EastWest releases Hollywood Choirs

Award-winning sample library developer EastWest just released Hollywood Choirs, a ground-breaking new symphonic vocal virtual instrument. Produced by Doug Rogers and Nick Phoenix, Hollywood Choirs is the long-awaited 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’ blockbuster choir is comprised of both a powerful female and male section. The women sound angelic, dramatic, and ethereal; the men sound deep, rich, and thundering. Together they seek to deliver unprecedented dynamics and shocking realism.

Hollywood Choirs delivers the powerful, blockbuster sound that all composers are seeking and opens up new 3D soundscapes that will help create incredible and emotional journeys for your audiences for many years to come.

“In the past 12 years, there have been many attempts by others to improve on what EastWest/Quantum Leap achieved with Symphonic Choirs. 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.”

– Nick Phoenix, Composer & Founder of Two Steps From Hell

“Hollywood Choirs is the third choir EastWest/Quantum Leap has sampled,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.”

– Doug Rogers, Founder of EastWest
