Choir Essentials combines a handpicked selection of the most used techniques found in our critically acclaimed Next Generation Choir Series. Covering 95% of what you will ever need in choral scoring for all media types without any compromises in dynamic range (from soft and delicate to aggressive) thanks to the availability of individual and full sections including a children choir. This collection is the perfect entry point for new composers and producers starting out as well as veterans, who want to extend their scoring palette or need an easy to use choral scoring tool. Featuring three mic positions and our favorite choral samples recorded in an ambient concert hall. A "ready to go" tool for all situations.
Performance Patches - Realistic sounding results within seconds!
Something our entire choral range excels at is accessibility and getting realistic sounding choir lines within seconds. With our unique performance patches we managed to push this feature to another level. Performance Patches allow you to mockup your choir lines on the fly due to custom edits of the recordings to make them extremely playable, while maintaining their organic and raw tone.
Choose between different mappings of the different choral sections to increase the playability even further and fit the outcome to the needs of your track. We built this patch, so it allows you to choose between playing the choir pre-arranged in octaves, divided into separate sections or with the natural overlapping ranges in mind.
Our Velocity Dynamic Influencer allows you to determine the loudness of single chord notes by velocity, which makes highlighting certain notes within a chord easier than ever, while Modwheel CC1 still controls crossfading between the natural dynamic layers. The combination of both greatly enhances the expression you can get out of a regular keyboard performance.
If you ever looked for a "go-to" playable choir patch. This is it!
The most fluid Polyphonic True Legato
Like our other libraries, Choir Essentials also has true legato patches that can be played polyphonically without issues and without complicated extra requirements - you just play the music you have in your head and you don't need to worry about anything else. Our intelligent voice leading enables polyphonic writing within just one patch. In other words: Hold down a chord with your left hand, play a melody with your right hand and have it all connected with legato transitions. This powerful feature is controllable by the most common of all midi cc controllers, the sustain pedal.
Percussion Essentials X3M brings together the highlights of our X3M Percussion Series, which was created during the last 10 years. This collection is the perfect entry point for new composers and producers starting out as well as veterans, who want to extend their scoring palette or need an easy to use percussion scoring tool. Featuring three mic positions recorded in an ambient concert hall. A "ready to go" tool for all situations.
