EastWest used the 2005 Winter NAMM show to announce Symphonic Choirs.
Recorded in 24-bit by Grammy-Winning classical recording engineer Professor Keith O. Johnson, and produced by Doug Rogers and Nick Phoenix, Symphonic Choirs captures 5 Choirs (Boys; Alto -- Female; Soprano -- Female; Basses --Male; Tenors -- Male; plus solo singers) recorded with 3 simultaneous microphone setups (close, stage, and hall), which allow the user to mix any combination of microphones together to create a vast array of tone control and real concert hall ambience.
"The significant amount of detail that went into recording the choirs and how the sounds are presented on Symphonic Choirs is what makes this product so special," states co-producer and EastWest Creative Director Doug Rogers. "The quality and quantity (37 Gigabyte) of sounds contained in this collection are sure to give our professional composers, who are the who's who of the music, film, television and stage industries, superior quality to anything that's been released previously, and much greater choices in selecting the sounds that will work best for their project -- in stereo or surround sound."
With production details as fine as slurred legatos on each vowel, Symphonic Choirs offers specifically recorded and chromatically sampled singers in order to capture a full range of vibratos. An advanced word building utility for both MAC and PC, that includes a text editor, enables users to type in the words they want the choirs to sing; Other technical specifications include: playback software from Native Instruments for both MAC and PC (AU, VSTi, DXi, RTAS and Stand Alone); full compatibility with the Quantum Leap Symphonic Orchestra.
