Hollywood Choirs gives you an excellent way to transform the quality of your cinematic compositions or simply give you another powerful resource to build outstanding productions - and you can type in any word into the WordBuilder engine and hear it performed in real time.

I don’t think I’ve heard as lifelike and as flexible a sampled choir as EastWest Hollywood Choirs.

WordBuilder Interface

WORDBUILDER 2

Using WordBuilder 2, you can type in any word or phrase and the entire choir will sing it in perfect unison. The built-in English, German, Italian, Spanish and Latin phrases give you a wide range of artistic potential, and you can string them together to effortlessly achieve an imposing result in minimal time. Every phrase can be tweaked and re-written, ensuring you get up and running immediately. And if none of the 781 pre-built phrases give you the starting point you need, you can easily type the exact phrase you need into the WordBuilder engine and hear it reproduced perfectly.

Updates Include

  • All New Phonemes
    • New vowels and consonants added for increased realism, with the ability to stretch or compress individual phonemes as desired.
  • Frequency Dependent Consonants
    • Non-pitched consonants now sampled with high and low frequency variations.
  • Global Phoneme Balance
    • Vowels, Pitched Consonants and Non-Pitched Consonants have volume sliders that allow you to adjust the relative balance between phonemes.
  • Independent Handling
    • All consonants that fall at the end of a word are now handled independent of those that begin a word, resulting in more realistic delivery of words.
  • Consonant Volume Scaling
    • WordBuilder detects the number of notes in a chord and applies volume scaling to consonants to ensure they remain at an intelligible level.
  • Alternative Takes of Non-Pitched Consonants
    • Instead of using a traditional 'round robin' system that cycles through alternative takes, often leading to inconsistent results, you can define which alternative take sounds best and Hollywood Choirs will use that across every phrase.

What immediately becomes apparent with EastWest’s Hollywood Choirs – even before one engages the deep WordBuilder option – is that this is easily the best sounding choir on the market. From media composers to more traditional composers, Hollywood Choirs certainly is a front-runner for Virtual Instrument of the Year.
