For those who are not to keen on East West symphonic choirs, what are the cons of the program?
I have EW Choirs + Expansion as well. It’s not a horrible library by any means, but alas, it isn’t the best either. There’s pros and cons to every program/vst/sequencer/ect. The key is using them to their full potential and figuring out what works with them. From my experience so far with EW Choirs, it’s pretty simple to use. Load up a multi and play away (no pun intended). As for the Wordbuilder program, it works nicely, but depends on which words you use. It takes some small editing and tweeking to perfect sounds like “AY” as in the word “Day”. But you have a nice range of what you can do with it, as well as solo out sections (Sopranos, Altos, Tenors, Basses) and the expansion (VOTA) give it even more depth with more “intense” sounding choirs. I haven’t tried any of the other choir libraries mentioned, but I have looked in to them. If EW Choirs isn’t your way to go, then by all means Requiem is probably the way to go. Keep in mind that Requiem, I don’t think, has a “text to choir” method. It’s more based off of sound type/noise type (Ah, Ruh, Sai, ect). I haven’t really heard much from Voxos however.
Overall, I’m pretty happy with what I can get from EW Choirs. I haven’t had really any problems with it.
I started out only giving mp3 files due to the simple fact that WAV takes up more space, but seeing how the quality is a ton better with WAV than mp3, I started including both formats in all my uploads.
As said before, some video software will only accept one or the other. After Effects takes WAV while something like Movie Maker may only take mp3. If you provide both, then you know your customer will be able to use it regardless of their editor of choice
I actually just purchased this package last night. Pretty impressive stuff in here. If you don’t have anything from ProjectSAM, it’s a good buy if you’re not wanting to dive into the more expensive stuff. I would go straight for Symphobia 1/2 but, alas, I simply don’t have that much money to throw down on that just yet.
Was just getting ready to post that Thomas
Thanks for the share! Seems great for people who don’t yet own any of the Projectsam libraries.
Exactly what I was thinking. I have a ton of orchestral libraries, but I have yet to get anything from ProjectSAM. I always intended to, but you know..I don’t have a money making robot in my yard
