Soundiron is incredibly proud to announce the pre-sale of our much anticipated follow up to Mars, The Venus Symphonic Women's Choir. Pre-orders are now being taken for the incredibly low introductory price of only $369* until May 1st! You can order it now via our high-speed Continuata download service or get a copy on DVD. Venus is the latest chapter in our series of powerful, flexible and exquisitely recorded virtual choral libraries. We took all we learned from recording previous choirs and applied them here to make certain Venus is extraordinarily playable, diverse and stunningly beautiful.
To celebrate the upcoming release of Venus, we're also offering a special discount on the Olympus Choral Bundle with both Mars and Venus together, for a special intro price of only $549 ($569 regular) until May 1st, 2012.
With Venus, we are aiming for versatility. Instead of focusing on one language, we offer both Slavonic (Russian) and classic Latin content, so composers can explore even more flavor and realism. We spent 10 days in our favorite church recording the 33-voice women's chorus, featuring top notch talent from Volti, SF Symphony Chorus and the SF Choral Society, capturing all of the delicate nuances of the female human voice. Venus is all about power, clarity and fluidity. It includes 2 mic positions (stage and hall) so composers have the flexibility to incorporate the brilliant, natural sound of Venus easily into their mix.
Here's a look at the custom UI:
