VOXOS: Epic Virtual Choirs is Cinesamples' virtual choir instrument for professionals, containing a full epic choir, boys choir, soloists, an innovative phrase builder and the industry's most realistic and powerful true legato engine.
Powered by the industry-leading Kontakt Player engine, VOXOS contains world-renowned choirs and soloists with over 15 years of experience recording for countless Hollywood films, trailers, video games and the concert stage. Recorded at the legendary Bastyr Chapel, with its gorgeous acoustics, the choirs were captured with multiple microphone positions in 24bit/48k 5.1 surround. The result is a pristine tone that sounds great right out of the box. VOXOS contains over 35,000 samples, at an uncompressed size of 35GB.
WHAT'S NEW IN VOXOS 2?
Featuring a newly recorded and mixed sample set, along with additional script improvements and features, the new and improved VOXOS 2 is such a substantial update we consider it a reboot of the library. Besides the multitude of patch and script fixes that enhance playability, VOXOS 2 now offers the ability to quantize your Phrase Builder performance, and adds another dynamic layer on top of it (FFF!). We've also introduced three brand new patches to the library- Chords, Octaves, and a fresh Solo Soprano.
•30 Syllable Matrix Editor
•Intuitive, performance-oriented scripting
•Staccatos, Sustains, Shouts, Whispers
•Dynamic morphing from p to fff
•4 Mic positions + Full Mix
•Section contains over 16,000 samples
The Phrase Builder is a powerful way of adding word syllables into a choir performance. VOXOS contains a 30 syllable selector matrix which allows you to quickly assemble multi-syllable phrases onto a grid. Each syllable will intelligently advance to the next syllable, based on your keyboard performance. If it's a sustain, the Phrase Builder can also connect one syllable over many notes, in a melismatic way.
•Sopranos (Ah, Oo, p to ff)
•Altos (Ah, Oo, p to ff)
•Tenors (Ah, Oo, p to ff)
•Basses (Ah, Oo, p to ff)
•Boys Choir (Ah, Oo, p to ff)
•Solo Boy, Soprano and Alto
•Real transition samples for all intervals
•Innovative Voice Leading Engine (V.L.E.)
•4 Mic positions + Full Mix
•Section alone contains 17,000 samples
The Legato Sections contains true legato performances of Sopranos, Altos, Tenors, Basses, Boys Choir, Solo Boy, Solo Soprano and Solo Alto. Cinesamples has methodically recorded the tens of thousands of intervalic leaps within the ranges of each section. Their custom Legato script instantly analyses the keyboard performance and plays the appropriate interval sample. The result is an instrument that allows you to play smooth and emotional legato lines.
Built into Legato Sections is Cinesamples' innovative Voice Leading Engine (V.L.E.). The V.L.E. allows you to play a full keyboard patch of S, A, T, B choir with independently moving legato lines. The engine instantly analyses the chord structure and assigns each pitch to its own section of the choir. The result: a patch that is easy to play, with incredibly realistic results.
•Trailer Risers (7 speeds)
•Tonal Diatonic Clusters (pp to fff)
•Atonal Clusters (pp to fff)
•1950?s Sandman Choir (bum bum)
•Contains over 1,700 samples
•4 Mic positions + Full Mix
VOXOS contains over 500+ Choir Effects suitable for film, tv and game music. There are hundreds of shouts, whispers, grunts, clusters, screams and trailer risers, perfect for any media project.
The Chords patch is modeled after our popular CineOrch library, where each note plays an entire chord instead of an individual pitch class. The library divides the keyboard into six main sections:
The three sections on the left correspond to the major chords, while the three right sections will trigger the minor chords. The blue keys play the chords in their root position, the yellow keys play the chords in first inversion, and the red keys play the second inversion of the chords.
The Octaves patch is not unlike the patch from our Hollywoodwinds library, where we recorded all sections performing in octaves simultaneously. This patch covers two full octaves of all sections singing the same triggered pitch class.
By default, the samples will react to CC1 and CC2, with the former controlling the dynamics, and the latter changing the vowels between Ooh and Ah. This, like the other patches, can be changed from the [Settings] tab.
The New Solo Soprano Patch
We have recorded an all new solo soprano for the VOXOS 2 update. Unlike the VOXOS v1.2 Solo Soprano, we have included multiple new features for this patch.
We recorded both the sustains and the shorts for the Solo Soprano New patch. Also, the sustains now respond to CC2 which allows you to move between vibrato and non-vibrato layers. We have also included the Poly Legato function in case you wish to use this patch for multiple voices. Like in the Legato Sections patch, we included the [VLE Settings] button in case you wish to tweak the Voice Leading Engine parameters for multiple voice lines.
Solo Soprano Legacy, Solo Boy Legacy, Women Bum Bums
The last three patches of VOXOS 2 come from the old VOXOS 1.2 library. The three patches are the Solo Soprano Legacy patch, the Solo Boy Legacy patch, and the Women Bum Bums patch.
These three patches function the same way as the previous version of this library, but the sample set has been re-tuned, re-mixed, and de-noised.
