How to Download and Install Vienna Symphonic Library on Mac
Vienna Symphonic Library (VSL) is a collection of high-quality orchestral samples recorded by members of the Vienna Philharmonic. VSL offers a variety of products, such as the Orchestral Cube, the Performance Set, and the Special Editions, that cover different instruments, articulations, and styles. VSL can be used with the Vienna Instruments player, a standalone application or a plug-in for your DAW, or with Kontakt, a popular sampler software by Native Instruments.
If you want to download and install VSL on your Mac computer, you will need to follow these steps:
First, you will need to purchase or rent the VSL products that you want from the official website: https://www.vsl.co.at/en/. You can also download free demo versions of some products to try them out before buying.
Second, you will need to create an account on the VSL website and register your products using the serial numbers that you received via email. You will also need to download and install the eLicenser Control Center software from https://www.elicenser.net/en/latest_downloads.html and activate your licenses using a USB eLicenser dongle or a Soft-eLicenser on your computer.
Third, you will need to download and install the Vienna Download Manager software from https://www.vsl.co.at/en/MyVSL/Download_Manager. This software will allow you to download the VSL sample libraries from the VSL servers. You can choose which products and which formats (Vienna Instruments or Kontakt) you want to download. You can also resume interrupted downloads and verify the integrity of the downloaded files.
Fourth, you will need to install the Vienna Instruments player software from https://www.vsl.co.at/en/MyVSL/Software_Installer. This software will allow you to load and play the VSL sample libraries in standalone mode or as a plug-in for your DAW. You can also download and install additional software tools, such as Vienna Ensemble, Vienna MIR, Vienna Suite, etc., depending on your needs.
Fifth, if you want to use VSL with Kontakt, you will need to install Kontakt or Kontakt Player software from https://www.native-instruments.com/en/products/komplete/samplers/kontakt-6-player/. You will also need to add the VSL sample libraries to your Kontakt library using the Add Library function in Kontakt. You will need to locate the folder where you downloaded the VSL sample libraries in Kontakt format and select it. You will then need to authorize the VSL sample libraries using your serial numbers in Native Access, a software tool that manages your Native Instruments products and licenses.
After completing these steps, you should be able to use VSL on your Mac computer with Vienna Instruments or Kontakt. You can find more information and support on the VSL website or in the user manuals of each product. Enjoy creating beautiful music with VSL! aa16f39245
