Soundiron are proud to present the latest chapter in their series of powerful, flexible and exquisitely recorded virtual choral libraries: The Venus Symphonic Women’s Choir.
Soundiron took all they learned from recording previous choirs and applied them here to make certain Venus is extraordinarily playable, diverse and stunningly beautiful.
With Venus, Soundiron are aiming for versatility. Instead of focusing on one language, the library offers both Slavonic (Russian) and classic Latin content, so composers can explore even more flavor and realism. Soundiron spent 10 days in their favorite church recording the 33-voice women’s chorus, featuring top notch talent from Volti, SF Symphony Chorus and the SF Choral Society, capturing all of the delicate nuances of the female human voice. Venus is all about power, clarity and fluidity. It includes 2 mic positions (stage and hall) so composers have the flexibility to incorporate the brilliant, natural sound of Venus easily into their mix. Now finally Venus has risen in the night sky, to join her Male counterpart Mars.
Venus features a full 33-voice female chorus and 5 soloists, singing in Latin and Slavonic (Russian liturgical), inclduing a full range of standard vowel and consonant sounds. A wide variety of content is included for both languages, as well as a large collection of choral effects (shouts, sweeps, clusters, etc.).
2 masterfully mixed composite microphone positions (stage and hall), carefully blended from an array of 12 discreet large diaphragm Neumann Microphones, with wide pairs ranging in distance from 1 meter to 25 meters. Surround mixing is made simple, with the best balance between placement, flexibility and performance, without compromising the truly awesome sound these women deliver.
In addition to the true legato chorus sustains, ALL sustaining articulations in the library include 3-part polyphonic pseudo-legato (all vowel sustains, fast & slow polysustains, soloist vowel sustains, soloist slow & melodic poly-sustains).
Venus also features a unique bonus collection of Ambiences, Drones, Textures and FX content.
