With Vienna Jazz Drums, the Vienna Symphonic Library brings a decade of experience in sampling and software development to the art of jazz drumming. Not only did we record single hits using every conceivable drum technique and articulation, we’ve also captured the sonic variety inherent in each instrument by hitting it in multiple places.
Want to play from the center of the head to the rim of the shell? Just move the modulation wheel and the variety and liveliness of your performance becomes jaw-dropping. Special attention was given to the ride cymbal, responsible for the characteristic quarter note pulse of many Jazz tunes. Tempo, playing zone, velocity, as well as the number of times the cymbal is hit in the context of the music contribute to the sound of this versatile and sensitive instrument, rendering an absolutely authentic performance.
From accompaniment to solos, use Vienna Jazz Drums for swing and latin grooves, big band, bebop and ballads. Good news for Vienna Instrument PRO users: The new Vienna Jazz Drums includes a set of drum loops for the internal Auto Playback and Pattern sequencer (APP) of Vienna Instruments PRO.

I compose music in my home studio, and I am into orchestral and film music. Although there are numerous drum libraries out there, I wanted the VSL one knowing their excellence in samples! The sound quality is outstanding! Would definitely recommend it!
I use these products for educational purposes and as compositional tools.
Good product, as all from VSL.

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.
