Olympus Choir Micro is the official introductory pack to our mighty Olympus Symphonic Choral Collection, but it goes much further than that. This light-weight, user-friendly choir instrument stands alone as the perfect tool for musicians who just need a basic choir in their mix, without all the fuss. Divided into matching men's and women's divisi sections, Olympus Micro includes a classic set of great-sounding 'Ah' and 'Oo' vowel sustains, with both natural and smooth "pad" modes. It also offers a pair of synchronized Latin and Russian sustaining words (called "polysustains"), as well as 'Ah' and 'Oo' staccato syllables.
Featuring content from our acclaimed Olympus Symphonic Choir Collection, this choir was recorded in a large, natural hall with 63 hand-picked singers from SF Choral Society, Volti, SF Opera and the SF Symphony Chorus, conducted by maestro Robert Geary. The massive Olympus Choral Collection was designed for professionals in mind, with over 44 GB of content, over 40,000 samples and hundreds of distinct articulations to provide a total scoring solution ideal for any professional composer. We know how daunting such a huge collection can be and the significant investment it represents, so we designed this Micro pack as a fully functional and playable kit to offer just a taste of the enormous possibilities that our full Olympus Collection offers. Yet it can also simply serve as an great-sounding basic stand-alone choir instrument for anybody that just needs a basic full, warm choral sound with a world-class sonic richness and fidelity. Whether you're curious about our Olympus Symphonic Choir, or you're new to virtual choirs, Olympus Micro is the perfect low cost and easy way to begin your journey.
