Special Edition Vol. 2
The Special Edition Volume 2 (former labeling was "Special Edition Extended Library") contains 35 additional instruments that enhance the symphonic variety of the Special Edition Volume 1.
All string and wind instruments offer Vienna Symphonic Library’s famed Legato Performances – real note transitions, smoothly and authentically performed by the algorithms of the Vienna Instruments software player. Single note articulations include staccato, détaché, sustained, sforzato, tremolo, and pizzicato.
You may expand the instruments of the Special Edition Volume 2 with additional articulations, available in the Special Edition Volume 2 PLUS.

Vienna Instruments require the ViennaKey!
This USB protection device by eLicenser (by Steinberg compatible) 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 or Steinberg eLicenser with your first VSL purchase. Each dongle can store up to 100 product licenses.
Additionally an internet connection on any computer is required to authorize a VSL product.
