Special Edition Volume 5 - Dimension Strings
These fantastic string ensembles of eight violins, six violas, six cellos and four double basses feature the most important playing techniques from the popular Collections Vienna Dimension Strings I and II. They offer the articulations staccato, détaché, sustained, sforzato, legato, portamento, tremolo, pizzicato, all played without mute (“senza sordino”) and with mute (“con sordino”).
Stunning Realism Through Imperfection
The string players of these ensembles were recorded in homogeneous groups, capturing all of the human interactions and slight imperfections of a live performance. Individual microphones for each player allow you to access each voice of the ensemble separately.
Even the best musicians never play in perfect unison; slight imperfections in pitch and timing, as well as different timbres and vibrato intensities create a lively, beautiful ensemble sound. When playing as a group, musicians continually adapt to each other, and their interactions within the ensemble reveal the “magic” of a live performance. VI Special Edition Vol. 5 comes with the free Vienna Instruments player. When you use the Dimension Strings patches with the Vienna Instruments Pro player and its Auto Humanization feature, all of these nuances and variations are created automatically while simply playing the keyboard.
Since all the recorded instruments are accessible separately, you may easily switch between any number of musicians of the ensemble, from the principal, to single desks, to the full ensemble size.

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.
