Soundiron has released the Olympus Elements virtual symphonic choir for Kontakt and Kontakt Player.

Olympus Elements is a choral toolkit that puts the core functionality and sonic quality of the Olympus Symphonic Choir into a low-cost package. It is designed, to provide a potent and simple choral scoring solution that captures the spirit and power of a full 63-voice symphonic vocal ensemble, for both professionals and casual users.

Olympus Elements is available in both a Powered-By-Kontakt Player Edition and standard open format version. The Player Edition is supported by the free Kontakt Player and Kontakt "Libraries" rack browser and uses lossless ncw compression. The standard open format version requires the full version of Kontakt and isn't supported by the Libraries rack, but includes unlocked wav samples.

The choir was recorded in a large hall with a close, wide stereo stage mic position and covers all 8 primary vowel sounds: Ah, Ee, Eh, Ei, Ih, Mm, Oh and Oo. The choir is fully configurable, with independent control over male and female divisi sections. It covers sustains, staccatos and marcatos, with pp-ff dynamic layering and round-robin. There is also a dedicated section of true legato ah & oo sustains, with up to 6-part polyphonic harmony and interval shaping. The library also features a variety of classic choral effects, swells, sweeps, shouts, whispers, etc. Each preset comes with an array of real-time performance and tone controls and 50+ custom room & fx reverbs to choose from. There is also a selection of hand-crafted choral atmospheres, pads and evolving soundscapes to open up further creative possibilities.
