The Vienna Special Editions are Vienna's resource-saving, affordable all-in one orchestra libraries with a cross-section of their 1.5 million sample archive. With the addition of the new Collections, Vienna Symphonic Library's entry-level offerings now include the whole variety of symphonic instruments and much more. The Vienna Special Editions comprise common and rare, baroque and contemporary instruments, with basic and advanced playing techniques, executed by Vienna's finest soloists and ensembles from the city's famous orchestras.

The new Special Edition Volume 3 "Appassionata & Muted Strings" includes the cinematic Appassionata Strings section with a staggering 56 players and "con sordino" (muted) recordings of the company's multi-award winning Solo Strings and Chamber Strings. The Special Edition Volume 4 "Special Winds & Choir" features the Vienna Choir as well as 15 additional woodwind and brass instruments that are not included in any previous Special Edition Collection, such as bass flute, heckelphone, Fanfare Trumpets, cornet, flugelhorn, euphonium and cimbasso. The new Bundles are the Special Edition Complete Bundle and the Special Edition Core Bundle, both available at reduced prices when compared to purchasing the included Collections separately.
