Review: 8Dio Liberis KONTAKT - A Heavenly Children's Choir
If you are looking for a realistic and expressive children's choir library for Kontakt, you might want to check out 8Dio Liberis KONTAKT. This library features the professional 45-piece Piedmont's Children's Choir, led by choral conductor Bob Geary. The choir was recorded in a beautiful A-frame shaped church with three microphone positions (close, mid, far), giving you full control over the sound and ambience.
8Dio Liberis KONTAKT offers a variety of articulations and features for the choir, including true layered legato, multi-vowels, soloists, and effects. The true layered legato allows you to play smooth and realistic transitions between notes, depending on the velocity of your keyboard. The multi-vowels let you create custom phrases and words with different vowel combinations. The soloists include one boy and two girls, each with their own set of sustains and multi-vowels. The effects section contains over 1,000 samples of consonants, clusters, sweeps, whispers, shouts, chirps, children's songs, claps, snaps, and more.
The library also comes with a user-friendly interface that lets you switch between articulations without loading additional patches. You can also adjust parameters such as amp envelope, pitch envelope, filter options, gate, stereo delay, compression, convolution reverb, and more. The library is powered by Kontakt 5.8.1 Full Retail (or later) and requires 7.84 GB of disk space.
8Dio Liberis KONTAKT is a great choice for composers who need a realistic and versatile children's choir library for their projects. The choir sounds angelic and expressive, and the library offers a lot of flexibility and customization options. Whether you need a full ensemble or a solo singer, 8Dio Liberis KONTAKT can deliver stunning results.
