Can this free vst be used for commercial production? Are there any restrictions or other legal matters to consider? Where can I find some information concerning this issue?

Pretty good sound, would like to have some higher notes and specially longer samples. It cuts off so quickly for me

They are not great.. I have better, but the one I have is female choir. I can use this as a second channel to get male voices, but its not as great as the one I have on triple play built in patch. Still its playable and sounds good with chords.

In my opinion. Good: big library with "a","o","u","i","m" (30 voices) + library divided into: all, high, mid, mid2, low voices + good for background/textural use + good for chords + good to start composing choral music. Bad: - not enough high frequencies, to much low frequencies - need some work before use (eq, compresion, chorus e.t.c) - each instrument voice may need different work - few single sounds have some kind phasing (audible after eq) - hard to use in solo line - little to short: more then 3 sec each voice. Summary: as a free plugin it is very good. Thank you very much :)

Beautiful sound. Its the best free vocal VST I've found thus far.

The quality is a little iffy, but otherwise makes for good background harmonics.

I know very little about VST (just started exploring them), but I do a bit with audio, and I wanted to pass on to you a program you might like - "PaulStretch" (http://hypermammut.sourceforge.net/paulstretch/). It does some pretty amazing stuff with stretching audio, and it might help you with lengthening short samples (for instrument creation). Thanks for your hard work assembling these instruments (I discovered you via the VSCO2 Orchestra - exciting stuff!). God bless you and those you love!

Thanks WhiteLight. That looks like an interesting program. God bless you and yours.

BigCat - I ALWAYS get excited when I see a new BigCat VSt being posted. Thank you so much for all the time and effort you put into creating these, and for sharing them. I will never have Kontact, so I am always grateful for these VSTs you create. You have allowed me to have access to instruments I could never have dreamed of being able to use, especially the orchestral instruments. Regarding this VST, this is another wonderful VST, great sounds. I would have liked more sustain, but as you mentioned, this was the length of the samples and also that choir samples are rare. I love the fact that there are different "sounds" in this VST - not all just one sound, like "aaah" or "oh" - with this VST, I can switch things up and use various vocal sounds. So thank you again for creating and sharing this :)

Hey thanks for the kind words. While not the highest quality samples technically these choirs are pretty fun and as you say have some nice variety. Hopefully you can find some use for them and get around the shorter length. Cheers.

You are very welcome, BigCat, and you deserve nothing but kind words and thanks :) One thing people can do, if they find these samples too short, is to use your other choir VST which, if I remember correctly, does have longer samples but only the one "sound" and is EXCELLENT: http://www.vst4free.com/free_vst.php?id=2310

Tony Banks never had problems to arrange *around* the fact, that the mellotron has nearly same restriction. ;)

Ok, but mostly I use these kind of sounds (choirs, voices etc.) for long sustain background sounds. 4,2 sec. is patently too short for me. For someone else it maybe ok.

Try writing your chords, turning the sound to audio, then looping it :)

Well worth instrument, but one little drawback - samples are too short. Only 4-5 sec. It seems it no adjustable.

Yes they are sourced from Google's Nsynth samples and they cut every single sample at 4.2 seconds. Sadly lots of nice orchestral sustains cut short as well. Choirs are rare enough I thought it was worthwhile. Maybe I should only do the orchestral shorts, pianos and such in the future using these samples as they suffer less from the 4.2 second cutoff. We'll see what the response is.
