Magnus Choir is a virtual instrument which can be used to create natural and synthetic choirs. The male and female choruses combine to form a mixed choir, featuring the classic SATB (soprano, alto, tenor, bass) structure: women sing soprano and alto, while men sing tenor and bass. Versatile to generate a wide spectrum of choirs, vocal textures, choral pads and voices with modulation capabilities for a new level of realism in digital sound creation.

  • ADSR envelope generator with Attack, Sustain, Decay and Release parameters.
  • Pitch Bend: The Pitch Bend knob directly changes the pitch of the selected instrument.
  • Reverb built-in: provides a spaciousness and depth to simulate the sound reflections from walls, floors and ceilings following a sound created in an acoustically reflective environment. Small rooms can be modeled as well as large spaces.
  • Filter Section: with filter type box for low pass filter and high pass filter.
  • Amplitude Range Parameters: It controls the loudness, the way in which we perceive amplitude.The sensitivity level is set by the user.

  • Panning potentiometer control.

I have this and like it just fine, but I have v1.5 and from what I can tell of the demo, it sounds about the same, so while it does some very nice synthy choirs, for the most part it's not all that realistic IMO (listen to the demo and judge for yourself). But for about $50ish you're not going to get extremely realistic choir sounds anyway. This is IMO worth what it costs and if your choir sounds are in the background with other instruments or sounds, it could be more than realistic enough! It also has a simple, no-nonsense interface (at least v1.5 does) which I appreciate in this era of "more controls are better" all the time.

I Purchased the Magnus Choir a few days ago looking for a temporary bridge between the usual GM midi soundset type choir sound VSTs, and the very expensive($300+) commercial VSTs and I am happy to say Magnus has worked well in all my composition needs. It can be used for anything from straight classical film score to pop choirs and spacey interludes, the quality is much better than expected and the presets cover all bases for my work.

I thought I would have to hold off to purchase the more expensive VSTs, but Magnus has really given me the quality I needed at a killer price, just some adjusting of the envelops(very easy to do), and I got exactly what I needed. The only wish I have is to be able to select/change the vocal sample on a preset, but for about 39USD, I am definitely asking too much !!

Very simple, uncluttered interface, well thought out midi CC controller assignment, well documented and the preset names include the dynamic setting so I know what patch to use for a stacatto piece or when I need a legato choir !!

I recommend Magnus Choir to anyone doing indie film work who wants a great choir sound for a great value !!!Read Review
