Deep and expressive Male Choir Library

Inspired by the famous Lord of the Rings Moria men choir sound - Wotan is the evolution of Strezov Sampling's famous choir sampling philosophy, which combines never before sampled vocal timbres (basso profundos) with next-gen scripting.

After spending three years exploring various methods to sample choirs Strezov Sampling finally brings to you the next generation of virtual choirs. Focusing on one of the most iconic choir timbres of the last decades in the history of film soundtracks - The Khazad-dûm male choir - Wotan is the ultimate box of tools to evoke the sound of a long forgotten kingdom.

Comprised of ten tenors and ten basses (including basso profundos), all part of many choir recording sessions for artists like Two Steps from Hell, and recorded in the Sofia Session Studio Wotan is the perfect addition to the critically acclaimed StormChoir range adding a whole new layer of dimension and detail.

GUI Screen Tenors

Syllabuilder Engine 3.5

When it comes to virtual choirs there are basically two approaches: Phrasebulding (StormChoir series) and Wordbuilding (Rhodope series). Wotan combines the simplicity and sample recording of phrasebuilding with the advanced editing functions of wordbuilding. This allows you to have amazing sounding results within seconds, but also to build and create new sample content with only few mouse-clicks. 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.

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.

Revolutionary Agile Legato

Although there are many reasons WOTAN justifies to be called a next-gen library the biggest of them all is the brandnew Agile Legato. Uncountable hours of work went into creating this brandnew technique of combining true legato sampling with our Syllabuilding approach. Agile Legato not only allows the user to play legato with every syllable availabe in the library, but also features intelligent voice leading enabling polyphonic writing within just one patch. In other words: Hold down a chord in the left, 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.

In addition to the Agile Legato WOTAN also features polyphonic true legato patches (Ah, Mm and Oh) for both tenors and basses, which gives you tons of flexibility when it comes to writing legato lines.

The Library features:

  • 10 GB compressed and optimized sample content
  • Instant Lord of the Rings sound!
  • Separate recordings of ten tenors and ten basses

  • Integrated Help
  • Combined and premixed men patch
  • Lite patches for composers who don't need all features of the library

"Strezov Sampling's newest library, Wotan, is truly a next generation choir library. It features a new approach to building syllables that not only works for a good choral sound, but also gives you complete control over the individual samples. Wotan's 20 piece Male choir sounds massive and powerful on the loud end and delicate and strong on the softer side.  Wotan offers a new sound that isn't available on the market and will be one tool I know I can get consistent results with." Chris Harris The Samples Spotlight

"Once again, Strezov Sampling has exceeded expectations with this impressive new library!  Wotan is fantastic; working both by itself and in conjunction with other choir libraries. The sound quality, realism, controls, and ease-of-use have made it a permanent addition to my template. From epic to evil to haunting to solemn, it is sure to find a spot in your tracks as well." - Lawson Madlener from designingmusicnow.com

Fazit

Während es viele Orchester-Libraries gibt, sieht es bei Chören schon etwas schmaler aus. Allerdings bietet keine Library diesen Funktions-Umfang. Es ist wirklich erstaunlich, wie viel man mit den acht Silben erreichen kann. Dazu kommt noch ein Klang, der mich Out-of-the-box einfach umhaut und komplett überzeugt. Strezov Sampling arbeitet schon fleißig an der Frauen-Version von Wotan.

Delivering male choral voices, singing from a simple but flexible syllabary, Wotan offers an approach I hadn't seen before, clearly targeting composers of cinematic and theatrical compositions. Vocal quality is great, and features shouts and whispers. Vocal ensembles offer a bass/tenor split, allowing control of vocal colour. The user controls are intuitive, with both syllable sustains and flexible control of legato, and are easy to pick up and use mid-project. Syllables can be sequenced by a simple user interface, but the sequence can also be reset or indexed using MIDI notes, and this feature introduced a simple but major documentation problem. In the User Interface, the default notes for indexing are listed as A#0..E1, however in my system (Ableton Live 9), they are actually A#-1..E0. This was not documented, and I could find no way to change the UI. Moreover, bass notes are keymapped from G0..E3, which makes them appear to overlap the indexing, although they don't. This probably needs to be fixed in some UI graphics in a later release, but the confusion cost me half a day to detect and resolve, and is a trap for the busy or inexperienced user.

Very nice sound quality ... I'm very interested in Strezov Sampling now ... BUT ... I am annoyed by some samples having very noticeable clicks and noise in them ... As I have not had a chance to really work with it yet, hopefully a solution presents itself. Also, the dynamic control is either not there at all, or I am missing something .. which is entirely possible!
