Every instrument inside this collection was recorded with the same attention to detail as their other libraries, featuring multiple mic positions, different short and long articulations, expressive phrases, true polyphonic legato and various ensemble sizes. Recorded at Sofia Session Studio using high-end recording equipment using the same approach towards liveliness and realism as their Next Generation Choir Series.
