This is a Multi-sampled instrument. The configuration and setup is very simple. The GUI offers no actual parameters to tweak and the setup is as simple as dropping the files on your hdd, opening Kontakt and pointing the browser to them. Once loaded, just pick the choir or choirs you want and you are off.

SOUND QUALITY

In my opinion, the samples are not varied much. You get four choirs (angels, demons, men, women) and each contains a few presets like "ohs" or "ahs" or effected or mod wheel controlled. Having those options does increase the flexibility of the set, but I honestly don't find much character difference between men choirs and demon choirs or the Angels and the women. In fact, the demon choir doesn't sound demonic even in the slightest. It just sounds like another male choir. I run this on a Macbook Pro i7 with 8gb ram with a RME FireFace 800 running Kontakt as standalone or in Ableton/Logic. Although not varied as much as I would like, the samples do sound pretty good and would fit decently with most styles of music.

OVERALL OPINION

What I like most about it was back in the day, this was a very solid choir sample set. As it stands now, it just doesn't have the flexibility or the options that I need. What I do't like about it is the fact that the Demon choir doesn't sound demonic. I didn't do any research when I bought it in "07, so I was disappointed with that. I believe I paid something around 80 or $100 for this, but I can't remember. At this point, I wouldn't buy this as there are so many better options out there. I give it a 8 out of 10 for sound quality. The samples sound good, but slightly dated. I now use Voxos Epic choir which is unbelievable and puts this set to shame, of course it costs a heck of a lot more. I don't recommend this sample set to anyone. I am not sure if it is for sale anymore anyway, but there are a lot better options out there so pass this one by.
