EastWest Symphonic Choirs Platinum Plus Vota Expansion Bundle Mac PC eLicense

Includes The Symphonic Choirs Expansion (Voices of the Apocalypse content)

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, the Platinum edition (Gold edition has one mic position and is 16-bit) 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.

Symphonic Choirs Expansion Included in the Bundle

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 Symphonic Choirs Expansion lets you crossfade from the loudest Symphonic Choirs vowels into the FFF Voices of the Apocalypse vowels. The result is a well integrated 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 Symphonic Choirs Expansion also includes the ever popular Angels and Demons samples from Voices of the Apocalypse.

Men's and Women's FFF vowels (ah, ih, uh, oh, oo, eh, ee) are included as well as the "Angels" and "Demons" patches from the original Voices of the Apocalypse.

The additional VOTA content was recorded at 24-bit resolution with a single mic position. The Symphonic Choirs Expansion is available as an add-on for $79.95.

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.
