Setup

Multi-Computer Setup

A typical multi-computer setup with Vienna Ensemble Pro may look as follows:

Multi Computer Setup

Each Vienna Ensemble Pro Networked Computer needs to have a ViennaKey containing the licenses for the given Vienna Instruments Collections (Epic Orchestra on one computer) and the Vienna Ensemble Pro license connected. You will also need the content of your Vienna Instruments Collections available and assigned in your Directory Manager (described in your Vienna Instruments Manual)!

On a Mac, unzip the Vienna Ensemble Pro OS X installer and run the installation. After accepting the license agreement, you will be asked for a destination folder.

On a PC, run the Vienna Ensemble Pro WIN installer . You will also be asked for the location of your sequencer's VST plug-in folder . You can specify another directory for the plug-in, but it should remain within the sequencer's plug-in path.

Single Computer Setup

Of course this is the easiest way to use Vienna Ensemble Pro. Simply install the software, make sure your ViennaKey with the Vienna Ensemble Pro license is connected – done!

Quickstart

Ensure that a ViennaKey with a Vienna Ensemble Pro 7 license (or demo license) is connected to your master computer. Then

  1. Launch Vienna Ensemble Pro Server or Vienna Ensemble Pro Server (64-bit).

  2. In your sequencer, insert Vienna Ensemble Pro as a VST/VST3/AU/AAX/MAS instrument.

  3. The Vienna Ensemble Pro Plug-in will open. Click Connect and choose 127.0.0.1 localhost [64] (NEW), on Windows also also available: 127.0.0.1 localhost [32] (NEW).

  4. A new instance of Vienna Ensemble Pro appears – and you can start exploring right away.

To connect to a Vienna Ensemble Pro Server on a networked computer over LAN, connect your ViennaKey to your networked computer and start the Vienna Ensemble Pro Server (Win) or Vienna Ensemble Pro Server (64-bit) – then proceed with step 2 from above. Provided your network connection works properly, you will see the IP address of your networked computer instead of 127.0.0.1.
