Spitfire Audio releases Originals Epic Choir, new software synthesizer featuring Sound Of A 50 Voice Vocal Ensemble

 

Spitfire Audio has introduced Originals Epic Choir, a new software synth that features the sound of a 50-piece large-scale ensemble of London’s finest vocalists, recorded in the hallowed (Lyndhurst) Hall at London’s legendary AIR Studios.

 

“Originals Epic Choir features 50 singers, which is the biggest ensemble of voices that we’ve recorded yet,” notes Spitfire Audio in-house composer Homay Schmitz. “It’s been recorded at AIR Studios’ Lyndhurst Hall, so you get those beautiful acoustics; with it also being a former church, you get the singers in a traditional habitat as well.”

 

Features:

 

  • 50-piece ensemble
  • Recorded at Lyndhurst Hall, AIR Studios — home of blockbuster scores
  • Three bespoke signals (Close, Tree, Ethereal)
  • Split into two sections — Sopranos & Altos / Tenors & Bass — both sections offering identical articulations
  • Classic shorts and longs, as well as ‘episodic’ vowel blending textures and short staccato syllables, alternating between vowel sounds

 

 

Presets:

 

  • Sopranos & Altos: Long Ahh — A long sustained note, sung on the vowel sound “ahh”
  • Sopranos & Altos: Long Mmm — A long sustained note, hummed on the consonant “mmm”
  • Sopranos & Altos: Episodic Combo 1 — A long episodically changing sustained note, blending between a combination of different vowel sounds, for a textural and shifting sound
  • Sopranos & Altos: Episodic Combo 2 — A long episodically changing sustained note, blending between a combination of different vowel sounds, for a textural and shifting sound
  • Sopranos & Altos: Short Staccato Syllables — A short, sharp sound, sung on one of up to seven different syllabic sounds
  • Sopranos & Altos: Short Staccato Syllables (keyswitch) — A short, sharp sound, sung on one of up to seven different syllabic sounds, with keyswitch functionality to change between specific syllables
  • Tenors & Basses: Long Ahh — A long sustained note, sung on the vowel sound “ahh”
  • Tenors & Basses: Long Mmm — A long sustained note, hummed on the consonant “mmm”
  • Tenors & Basses: Episodic Combo 1 — A long episodically changing sustained note, blending between a combination of different vowel sounds, for a textural and shifting sound
  • Tenors & Basses: Episodic Combo 2 — A long episodically changing sustained note, blending between a combination of different vowel sounds, for a textural and shifting sound

  • Tenors & Basses: Short Staccato Syllables (keyswitch) — A short, sharp sound, sung on one of up to seven different syllabic sounds, with keyswitch functionality to change between specific syllables

 

Controls:

 

  • Reverb — A realistic Hall-style impulse response
  • Release — A release trigger which only applies to long patches
  • Tightness — This cuts further into the note to make it tighter and only applies to short patches

 

Signals:

  • Close – Valve spot mics summed together for a direct and upfront image of the string ensemble.
  • Tree – A decca tree microphone array, giving a spacious and enveloping sound.
  • Ethereal – A treated signal (saturation, reverb, EQ) which adds texture, brightness and width to the vocals, while retaining an organic feel

 

It is available now as an AAX-, AU-, VST2-, and VST3-compatible plug-in, supporting Native Instruments’ NKS (NATIVE KONTROL STANDARD) for Mac (OS X 10.13 – macOS 12) and Windows (7, 8, 10, and II — latest Service Pack)

 

Originals Epic Choir cost £29.00/$29.00 /€29.00 (inc. VAT).
