Olympus Elements is a powerful choral instrument that puts the core functionality and raw sonic power of our full 63-voice Olympus Symphonic Choir into a compact and easy-to-use package, with rich features designed for pros at a price designed for everyone. This Powered-By-Kontakt library is designed for everyone, whether you´re just beginning your musical career or are a seasoned pro. If you want a glorious sounding, efficient and user-friendly virtual choir without sophisticated lyrical phrasing or solo content, then this is the one you´ve been waiting for.
Olympus Elements contains just the wide close stage blend microphone position for all 8 core vowel articulations: Ah, Ee, Eh, Ei, Ih, Mm, Oh and Oo. The choir is completely configurable, with independent control over male and female divisi sections. You´ll find sustains, staccatos and marcatos, with pp-ff dynamic layering and intelligent round robin. This choir packs a massive forte punch and velvety smooth piano dynamics, giving you complete expressive control and creative freedom. We also bring you our newly upgraded true ah & oo legato sustains, with up to 6-part polyphonic harmony and fluid interval shaping. The library also features a wide variety of classic choral effects, swells, sweeps, shouts, whispers and more. Each preset comes with an array of fine performance controls, EQ, 50 custom convolution environmental and fx reverbs to choose from. And of course, we´ve included our signature hand-crafted choral atmospheres, pads and evolving soundscapes to open up more creative possibilities.
Olympus Elements features a fully automatable custom user interface that allows for full control over sound shaping and performance. You´ll have full control over Swell, Attack, Release Time, Release Volume, Sample Start Offset and Panning for each choral section. Section note ranges are fully configurable, and keyswitches are available to quickly select between all the available articulations for each layer.
Every preset has access to over 50 integrated convolution reverb impulses and full 3-band Equalizer. Many presets also have an optional vibrato feature to simulate molto forte. We also offer our exclusive flexible legato system for up to 6-part polyphonic harmony (3 per section), with full interval range, speed and intensity control. Our Vowelmaster preset is the all-in-one solution, providing live sustain and staccato switching for any vowel for each section, with layer blending and stacking, dynamic shaping and total performance control. Elements also includes the latest version of our Phrasemaster, which gives you the power to sequence up to 16 different complex 16-step sustain/staccato phrases, using your choice of GUI, CC automation and keyswitch control. You can even assign each step to just the men, women or the full choir. The Phrasemaster is key-switch configurable and you can save and load your own custom phrases.
Purchasers of Olympus Elements can also get $50 off the upgrade to our complete Olympus Symphonic Choral Collection! And even if you already own the full version of our Olympus Collection, Elements can be a potent weapon when you just need a lightweight, flexible choir that gets the job done even on the tightest scoring deadline.

I'm using the library for orchestral, film/game related scores. A good choice for anyone who works in that genre and wants a beautiful choir legato sound, realistic choir chords and pads and fake a few phrases here and there. I believe it needs an expression knob to be able to reach a softer sound, I had to assign a CC to the volume myself in Kontakt's edit mode to do that. Overall, a good product and in a good price.
This library is terrific, whether alone or layered with another vocal library. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to write not just Epic music, but chorale parts in general, or someone who wants to (as mentioned above) fill out their choir parts more via layering.
I'm a big Soundiron fan, and for a good reason.This choir has not let me down either.It is a really nicely priced entry into their choir world and is suitable for anything from classic through ambient and other styles of music. The legato is fantastic and the phrase master component works a treat and makes for interesting combinations of the vowels.
