Virharmonic has announced the release of version 1.5 of its Voices of Prague sample library for UVI, feautring a hand picked selection of top singers from the world renowned ‘Prague Philharmonic Choir’.
When version one came out at the end of September 2012, we were eagerly awaiting our users feedback. We were amazed at how well VoP was received. VoP is now used by Choir masters for mock ups, University lectures in their lessons and even helped composers to get their choral works performed live by renowned choirs. It comes as no surprise that our library has also been used in TV and Games industry and we are very pleased to see that our customers are eager to put VoP into action.
We have listened very carefully to all the feedback and have been trying to come up with ways to implement all the amazing functions which our users came up with. This new and fresh perspective lead us to a simple realization. What we wanted to do couldn’t (or at least we have no idea how)be done on our old platform of choice. We had so many ideas and very few solution on how to implement them. Then MachFive 3 accidently came under our radar and we got into talks with the guys who made it. We suddenly realized that functions we wanted were possible without cooking the CPU, overloading the ram or high latency. The first work on the update started and as it included a complete rewrite and brand new logic for the whole programme we got stuck into the samples as well.

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.
Articulations: Sustains, Staccatos, Marcatos and Lush scripted Legato.
