The new Requiem Light is a powerful and innovative professional Latin choir library featuring 40 world-class singers, fully captured in one of San Francisco’s oldest Cathedrals, the historic St Paul’s Church. Featuring renowned conductor Robert Geary and members of the SF Choral Society, SF Symphony Chorus and Volti, Requiem Light delivers a rich, lush and vibrant sound that has been tailored specifically for even the most demanding professional trailer, soundtrack and symphonic scoring needs. Now at version 2.5, Requiem Light has evolved well beyond it’s humble origins and now offers cutting edge programming, playability and user control, with an ultra-efficient resource footprint. With a full range of ensemble and male/female divisi round-robin staccato syllables, thunderous sustaining marcato words, tempo-syncing poly-syllabic Latin liturgical chants, a full range of custom-blendable vowel sustains and a mountain of classic and exotic choral effects, you’ll find a full range of intuitively sampled choral building blocks to sculpt with. All Latin chants, staccatos, marcatos and vowels have been chromatically and dynamically sampled. It features full chorus true legato for ah, eh and oh vowels, in smoothly blending pp-ff dynamic layers and real-time cross-vowel morphing. It also includes our premier 1st soprano soloist Kristen Brown and our 1st tenor Michael Mendelsohn. In addition, there’s a deep selection of custom sound-designed choral pads, ambiences and soundscapes, an integrated array of custom room reverb impulsess and DSP effects, as well as hundreds of choral effects including whispers, shouts, clusters, demonic chants, sweeps, syllables and raw consonants, claps, snaps, chatters, drones and much, much more.
Requiem Light was recorded with 12 microphones, in matched stereo pairs ranging from ultra-close to far. Each sample has been hand-mixed down into a perfectly well-balanced pristine stereo blend that provides unmatched quality, depth, power, tone and body, while allowing far more efficient use of your system resources and total ease of use. Requiem Light is intended for users who want a professional choir library at their fingertips right out of the box, without the tradeoffs of bulk, resource load or unnecessary complexity. It’s designed to punch straight through any mix like no other choir library, with plenty of fluid subtlety for more delicate passages.
All Latin Poly-syllabic Sustaining Chants (“poly-sustains”) feature tempo-syncing (K5 TMPro Engine), with optional fully polyphonic synchronized in-phrase legato that allows you to play up to 3 fully independent range-adjustable melodies at once, without interrupting the chant. You can also blend and transition between any two chants together freely at any time, with our fluid layer building and blending controls. Full automatable Offset, Attack and Release controls allow you to shape nearly every aspect of the phrase and weave complex variations and organic performances.
The library contains sustains and polyphonic true legato from piano to forte, covering 3 primary vowel sounds, six vowel sustaining variants with separate male and female patches and extended ranges, staccato with 2X round-robin, new and improved ultra forte sustaining marcato with releases, custom phrase-builder, latin chants recorded at different speeds across the entire interval of choir with playable real-time legato functionality, hundreds of choral effects including whispers, shouts, clusters, demonic chants, sweeps, consonants, claps, snaps and other effect types.
The included Convolution Reverb effect features 74 select custom impulse responses recorded from some of our favorite locations. Among those are also fx impulses which are more special effect than reverb.
