Requiem Light is a professional symphonic choir library specifically designed for epic cinematic scoring and dramatic trailer composition, packed with a huge mix-ready sound in a supremely light ram and disk footprint. Whether you use it in your studio or take it on the road, it has a rich, dynamic cathedral choir sound that's equally perfect for achieving soaring fortissimo power or sculpting delicately soft melodic detail. This library is Powered By the Native Instruments Kontakt Player engine (VST, AU & AAX Plugin formats) and supports all Komplete Kontrol software and hardware.
This library includes three true legato vowels, a variety of classic vowel sustains and staccatos, single-syllable Marcato words, long poly-syllabic Latin sustains and fast, aggressive Latin staccatos, as well as a big selection of classic and uniquely creative dynamic choral effects, a great collection of emotive solo soprano and tenor polysustains and a selection of sound-designed atmospheric pads, drones and choral atmospheres.
All of this content is wrapped in a newly redesigned intuitive and flexible graphical user interface for easy parameter shaping, real-time articulation layering and switching, fluid legato, customizable section blending and a fully-integrated syllable and phrase step sequencer. We’ve also included our modular FX rack, including 119 of our favorite custom reverb spaces. With a clean and responsive interface, pristine acoustic fidelity and excellent vocal performances, Requiem Light is your new go-to for classical and cinematic lead choral arrangements.
We recorded Requiem Light in the massive sanctuary hall at historic Saint Paul's in San Francisco and conducted by award-winning maestro Robert Geary with hand-picked members of Volti, SF Symphony Chorus, SF Opera and the San Francisco Choral Society. The choir was captured with 12 large diaphragm microphones and expertly mixed and mastered into a perfectly-balanced stereo image. This instant mix-ready master mix provides you intuitive ease-of-use and resource efficiency right out of the box, without the usual system resource and performance cost.
The library contains polyphonic true-legato sustains for full unison choir, with essential Ah, Eh, and Oh vowel types with smooth piano-forte dynamic cross-fade control. It also includes men's and women's divisi sustains for six common vowel sounds (Ah, Ee, Eh, Ih, Oh, and Oom). There are 24 staccato syllables with round-robin and 16 ultra-forte sustaining single-syllable marcato words to choose from, with integrated phrase-sequencing.
We also include 20 fast and 12 slow multi-syllable Latin words with time-stretching, tempo-synching, and legato control. It also features 10 expressive poly-sustain articulations for Tenor and Soprano soloists.
You'll also find hundreds of dramatic and creative choral effects including clusters, demonic chants, glasses, swells, sweeps, consonants, shouts, stomps, breaths, claps, snaps, and more. You can also choose from 119 custom convolution reverb and FX impulse responses to place the choir in different environments or create unique atmospheric and special textural effects.
The library also offers a variety of uniquely sound-designed atmospheric and choral pad content for underscoring, layering, EDM and ambient songwriting, soundscape creation, and more.
