Vienna Symphonic Library has announced the release of Vienna Choir, a new Vienna Instrument that offers the human voice as a virtual instrument.
Vienna Choir provides a 25 GB vocal collection, offering the full range of the human voice with soprano, alto, tenor and bass ensembles. All voices were cast and assembled exclusively for the recording sessions at Vienna's Silent Stage, with each singer hand-selected from Austria's leading choirs.
Like all Vienna Instruments collections, Vienna Choir is a sample-based virtual instrument that supports native 32-bit and 64-bit processing on both Mac OS X (Intel) and Windows. It ships in the formats VST, RTAS (OS X, Windows XP/Vista/7) and AU (OS X) and also works stand-alone. Registered users are eligible to download the free mixing and host software Vienna Ensemble.
Vienna Choir is now available from the company's worldwide network of distributors and dealers as well as at the Vienna Symphonic Library web shop.
