Review quotes

“Every year we have to readjust our categories to reflect changes in the industry, and this is no exception. What once might have been a sound library now is more than that because it includes a playback engine. Symphonic Choirs is extremely impressive, and we're delighted to give it an award.”

— ELECTRONIC MUSICIAN

“Symphonic Choirs is an ambitious and powerful instrument capable of recreating the sound of a real choir with an incredible degree of realism. Nothing else quite delivers the control, sonic quality, and flexibility that SC offers. If you absolutely, positively must have the most natural and realistic choir (and you can’t afford to hire one), Symphonic Choirs is really the only choice, a clear Key Buy.”

— KEYBOARD

“The Symphonic Choirs package is a true breakthrough product that will forever change the way that producers work. This is not an ordinary sample library but a highly realistic and expressive vocal instrument that ushers in a new era of creative power.”

— FUTURE MUSIC

Overview

Imagine typing words into your computer, in any language, and hearing a world class Symphonic Choir sing those words in any key(s) you play "live" on your keyboard controller! Well imagine no more, that's exactly what this revolutionary "award-winning" virtual instrument does. In addition, this is the first 24-bit Choir virtual instrument to include three simultaneous stereo mic setups (close, stage and hall), so users can mix any combination of mic positions to control ambience. The Choirs were recorded in the same concert hall, by the same team as the EastWest/Quantum Leap Symphonic Orchestra and blend perfectly with EWQLSO.

To achieve the feel of a live concert hall performance, each instrument and section was recorded with three mic positions: close, stage (conductor‘s position) and hall. By selecting different mic positions, users can mix these sounds together to create any kind of natural ambience their project requires. This eliminates the need for artificial reverb.

The Symphonic Choirs Expansion (Voices of the Apocalypse content) was recorded separately, at 24-bit resolution with a single mic position.

Wordbuilder, now built into Play, is the word building software that enables Symphonic Choirs and Symphonic Choirs Expansion users to type in words for the Choirs to sing. This revolutionary software also includes a pop-down menu that includes popular pre-built phrases that you can load instantly. This is a real time saver for those on a tight deadline. The phrases have been optimized for each Choir. The phrases menu is customizable so you can add your own phrases to WordBuilder for quick and easy access. This is the most powerful vocals solution available.

Choirs (VOTA) Expansion

Symphonic Choirs Expansion
The Symphonic Choirs Expansion expands the content of Symphonic Choirs with the best samples from Quantum Leap Voices of the Apocalypse. Voices of the Apocalypse has FFF, heavy vibrato vowels that go beyond what is currently in Symphonic Choirs, so the expansion lets you crossfade from the loudest Symphonic Choirs vowels into the FFF Voices of the Apocalypse vowels. The result is a sound that can only be described as MASSIVE. Because Voices of the Apocalypse was also recorded with wordbuilding in mind, these new expansion patches also work with Wordbuilder. The Expansion also includes the ever popular Angels and Demons samples from Voices of the Apocalypse.

This is a must have expansion! (PLAY Edition of Symphonic Choirs is required).

The Symphonic Choirs Expansion was recorded at 24-bit resolution with a single mic position. The Expansion is available as an add-on for $49.5.
