Question Any tricks to my Hollywood Choirs vowels sound more legato?

I'm arranging Ave Maria for SATB, and it really sounds great. But if a vowel is held during note changes, it sounds kind of disconnected. "Maria" ends up sounding like "ma-ree-hee-a". Eeeee sounds like eeee-hee-hee. Are there any tricks to make it sound more legato?

Make sure that your midi notes are not slurred together (as in: overlapping). This may sound counter intuitive, but WordBuilder works best when you have distinctive note endings. And remember that while it is good at emulating the human voice, this is the most difficult instrument to emulate realistically, so if you are going for a realistic mockup of a well known traditional, it's a lot of work.

That's how it turned out. Pretty darn good, if you ask me. Now I'm planning on doing Schubert's Ave Maria: I found the chords, and I'm gonna arrange it from scratch. I found a book on arranging for 4 part harmony for $1 at a used book store.

With the Choirs instrument, I found that a single melody line shows some of the imperfections more than if there's harmony going on.
