    Miroslav strings v2.0 and Extended choir

    Hi,

    How well can s-converter convert Miroslav strings v2.0 AKAI rom?
    And question for Holger...
    Does \"Extended classical choir\" has separate instruments for sopranos, altos, basses....?
    If not wich choir liberary does? I would like to build 4 tone chords with choir?
    Thanks

    Alex, we have just released the giga version
    of the string ensembles, and wood&brass
    ensembles for the Miroslav library.

    If you still want to use the akai version
    we recommend raising the velocity by
    6 db all the way around.
    Some release points may also need to be
    adjusted, but those you would notice
    right away if you\'ve heard the library before.
    All around the s-converter does a great job.

    You would not however, have the great programming of the native version.

    No, the extended choirs has only mixed choir sounds like ohh, uhh, ... zzz and lots of effects. You have no transposition effects, because every key has a own sample, looped about 6 s !

    Thanks to all,

    Holger, one thing is still not clear...
    If I load the bigest patch from extended choir and press c-1 will I hear all the choir sing c-1 or just the basses?
    I mean whats the point if you can\'t write chords?

    Re: Miroslav strings v2.0 and Extended choir

    In the lower range there are only the basses, of course, the mid range is mixed male/female and the upper range is female. But you cant write a chord e.g. C2 - male, D#2 female or so. The choir is pre-mixed.

    Re: Miroslav strings v2.0 and Extended choir

    Thank you Holger,

    Now it\'s all clear to me and I like it...
    It sounds that the extended choir is the best choir liberary out there...
    I was wondering is there a web site with lots of info like this dedicated to all Peter
    Siedlaczek\'s products? Like the www.marcati.com for Miroslav(great web site IMHO)? I know for www.bestservice.de but that\'s not the same thing..

    Thanks,

    Hi Peter -

    One more question, please...

    Is this native GS-version still with short loops
    or did you really work over the complete samples
    and make them longer before starting to repeat?

    So I mean - did you only make a dedicated GS-Version
    by using GS\'s performance-possibilities (like dimensions) or did you really enhance
    the samples for streaming EndlessWaveTechn.?

    Thanx in advance

    Manfred

    The strings and wood&brass ensembles
    are not the looped only disks. That only
    takes place in our mini disk. The mother
    library offers both looped and un-looped
    patches. We have taken advantage of the
    new key switch technology with all instruments. A typical key switch would be,
    long notes
    Detache
    Staccato
    Long notes looped
    Tremolo
    Pizz
    No Vibrato
    No Vibrato looped
    with - Mod wheel additional tremolo
    footpedal- staccato

    You\'ll have to forgive my lack of technical expertise in some of these \"Giga terms\"
    such as the (wave tech stuff).
    However the mechanical programming was
    done by Dave Govett of Nemesys, with Miroslav
    doing the musical editing. That to me translates into a quality disk.
    Patches are re-edited and re-tuned to provide
    the smooth transition between key switches.

    What you can do with this , and how fast you can do it is a sight to marvel at. I was
    very impressed in hearing this 2 disk set.

    I myself have not seen a better combo in
    sampler/samples.

    to alex: I like the extended choir very much, but also great is the symphony of voices. The whole library has a natural, sometimes very mysterious sound and lots of special phrases, e.g. operatic lines or a boys choir. The only thing is the sometimes big sampling intervals which leads to strong transposition effects. But sounds great. Just 4 information!

    Re: Miroslav strings v2.0 and Extended choir

    Thanks Holger,

    Is there an MP3 demo of extended classical choir on the net?
    And could you tell me is it possible to load Advanced Orchestra full set in Gigasampler, and how much RAM would it be neaded for this?
    Thanks,

    Alex
