Vienna Symphonic Library introduces Vienna Power House


Today, Vienna Symphonic Library introduced Vienna Power House.  Boost your computer’s performance at the touch of a button! Vienna Power House is a groundbreaking add-on for Vienna MIR Pro 3D that offloads convolution processes to the graphics card in order to reduce the load on the CPU.  For a limited time, this GPU power extension is available at an introductory price of €145 (regular price €165).  More details from VSL below.


Vienna Power House currently works in connection with Vienna MIR Pro 3D and Vienna MIR Pro 3D (24). MIR’s core engine relies on convolution for placement and reverberation. This mathematical process taxes the CPU in a linear way. More audio sources, more output channels (from stereo to immersive formats), and long reverb tails may result in hundreds, even thousands of convolutions. An orchestra consisting of 80 stereo sources, mixed in 7.0.4 for Dolby Atmos, will create a maximum of 1,760 positional impulse responses and consequently the same number of convolutions (80 x 2 x 11), calculated in real-time at a preferably low latency. By lowering the CPU load by up to 50% or more, depending on your system, Vienna Power House provides you with significantly increased raw computation power at the click of the “GPU Power” button.

Vienna Power House supports M1/M2 processors on the Mac, and NVIDIA and AMD graphics cards on the Windows side. The performance benefits will vary, depending on your DAW project, the number of tracks and convolutions, buffer size, sample rate, as well as VRAM and capacity of your GPU.

You don’t need to download and install Vienna Power House separately, but you will need to update Vienna MIR Pro 3D or Vienna MIR Pro 3D (24) using the Vienna Assistant. Upon purchase activate your license in the iLok License Manager and it will unlock Vienna MIR Pro 3D’s ability to outsource its convolution processes to the GPU.
