I am a big fan of the EWQLSO and it has had a major impact on my orchestral template. I have been waiting with much anticipation for the EW/QL Choir. I went online to listen to the demos.. and I wasn't getting the same feeling I got when I heard the EWQLSO for the first time.
I thought "well.... maybe the demo's don't do it justice (no disrespect to the finely written demos)... maybe I should go listen to it in person at the store."
I went down to my local music store, they had it loaded into a Mac G5... and I started to audition it.
The first patch I loaded was the Church ensemble Ahhs modwheel (sorry about the name... I'm going by memory)... and right away I noticed that the Altos had a different release than the Tenors... the Tenors having a much quicker release. I found that playing block choir chords was difficult because of the way the different Voices sustained/released.
I was a little dismayed by my overall first impression, and I asked the sales guy if this was an old NFR version for demos or if this was the latest version. He said it was the latest.
Was I hearing things??? Is it possible that the presets got messed up?
Am I alone in these observations?
