8Dio Productions has released Studio Sopranos, a Colin O’Malley series library for Native Instruments Kontakt.
8Dio Studio Sopranos mark the beginning of a new generation in choir sampling. The sound flows from intimate and detailed to soaring and epic. Produced by Emmy Nominated composer, Colin O’Malley, the Studio Sopranos instrument was created with 9 sopranos, recorded in separate “divisis” of 3. Composers have individual control over each of the 3 divisi groups, offering great flexibility in section size and character.
The Studio Sopranos also proudly feature our new “Polyphonic Phrase Legato” : a truly groundbreaking advance in realism for choral writing. Forgoing traditional sampling methodology of fragmented work builders, polyphonic phrase legato allows you to write freely, while still harnessing the true annunciation flow of a live choir.
Our true legato instruments feature a new level of emotional realism, with a true sense of the sopranos soaring and reaching for each note. Speed control allows composers to customize the interval transitions to cover writing at a variety of tempos. The layer of the 3 divisis provides a true 3 dimensional sense of a live choir at your fingertip.
Dynamic Arcs provide an endless bed of inspiring pads and sketching tools. They can be used on their own, or as supporting voices for our Multi Vowels or True Legato instruments. They are the exact opposite of a lifeless sustain, and will bring true emotional realism to your virtual choir.
Our Staccato and Marcato articulations showcase a punchier epic side of the soprano voice. Pushing things further with our articulation sequencer, custom chains and phrases can be created to trigger effortlessly.
The library is available for purchase the introductory price of $249 USD until April 1st, 2015 (regular $349 USD).
