I’ve been using quite of few of the Pianobook samples recently. I was interested in recording some samples for Winter Voices. So, on the eve of Thanksgiving, I hunkered down in my recording studio to record some Ahhs. I layered 3 copies of my voice, run through multiple instances of Supermassive, each set to different reverb models. Each voice was recorded using a Rode NT2 large capsule microphone through a Joe Meek VC6Q preamp. I think these samples sound best in the lower registers. I enjoyed this choir so much I made an EXS24 instrument from it.
Leave a review to let others know what you thought of the instrument!
Throwback style vocal samples
There is an interesting parallel here with early samplers which stretched a few samples over really wide ranges. This library makes me recall E-mu Emulator samples used by so many new wave artists. This definitely isn't the library to reach for if you're looking for a realistic sounding choir sample, but is nearly perfect if you're looking for a great emulation of early vocal samples.
A great paddy sound
I like the sound and its great for ambient beds, but its a bit limited in terms of what you can do with it.
Decent but limited.
I like the sounds, especially given anything resembling Pet Shop Boys style music. Recorded pretty well, and no major sound issues through the octaves.
