My hopes

- drag and drop to reorder instances in a meta frame
- better color options and color palette
- better grouping of channels (like logic groups)
-- show/ hide channels in an instance or something like folders or track stacks
-- deactivate/enable channels in an instance
- tabbed interface
- AU v3
- updated gui
- under the hood improvements of course

I'd buy that list in a microsecond.... Tabs for instruments would be a godsend.

At that upgrade price it will have to present quite a few new features to be interesting to me. I am currently happy with VE Pro 5 and haven't felt a need for an upgrade.

It's out.

New Features

  • Retina (HiDPI) graphics support on both Mac and PCs
  • Tabbed instances – Improved organization with one common window for all instances, with detachable instances, re-ordering of instances, and tab-coloring for better identification
  • Frozen/Disabled channels allow unloading all plug-ins (including their allocated memory) from a selected channel, while keeping data intact
  • Intelligent auto-save functionality – Auto-saves project in desired intervals, but only when transport is stopped, so it doesn’t interrupt a playing session. Easily recover projects in the event of a crash.
  • VCA folders let you organize your channels conveniently with folders and subfolders that are easy to color-code
  • VST hosting on the Mac, allowing for full compatibility with Windows
  • Channel grouping allows assigning channels to a group, with option to link selected parameters to the entire group
  • “Raise Instance” is now a Vienna Ensemble Pro plug-in parameter to enable automation/hardware controller assignment for quick instance access
  • “Auto Raise Instance” option raises the connected Vienna Ensemble Pro instance automatically when you show the Vienna Ensemble Pro plug-in
  • New code base for about 70% less CPU usage for all internal Vienna Ensemble Pro calculations
  • Rewritten user interface code resulting in 80% less CPU usage for graphics
  • Improved multi-threading performance for increased plug-in hosting capacity
  • Redesigned, resizable plug-in window and Audio/Event Input Plug-in
  • Faster connection/disconnection times when switching between projects
  • Unified channel model – No more need to create different channels for Vienna Instruments or 3rd party plug-ins. Every channel now has the capability to be a bus, audio input, plug-in channel, Vienna Instruments, Vienna Instruments Pro or Vienna Imperial channel. Drag & drop plug-ins to any channel.
  • In combination with Vienna MIR Pro: Impulse response files loading up to 5 times faster, improved graphical performance (especially under OS X).
  • Mixer Interface Customization allows turning on or off sections in the mixer to suit your needs
  • Transmission of all keys to host – Shortcuts not in use by Vienna Ensemble Pro will be transferred to a connected DAW
  • Miniature view – Channel strips can now be further collapsed
  • Faster plug-in scanning
  • Many more usability improvements throughout the application

It looks absolutely great! VSL have literally taken a decent product and thought "Let's make this absolutely badass". However, does Asio Guard 2 in Cubase 8.5 work correctly now? That is the most important thing (in my opinion).
