Arrow EastWest announces HOLLYWOOD CHOIRS



EASTWEST ANNOUNCES HOLLYWOOD CHOIRS

Hollywood, CA (June 26, 2017) - This fall (autumn) EastWest/Quantum Leap will release HOLLYWOOD CHOIRS. Produced by Doug Rogers and Nick Phoenix, Hollywood Choirs is the epic follow-up to 1999's Voices of the Apocalypse and 2005's Symphonic Choirs, the best-selling and most awarded virtual choir of all time.

HOLLYWOOD CHOIRS gives voice to a new generation of powerful cinematic vocals with unprecedented dynamics and shocking realism that unleashes a new world of choral possibilities. It features a new and improved WordBuilder plugin that allows the composer to type in any words in any language and have them be sung by the full choir or the individual male and female sections.

HOLLYWOOD CHOIRS Diamond Edition includes a 13 microphone-user-controllable setup (including a Neumann Dummy Head) designed for surround sound and virtual reality, which is particularly attractive for film, TV, and game composers.

"This is the third choir EastWest/Quantum Leap has sampled," says EastWest producer Doug Rogers, "we learnt a lot from the previous productions and Hollywood Choirs is the culmination of that experience. In particular, the choirs' ability to sing any word or phrase has been significantly improved resulting in much more realism; and there are many more sound options to enable the user to sculpt the sound to their requirements."

"In the past 12 years, there have been many attempts by others to improve on what EastWest/Quantum Leap achieved with Symphonic Choirs," says EastWest producer Nick Phoenix, "Small improvements were made to various aspects of choir sampling, but the emphasis has been on pre-recorded and severely limited phrases. If composers are not tired of hearing the same faux Latin phrases repeated over and over, those listening certainly are. No single choir virtual instrument has managed to deliver a fluid, intuitive and great sounding choir that was capable of singing any words in any language, soft or loud ... until now."

HOLLYWOOD CHOIRS delivers the powerful, blockbuster sound that all composers are seeking and opens up new 3D soundscapes to create incredible and emotional journeys for their audiences.

HOLLYWOOD CHOIRS will be available for purchase and as a free addition for ComposerCloud subscribers this fall (autumn) 2017.

Great to hear that Hollywood Choirs is coming! . What specific microphone positions will be available in the Diamond and Gold editions of the library? Since there seems to be a lot of them for Diamond alone!
