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.

Details:

  • 25,734 samples.
  • 26.7 GB Installed.
  • 406 nki instrument presets.
  • 120 combo close/far presets for easy 5.1 surround mixing.
  • 24 bit / 48kHz stereo PCM wav format.
  • Open Kontakt format to allow user customization.
  • Kontakt 5 required for Tempo-Syncing and Time-stretching presets.

Note: Full retail version of Kontakt 4 required to use all .nki instrument program presets included in this library. Free Kontakt Player does not support this library.

Venus is designed as the female counterpart to the Soundiron Mars Symphonic Men's Choir, with matching microphone positions, features and core articulations. The two can be purchased together as the Olympus Choral Collection for $569.
