Soundiron releases Venus Symphonic Women's Choir for Kontakt

Soundiron has announced the imminent release of the Venus Symphonic Women's Choir for Kontakt. It costs $399 and can be purchased now with the download available from May 1st, 2012.

Venus Symphonic Women's Choir is a full 33-voice female chorus singing in Latin and Russian (Slavonic). It covers a full range of extended choral articulations and effects. It features pp/fff true legato for ah, eh, oh and oo, plus a soft "mmm" legato. There is a full range of 21 standard vowel sustains, 36 marcato words, 48 staccato syllables, 51 lyrical tempo-syncing poly-sustains and a large collection of choral effects (drones, whispers, shouts, sweeps, swells, clusters, etc.).

Recorded in the same large hall as the Mars Symphonic Men's Choir and Apocalypse Percussion Ensemble. It includes 2 independent microphone positions (stage and hall), carefully mixed from an array of 12 discreet microphones. With this A/B positioning, surround mixing is fast, easy and resource efficient.

All sustaining vowels and marcato words include independent round-robin attacks, sustains and releases. The staccatos feature 4 round-robins per note, with a double-stacking feature, as well as whispered and spoken/drone variants. 8 special vowel staccatos also feature pp/fff mod-wheel-controlled dynamic layering. There are also 2 Soprano and 3 Alto soloists, with poly-sustains, staccatos, whisper effects and a collection of melodic phrases.

The true legato sustains can be blended smoothly using 2- and 3-way automatable layering, with adjustable speed control. In addition, all other sustaining articulations also include 3-part polyphonic sim-legato, dual-layer blending to allow smooth articulation cross-fading, along with selection and tuning key-switches, fully automatable UI controls and more. Venus also features a large collection of Ambiences, Drones, Textures and FX content, along with a bonus set of "Amazing Grace" building blocks in freely arrangeable multi-part harmonies for solo and full choir.
