The Meyer Choir

A lasting musical memory taken with a U47 clone....

The story

A perfectly imperfect sample instrument featuring the voices of my family. We take family photos every year in an attempt to capture the moment, so why not create a lasting memory of our voices? Each voice was recorded through a U47 clone.

  • Take your time

    Some library's grab you straight away. Others, like this one you need to devote a little time too. You can get some really cool useful sounds from this. One I will come back too.

  • A really clever idea...

    this is a really nice twist on your typical choir library and its one that's stands out in a saturated area within the pianobook site. It's a little peculiar sounding but also very personal, unique and full of character.

  • That's Meyer, rhymes with choir!

    I'm sure Jon just made this because he's fed up of people pronouncing his name wrong but I'm glad he did. Very characterful with lots of variables

  • Character-rich family choir

    To me, this instrument represents one of the great things about Pianobook and the greater accessibility of sampling. A perfectly in tune choir this is not. Instead, it's a wonderfully real sound with a foundation of family and an underlying flavor of the bittersweetness of THAT particular moment with the whole family that will never quite be the same again. Love it!

  • Extraordinaire and very creative!

    I LOVED this, both for the idea and the execution! It's the definition of character and I feel honoured that Jon shared this with us. It's so wholesome and the quality is very high. In more detail you will find an ADSR setting, and individual volume sliders for each family member, in both wet and dry signals. I do wish the GUI was slightly different, but I don't want to take away the 5-star rating from this.

  • Very Human Choir

    A neat idea to make the creation of a sample library a family project. The GUI interface is awesome and gives you easy access to every control. There's some "pitchy-ness" in the samples and some dropouts which one can either find endearing or annoying depending upon your inclinations. Still, a unique sample pack which will doubtless find a fanbase.

  • A different choir

    I used this on a space album with tons of verb and it worked so well. Full of character.

  • Love the sound of boys choir

    This is one of the first samples I downloaded from Pianobook. The boys choir has a personality, an imperfect pitch fit my needs perfectly! The GUI was also eye-catching and the playability was outstanding.

  • One of the best choirs on pianobook

    I found nothing to complain about this. It is a very versatile choir that I have already used in a couple of tracks and its one of the better ones on Pianobook. Easy to use UI with the mix between singers and it works flawlessly.

  • Lockdown Gift From Jon

    What an incredible project, gorgeous family voices. With an interface that lets you alter the sound in real-time by generation! This is one of those sounds to bookmark for when you need a family singing on your productions or indeed drench with splosh for really scary haunted house vibes.
