Tonehammer has released a new Cinematic Choir sample library: Requiem Light.
Requiem Light is based on a variety of new recording- and sampling techniques some which have never before been integrated in choral sample libraries, according to Tonehammer. The library can sound like a real choir and includes both full choir (SATB), divisi groups (males/females) and two solo singers (soprano and tenor) – all recorded in 24 bit / 44.1khz with 1 microphone position (pre-mixed from Requiem Pro (5.1) mics.
The library contains true (polyphonic) legato intervals from piano to forte, sustains from piano to forte, staccato with repetitions, ultra forte marcato, BPM (host-synced) based latin chants recorded at different speeds across entire interval of choir, tons of choral effects including whispers, shouts, clusters, demonic chants, sweeps, consonants without tone, claps, snaps and tons of different types of effects.
Requiem Light is powered by the free Kontakt Player from Native Instruments. Of course it can also be loaded into the full version of Kontakt 4.
