Soundiron has released an update to the Elvish Choir instrument library for Kontakt.

Created from recordings of singing with helium inhaled, the virtual choir instrument was originally published in 2009 as part of the Tonehammer Gnomehammer v1 collection.

Soundiron Elvish Choir GUI

This library is exactly what it sounds like: A pack of rowdy elven folk singing as an ensemble, with sustains, staccatos in multiple dynamics over a wide range. It’s perfect for holiday, comedy and parody music and those searching for fresh and weird source material for sound-design and experimentation.

For this 2.0 upgrade, we recorded Solo Doo and La articulations, as well as public domain Christmas song phrases from Deck The Halls and Jingle Bells. We also created brand new ambiences from the source content. Elvish Choir is completely remastered with a fresh multi-layer user interface, and 20 custom FX presets designed for instant inspiration. It’s built for the full retail version of Kontakt 5.5 or later.

Elvish Choir is available from Plugin Boutique for £3.95 GBP / $5 USD until January 19th. The regular price is $7 USD.
