VSL presents Vienna Dimension Strings, a strings library that features 8 violins (62 GB, 300 000 samples), 6 violas, 6 cellos, and 4 double basses.

It provides many articulations : three different sustain (vibrato, non-vibrato and espressivo/progressive vibrato), legato performances and portamento performances with crossfade, trill performances (legato, marcato), repetition performances (legato, portato, staccato, spiccato, various crescendos), various tremolo variations (normal, with fast attack, and slow-motion tremolos), pizzicato, snap pizzicato and col legno, fortissimo sounds with short articulations.

It also allows to create custom players groups : level and/or position in the mix for each player or desk, individual controllers for dynamic changes, presets for selecting the individual strings of each player of a group, mixing of different articulations for desks.

The violins sections are available (through download or on a 64 GB USB stick), while other sections will be provided in 2013. Full library is priced 695 euros for now (normal price is 1190 euros – standard and extended libraries are priced 595 euros each).

An audio and video demos are available.

    Vienna Dimension Strings has better bow change legato, portamento and too much better legato scripts than Hollywood Strings! It has true espressivo and portamento that was not been truly implemented in Hollywood Strings. I’m a Hollywood Strings owner (diamond version), the color of the patch is superb and bow change legato is nice (except crossfade to portamento), but if you want to make cheap soundtracks without any harmony in side of the sections!, going to buy Hollywood Strings.I have done side-by-side tracks in the same song using Vienna Dimension Strings and Hollywood Strings, and I like Vienna that has better legato performance and I’m incredibly happy about this new library.
