Haas Choir is a taped choir pad made from a single note.
A Paulstretched C3 note of the performance was run through a tape emulation plugin by Wavesfactory as well as a touch of UberMod by Valhalla.
I hope this instrument created from such a raw and achingly sad melody finds life in new compositions and new contexts.

The photo of the person would be more accurate having the water up OVER this person's head because it is just soooooo wet. Don't get me wrong here, I love verb. So much. And this is too much. I mean I probably don't mind it as much as some but I really wish there was a wet dry knob at the very least. Also be forewarned, this patch comes in HOT. I had to turn down the master volume of Kontakt to nearly -30db and it still was peaking at times. I think that the overall sound of this is wonderful and vibrant but this needs a bit of reworking to help this submerged beauty come up to the surface.
This is Fixable...
The Choir itself sounds okay, it's very synthetic sounding and overly wet. But the issue lies in the recording quality. play a simple triad and the sound buildup causes signal overload and distortion in seconds. The original sample itself is quite noisy, but not really in a good way. This combined with a lack of programming has led the library to be pretty much unusable.
Intriguing and unsettling choir drenched in reverb. Even Christian might take some splosh off this one. Well worth opening up Kontakt and having a play with the reverbs. Also a low pass on the mod wheel works well
Love the sound of choir. Lower range is very nice too!
Very interesting! Sound is excellent. It has a long tail, so it would have been better if it came with some parameter.
An interesting tone but hard for me to use
Like others, I find some good things in the tone but, overall, hard to practically use due to wetness and the very long release time
A very WET vocal pad
Seriously, this is way too wet, to the point that is almost unusable. The samples are great though, with little to no audible noise. But, even if you hit a note in a spiccato fashion, the sample keeps going 8-9 seconds. This would have been amazing with some simple ADSR controls, or even a modwheel control over the dynamics.
A Nice Vocal Pad
This is a nice sounding vocal pad, but would probably benefit from some additional GUI controls. In particular, I found the release to be somewhat too long for most uses. Curiously, setting the release time to zero within the Kontakt instrument doesn't seem to remedy this, which makes this instrument less usable to me at least.
Promising, if it had a GUI...
This library has potential to be a very useful synthesizer type choir library do 3 due to the realism of the recordings. Firstly, when opening up the instrument not all the files or in the proper directories causing the easier to have to take an extra step to locate them to get the instrument up and running. There is no DUI for this instrument so you can't make any changes to the sound or customized to fit your needs. Some simple attack, delay, sustain, and release controls would definitely help us instrument excel, but unfortunately, it's not very usable in his current version.
Love the character of this choir instrument
too much rumbling and also the volume gets pretty intense veery fast but the sound still awesome.
