A 12-piece chamber choir recorded with seven different mic positions in a small, punchy hall. The Expansion of the flagship library from Strezov Sampling gives you additional decorative articulations and soloists to create even better sounding choral arrangements than before.
After the huge success of Storm Choir 1 Strezov Sampling proudly presents the highly anticipated sequel, which takes the same critically acclaimed concept and takes it to a whole new level in terms of detail and expression. Storm Choir 2 is a 12-piece chamber choir with focus on a slavonic molto vibrato tone. Comprised of six men and six women, recorded seperately, the ensemble features singers from Bulgaria's finest choirs, including the National Radio, Sofia Philharmonic and the Academic Choir.
True Legato Singing
Unlike Storm Choir 1 its successor features legato patches with recorded transitions (true legato) for women and men. The Core edition of Storm Choir 2 gives you the most important articulation for modern choir arrangements the "Ah" vowel. Since the release of the Ah Legato module in early 2014 our custom built legato engine earned itself the reputation to be the smoothest and most playable choir legato ever done. It can be heard in countless Triple A productions worldwide and is a perfect showcase for the superiority of the chamber choir concept compared to sampled choir libraries with bigger ensembles available on the market. For a real life impression make sure to watch the walkthrough videos and the official audio demos.
A very popular approach to letting a virtual choir sing lyrics in recent years has been Phrasebuilding. Storm Choir 2: Core offers 24 deeply sampled matching syllables for both the sustain (marcato) and staccato articulation accessible in an intuitive and easy to use Phrasebuilder Engine within Native Instrument's Kontakt sampler. Switch between different phrases and layer samples using our unique Stack option to create a more powerful sound or tighten your custom phrases with the new Tightening feature we added with the recently released 2.1 update.
True Legato Soloist and Oh Legato
The expansion to StormChoir 2 Core gives you more options for true legato singing providing a mystical sounding Soprano Soloist and the "Oh" vowel recorded and edited in the same way as our renowned "Ah" Legato for both women and men.
With this expansion set StormChoir 2 now also includes the most extensive and detailed choral effects collection currently available on the market. While StormChoir 2 Core included 24 matching syllables for both sustains and staccatos, the FX section brings you atonal variations for all of those syllables and both articulations as well as a brandnew way to use consonants and whispers to improve the realism of your mockups. To make this huge collection still easy to work with it is again built into our phrasebuilder engine, which is also used for the Core edition. As a special bonus the Expansion also comes with prerecorded falls and risers for women and men.
