Olympus Elements is a Kontakt Player and Komplete Kontrol ready library that simplifies the content into just the multi-dynamic pure vowel sustains, true legato, marcatos, staccatos and classic vowel-based choral effects, with separate men's and women's sections for each articulation type, as well as unified full ensemble chorus presets to make choral composing a breeze.
