I don\'t have SOV, so I don\'t know it\'s exact content. However, I do have Quantum Leap Voices of the Apocalypse. VotA is very good, but I would use it mostly for dramatic/intense stuff. It is very well done, and contains many pitches vowels and consonants. The vowels are sustained, and loop. You can adjust vibrato with the modwheel, using crossfading from non-vibrato samples to vibrato samples.
You my also like Diva. (I don\'t have that one either.) [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] Diva is female soloists, so if you need male choirs, you\'re out of luck with Diva.
I think it would be hard to substitute SOV. I bought it last year and it was 5 of the best hundred bucks I\'ve ever spent. I love it. I think Bela\'s products will be great and I\'ll likely buy all of them this year, but I doubt any of them will replace/be equal to SOV. That\'s my 2¢
I think SOV is a great value. I\'ve converted my Akai disks to Giga and created some nice crossfade layers for sustaining pads like ahs-ees, ohs-oos, etc. I mostly use the pop vocals, but the boys choir and solo voices are very nice as well. The Gregorian voices are useful for atmospheric treatments. For me, this library has held up very well over the years.
