Soundiron Olympus Micro Choir review

14

Hey what’s good fam! Got another goodie for ya!

You know I’m always trying to show things for various types of users and budgets, and it always seems that any good sounding choir library is definitely at the higher end of the price scale.

Well I have a treat for ya…it’s a taste of the Olympus Micro choir from Soundiron

Let’s check it out


So what is Olympus Micro?

It’s basically a “demo” kit of their full Olympus Symphonic Choir library.

The full library is made up of Venus and Mars their men’s and women’s choir libraries.

Micro is meant to let you get a taste of the quality, usability, and feel of the library.

It has a few patches, multis, and even some fx patches, which are cool.

Quick Specs

  • content: 80MB
  • format: kontakt 4.2 or higher, full version
  • price: $9.99

How does it sound?

This thing sounds really good man, I love the full choir patches.

The whole idea behind this product is to give you a demo of their full library. Well, for many, this can really be used in creative ways.

It only features one phrase, not a single sustained patch, and it also features two pad/fx type patches.

Even at such a limited quantity of patches or options, I wanted to show it because it just sounds so dang good!

I like that you get two different versions of the patches included, one with a nice cathedral sound to it, really gives off a great ambiance and tone.

What’s the bottom line?

If you’ve ever wondered what type of the line choir libraries sounded like, this is definitely your chance to see and use it for yourself.

I give Olympus Micro 4 out of 5 subs, it’s really a great way to get some top quality choir patches into your toolbox.

If it was a basic sustained patch I think it would be even better, but as it is, it’s still great.

This also got me wishing they would do a “middle of the line” library for those of us that don’t really need the full choir products with all the phrases and articulations.

If they did something that included a few different sustained ensembles as well as a collection of their creative fx/pad patches, I think it would be a hit!

Who knows man, I know I’d be happy if they did that at a “competitive” price-point and I’m sure I wouldn’t be alone 🙂

Anyway, go checkout Olympus Micro…seriously http://www.soundiron.com/instruments/choirs/olympus-micro/

*Update: Turns out you can actually play this library as a basic sustained patch too!

  2. Ha! Good review Joe. We were talking about this demo the other day. It is amazing. I agree with you on wishing they had a middle of the line or a choir “lite” package. I’d be on it!

    • yup lol, told you it was on the list 🙂 hahaha, I got it when they first put it out, I have some of their other choir stuff, but a lite, full choir ensemble package would be dope!

  3. They finally released a lite version of their Olympus bundle, it’s called Olympus Elements and there’s a lot of stuff at a good price!
