Virharmonic Voices of Prague sample library for Kontakt

Virharmonic Voice of Prague

Virharmonic has launched a Winter Madness Sale for its Voices of Prague, a Kontakt 4+ based choir with full syllable sequencing.

The choir was recorded with carefully hand picked selection of singers from Prague Philharmonic Choir. Special new deep sampling techniques were used to capture the colour and emotion of the human voice.

Each voice group (S.A.T.B) was recorded in groups of 3 Singers and the library consists of 3 Divisi per voice group totalling 12 Divisis at your disposal if full choir is played. This stops the unwanted layering of voices and making the mix sound overwhelming.

This library is made to provide the composer with absolute Rhythmic and Lyrical Freedom when writing for choir, but also to blend well with all other Choral and Orchestral instruments.

Voices of Prague features

  • Full S.A.T.B. Choir and Cinematic FX.
  • Three part auto divisi per vocal range.
  • Full Syllable Sequencing with double and Slavonic consonants.
  • Auto Poly-Legato with vowel morphing.
  • Auto voice splitting.
  • Auto-round robin/Humanising.
  • Custom IRs.
  • Articulations: Sustains, Staccatos, Marcatos and Lush scripted Legato.
  • All in Three Dynamics – pp, mf, ff.
  • Over 27,000 Samples.
  • Massive ranges: Basses E2-E4 , Tenors C3-C5, Altos G3-E5, Sopranos C4-C6.

Voices of Prague is currently available to purchase for the “Winter Madness” price of $299 USD (regular $449 USD).

Time+Space launches Soundiron Olympus Symphonic Choir Collection sweepstakes

Time+Space Soundiron sweepstakes

Time+Space has announced a sweepstakes, offering a chance to win the Olympus Symphonic Choir Collection sample library by Soundiron.

The critically acclaimed Soundiron is widely known for its leading choral and scoring percussion products as well as their exquisitely captured pianos, drums, ethnic and traditional folk instruments, ambient sound designs and sound effects libraries.

Their most recent triumphs are the Symphonic Choir Libraries – Mars and Venus – which, in a recent interview with Time+Space, Soundiron co-founder Mike Peaslee rated among his most proudest achievements to date…

“Together in terms of size and scale, they´re larger than all of our previous choral projects combined. We covered greatly expanded Latin content, all new Russian material, a ridiculous number of staccato and marcato articulations, tempo-synching, more robust word building and phrase sequencing, larger soloists sections and so much more.” – Mike Peaslee

Throughout August, Soundiron’s UK distributor Time+Space is giving you the chance to win a copy of Olympus Symphonic Choir Collection – an epic bundle containing the awe inspiring Mars and Venus men’s and women’s choirs.

The sweepstakes ends August 31st, 2012.

Vienna Symphonic Library releases Vienna Special Edition Vol. 3 & 4

VSL Special Edition Vol 3 and 4

Vienna Symphonic Library has announced the release of two new collections for the Vienna Special Editions, its entry-level orchestra packages.

The Vienna Special Editions offer a large-scale orchestra and more at your fingertips, in resource-saving, affordable packages. They are available in four BUNDLES, six COLLECTIONS and 14 individual instrument SECTIONS (Strings, Woodwinds, Brass, Percussion & More, Keyboards & Guitars) that may be purchased separately.

New Vienna Special Edition libraries

  • Special Edition Vol 3 (“Appassionata & Muted Strings”) – Apart from the lush and cinematic Appassionata Strings with a wide variety of playing techniques in normal and muted variations, the Special Edition Volume 3 focuses on “con sordino“ (muted) recordings of the Solo Strings and Chamber Strings. Additionally, you’ll find an alternative Harp to the one included in the Special Edition Volume 1. All instruments include Vienna Symphonic Library’s famed Legato Performances – real note transitions, smoothly and authentically performed by the algorithms of the Vienna Instruments software player.
  • Special Edition Vol 4 (“Special Winds & Choir”) features 15 woodwind and brass instruments that are not included in the Special Edition Volumes 1–3, such as the “Fanfare Trumpets” (a powerful ensemble of 6 trumpets), bass flute and contrabass clarinet. What’s more, the most important articulations of our Vienna Choir are included, covering the full range of the human voice with soprano, alto, tenor and bass ensembles. Add another dimension and a very human touch to your music, especially to your orchestral scores!

The new Special Edition collections are available to purchase at the introductory price of 325 EUR (Vol 3) and 245 EUR through June 15, 2012.
