Big Fish Epic Virtual Choir Software
Powered by the industry-leading KONTAKT Player engine, VOXOS contains world-renowned choirs and soloists with experience in recording for countless Hollywood films, trailers, video games and the concert stage. Recorded at the beautiful Bastyr Chapel, with its gorgeous acoustics, the choirs were captured with multiple microphone positions in 24-bit/48k 5.1 surround. The result is a pristine tone that sounds great right out of the box. VOXOS contains over 35,000 samples, at an uncompressed size of 35GB.

VOXOS is split up into three main sections:
Phrase Builder
The Phrase Builder is a powerful way of adding word syllables into a choir performance. VOXOS contains a 30 syllable selector matrix which allows you to quickly assemble multi-syllable phrases onto a grid. Each syllable will intelligently advance to the next syllable, based on your keyboard performance. If it's a sustain, the Phrase Builder can also connect one syllable over many notes, in a melismatic way.

Legato Sections
The Legato Sections contains true legato performances of Sopranos, Altos, Tenors, Basses, Boys Choir, Solo Boy, Solo Soprano and Solo Alto. Cinesamples has methodically recorded the tens of thousands of intervalic leaps within the ranges of each section. Their custom Legato script instantly analyses the keyboard performance and plays the appropriate interval sample. The result is an instrument that allows you to play smooth and emotional legato lines.

Built into Legato Sections is Cinesamples' innovative Voice Leading Engine (V.L.E.). The V.L.E. allows you to play a full keyboard patch of S, A, T, B choir with independently moving legato lines. The engine instantly analyzes the chord structure and assigns each pitch to its own section of the choir. The result: a patch that is easy to play, with incredibly realistic results.

Choir Effects
VOXOS contains over 500+ Choir Effects suitable for film, TV and game music. There are hundreds of shouts, whispers, grunts, clusters, screams and trailer risers, perfect for any media project.

About the project:
Recorded in Seattle
Seattle has long since become the recording center of the A-list video game/trailer soundtrack world. As it happens, the VOXOS sessions were recorded following Bungee's Halo Reach sessions and proceeding Blizzard's monumental World of Warcraft; Cataclysm. The musicians involved in this project are constantly participating in such high profile acts as these. In fact, some of the men sang on the famous Gregorian-style intro to the original Halo videogame for Xbox. Bastyr's main stage chapel offers one of the highest quality recording venues in the country. Its unique acoustic signature is akin to Symphony Hall in Boston and the retired Paramount Scoring Stage in Los Angeles. An extremely flattering hall for vocalists and instrumentalists - contributing to the familiar Hollywood style reverb bed without the tasteless metallic tinge and never ending ring-out that the majority of cathedral's give. Combine that with the highest end recording gear available and the table is set for excellence.

Children's Choir/Boy Soloist:
To really get an accurate representation of Los Angeles-style soundtrack choirs, Cinesamples had to include a boys children's choir and soloist. The 15-piece boys choir covers roughly the range of the Altos transposed up by a major third. The solo boy was captured from C3 to A4. With an amazingly transforming tambre - the purest sound imaginable in his soprano and a charming inward sound in his lowest third.

Hand Sculpted Scripted (true) Legato
The true sectional legato covers the full ranges of the Sopranos, Altos, Tenors, Basses, Boys and Soloists. After much trial and error, Cinesamples was able to formulate a recipe for recording legatos in the most musical and accurate manner possible. It may not be evident while playing the patches how many samples you are triggering back and forth but it is mind blowing when you stop and look at the audio files involved in one patch, at one microphone position. On the surface things seem simple, but much is going on under-the-hood.

During programming all 35,000 samples and transitions are meticulously tightened by hand. This process takes fresh ears and cannot be rushed or automated. The charming human inaccuracies which give live performances vibe and soul also cause issues when aligning samples during programming. The producers tweaked the legatos for over six months - still making final tweaks the moments before delivering to Native Instruments for encoding.

The Voice Leading Legato Engine - Live SATB representations from one MIDI track
They call it voice leading for a reason. From day one, composers of all styles are taught the value and importance of proper voicings. It all begins with SATB, the notable 4-part chorale diagrams in music textbooks all over the world. It is the basis of all chorale writing, the foundation of jazz ensemble writing - the glue of all composing. It was something the producers had to address, and address from the point of view of a composer under the anxiety of an approaching deadline.

The included SATB Voice Leading Engine can take incoming MIDI data sent from a piano track and assign the proper notes to each section automatically. Resulting in properly voiced chords with full legato from one track. No settings, its all intelligently scripted and prepared. This is a monumental time saver.

Phrase Builder - Intuitive Simplicity - A Defined Approach From Day One
Way back, months before a note was recorded, the entire final product was thought out, sketched, and tested. The producers knew they wanted to stay in KONTAKT. They knew they wanted to avoid artificial word synthesis - aka Apple Talk or the Steven Hawkings effect. They wanted to have as simple and powerful a phrase building interface possible with the ability to enter all word data only once with just a few clicks with no external programs running. They also wanted the engine to keep track of the words no matter the articulation - long or short. They also made it so it would use the absolute minimum of MIDI CC controllers possible and be processor-friendly to your computer.

Through process of elimination, they were able to create a truly monstrous phrase building engine, streamlined for simplicity and accuracy. It's created for the guys and gals who don't read instruction books or have time to learn the intricacies of a poorly produced/overly complex library. Watch the "Phrase Builder" video for all you need to know about their industry-first Matrix Phrase Builder.

Fully Scripted Dynamic Control
The producers tried every single method of dynamic and vowel morphing available via KONTAKT including the AET simulation. After double-blind listening tests with some of their most trusted audio gurus, the decision was unanimous. This method doesn't use simple envelopes for simulated fading but rather uses powerful scripting to guarantee a 100% accurate and smooth dynamic morph.

5.1 Ready - Full Mix Option - 4 Mic Positions
VOXOS was recorded in cinematic 5.1 in 4 microphone positions. To save polyphony, take advantage of the pre-mixed Full Mix position, a standard mixture of the spot, tree and ambient mics bounced down to one track. If you prefer to make your own mix you have unprecedented control over 4 microphone positions including the surrounds, which can be placed in the rear speakers on a 5.1 setup.
