Very impressive! Are those vibratos heard at the end of the very first few notes sampled?
They sound a tiny bit exaggerated to me, but that\'s only a matter of personal taste. The samples sure sound great.

It is supposed to sound like old movies. There are also aahs with normal vibrato and no vibrato, sung by the large womens choir.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>
The intro sounds 100 percent better Nick with those Angels. Great sound! I like the \"old movie\" idea
Thanks. I\'m just using the stock library. I have hired Dave Govett to work on the free update. I will tweak it and make it available for download in about 4 weeks. The update will have a slower attack option for all the patches, vowel crossfades eh>ee, oo>oh etc. and some other things probably.

I second that. I would add that a fair amount of talent must have come into play, as well. Superb!!!
BTW, does the demo comprise excerpts from earlier works, or did you compose those segments specifically for the demo? If the former, where might we hear the full works?
P.S. I heard a Lord of the Rings trailer last night, and it sounded as if it was using VotA. Of course, TV speakers against the backdrop of three kids bouncing around the house didn\'t allow for a close listen, but I was struck by how similar parts of the trailer sounded to your \"Carmina Burana\" excerpt in the earlier demo.
