Tonehammer has announced Requiem Light, a new version of the next-generation virtual choir product developed for professional composers.
Requiem essentially comes in two different versions, Requiem Pro and Requiem Light. Requiem Pro contains three full (5.1) microphone positions, updated to 5 solo singers and full effects section. Requiem Light contains one premixed microphone position, 2 solo singers and a more limited effects section, no convolution effects.
Requiem Light supports the Free Kontakt Player by Native Instruments, so the only purchase you need to make is this product and then download the free Kontakt Player and you will be rolling.
