Vienna Instruments Mir Pro
Multi-Impulse Response convolution
*This software requires at least one RoomPack to operate - choose one from the drop down menu above.
Vienna MIR PRO is a network-capable mixing solution for Mac and PC, based on Multi Impulse Response convolution. Its direct connection with Vienna Ensemble PRO 5 allows for a seamless integration with any audio production environment. Each audio signal can be routed into Vienna MIR PRO and delivered in stereo or in various surround formats on up to 8 output channels after processing.
Vienna MIR PRO merges all parts of the creative process – composition, orchestration and mixing – into a single intuitive workflow. The software offers a holistic approach to the spatial modeling of virtual orchestras, allowing the user to interact with the players more like a conductor than an engineer. Its innovative multi-parameter Control Icon replaces conventional faders and pan pots and offers concise control for positioning each instrument on the virtual stage, changing its volume and stereo width, and even rotating it within a fluid three-dimensional environment.
Vienna MIR PRO combines specific directional frequency profiles with reflectional information from every instrument, assembling all of the acoustic interactions into an accurate and satisfying recreation of musicians playing their instruments in place and in space. Vienna MIR PRO is much more than just “a multi-sample” of a hall – and this is where it far surpasses any other convolution reverb available on the market. Vienna MIR PRO is multi-source, multi-directional, multi-positional, and multi-format.
Vienna MIR PRO provides you with a well-designed control icon that gives you an at-a-glance overview while allowing you to control almost any sonic aspect of a given instrument, quickly and intuitively.
This innovative graphical representation of an instrument and its player allows you to shape your music from the conductor’s point-of-view. Simply ask musicians to change their position, their orientation, their volume, without losing sight of the whole ensemble. Get instant information on their loudness, their interaction with the room and their corresponding sonic and spatial profiles. Forget about mixing consoles with knobs and dials, but rest assured that all of the necessary parameters are available whenever you feel the need to use them.
