VSL Special Edition Collection Vol.3

The Vienna Special Edition Volume 3 (“Appassionata & Muted Strings”) features the lush and cinematic Appassionata Strings with a wide variety of playing techniques in normal and muted variations, and also focuses on “con sordino“ (muted) recordings of the Solo Strings and Chamber Strings. Additionally, you’ll find an alternative Harp to the one included in the Special Edition Volume 1.

All instruments include Vienna Symphonic Library’s famed Legato Performances – real note transitions, smoothly and authentically performed by the algorithms of the Vienna Instruments software player.

If you’ve already purchased Special Edition Volume 1 or Volume 2 and want to expand it with especially lyrical, silky shimmering string sounds, this Volume is the perfect choice. By the way, did you know that you can achieve particularly warm and lush string pads by combining “normal” strings with “con sordino” layers?

Your purchase of the Special Edition Volume 3 entitles you to download the free Vienna Instruments player software that includes the Vienna Ensemble mixing and host software.
