Soundiron Olympus Elements

$99.00

“Well as you may know, Soundiron makes some pretty awesome, high quality choir libraries.  Olympus is their full mens/womens choir collection (MARS and VENUS), with tons of mic positions, languages, articulations, phrases, and all types of fancy tools. While those are no doubt amazing, I longed for the day they would do a scaled down version of the mixed choir for those mainly interested in sustains and ambient patches. That's exactly what Olympus Elements is!

That’s not to say it’s “limited” because I truly feel that with the sustains, vowels, phrase builder, ambiances, and the included articulations, this library will deliver all the choir sound many people will ever need.  This library delivers a really deep choir toolset that doesn’t overwhelm you with options, while at the same time not skimping on it’s usefulness.”
