After more than five years on the market and numerous awards it was time to bring the venerable Vienna Instruments sample player to the next level. Like its big brother Vienna Instruments PRO, the new Vienna Instruments player features a modern and slick graphical user interface with a Basic and Advanced View. Major improvements include a new sample streaming core with unlimited bounce polyphony, optimized voice sharing, reduced memory usage per instance as well as a velocity histogram, loading bar and voice display. Some of the new features include the slot mixer with four Patch slots (articulations) per Cell, Auto Cell Naming, individually assignable velocity crossfades to patches as well as a built-in algorithmic reverb.
