Hey what’s good fam!
Back from vacation feeling refreshed so it’s time to jump back into the good stuff.
Today I’m checking out a choir library from Soundiron called “Olympus Elements”
I’m super excited about this because it’s something I’ve personally asked about in the past.
So let’s just check it out.
What is Olympus Elements?
Well as you know, Soundiron makes some pretty awesome, high quality choir libraries.
Olympus is their full men/women choir collection (MARS and VENUS), with tons of mic positions, languages, articulations, phrases, and all types of fancy tools.
It’s also priced as such 🙂
Then they put out the Olympus Micro Choir for those that just wanted a small taste of the quality.
I longed for the day they would do a scaled down version of the mixed choir for those mainly interested in sustains and ambient patches.
Well…that’s what Olympus Elements is
- content: 3.77GB, 56 nki
- format: Kontakt 4.2 or higher, Kontakt Player 4.2 or higher, Kontakt 5, Kontakt Player 5
- price: $99 (regular price is $119)
- product page: http://www.soundiron.com/instruments/choirs/oe/
How does it sound?
Their choirs sound great, full, real, and amazing.
I have the Olympus Micro, VENUS, the Mercury boys choir, and Requiem Light, this library sounds exactly like the others in terms of quality, including the flagship Olympus choir.
That’s not to say it’s “limited” because I truly feel that with the sustains, vowels, phrase builder, ambiances, and the included articulations, this library will deliver all the choir sound many people will ever need.
I mean, I really don’t have much to say about the sound because it just sounds great!
I do like the way you can control the sound and I like how the voices naturally fade out in the shorter articulations.
You get plenty of control but honestly I found myself just playing the patches as is instead of tweaking much, they just sound great.
So what’s the bottom line?
If you’ve seen me showcase some of the other choirs from Soundiron and you’ve been hesitant to dive in because you felt it was either too little or too much, it’s time to jump.
This library delivers a really deep choir toolset that doesn’t overwhelm you with options, yet doesn’t skimp on it’s usefulness.
I give Olympus Elements 5 out of 5 subs, I think they really hit the nail on the head in terms of delivering a flagship quality choir library with the tools and price that anyone can enjoy.
You no longer have to be a professional or semi-pro to justify having some of the highest quality choir sounds available.
