboe-Libraries. And although promising and (of course) highly recommended these products were not able to reproduce and/or replace the VSL-sound. So, why not buy this improved version... And I did. More complex engine, but again that lovely sweet sound. I still love it.
Best Oboe out there, very nice vibrato.
Du choix, ce qui est bien.

Vienna Instruments require the ViennaKey!
This USB protection device by eLicenser (by Steinberg, formerly Syncrosoft) is not included in any collection, it is a separate item you have to get additionally. So you’ll have to order at least one ViennaKey with your first purchase. It will be put inside the shopping basket automatically but can be deleted if not required. Customers who order the complete SYMPHONIC CUBE will get one ViennaKey for free (not shown in the basket). If you already own another eLicenser USB protection device (e.g., from Steinberg or Arturia), you can use it for the VIENNA INSTRUMENTS, too. Each dongle can store up to 100 product licenses.
Additionally an internet connection on any computer is required to authorize a VSL product.
