Ok, so I have Extended Classical Choir and Voices of the Apocalypse.
I, for months now, have swayed backed a forth about purchasing Symphony of Voices.
I understand that Miroslav has a new choir library coming soon but I already have
too much invested in choirs. So, just to round things out...SOV, is within my budget.
Here is the part where I sell myself:
I like the ideal of a darker, more mellow choir.
I like the ideal of a naturally ambient choir.
I like the ideal of phrases, articulations and effects.
So, now for my question:
Can users of SOV give me a few reasons why they like and currently use it
and a few reasons why they don\'t?
Also, King had mentioned how Giga will convert a sample that has 2 velocities into 2 giga files
for example) so, with that said I assume its a ton of programming to get SOV full giga ready.
Thanks again and again and again and again (must be a loop )

I just like the library period!
Its definitely a more mellow sounding \'london\' choir then VoTA, but you also get boys choirs, gregorian choirs, phrases, solo soprano and male tenor multisamples, effects, etc.
A very cool CD.
Ask Ilio to send you their free \"Jukebox\" demo CD of 9 or so short demos from SOV. I think you\'ll like it.

The ChickenSys convertor will keep the different velocities/dynamics (p/f) in one gig file...at least the new one will. Regardless of whether you get SoV that tool is a good purchase, if you might buy future Akai/Emu,Roland,etc. libraries.
SoV and Vocal Planet are great libraries...different enough from VotA to warrant their purchase for me.
Go for it Francis! It\'s like a 6 or 7 CD set of nothing but killer choir sounds, swells, boys choir (for that Elfman like sound), lyrical phrases and fx.
I think it was the second CD ROM I bought and I still love it and find it very usable.
If you got the dough and need mellow choir sounds it\'s totally worth it dude! .
You\'re gonna love the \"lamenting\" and \"lyrical\" soprano phrases. They\'re gorgeous.
Oh, and the gregorian monk stuff is fantastic as well!
Here\'s a tip though...If you\'ve got enough hard drive space, just take the larger samples and leave the \'lite\' ones so they won\'t take up more space on your hard drive.
