A 20-piece Chamber Choir Refined

It was inevitable that after the success of the Next Gen choir series (Wotan, Freyja, Arva, Rhodope 2) Strezov Sampling had to upgrade Storm Choir to be up date with the rest of their choral libraries and to have the same features. Therefore they re-recorded everything, but this time with slightly bigger ensembles - 10 singers per section (men/women) for the syllables and 6 singers per section for the legatos. Again, they kept the same idea in mind - singing with exaggerated vibrato, over the top and generally - very loud. Strezov Sampling re-recorded all 24 syllables of Storm Choir 2 in three dynamic layers, controllable with mod wheel (CC#1). 

Syllabuilder Engine 3.5

When it comes to virtual choirs, there are basically two approaches: Phrasebulding (Storm Choir legacy series) and Wordbuilding (Rhodope legacy series). Storm Choir Ultimate combines the simplicity and sample recording of phrasebuilding with the advanced editing functions of wordbuilding, the same the Next Gen choir libraries do. This allows you to have amazing sounding results within seconds, but also to build and create new sample content with only a few mouse-clicks (combine multiple syllables together, save them as presets, morph between vowels, combine staccato and sustain together, etc.).

All samples have their natural attacks included. However, if you want to tighten them up, the Syllabuilder Engine allows you to set custom attack, release, volume and offset values for each field independently. Something completely new and greatly missed in all phrasebuilding choir libraries.

You can also create complete choral patterns inside the GUI or connect different syllables and morph them to add motion to your choir arrangements. Save and Load complete lyric presets to quickly get yourself into the actual composition or enhance your setup with predefined quick words.

The most fluid Polyphonic True Legato

Like the other libraries, Storm Choir Ultimate also has true legato patches that can be played polyphonically without issues and without complicated extra requirements - you just play the music you have in your head and you don't need to worry about anything else. Also, the Syllabuilder engine has the Agile legato that gives you the option to cut off beginning consonants of syllables and to perform them as legato, again polyphonically. The intelligent voice leading enabling polyphonic writing within just one patch. In other words: Hold down a chord with your left hand, play a melody with your right hand and have it all connected with legato transitions. This powerful feature is controllable by the most common of all midi cc controllers, the sustain pedal.

Breathtaking Soloists

After Strezov  Sampling released Storm Choir 2, a lot of the users requested to have key singers available as soloist patches - this is why they have picked the ones with the most unique timbres and included them in the library - a total of 8 soloists with limited amount of syllables (12 instead of 24) that you can use either on their own, or as an "overdub" of the library - think of it as a "first chair" library for singers.

Thunderous Effects, Whispers and Shouts

The library also has a dedicated FX section, featuring whispers (in two dynamics - soft whisper and "theatric" whisper), shouts, clusters (multiple dynamics, ranges and vowels) and the traditional risers and falls. The whispers and shouts are included in a Syllabuilder patch that gives you the possibility to morph between syllables, to connect them and to create new words, patterns and effects really quick.
